Fashion Over Fifty: Pulling Out a Secondary Color

Hello!  It was a beautiful day here in Wisconsin so I could wear a sleeveless shirt today.  My shirt (similar) and skirt (similar) were purchased last year at Target, so I was happy that the colors are still trending  this season and I could get more use out of them.  The shirt is made of a very comfy knit and has a ruffled neckline.  Because of the busy print of the shirt, I paired it with a solid color coral pencil skirt.  I didn't want to look too 'coraly' so I pulled out a secondary color from the shirt (sea foam green) by wearing that color in my shoes and jewelry.  I balanced all the bold colors out by carrying a white purse and wearing a white jacket in case it got chilly.  

 Here is a close up of the jewelry.  I know the shades of green don't exactly match each other, but my wrist isn't up close to my neckline too often in real life. LOL!  I just did that pose to get them both in one picture.  The jewelry was purchased from a Forever 21 discount jewelry store at the Mall of America.  I really love the bold jade color combined with the triangular shape of the stone and mix of pearls and gold in the bracelet.  So lovely.   And I felt that simple, solid colors beads of a coordinating color were all that was necessary with the already busy shirt and neckline.  I love earrings, but I don't wear them too often because I usually wear my hair down and then you can't see the earrings anyway.
 And here is the white jacket (similar) that I took with me today in case I got cold.  I bought it at Express last year.  I think the only thing new about this outfit are my shoes (which are from Express) and my Lulu purse (similar) from J.C. Penny.
Have a great day! Amy
