Different Bottoms, Same Color

Top: Old Navy (shop similar: one, two three)  |  Jeans: Old Navy (similar under $50: one, two)  |  Necklace: Nordstrom  |  Sandals: Target (shop)  |  Tote: ebags.com (shop)

Green and white again--a combo I recently did.  One great way to build more outfits is to have different types of bottoms all in the same color.  I have a white skirt, white shorts, and white jeans, and now I can wear this same top with all of those pieces in the spring/summer, summer, and fall/winter, respectively.  Because I know the combo works, I don't have to give much more thought about the combination!  (But then again, many things work with white, haha.)  I might add a colorful scarf and boots to this look for fall, too.  

Do you buy different types of bottoms in the same color?

  3. I do buy different bottoms in the same color. I have a great red skirt and red cropped pant. Wishing i bought some red shorts, but there's always next summer. Great outfit.

  5. No, but that's a great idea. I don't have many bottoms and I should work on that.

  6. Really good idea. Sometimes I shy away from things because I may have them in the same color- but that makes a lot of sense!

  8. I do buy different types of bottoms in the same color, especially if it is a nuetral for me. For example I have a navy skirt, navy slacks and navy capri pants. I can also see buying pants and a skirt of the same color, especially if it is a favorite because the different shapes of the pieces give a different look.

  11. Very cute necklace! I very frequently buy the same color articles. I even go so far as to duplicates of the same item.

  12. Yes I am so guilty of it! If I really like something, I sometimes buy in multiple colors too. Such a bad habit!


    Every time I see that necklace - I want to hunt it down and find one for myself...I love it!
