inspiration -- tangerine.

COVETING: Clare Vivier Neon Stripe Flat Clutch in Brown/Pink (also in Brown/Yellow)www.shopbop.com; $155I have a bit of an obsession with oversized clutches, and this one is right on point for summer.  It would easily hold everything that I need in a day but is a fun alternative to the oversized shoulder bags that I tend to tote around.  The neon stripe and zipper add such a fun punch of color, but the brown base means that this charming bag would go with every summertime look in my closet.

Speaking of summer brights, I always find myself drawn to fruit-colored hues in the summertime.  They're just so vibrant and feel seasonally appropriate despite what the weather may be doing -- from heat waves to thunderstorms, there's something about bold colors that just feels right at this time of year.  Tangerine is a particular favorite of mine.  It's unexpected and just so flattering on everyone.  From pretty nail shades to bright denim cutoffs, there's a way to incorporate this hue into even the most mundane of my summer looks.

inspiration -- tangerine.

I love this color! I didn't own much of tangerine in my closet before this year, but recently got a maxi skirt, sandals and a blouse in this color! Hope you are having a wonderful day!

What fun summer looks. I wish I had coordinating headphones with some for my netbook. I saw all these wild patterns at BEST BUY yesterday. That would definitely be my guilty pleasure at the moment.

I am on the lookout for the perfect tangerine shorts and nailpolish and I think you may have picked my top favs! Love the clutch, too, I think you could do an I-Spy-DIY project to make your own!
