We are sisters that grew up in different decades with completely different personal styles, but we both enjoy finding a bargain and having fun with fashion. We don’t spend lots of time and money on clothing, but we like to work with what we have, be creative, and share style ideas and tips.

Think Pink (and Orange)

Big Sis: I've seen a lot of pink and orange together lately, and I love it! One of my favorite shirts in high school (a very long time ago) was a striped pink and orange v-neck, and I'm glad to see the vibrant combination is back in style. I created this outfit with my favorite shades of pink and orange, and included two of my favorite mixed patterns, stripes and floral.

Here are some fun, vibrant pink and orange combos I found while browsing around:

 Heidi Klum rocks a satiny magenta shirt with hot orange pants. 

 I like the second from the left best, but they all have potential. 

Wouldn't this flirty dress look cute with a cropped denim jacket and magenta flats?

 Love these flats. Combine them with jeans and an orange blouse? They're so bright and fun, even a neutral blouse would work. 

The tangerine cardigan looks great over a soft coral button-up. 

Here are Pantone's 2013 fall fashion inspiration colors for more fun color combo ideas. I'm thinking that Koi and Mykonos Blue would look pretty great together too. Which are your favorites?

Navy and Aqua

Last fall it was all about the contrasting colors, navy and coral, but this season the blue hues, navy and aqua are stealing the scene.

Below are some of my favorite navy and aqua outfits, items, and interior design ideas. 

 Love these navy wed leg jeans and the way that her dark green bag pulls the outfit together. 

 The aqua couch with the navy pillows are fantastic. The room pulls off a both modern and retro look. 

This is maybe the 6th photo of Zooey Deschanel I've posted on my blog. I can't help it. She's got style. 

I love ALL of these pillows and wish that they were sitting on my couch right now. 

 This cute casual bag is just one of the many adorable bags in the Blucalla Etsy shop. 

This understated chevron aqua, navy, and gray phone case would make a great accessory.

Wouldn't this throw pillow from FestiveHomeDecor on Etsy be a pretty addition to the pile of pillows above?
