  • Polo – J Crew
  • Denim Pencil Skirt – Gap, endlessly remixed
  • Pink Tank – Gap
  • Green Flats – Banana Republic, remixed almost as much as the skirt
  • Bracelet – Faces Green Necklace


When I sported a white polo for a little golf outing a few weeks back,  reader Jessica asked how I might style a polo off the course.  Well, here you have it.   This J Crew polo is much softer than the average polo and feels more like a worn-in tee-shirt.  I love the detail of the little pocket and extra buttons.  I also love the color of this top – a pinky peachy almost coral.  I think on the color wheel, it falls closest to pink (a shade of red) thus making its compliment green.

I wore a similar outfit when we explored complimentary colors back in February. Using the same necklace as my pop of green, this time I have wrapped it around my wrist several times to create an oversized bracelet.   I loved S.’s big blocks of bright color yesterday and promise to give that approach a try at some point this week, but for now am easing into color mixing by grounding my look with a neutral base in the denim skirt.

    I adore pink and green together, but always fear looking a bit too Lily Pulitzer. LOVE how you’ve paired them here!

    Cute outfit, I really love that green necklace and it looks lovely with the pink. I always have a hard time wearing polos too, I’ve finally discovered I like how they look when I mix them in with more “edgy” clothing, like a ragged edged denim mini and converse sneakers or flip flops.
