Turquoise Summer Day

Summer feels so GOOD! And the best color for the summer is definitely turquoise :).  This color is associated with freshness, love, joy, and femininity. It’s not quite blue and not quite green. The dress I’m wearing is not a splurge but the color gives it this perfect summer vibe. Paired with brown suede sandals with a chunky heel it’s a great and easy look for either day or night.

Enjoy your summer!!!!

Same works for unexpected patterns or even clothes worn outside of their intended venue. Now, you have to be extra careful with that because a ballroom gown in the grocery store will definitely draw attention but it’s also guaranteed to get you a lot of weird glances.

Floral patterns are slowly making an entrance into the corporate world. But majority of women still reserve flowery dresses for a more casual weekend wear.

I, obviously, go with the bright choice 🙂

Have a colorful week everyone!
