if you love bold, bright colors with a splash of pattern, then you are gonna love today’s post! ‘cuz summer is all about FUN, and pops of color just brighten your mood. i know, i know, neutrals can’t be beaten when it comes to versatility or that chic factor. but i’ve always thought fashion should be fun. and what’s funner (okay that’s not a word) that a bold and bright outfit?
bold and bright fashion for the summer
today, i’m partnering with Nordstrom, the retailer extraordinaire that’s my go-to for everything from makeup to skincare to clothes, and let’s not forget about their shoes. and, yes, they will be holding their epic anniversary sale this year although it’s moved from July to August. can’t wait! but today’s post is all about a Nordstrom made brand Halogen that i’ve been a big fan of for years. it’s a brand that’s affordable, offers lots of basics like crew neck sweaters or tank tops, and they partner with super blogger Blair Eadie from Atlantic Pacific fame several times a year. Blair is known for her preppy aesthetic, which i’ve been keen on for decades. but she has her own particular spin that’s infused with fun and femininity with a twist on classic style. let’s just say this girl won me over long ago. and i am in LOVE with the Halogen x Atlantic Pacific collection.
love, love, love the matching blouse and pants from Halogen x Atlantic Pacific. can you say adorable? but the best part about separates is that you can mix and match the pieces with other items in your closet. the blouse will look fantastic with a white skirt. and the bold patterned pants will look terrific with a casual wrap cardigan and white camisole. the mixing and matching are endless.
add a belt to this little number, and it will look like a jumpsuit without the hassle.
there were sooooo many cute items in the Halogen x Atlantic Pacific collection that i purchased several more items you’ll be seeing in future posts. but i’ve rounded up my favorites so you can see for yourself just how Blair hit this collection out of the park.
a big thank you to Nordstrom for this sponsored post. and thank you lovely readers for supporting the brands that allow me to bring you fresh ideas.
