If I had to describe this look, I would say it is “overall pleasing.” The colors are bright but at the same time, they are muted. Nothing is neon or glowing. All the articles in this outfit just flow together. And the accessories tie in beautifully with the overall color scheme. This is how to coordinate a look, 101.When Joe was in college, we always put 101 in our “how to” talks. That was the course number associated with whatever we were attempting to explain. The more complicated the subject, the higher the course level number would go. This is pretty simple coordination, so I am staying with the 101 level. I started this look with a pair of shoes, we will get to those later. I could have just as easily picked out this scarf, and started with it. So go to your closet and pick out a scarf, a printed top, or a pair of shoes. I’ll wait right here for you to get back. Haha! Now look at the item and name all the colors you see in the item. In looking at my scarf, I see pink, coral, white or cream, yellow, purple, and bright green.
I could have chosen any top that was one of those colors, and the outfit would still work. The first thing I picked was the coral (or melon) 3/4 cardigan. I was wanting to stay with ONLY the colors in the scarf and shoes, so I picked a pink v-neck t-shirt to go under the cardigan. This look flows, but if I had wanted the look to be more “in your face,” I would have chosen a top that was navy. Wouldn’t that have “popped?” My cardigan is by Maurice’s.

This one by Plunder had a lot of the same colors as the outfit, so I knew it would go with the coordination theme. There is a matching necklace, but since I had on the scarf I chose not to wear it.My hot pink leather tote by Vera Bradley worked perfectly with this outfit. This has been my go-to purse this summer. I never thought I would carry a purse that was this bright. But, I have carried it with almost everything, from dressy to casual.
Hot Pink Tote: Reversible | Two-tone | LeatherI know your eyes have feasting on these shoes. How cute are these pumps??? Nina Shoes contacted me back in the early part of the summer about styling a pair of their shoes. I jumped on the opportunity, (companies like Nina Shoes doesn’t come along everyday) and I immediately started looking for a “smart” pair of shoes. I wanted to pick a pair that I would be able to wear all summer long, and that is exactly what I did. Here is the post where I told you how I came to pick out my “Virginia” sandals.Then the other day, Danica from Nina Shoes emailed me, wanting to collaborate again. YIPEE!!! For one thing, I LOVE their shoes and couldn’t wait to pick out another pair. Secondly, it meant they liked my first post in order for them to want to work with me again! I felt like Sally Fields, “They liked me, they really liked me!” Lol! And thirdly, I knew this time I was going to pick out something with a little more pizzaz, a little more oomph, and a little more sass. This pair is called “Agenda,” and they were exactly what I had in mind. I love all the different colors, this makes this pair very versatile. Let’s see if I can get all the colors mentioned. I see shades of orange, yellow, pink, salmon, green, white, and I think brown. Just imagine the possibilities. I have already worn this pair three times since I received them just last week. The heel in 3 1/2 inch, but they do not feel high. AND, I wore them to work one day, and they were quite comfortable. When I came home, my feet did not hurt me at all. They do have a padded insoles, so that may be the reason they are so comfortable. When I ordered this pair, I ordered my true size, and they fit perfect.A pair of new white crop pants was what I chose to wear with this look. I like the white, but the pants are too big. I probably will not wear them again. They are by Jones New York, and I don’t know if I didn’t try them on, but they do not fit. They are my normal size, maybe some of you know if they run big. I wish I had worn one of my other white pants, my butt looked saggy all day long. I am glad I had on so much color that everyone’s eye was not on my rear.

You caught me, I was admiring my shoes again. You will not be disappointed if you decide to purchase these. The ruffle short scarf is one that I bought last year. I think it was a Ralph Lauren, but I always tear the tags off of my scarves (I hate those tags to show) so I can’t say for sure.
Printed Scarf: Similar | Similar | SimilarThe pink https://api.shopstyle.com/action/apiVisitRetailer?id=533045039&pid=uid2761-32973931-86t-shirt I have on is by Ralph Lauren. I bought several of these shirts one day at TJ Maxx. I like that they have a v-neck, a small sleeve, and they fit close to the body. A shirt that fits close to the body, without being too tight, makes you look thinner. They also are easier to wear with a cardigan or sweater. I am going to leave you with just one more shot of these pumps. Head on over to Nina Shoes, and pick out two or three pair. Use the code 50isnotold at the checkout to receive a 20% discount. If your husband asks what you are doing, tell him you are taking a 101 college class that requires you to pick out new shoes. Hahaha!
