Poppy, Yellow Maxi & White Accents

When I see yellow, I often pair it with pink. It’s a combo that is used often, I think, and always looks great together. However, I’ve been wanting to try new color combinations lately, which has brought me to combine yellow with mint (as shown here and here) and now with poppy red. Instead of pink lemonade, it’s more of a strawberry lemonade :)

I thought the red would give a great contrast and pop against the yellow- what do you all think? I have to say, maxi dresses are so useful. They’re completely acceptable at work (my work, at least!), great for running around town, backyard parties, beach days- the list goes on. I highly recommend both casual and dressed-up maxi’s for your summer… they’re so versatile. I also try to find maxi dresses that are in unique colors or patterns, instead of a typical grey or black. Even navy or cobalt blue is better, to give you some edge. (Save the black for your LBD!).

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Cuando veo el color amarillo, suelo combinarlo con el color rosado. Es una combinación bien conocido y usado, y siempre se ve bonita. Sin embargo, he tenido muchas ganas de probar nuevas combinaciones de color últimamente. Por eso, combiné amarillo con verde menta (aquí y aquí) y ahora con rojo-naranja. En vez de limonada rosada, es limonada con fresa ;)

Pensé que rojo daría un toque de color y un contraste lindo- ¿qué opinan? Les confeso que los vestidos maxi son muy útiles, especialmente durante el verano. Los puedo llevar al trabajo yo, y también los uso para hacer compras, salir con amigos, asistir a fiestas, ir a la playa, etc. Normalmente, busco colores y estampados únicos, en vez de negro y gris, simplemente para tener un edge. (Usan el color negro para sus LBDs).

Gracias por visitar y feliz fin de semana,

    The sweater tie seems to be your signature as well! Totally agree that red is another perfect contrast against the yellow!
