Bold in Maui.

Shorts: Levi’s  |  Top: f21 (different color here + here)   |  Sneakers: Converse  |  Bag: Vintage Gucci |

photos by: my sis, Ari
While in Hawaii- all you felt like wearing were your most favorite summer staples ( comfy tees, cut off shorts, pretty dresses and two piece bandeau bathing suits!) .. as I packed my summer staples, I also had to pack bold color pieces… I mean it was only appropriate! So I made sure to throw my fave bold colored pieces into my suitcase because I knew the Maui backdrop would be the perfect complement. 
As someone who has always had a tanned skin complexion, I’ve been more drawn to wearing brighter, bolder, fun colored pieces ever since I can remember! I guess it just made me feel like my skin would stand out against those pretty hues like coral, teal, and neon yellow or chartreuse. 
There’s always a color like neon yellow/chartreuse that’s my go-to color for any pick-me-up-day!
What’s your fave bold color and how do you show off that color in your wardrobe?
Excited to also share with you guys that I’ll be judging a contest hosted by Woolite on Polyvore, where you too can show off your favorite bright color item in your wardrobe!

Enter by making a set HERE
Contest ends 10/15 at 11:59pm EST
I’ll be choosing a winner; winner will win $500 visa gift card ( so jealous!)
My set is below:
Everlasting Style with Woolite & Sincerely Jules

Winner of the Polyvre x Woolite contest is:

ps. Let me know if you guys would like to see a Polyvore set/collage like the one above (once or twice a week) after my outfit photos inspired by that day’s look….similar to this post! Leave a comment with yay or nay!

    I’ve always wanted to wear bright yellow or chartreuse, but I have super pale skin so it tends to make me look really washed out.

    Great outfit, love your shorts and I love the Polyvore collage, I think it would be great if you made one every week, it kind of puts everything together to create an inspiration board..love it. By the way, I tried to use Polyvore a few months ago and just could not figure it out. How do you add pictures to the collage??

    i love the colour of that top, and it looks fantastic on you! i love bold colours but am always wary of how they look on me because i am ridiculously fair-skinned, like practically transparent. but i’ve recently just thought ‘who cares’ and have been wearing them anyway! life is too short haha xxx

    I love your outfit, it has an effortless and stylish feel. As someone with an olive complexion I too agree that bold colors look great against deep skin tones, although my summer glow is quickly fading. The ombre hair looks great on you too! Yay to the Polyvore collages, and if your in the mood for some blog surfing, check out my blog
