summer fashion series day six - modern twist on a classic color combo


I'm sure it's no secret how much I love using pinterest as a spring board for all kinds of inspiration especially fashion.  My style board is one of my favorite to add pins to and it's where I found the inspiration for mixing orange, blue and white.

I just love the bold mix of color in this photo from My Style pinterest board.  I knew I had just about
everything I needed hanging in my closet (except the great bag) and so I thought I'd give it a try.

Here's what I came up with...

orange and blue with white jeans

I actually love this outfit all by itself for an average spring or summer day.  The bold orange with the white jeans and cobalt blue necklace are such a classic combination with a fun modern twist.

The inspiration photo shows it with a pretty blue sweater which would look great on a chilly night or even into the fall but I thought this cute denim vest would add the pop of blue and still keep it cool enough for a summer day.

I'm always looking for another way to wear my denim vest and over a bold color T-shirt is a great option.  It's that extra layer that helps pull an outfit together.  Along with the cobalt blue necklace, I added a few simple pieces of silver jewelry and cute navy flats.

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day surrounded by the people you love.  I spent the day with my mom and a whole lot of family including my four grandchildren who constantly remind me that the really important things in life aren't things at all and I can't think of a more encouraging word than that.

And just in case you missed any, here are the first posts in my summer fashion series.


  1. Really cute! I love those shoes. Are they comfortable?

  2. Adorable! That outfit could put a spring in anyone's step. The color is so happy :)

  3. Patty,
    It must be all the floral in bloom, dear friend,
    'cause I've been craving the orange (and hot pink) in my wardrobe, too!
    I'm loving' this look with the orange and cobalt blue jewelry!
    One thing your Fashion Series has shown me, is I need to update my "shoe" wardrobe!
    Have an amazing week ahead!

  4. Orange is a great color for you Patty. I've been loving orange lately too. It looks great with the cobalt and denim too. Glad to hear you had a great Mother's Day. You deserve it. Thanks for the fashion inspiration.

  5. I've never been an "orange" person, but sure love the look with the navy! and those flats are so darling! I bought a little T-shirt the other day from Kohls that is a peachy orange, so am anxious to try it with my white jeans and some navy blue as I think there's some blue in the T. But sure love the vivid orange of your T-shirt. I love brights for the summer too.

  6. Very interesting blog, looking forward to more wonderful! Replica Blair UK
