What I Want Wednesday- COLOR!

I hope that this color trend never wanes, because what I want this Wednesday is color, color, color! I love that we now have the freedom to mix unexpected colors together, and no bright is too bright.  I love that accessories don't have to match an outfit.  I love that monochromatic in today's fashion doesn't mean wearing the same color head-to-toe, but instead means wearing different shades of the same color together-giving an interesting watercolor effect. So give me color blocking, give me floral prints, and give me neon! I want it all! 

Check it out! I want:

 A floral bustier
goJane- $28.80

A high-low skirt in a pretty color
Forever 21-$22.80

 A Flowy Maxi Dress in a Bright Print

Some Cobalt Spiked Flats

A Denim Blouse
Victoria's Secret-$59.50

A Multi-Print Fabric Cuff
Etsy Online Shop "Jalmodovar"-$16.00

And a Raw Amethyst Long Necklace
Etsy Online Shop "The Little Happy Goose"- $35.00

With color, anything goes! Just make sure that when you're styling an outfit you mix in a neutral or two somewhere-maybe with your shoes or accessories.  We don't want to overwhelm the admirers of our outfits! 

I could style these pieces together or separately. For example, mixing two of these pieces together, I could wear the denim blouse over the printed maxi dress for a breezy summer night. Or I could wear the floral bustier with the high-low skirt (as long as the waistband sits above the bellybutton-I don't want to show too much tummy) and the multi-print fabric cuff for a night out.  The options are endless with these colorful and affordable pieces.

So, which piece is your favorite? And how would you style it?  Have fun!
