21 + 22: A Little Bright, a Little Summery.

Though it definitely feels like Fall now, I still have a few more Summery Outfits to show you for this challenge and then back to reality. And yes, besides today you might see Shorts once or twice more. What these Outfits have in common, are Bright, Cheerful Colors. And, I finally wore my Floral Off-the-Shoulder Blouse and the Denim Vest. I am surprised it took me so long for the Denim Vest, but truth be told when it was hot out it was too warm to layer with it and when it cooled off, I needed my Denim Jacket, instead. What do you think of the Outfits below? I love how the second Outfit came out, it is definitely my favorite.
In this first Outfit I kept it simple accessory-wise since I am mixing patterns but they work, because the blouse's pattern is bigger and the short's is smaller. Plus, they are mostly in Black+White letting the Fuchsia pop. I am wearing a Small Red Bow Barrette in my hair which matches the Red Sandals.
That Big Silk Orchid across the chest is all embroidered over it with silk. I wish you could see it better on the picture.
Fuchsia, Black+White Floral, 3/4-Sleeve, Off-the-Shoulder Silk Blouse: White House Black Market (similar, this year's version by WHBM, on sale, love this), (similar w/ green floral by WHBM, best deal, love this), (similar, gorgeous option).
Black+White, Geometric/Diamond Print, Cotton Shorts: Old Navy (similar, love these), (similar, tribal print, great deal, love these), (similar w/ crochet trim, best deal).
Skinny, Red Bow Barrette: A Random Boutique.

In this Outfit, I am wearing 3 of the 4 primary colors. I love the combination of the Hunter Green with the Blue of the Denim and the Bright Yellow. I added a pop of Pink via the Striped Espadrille Wedges. I am loving these Summer layers.
Hunter Green, Scoop-Neck, Short-Sleeve, Fitted, Soft Cotton Tee: The Limited (very similar, great deal), (similar in boat-neck, best deal, love this), (similar in V-Neck), (similar in split-neck).
Big Circle, Plastic, Yellow Stud Earrings: Fred's Jewelry (love these yellow+white flower studs, great deal).
Neon Yellow & Gold-tone Enamel Bangle Bracelet: A Local Accessories Boutique (New) (very similar yellow bangle, great deal), (similar, best deal).
Hot Pink, Multi-Colorful Stripped Wedge Espadrilles: Payless (very similar, SAVE), (similar + great deal, love these), (similar, SPLURGE).
