White Eyelet Skirt, Turquoise Silk Tank and Yellow Cardigan

YELLOW CARDIGAN - Gap
TURQUOISE SILK TANK - Banana Republic
WHITE EYELET SKIRT - Express
MULTI-COLORED WEDGES - Cynthia Vincent for Target
TURQUOISE WRAP BRACELET - Made by my Mom
PINK TAIWANESE TURQUOISE NECKLACE - Jaclyn1423

Princess Sparkles and Pigtails never cease to inspire me with their fashion creations.  Of course 3yo Sparkles loves a tutu and she paired it with a "musical shoe."  I have to admit, I love red and turquoise together.  That girl has an eye for color!  Pigtails loves to wear everyone else's clothes (can't really blame her, it's always more fun in someone else's closet!).  She recently took one of my cardigans and turned it into a pair of pants.  Oddly, it matched pretty well too!

Cardigan "Pants"


Musical "shoe"
I know a few people asked me what I told Princess Sparkles after she asked me if the homeless man was Jesus.  I told her that I didn't think the man was Jesus, but I didn't know for sure.  Honestly, God has come in stranger forms than a homeless man (i.e. burning bush), so I didn't want to say it definitely wasn't him, you know?

Wanted to share with you all a beautiful new accessory I received a few days ago from my very first sponsor, Jaclyn1423.  She makes the most amazing jewelry and this piece is no exception.  It's Taiwanese turquoise and it's pink!!!  Definitely check out her shop, she has really great upcycled and vintage jewelry!  Here are just a few of her gorgeous pieces:

 

 
The great thing about fashion is you don't have to match...colors, prints, whatever.  The more out there, the better!  The next thing you know we'll be wearing a tambourine as a shoe and a sweater as pants.  I'm thinking Princess Sparkles and Pigtails might be ahead of the fashion curve!

***Linking this outfit up to Bloggers Do It Better!  Today is the neon/neutral trend and this is the closest thing I have since it's part of my Remix!!!

I approve of your Jesus answer; what if God were one of us. :)

Wish I had a pair of musical shoes. The yoke on your blouse is pretty.

Love this color combination - you look fabulous.

And well played on the Jesus answer.

Bug and Bird said...

Yay fun bold colors that look great with your complexion. I'm also a little iffy about wearing yellow, I'm half Filipina and have some yellow and olive undertones.

I like your answer about the homeless man being Jesus, we never know...

What a great answer to the Jesus question. After all, to the majority of his contemporaries Jesus WAS a homeless bum.

I LOVE this outfit. What a great color combo, and those amazing shoes tie it all together.

Looking fresh as usual. Your girls are just the cutest. Projecting a question a number of years from now--I wonder if they will be raiding each other's closets? They both seem to have very different takes on things.

Megan Mae said...

This is the epitome of a summer outfit. Blue, yellow and white. Cotton skirt and some lovely wedges.

Fashion Confessions of a Mommy said...

I love mismatching with fashion. It's fun to play with different colors and patterns and style ... It is super fun. That is my favorite thing about fashion. You can wear whatever you want in the moment.
Fashion is so beautiful.

Red and turquoise is a nice combo! I wouldn't have noticed unless you mentioned it. That colour combo kind of reminds me of Lanvin for H&M...Anyway, that was a good answer to the Jesus question!
