Shopping: Colorfully Coordinated

Jun 19, 2014

Remember back in elementary school when you were SO concerned about everything matching perfectly, or was that just me? I went through this phase where my scrunch socks (you know you had a pair) had to match my leggings. Also, despite the fact that I lived in Miami where it was regularly sweltering, there were times when I would rock two pairs of socks, layered, to match my ‘fit. It was ridiculous. And I loved it.

I haven’t really been THAT concerned with matching since then… until now.

A couple weeks ago, I had lunch with Beth and she mentioned her hunt for the perfect coordinated short suit. Since I love a good clothing scavenger hunt and since we’re getting together again today, I thought I’d round up my finds.

When it comes to these, I’m opting out of the crop top options (but if you can rock it, by all means do). They’re just not right for my lifestyle (or body) now. I’m a bigger fan of the blazer options because it gives you the option of throwing in a little bit of solid to break up the prints.

I’m not quite sure where I’d wear the short/blazer combo – maybe a wedding or baby shower or girl’s night out. But I know I could get some solid use out of a cute skirt/top combo. Break the pieces apart or rock them together for work or even a wedding.

How do you all feel about the matchy matchy trend? You biting this one or letting it pass you by?
