The hills are alive with color!!

I was in Geneva this past weekend and I quickly shot some pictures of my outfit. I love mixing up my colors and I thought this was a really fun color combination. Color blocking is a trend that I don’t think will go out any time soon…so go ahead, pick two colors and block away ;)

Here is what I wore:
Michael Kors crochet sweater in orangeSee similar style here.
White House/Black Market white tank top
H&M Yellow linen shorts
Hermes cognac color belt with gold buckle– This belt is definitely a splurge but click here and here for some fabulously affordable options that have a similar style.
Tally WeiJl bracelet
Mallorca pearl earrings from M and Molt
Merona sunglasses from Target: I wrote about these fabulous retro style shades here. I love their look!
H&M crossbody bag
Ralph Lauren Alexa sandal in polo tan

And lastly…the last pictures is to show you that I genuinely rely on my makeup bag (and obviously I don’t alter my images). We had to be in Geneva very early in the morning and I didn’t have time to do my makeup…so what I have on my face is exactly what I carry in my makeup bag (see post here). Having a “survival” beauty bag is always useful ;)

XOXO,
Martha
