PFC #17: Candy Colorized

It's time for PFC #17!  I've always enjoyed participating in these challenges and I'm so excited about hosting this one.  I can't wait to see everyone's colorful posts!  :)

The Challenge: Candy Colorized
Take a bowl full of colorful candies (M&Ms, Jolly Ranchers, jelly beans, etc.), close your eyes, and draw 2-3 pieces.  Now use those colors (+ a neutral of your choosing) to form the basis for your ensemble.

**Extra brownie points if you post more than 1 colorful ensemble or if you add a DIY element (because I love DIYs so much!) :D**

For this challenge, I used some leftover jelly beans and drew green, purple, and orange.  I wracked my brain on how to combine them as solids, but simply wasn't able to put something together that looked good.  Prints made life much easier.
Green Top + Orange / Purple / Green / White / Fuchsia Skirt + Purple Sandals + Green Ring
Banana Republic Top
J. Crew Number 2 Pencil Skirt, Garden Floral (buy here)
Frye Sandals
Amrita Singh Shelter Island Ring (buy here)
Michael Kors Tortoiseshell Watch
Banana Republic Bracelet

Other options I played with:
Lavender Striped Top + Peachy Coral Necklace + Mint Jeans + Purple Sandals
LOFT Striped Dress (worn as top)
LOFT Modern Straight Leg Jeans
Frye Sandals
Gifting Grace Necklace

A 2-color pairing was much easier:
 
Orange Print Top + Peachy Coral Necklace + Green Maxi Dress + Green Bracelet & Ring
Banana Republic Button Down
Old Navy Maxi Dress
Gifting Grace Necklace
Lands' End Canvas Double Wrap Leather Bracelet (buy here)
H&M Ring

Be sure to check out each and every one of these lovely participants.  They are (in order of sign-up):

Please let me know if I accidentally left you off the list or if there's something wrong with your link!

How do you mix your colors?

  37. I like all 3 outfits you did here. And of course.. that maxi dress.. how can I not gravitate towards that. I actually want to thank you for this challenge because I wouldn't have busted out my pink blazer which I only used very little since purchased early last year.

    ReplyDelete
  38. This is incredible!! What a way to randomly choose colors - from a bowl of jellybeans. What really surprised - in a very nice way was the green dress with the coral print top. I never EVER thought you could do that but the contrast is truly stunning.

  39. Wow you were very inspired! I loved it! thanks for hosting a great challenge!

  40. Love both the saturated and muted/pastel looks. And great fun challenge! LOVE that last necklace!!!!

  41. Thanks so much for hosting SPG!! Love your outfits, and you look great in the pale green jeans! I used a print but I wasn't sure if that was considered cheating haha, but I guess not since you (and many others) did too! I love the Gifting Grace necklace can you make me one..lol!
