Styling with Summertime Blues

I love when I get the opportunity to style Crystal (she's like my real size Barbie doll)!  She found this adorable off the shoulder dress from ASOS, which is currently on sale for $32.  My obsession for ASOS's affordable fashion (see Gingham dress post here) continues with all of their gorgeous blue choices.  I'm guilty of sticking to my usual black + white palette, but blue is a great option for adding color in the summer.  Crystal took this swing dress to get altered in on the sides and it made a huge difference with the fit.  People underestimate the power of alteration - it can transform a look from drab to fab.

ASOS Dress + Pom Pom Clutch + Yellow Shoes

Since I'm all about affordable fashion this summer (#adulting), another fave site of mine for easy on the wallet accessories is Accessory Concierge.  I paired this statement straw pom pom clutch with the dress for a pop!  Crystal already owned some eye catching yellow heels (similar ones here) and I thought they were the perfect compliment to the outfit.  Pairing a closed toe shoe with a summery look can create interest to the eye and it goes with our motto of #mixitup.  Blue is a great base color to add in several pops of color, and yellow is one of my faves to mix in with.

And last, but not least, our fab Beauty Consultant, Danna, has some great makeup tips to pair with your "summertime blues"!

Want to dazzle in blues, if your “cool” stick to jewel tones or navy, if you’re “warm” try lighter or pastel version. Complete your blue ensemble with a complementary make up look. Stick with a neutral eye shadow and try a red lip. If you’re cool, find a blue undertone red such as MAC lipstick in Ruby Woo or raspberry; if you’re warm go for an orangey red or coral such as Dose of Colors Liquid Lipstick in Coral Crush (undertone blog coming soon).

Remember there are no rules in fashion or make up. These are just suggestions to customize your wardrobe and makeup just for you by bringing out your natural radiance. Still a little scared to be so bold, just stick with a nude lip and play up your eyes. You’ll know when you find the right red, because it will make your eyes pop and your smile whiter. And just because we are talking about blue, I do love navy eyeliner on a blue eye. Try Bobbi Brown Long Wear gel liner in Cobalt Inc.

Happy coloring!
