summer style with LuLuS.com: primary colors

good morning!
i hope you guys all had a wonderful mother's day weekend!
i'm so excited to announce today that i'll be doing a three-part series throughout this week with the awesome company, LULU*S! they offer amazing clothes for great prices! be sure to check them out.

for part 1, i went with a "primary colors" theme - summerfied! primary colors put together are pleasing to the eye, but how can we avoid looking like a big blob of "fisher-price" toys??
1. use different hues of the primary colors.
as you can see here, i didn't combine the "typical" primary colors together. rather, i went for a bright yellow, an aqua, and a dash of coral. this still keeps the outfit fun and interesting, but compatible together!
2. don't overload all the colors.
in my outfit, rather than having a third of it blue, a third of it yellow, and a third of it red, i wore a majority yellow, some of it blue, then just an accent of red! this way, the outfit isn't overpowered by the three colors; rather, it creates a fun medley of primary colors in one outfit! :)
3. use fun textures and patterns
As you can see in this outfit, there are stripes and lace rather than just solid colors together! i feel that adding the textures and patterns keep the outfit from being boring!
anyways, just have fun with it! primary colors CAN be fun and trendy, if you do it the right way! don't be scared to put the three colors together!
 dress (worn as a top): c/o lulu's
necklace: wet seal (similar, similar)
skirt: c/o lulu's (sold out, mint option, yellow pants option)
wedges: h&m tokyo (option)
