Color Me Bluetiful: "Summer Sunset"

Hey Bluetiful Ones! Summer is approaching and what better way to welcome in a little heat with hot new look? Today's "Color Me Bluetiful" segment will be featuring a look that I like to call "Summer Sunset". It was inspired by a photo that I ran into on my comp, that is filled with vibrant purples, pinks, oranges, and a hint of yellow.

Pink is definitely a color that has been making great waves during the spring and this upcoming summer season, so I decided to embrace my girly side and brighten things up a bit. While it may not necessarily be a work appropriate look, it's definitely something to have a little fun with in your free time. Feel free to tell me what you all think...

Absolutely blue-tiful!!! Great blending...we must be thinkin' the same thing because my FOTD Friday is similar to this. Only not as good. I've never heard of make in Genuine Orange. Hmmm...how could that slip past me?

Love the look! Not only does it resemble the sunset photo, it makes me want to travel somewhere tropical and sip a pina coloda =)
