Playing formal-casual-formal

This outfit is really about three colors- fuchsia pink, lavender, and coral. My {overly-simplistic} thought process while dressing was this- pink goes with purple, and orange goes with pink. So fuchsia pink top to go with lavender jeans, coral necklace and earrings to match with the top. I had to tone down all the color, so, a white blazer. But I couldn't resist adding more color with the shoes. They just went so perfectly with the clothes. Since this is a semi-formal look, I pushed the sleeves up to add a bit of casual flair and wore a cuff to smarten it up again. Me getting dressed up is like playing a game of opposites- casual top, formal jacket, casual jeans, formal cuff, push-sleeves-up for casual, formal handbag, casual necklace and formal shoes. Whew! But that's what makes it so much fun.
