Style: Bold Colors

Balancing Color.

Good evening, friends! Can you believe that Friday is here already? I'm looking forward to sushi tonight, as always, and a lovely weekend ahead —and you? As for this evening's inspiration, it's all about being on the bold side. We've seen bold colors on the rise for some time now, showing up in signature clutches, artistic shoes, skirts, jackets and such, in vivid shades of orange, blue, red, magenta, and more. Balanced by more neutral blacks, camel and bits of grey or white, the look is rather strong. I personally plan on incorporating some fearless color into my wardrobe through Spring pants and nail polish perhaps. Is there a bright item or two on your Spring/Summer wishlist?

  1. what a fabulous post!! Love how you where able to show the trend mixing makeup and fashion..!! you are soooo talented!!! have a fabulous weekend!!!

  2. With a face like that, she would look beautiful with any makeup, I actually thought that the look was very playful, and we need playful at times. I am going to have fun and do this tomorrow. I hope I don't scare my little doggie, haha.
    I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Great work Sarah,
    The images of this post have a very strong aesthetic effectc and are very different have could combine them in a brilliant way.

    I hope that you have big plans for the weekend and that you spend a few happy and rested days,



  4. How creatively you've combined make-up with clothing trends, Sarah! I definitely have some bold colour items on my wishlist (a beautiful striped tee has already made way in my wardrobe and I've made great use of it several times so far). Hope you have a fabulous weekend! :) Ada

  5. it's so good to see these chlothes "in action" not just in editorials... and they look cool!

    i love the make-up pics, too.

    have a great sunday, dear Sarah!

  6. Oooh, i love these bold colors! Love how fashion is so fun and individualistic now. You can almost get away with anything, really.

    Hope you're having a great weekend!

  7. Well....I could never live without some white/camel/black/cipria basics...but I absolutely adore colors!! Every season, every time of the day!

  8. Fabulous images! Those shoes are gorgeous! Have a lovely day, Kellie xx

  9. Fingerrings! I have a timeless faible for crazy plexiglas pop color rings - preferrably the translucent kind. So coincidentally, this will be my fashionable color accent :-) Thanks so much for stopping by on my blog Sarah, appreciate it! Always love your posts - thanks for keeping us in the loop with your gorgeous finds! PS you may also like the post I just published on (I also blog for them) - it also works with your style inspiration above. Greetings!

  10. The orange hat! With my intital on it!!! And the ring too!

    Hope all is well with you my dear friend. I am leaving for Stockholm on the 17th. Will be gone for 2 weeks. Can I get you anything?

    The photo shoot is on for the 17th.... Yikes... Wish you lived closer so you could help me with some styling...

    Love to you,


  11. Hi Sarah! What a fabulous post! I am all about brights lately and have purchased quite a few things. Pinks, reds, orange, green, blue, yellow. The brighter and punchier the better. Just makes me more excited for summer :)

    Hope you had a lovely weekend! xoxo

  12. Love that last outfit in black with the flash of a gold belt.

    Absolutely loving the clothes on the runways and streets at the moment ~ bold colour is always a good thing in my book, but generally so hard to find good examples of it that are stylish and elegant as well. The current trend is all of those things. Gorgeous post.

  13. hi sarah! this post is too beautiful. i'm really loving bright, fresh make-up lately, especially when on the cheeks.

    sushi for dinner sounds perfect (perhaps the same for me tomorrow?). i hope you had a wonderfully warm weekend, xoxo.

  14. Love every single spectacular colour and tone in these images!

    Oh and I want that super thing ring... it's even thinner than my wedding band, which I thought was pretty thin to begin with!

    Thanks for your comments.
    You made me smile!

  15. SO many things to love here, and yes, I've got too many bold bright things on my wish list. First of all, I am crazy for the bright blue eyeshadow in your post, and that I've seen around. Cobalt is my favorite color, so I am fiending for some cobalt shoes, and cobalt jeans. I'd also love a colorful bold scarf to brighten any neutral outfit.

  16. wonderful selections darling. Hope you're well!

  17. I love bold blushes! So pretty :)
