Red and Teal Color Combo

Happy Monday! I am SO pumped to bring this week’s content to you! First, this outfit kicks off the revival of an old series from when I first started blogging called “Wardrobe Re-Wear.” I think it’s clear I re-wear many of the items in my closet, because in real life, you typically don’t wear an item just one time. So when it’s a Wardrobe Re-Wear week, both outfits that week will feature a key outfit styled two ways. Stop by later this week to see a second outfit idea featuring a piece from this outfit. Second, I’m working on a collaboration with Willow Pump, which is a BIG deal for breastfeeding mommas! I love when I can use my platform to bring product reviews to you of products like this.

Scallop shorts are my fav for summer! I think that they look classy but fun, and they instantly pull your outfit together. These from J. Crew Factory are on major sale right now, and come in an assortment of colors. They are very similar to the Lilly Pulitzer Buttercup shorts for a fraction of the price. I snagged the red pair since the Fourth of July is right around the corner. Also, I think these fit slightly on the small side, so I would go up a size if you’re in-between.

Red and teal is one of my favorite color combinations! I don’t know why I don’t wear it more often, because it’s stunning together. These v-neck tees from J. Crew are perfect closet staples. The teal color will also pair great with navy and white too.

Since I was color blocking here, I matched my earrings to my shorts. Then I went neutral with my bag and shoes. You can also see both my bag and shoes in my post about how to achieve effortless summer style! I know the shoes are a little bit of an investment, but I wear them almost every single day.

So, do you think I’m re-wearing my tee or shorts later this week?!

Nice to meet you!

    Pretty! We did family pictures with these colors and they turned out great. I’m guessing the scalloped shorts because it’s been so HOT!
