Falling for bright skirts

This skirt was definitely made for spring with its brights bursts of color and impressionist floral pattern. I usually pair it with a crisp white blouse and bright baubles, and I feel all special like I'm going to walk into a store on Rodeo Drive and say, "Big Mistake! Huge!", like my idol Julia Roberts. But that's easy. The real challenge, and the thing that coincidentally makes the skirt look even brighter, is when you pair it with fall's darker hues. For some reason, I had a feeling about this Army Green button down. Green compliments flowers. It's science. Black tights would have been too severe with the bright colors and gray tights would have clashed with the shoes so I went with maroon. Overall I thought the colors meshed well. Have you tried wearing any brighter colors for fall?
