Styling Bright Colors – Summer Fun with Ageless Style

It’s time for our monthly Ageless Style link up and today the theme is Summer Fun! Thank you Daenel for a great and timely theme – we could all use a little fun right about now, do you agree?

Summer fun in my mind conjures up all kinds of notions of bright colors and patterns. Enter this stunning top. Gah, I am in love! The vibrant colors and print just scream, “have fun with me and mix and match me all kinds of ways!” I couldn’t agree more and could hardly help myself. I had so much fun.

A little note about this beauty. It’s from Gibson’s Hi Sugarplum collection. It is well made – honestly – it is lined and does not disappoint. I used code Sugarplum25 to save 25% and the shipping was free. I tried the code again and it is still working so use it and scoop up this stunner!

Look # 1 Bright Pants

This fabulous top looks so good with my beloved (and now an extra 70% off) wide leg cropped orange pants. Not only is this outfit eye catching (no way you can be a wallflower in this one) but it is cool and comfortable. A must for hot summer weather!

A little note here. I did a horrible job of tucking and the proportions are all off! Of course I didn’t realize it until much later and the weather did not cooperate when trying to re-shoot. So, um yeah, these look bad. It’s a shame because these colors are so pretty together. Oh well, #reallife

Look #2 White Denim

I love how this top goes from dressy to casual with a quick change white jeans. A terrific look for a happy hour or casual dinner out (social distancing style of course).

But how about a day when you are running errands and just want to throw on a pair of cut offs? See? Easy peasy.

With all the great colors in this beautiful top it will be easy to wear with a cardi or jacket as well. Living in a hot climate like I do makes this a top for all seasons!

Final Thought

I hope that this post inspires you to think outside the box. It’s easy to get into a rut and think of clothing in categories – you know, work clothes, play clothes, going out clothes. But honestly if you are buying pieces you love, that fit well, you can wear them different ways and get more bang for your buck!
