TANGERINE & TURQUOISE

This weekend marked the kick-off for pool parties all over California.  School is out for most kids and the weather is finally cooperating.  Hello Summer!

Sub-consciously, the colors I  keep reaching for have been tangerine & turquoise.  It just evokes sun and water.  I've been digging my closet for these hues in various forms -- even down to prisoner-orange Zara pants (do I look like I'm fleeing from the US Penitentiary?).

Purse: Palm Beach vacation souvenir
Cuff: Kendra Scott in blue chalcedony
Necklace: actually a semi-precious detachable strap
from a clutch picked up in the Philippines

Sandals: Tory Burch
Beach hat: Target
Necklace: gift from sister

I scoured my bookshelves again and committed the proverbial sin of judging a book by its cover.  Yet somehow, F. Scott Fitzgerald's Tiffany blue cover seemed apt.  Long Island summers or the French Riviera are brought to mind when I think of Fitzgerald and the Jazz age.

What colors are you reaching for these early days of summer?

  1. These photos are gorgeous - tangerine and turquoise is a perfect summery mix! And Fitzgerald is one of my all-time favorites.

    I recently invested in bright orange trousers from H&M, so I'm laughing at the prisoner reference! Love it! :)

  23. This color combination really is like sunshine and waves. The colors are beautiful together! I'm really into turquoise jewelry lately. My favorite pieces are the cuff in the first photo and the necklace in the second. Such statement pieces!
