It’s well and truly summer. Sigh. I guess that means hemlines rise and colors lighten up. SIGH. You know I have a very difficult time with these concepts.

But sometimes it’s good to go with the flow, right? Experiment a little? Maybe don’t go too crazy (as the title of this post suggests), but perhaps…just one crayon at a time? I think we can do this.

Find a slip of a dress that whispers the soft pink of the dawn before the day’s heat begins to blaze; a sheer tank top that reflects the cool, clear blue of a secret swimming spot, a weirdly patterned frock in the bold shades of children’s pool floaties or another echoing the hues of a deep red rose, a tee shirt screaming the lurid orange of the sun’s dying rays on a late July afternoon, or a dress the vibrant green of grass clippings that stick to your feet when you walk outside barefoot to get the mail, after the lawn man has cut two weeks worth of growth…

Below you will find a few suggestions in this vein; as always click each image for more information on the items used and where to purchase.

    Dang it! The pretty perfume bottle in Look 3 appears to not be findable through your Polyvore link. What is it!?I I must have it! Not because it smells good (it could smell like callous peelings marinated in sloth pee, for all I care) but because the bottle is so pretty!

      Yeah, it does seem to go to an old link that no longer exists, but in looking at the packaging, I have a hunch that it might be Lollia brand https://www.lollialife.com/

    OMG, Looks 2 and 7 are everything I want in a summer outfit. I tend to wear a lot of color (I’m into the hippie/boho look), but I’ve been wanting some edginess to looks. These (and all your how to wears) are stunning.
