How to work the citrusy styles that are all the rage at Blush Boutique [Fashion]


I dropped by Blush Boutique after work on Wednesday and played a rousing game of dress up with store employees Penelope and Marissa. They styled and modeled some of the hottest spring looks - and wowed me with their incredible shoe wall.

Here are my 3 tips to pulling it all together:

1.) Go bright! If you're a fashion newbie start with a statement piece like a coral bag or a cerulean leather belt. For the more seasoned shopping veteran, be sure to snag a pair of lime skinnies or a supertall wedge with neon yellow embellishments.

2.) Mix prints and patterns. The trick here to is to stick to one color family, like a deep blue for example. Pair a blue and white polka dot pencil skirt with a striped blue and white loose tee, or a red flowery dress with a red and white striped cardigan.

3.) Choose a nude shoe. When wearing a super bright outfit or mixing prints and patterns, it's important to choose a nude shoe to give the outfit balance. Right now nude wedges or tan leather gladiator sandals are the perfect fit.
