Vibrant Summer Contest

Just want to tell everyone thank you for all your sweet comments from my last post.  It definitely made me smile.. and the Pirate says thanks too! :)

I recently entered Khatu's Vibrant Summer Contest and here is the outfit I submitted.  I normally love wearing color, so this challenge was a walk in the park for me. :)  I wanted to stick to more saturated and jeweled toned colors, so I stuck with my favorite color palette - blue.  (It's funny that I own so many blue pieces and only a couple of pink ones, pink is apparently my favorite color). 

{F21 dress | I.N.C. embellished cardi | BCBGeneration heels | Givenchy (thrifted) clutch | Banana Republic belt | F21 ring | Lucky Feather locket}


Take a look at the contestants here, and if you love my outfit, you can vote for me. :) Voting closes on Sept. 12th.  If not, that's okay too! No pressure.  I had a lot of fun putting this look together.

Happy Monday's lovelies.  Hope you're all enjoying the holiday off.  Happy Labor Day.  I'll be in the office all day.  Yay me!

Love, S

hey hun. i hope you win the contest cos ths outfit you put together looks great. i love the color combo. i think i need your advice to put some of mine together as well. u've definitely got an eye for it.

PetiteAsianGirl said...

You look stunning, miss Sharon! Lucky you with your closet full of vibrants...dull me here had a tough time pulling something together.

I couldn't believe that your cardigan is from INC. Is that the brand from Macy's? I don't think I've seen anything that chic from that department at Macys...! The shirred sleeves add such a kick to this outfit, not to mention the nude heels are killer. I hope you win!

Josie said...

You look so cute! Love how you've mixed these bright shades... That clutch is to die for!
