outfits spring style

My, My Miss American Pie

skirt: thrifted from Flashback Vintage; shirt: Old Navy (similar); shoes: Ross (similar); bow: American Apparel

A personal pet peeve of mine is too-literal styling. When it comes to red, white, and blue, I definitely don’t want to look like a walking banner of patriotism–this is fashion, not a flagpole. When I thrifted this skirt over the weekend, I assumed I’d wear it with breezy white tank tops and preppy pastels. Instead, I felt drawn to this top, despite its red-orange stripes.
I feel a little off-trend for picking such a bright (but not neon) color to pair with my pastel, but this look is timeless and transcends trends. Finished off with a strand of pearls and sparkly flats, I’m ready for a picnic and some quality time spent playing frisbee in the park.
What are some colors you avoid pairing together?
