It's my first Petite Fashion Challenge! It's kind of nice to rummage the closet with a semi-plan in mind and it took less time than I thought! I'm loving the stylish options people are posting! Now if only I had more clothes...
This month's challenge is hosted by SewPetiteGal, with this premise:
The Challenge: Candy Colorized Take a bowl full of colorful candies (M&Ms, Jolly Ranchers, jelly beans, etc.), close your eyes, and draw 2-3 pieces. Now use those colors (+ a neutral of your choosing) to form the basis for your ensemble. **Extra brownie points if you post more than 1 colorful ensemble or if you add a DIY element (because I love DIYs so much!) :D**
I'll admit - I don't have much color in my closet and I knew what kind of candies I had laying around and let me just tell you, it wasn't looking good...
But I took a chance, drawing from my fringy pinata full of jolly ranchers, sweethearts, nerds, laffy taffy, and godstoppers. My color combinations are by type of candy so I only drew 2 colors. The one I could actually work with from my closet was the pink and green sweethearts. I don't own any of the other colors! *gasp*
Luckily, I have a lot of pink accessories and a newish green skirt so I was able to pull 2 outfits together! Bear with my candy inspired names for my looks! :)
Shirt: Nordstroms Lush | Capris: GAP | Necklace: DIY | Earrings: pearls | Sandals: Macy's Ralph Lauren
For another look, I switched out my navy pearl necklace for some gold and green accents.

ugh, cheesy smile...
Shirt: J.Crew | Skirt: Target Xhilaration | Headband: BR Outlet | Earrings: pearls | Necklace: ??? | Sandals: Macy's Ralph Lauren
Surprise! There's a third look that I stumbled upon a couple days later! I was happy to find this combo because it's comfy and great for hot weather! The softness of it reminds me of saltwater taffy :)
tank: Express | shorts: ???
While looking for the source of my pink necklace, I found a few others that could've worked well. Click images for their sources.

How would you have styled pink and green together?
