Happy Tuesday to You!  Today, I 'm posting some old photos I took a few months back when I did a day of shooting with this awesome 60's mod makeup and hair from Amy Velasquez at one of my local salons in Long Beach, CA.  

It's summertime and the sun is shining, the waves are crashing, and it's time to throw on some bright tangerine, yellow, and red hues.  However, you can't stand the thought of getting out of your black, navy, and gray outfits.  If you'd rather stay in the dark this summer, this is for you. 

For a breath of fresh air try a black midi or sundress with some white accessories. I'm constantly on the lookout for white accessories like big bold beaded necklaces, filigree earrings, belts, scarves, bracelets, handbags, and heels. If you'd rather conceal than reveal,  a little pop of white accessories to a black, brown, burgundy, or navy outfit will surely make wearing darker colors this summer transition with ease.  Also, If it still looks too disconnected, add a neutral to the mix like tan/black/white or gray/black/white or navy/tan/white (my favorite).

You may also consider accessories with embellishments like pom poms, white beads or sequins, fringe, a print, or eyelet textured materials to add more interest to a dark outfit.

Hope you try this out this summer:)

Hugs,

Joanna

  5. So beautiful Joanna! I agree with Lauren too, that first photo is amazing. Love the background! Black and white stands out perfectly in summer I think. Loving the throwback to the 60s too.

  10. Assalamualaikum Salam sejahtera untuk kita semua, Sengaja ingin menulis
    sedikit kesaksian untuk berbagi, barangkali ada teman-teman yang sedang
    kesulitan masalah keuangan, Awal mula saya mengamalkan Pesugihan Tanpa
    Tumbal karena usaha saya bangkrut dan saya menanggung hutang sebesar
    1M saya sters hampir bunuh diri tidak tau harus bagaimana agar bisa
    melunasi hutang saya, saya coba buka-buka internet dan saya bertemu
    dengan KYAI SOLEH PATI, awalnya saya ragu dan tidak percaya tapi selama 3 hari
    saya berpikir, saya akhirnya bergabung dan menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI
    kata Pak.kyai pesugihan yang cocok untuk saya adalah pesugihan
    penarikan uang gaib 4Milyar dengan tumbal hewan, Semua petunjuk saya ikuti
    dan hanya 1 hari Astagfirullahallazim, Alhamdulilah akhirnya 4M yang saya
    minta benar benar ada di tangan saya semua hutang saya lunas dan sisanya
    buat modal usaha. sekarang rumah sudah punya dan mobil pun sudah ada.
    Maka dari itu, setiap kali ada teman saya yang mengeluhkan nasibnya, saya
    sering menyarankan untuk menghubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI Di Tlp 0852-2589-0869
    Atau Kunjungi Situs KYAI www.pesugihan-uang-ghaib.com agar di
    berikan arahan. Supaya tidak langsung datang ke jawa timur, saya sendiri dulu
    hanya berkonsultasi jarak jauh. Alhamdulillah, hasilnya sangat baik, jika ingin
    seperti saya coba hubungi KYAI SOLEH PATI pasti akan di bantu Oleh Beliau
