Pantone Fall 2017 - The London Palette - Blue Bell and Lemon Curry

Last week I looked at two colors with more of an orange hue from the Pantone Fall 2017 London palette. This week I am going to introduce you to one of the two yellow hues on the palette. Lemon Curry is a spicy yellow that can add a bit of zing to your fall color combinations. I decided to combine this yellow with Blue Bell, a light soothing color. The combination results in an outfit that has both pizzazz and peacefulness.

My daughter had to teach me a few things about photography when she first sent me this grouping of pictures. The reality is that a camera does not see things the way the human eye does. Our human eye, unless they are unable to translate properly, see colors as they really are. A camera and the image it imprints onto a digital card is affected by lighting, exposure and other factors. 

When I saw these pictures, I texted my daughter and said, "This skirt does not look like it looks in real life." We went back and forth on it for a while and I finally told her to leave it alone. When we got together for my grandson's birthday party yesterday, she took the time to explain to me that a camera, no matter how fancy picks up what it thinks it sees, not necessarily what is really the fact. Who da thunk? Obviously the hombre skirt contains an underlying tone that the camera translates to more of an aqua blue, when in reality it is more of a navy or gray blue. Rebecca was able to adjust the pictures to make the skirt look more like the original color and I learned a few things about digital images.

For this post, it doesn't really matter, because the blue I am trying to match with the Blue Bell color is the top tier of the skirt, rather than the bottom tier. 

Once again, for this color combination I shopped my closet. I've had this tiered skirt for a while and usually wear it a few times over the summer months, as it is light weight, but also lined. The tee I've had for a long time. I love the pattern, the fit and the longer short sleeves, but I hardly ever wear it. When I came across it looking for something yellow, I realized this would be the perfect piece to represent Lemon Curry.

Even though the top contains some black and white you can clearly tell is has the spicy Lemon Curry vibe. 

To pull the look together I wore Blue Bell colored jewelry including my pendant necklace from Kohls and my bracelet from Chico's. I decided to used a brown bag to keep the look more grounded and earthy.

For shoes, I chose my simple SO flats. Yes, I know I keep wearing these for various outfits, but they are just so cute and comfy!

What do you think of the pairing of these two colors? Which color do you like better?

I think these two colors are perfect for fall and transition easily from summer.

Beautiful Blogger Bests - Graphic Tee and Bohemian Skirt

This week I am sharing a Beautiful Blogger named Debbie of Fashion Fairy Dust. The name of Debbie's blog, I think, suits her perfectly. She is a sassy red head who's sense of style includes edgy motorcycle jackets and boots blended with lace, ruffles and silk. The post that I derived inspiration from today is called Boho Print Skirt and Graphic Tee, and is the perfect example of Debbie's awesome style. You can read more on Debbie's About page where she shares a few fun tidbits about herself.

Doesn't she do a great job of pulling off this outfit with an eclectic vibe. The graphic tee, the leather belt, the floral print skirt with ruffle, and the converse sneakers are not items I would normally think of pairing together. After seeing Debbie's look, I was inspired to try it myself.

For my attempt I pulled out this fun printed maxi. Although the colors in this skirt are more, in my opinion, fallish, the skirt is very light weight, so perfect for spring and summer. To celebrate my tiny bit of French heritage, I found this Paris tee at a thrift store and loved it immediately.

I wasn't sure if this gray tee would work with the brown, orange and yellow of the skirt, but I think it did. What do you think? Instead of a leather belt, like Debbie wore, i went with a velvet fringe number and tied it on the side. This is one of those pieces that can work as a belt or as a scarf.

This scarf/belt is a fun piece due to the pretty bead work. I'm glad I thought to wear it with this outfit. I think it adds another element of texture and bling.

I love Debbie's statement necklace! I probably could have worn a statement piece that contained orange, yellow, or brown, but I decided to go simple since my shirt and skirt are rather busy. These chokers came as a set from Urban Outfitters. I like that you can wear them together or separately.

Debbie and I both went for the Converse, but mine are a mesh high top. These are a fun sneaker to pair with all sorts of things.

I love to see what different bloggers do and am so blessed to have a number of Beautiful Bloggers to chose from. They never cease to inspire me to try something new and sometimes outside my normal style. 

Be sure to click on over to Debbie's site and give her some love. We both appreciate the support.

My hubby and I are going to be heading out on vacation this evening, so in addition to my normal posts next week, you'll probably see a new Travel Log. I did this last year when we went to Florida. You can see those posts, by clicking on the links: Travel Log - Post 1,  Travel Log - Post 2, Travel Log - Post 3, and Travel Log - Post 4.

Hopefully we will have internet along the way some of the time. I hope you'll join me as we travel to Maine. I'll try to post outfits, food and of course scenery. Until then. Have a great weekend!
