I thought I would switch things up today with a “Dream Closet” outfit I created on Polyvore.

I thought I would switch things up today with an Olympic inspired Polyvore set.
The Americans have really been strutting their stuff in the aquatic events at the 2012 Olympics. If I had the fortune of being able to attend the Olympics I would definitely wear something similar to this to the swimming and diving events.
The red, white and blue are clearly all there. The nautical stripes add a fun flare to the outfit. I live in Bermuda shorts during the summer. They are so comfortable and they’re nice and long so I don’t constantly feel like I need to pull them down to cover my legs.
Have you been watching they Olympics? Which events are your favorites? Which country are you cheering for?
Almost to the weekend! 🙂

Happy Monday readers! I thought I’d switch things up today with another Polyvore creation. (If you haven’t checked out yesterday’s post I’ve got 3 of my own outfits up!)
I threw this outfit together starting with the coral top. The color caught my eye and I love anything that is loose and flowy. I think outfits are much more flattering if they hang loosely on the body. For the bottoms I chose skinny jeans. I am totally hooked on my skinny jeans. In the summer they go perfectly with my TOMS or with my boots in the fall. The Michael Kors bag is my idea of handbag perfection. The simple design and beautiful tan color would go with so many outfits. The earrings play off of the color of the shirt along with the dark copper nail polish. The sandals and bracelet dress the outfit up to make it look a little less casual.
I hope you all are having a great start to the week! Enjoy the sunshine! Mindy

Summer is my favorite time to break out the bright colors. Everything is in bloom, the sun is shining, and we should be shining too!
I adore the detail on these red shorts. The scalloped edge is unique and adds interest. Nautical stripes are one of my favorite current trends, simple and chic. When I accessorized this I wanted the focus to stay on the bright reds. I chose the browns to add contrast as well. The canvas bag gives a textural contrast as well. When I’m wearing a casual outfit I prefer to keep my earrings simple. I have silver studs like these. They’re large enough to be seen but they don’t steal the show.
I love outfits like these for an afternoon shopping with the girls or taking a stroll along the beach. The look has a relaxed feel but I think it still looks quite pulled together.
Do you break out the bright colors during summer time? Do you prefer to stick to neutrals and subdued tones?

Something you will see me do often on Live Free and Fashionable is share one of my polyvore creations. When I am on polyvore I like to start off with an item I love, usually a shirt or a dress and design an outfit around it.
With my Fabulous Floral set I started with the Dolce and Gabbana floral tank. I was drawn to the tank top by the vibrant colors and soft ethereal fabric. The top definitely falls into the “Only in my Dreams” category due to the price, but let me tell you, if money were no object it would be in my closet!!
I wanted a summery look so I decided to pair it with the khaki shorts (though it would really go with any kind of bottoms). Now, I am incredibly picky when it comes to shoes. It took me quite a while to select the Emanuela Caruso sandals. I like them because they add a new texture to the outfit. The stones and crystals are chic.
The choice of a bag color was easy. I knew I wanted to draw from one of the colors in the D&G tank. I chose the bright red satchel because the color paired perfectly with the tank top, however the design was simple. Adding texture in the bag would have been overboard.
Lastly, I needed to accessorize. I threw in the hat as both a fashionable and practical point. I picture myself in this outfit strolling along the beach in the summer. The wide brimmed hat gives that cute look while keeping the wearer cool. The jewelry adds a little pop of sophistication with the earrings and glittery bangles.
Overall I feel this outfit gives a look of sophistication with a pop of cheeriness!
What do you wear for a stroll on the beach? Do you have any items similar to these in your closet? How would you pair them?
