My cousin and I love rustic vibes and deep colors. For this look, we tried to show how you don’t always have to wear a bright pink or neon yellow shirt on a hot summer day, instead be original and show off muted colors in jewel tones.
For these two looks, we modeled two very different outfits that coordinated without being matchy-matchy. They each are beautiful, and each describe our personalities. One, more casual and one, more dressy. So, whether you are a more casual kind of girl, or a dressy girly, you should at least like one of our muted looks 😉
Our Muted Looks:
As you can probably tell, my cousin is the more casual one. She paired high waisted denim shorts with a crisp white tank. Over that, she wore an army green button up shirt. She left it open and rolled up the sleeves to give a more relaxed look, and because it’s summer! She finished the outfit with black vans. And because every girl understand the importance of “hat days” she wore a denim colored hat. The hat added a touch of color with the word “Aloha” embroidered in summer brights.
Now for me… Yes, I am definitely the more dressy one. Ever since we were little, I would love playing dress up and she hated it! I guess you really never change. Anyway, on to my outfit!
I paired a high waisted denim skirt with an amethyst crop top. I kept it simple with white vans for the shoes. Finally, I added a rustic wooden cross necklace.
We kept our hair simple with a messy bun and a hat. Our makeup was pretty natural looking, but we added a bold wing to contrast to our relaxed looks.
Hopefully you can see how easy it is to dress-up or dress down an outfit to best fit your personality. Jewel tones like sapphire, amethyst, and muted emerald brought our two looks together, and still gave us a great summer glow.
I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
