WEAR IT // Ice Cream Inspiration

Monday, July 23, 2012

Did you know that July is national ice cream month?? (So, obviously July is my new favorite.)

To celebrate, this entire week of Hello Lately posts will be devoted to my beloved frozen obsession: ice cream. And, it all starts with today's fashion post.

When I think of ice cream, I think of summer... and bright colors... and warm breezes... and lots of yellow (probably because the cones are yellow?) So, when I picked the clothes for this shoot, I tried to find clothes that evoked the same emotions.

I've mentioned this before, but I love mixing patterns. Here, the yellow stripes on the shirt match the yellow in the skirt, so they tie together nicely. Then, the pink in the necklaces pulls the eye up from the skirt towards my face. I wore minimal accessories so they wouldn't detract from the statement of the necklace and the pattern in the skirt.

Yum. Now I want some ice cream... Good thing we have the good stuff in our freezer.

Stay tuned! Later this week, I'll teach you how to make the garland above... and (hopefully) how to make ice cream without an ice cream maker... and what my favorite LA ice cream shops are (frozen yogurt was so last year.)

But before you go, make sure you enter the Right Soap giveaway (here)! Today's the last day!

Oh - and if you'd like to see the other "thrifted" posts, you can find them here, here & here
