Color Crush: Turquoise

I’m having a little moment with turquoise.  I love wearing it with the obvious (white, denim) or the less expected… (bright colors like fuchsia, lemon, and mint green.)  Here are a few of my favorites.

From top left:   Makeup Bag // Ruffled Top by Tibi (on sale!) // Necklace by BaubleBar // Jeans (on sale!) // Christian Louboutin Sandals (die.) // Tassle Sandals (great price!) // Eddie Borgo Studs // Dress (at the top of my wish list and on sale!) // High Low Skirt (surprisingly from TopShop!)  // Collar Necklace (major steal) // Draped Skirt (on sale!) // Slouchy Tee by Feel the Piece // Espadrilles (great price!) // Skull Bracelet by Jules Smith // Sandals by K. Jacques.

P.S.  I’m over at A Little Dash of Ash today, where I put together a round-up of some of my favorite preppy pieces.   Be sure to pop on over… her “Summer of Prep” series is so fun!

    Totally with you on turquoise, such a great colour!! I pair my turquoise with black and denim generally, but I’m digging the idea of pairing it with brights!!

    This color is amazeballs. The slouchy t and bauble bar necklace are my favorites. I was so close to buying that ASOS Minty dress you wore in your recent ” Minty” post- gorgeous. Looks fabulous!

    Love this color for Summer, it always enhances a tan so nicely. And I mean turquoise and coral together are just a match made in heaven!
