Fashion Math: Pink + Orange

Pink alone is alright, but pink with orange? Now that makes me think of summer! I know what you’re thinking. Uh, don’t orange and pink clash? Yes! But in a good way! How else could a scoop of rainbow sherbet ice cream look so insanely delicious? (Especially right now — I’m going to Baskin-Robbins at lunch.) In this week’s fashion math, I’ll show you nine orange and pink outfits combos that are perfect for summer. Just keep your accessories basic and neutral — not counting the ice cream cone in your hand, of course.

Must Haves: 7 Paper Bag Shorts

Let’s be honest, a lot of short styles are not particularly comfortable. They dig in at the waist and crotch, or fit great at the waist but squeeze into your thighs. And once you eat lunch? Forget about it. Paper bag shorts, with their cinched waist and roomier fit, are a cute alternative to regular ol’ short-shorts. Here are seven pairs I’m jonesing for…

Must Haves: 8 Radical Rashguards

In the summer, I love to do everything outside. I would happily soak up the sun at the beach, pool or park all day long, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve become more aware of the sun’s negative effects. Even my olive skin tone can’t handle a full day under the cloudless sky and the most vulnerable areas on my shoulders and chest can’t get enough SPF. Last year, I discovered rashguards, so instead of running for cover at the first signs of a burn, I can now toss one on and sip iced tea as I lazily float around the pool.

Must Haves: 7 Spring Scarves To Tie On

A colorful, lightweight scarf is indispensable at this time of year. Every spring, I purchase one cheery scarf as my signature accessory. Instantly, sweaters, T-shirts and dresses have a whole new vibe. Plus, given how much the temps can fluctuate, scarves add a much needed extra layer for chilly mornings and sunsets. Slide one around your neck, wrap one around your head, tie one to your purse strap, or simply store one in your purse and enjoy spring. (If you need more ideas, here are 15 ways to tie a scarf for inspiration!)

Style Muse: Peonies, Peonies, Peonies!

Hey guys, I need to work from home today because my peonies are about to blossom and I want to be here to witness it and spend time with them. See ya tomorrow! — Amelia

That is an actual email I recently sent to the staff, explaining why I would be working from home that day. (Yes, I am very lucky to be able to work from home at all, let alone because I want to spend time with cut flowers. I appreciate this fact every day.) For about six wonderful weeks in May and June, peonies GIVE ME LIFE. I spend an embarrassing amount of money on them, but considering I decline invitations to go out in favor of quality time with those blooms, I think they’re worth it.

There are soooooo many varieties of peonies, that I decided to choose five of my fave pink and red varieties as inspiration for this style gallery. Was this really just an excuse for me to stare at peony pictures for the last few hours? Sure. But can you blame me?
