Contrast Colors and Tri-Color Purses

I've been forcing myself to opt for printed and/or colorful tops (which, remember, were on my wishlist) in lieu of my go-to white tees and tanks that go with anything... 
F21 skirt - FC ($7.50)
Purple tee - thrifted ($3)
Soho Lab wedges - FC ($10)
American Eagle 3x wrap belt - FC ($5)
Michael Kors purse - FC ($35)
F21 sunglasses, Lucky Brand necklace

So instead of cream (which you've seen me wear with this skirt before here) I pulled out a purple (duh) shade from within the print of the skirt.  I knew I wanted to carry my new tri-color bag so threw this orange necklace on to tie the look together.  I was pleasantly surprised by how great purple and orange look together!

Again, I look to my trusty color wheel for color-coordination inspiration.  Who knew contrast colors could be so much fun?!? (and not to mention, look great together)


Oh, I also want to point out this fabulous new Michael Kors tri-color bag I got recently.  First of all, I adore these colors!  And second, tri-color bags were on the resort collection trend list according to style.com.  I think I will be able to wear this so many ways and it is the perfect color combination for Fall!

P.S. Sorry about the bombardment of photos but I just loved every single picture my new favorite photographer (Elexa, I hope you're reading this) took!  She did a great job with angles, don't you think?


What are some unique color combinations you've come up with?  Which colors do you love to wear together?  And what do you think of "tri-color" purses?  Feel free to link in the comments - I love the inspiration!

I love this look! especially those wedges and that great bag! I have to force myself to try new colors too, I tend to get really into one color or color combo and wear it to death, but it's always good to mix things up!

I think the purple top looks great with the skirt! Thanks for linking up! By the way, what does "FC" mean?

I love the purples of your shirt and the skirt! One color combination I use a lot is electric blue and a green color that pops! I'm also attracted to electric blue and turquoise, and purple, together! =P I'm not much of a color theory person though! And, your purse is very cute and versatile. Looks like you can fit a lot of stuff in there!

I am loving bright colors and I say wear them while we can. Before we know it we will be falling into the fall tones and longing for the bright summer colors again. I REALLY love that skirt.
