Happy Monday!

I hope you're all having a great start to your week! Today's look features a color combination that I love for summer, olive and aqua. When I was getting my outfit ready, I started off with the shorts and began to pair it with different tops, all went really well with them, but I felt they were all a bit predictable and very commonly worn with olive. I wanted to try something different using a color combination that I myself haven't seen many wear on the street. I had recently purchased this blouse at Marshalls and have been so eager to wear it and when I pulled it out of my closet and held it up next to the shorts, I felt they were a match made in heaven! What I love about this duo is that it would look great on every skin tone; the aqua has a tendency to make your skin appear healthy and glowy, a great contrast to olive which can make the skin appear a bit dull.  Speaking of skin tones, if you're not sure which skin tone you have and what colors would be ideal for you, check out my video on that very topic here! Now back to the look. I wanted to brighten things up more, so I added my favorite summer purse at the moment, my lime green Michael Kors crossbody. To finish the look, I added iridescent heels that have both an olive and aqua tone blended, which was perfect to bring the whole look together. 

What do you think of the pairing? I hope it gave you a different color combination to try out perfect for summer and which is certain to look great on you! Thanks so much for stopping by and come back again tomorrow for another post!
