Pop of color

I find that I tend to stick with neutrals when it comes to clothing… I don’t know, maybe it’s “safer” to stick with duller colors. However, I love adding a pop of color to my sometimes-boring-color-pallet- outfits. It spruces it up and gives your outfit just what it needs to stand out from the neutral tones. I found these bright and fun shorts at that one store that we all spend waaayyy too much money at- you know- TARGET. The pom-poms sold me. I’m snatching up anything and everything with fringe/tassels these days.

I’m also currently loving this casual long sleeve/backless shirt from The Look book Store . If y’all haven’t heard of it- you need to check them out! They offer on-trend, affordable clothing (I’d compare them to Forever 21). This shirt is such a simple piece but sometimes it’s those simple pieces that complete an outfit… especially when pairing with eye-catching shorts such as these.

All around, this is a perfect Summer outfit!

    Hi Melissa! First of all, you are absolutely beautiful. I stumbled on your instagram tonight because I follow liketoknow.it and I noticed you’re wearing the yellow shorts I tried on yesterday at Target! Now I am regretting passing them up! Also, I follow Ashley Maxwell’s photography blog because I think she has the most beautiful photographs. So anyways, new follower here 🙂 Love the easy and effortless look to this outfit. Have a wonderful night!
