Modern Day Rainbow Brite

Tank: Francesca’s | Shorts: Urban Outfitters {similar} | Shoes: Old Navy {similar} | Necklace c/o Conversation Pieces | Bracelets c/o Elladolce | Watch: Target {similar}

I might be showing my age here with the title of this post, but we’re going back, WAY back, to the 1980s.  Does anyone else remember the show Rainbow Brite?  It was one of those Saturday morning cartoons that I grew up watching and loving.  Basically, Wisp and the ColorKids are in charge of all the colors in Rainbowland.  They are taken to a Colorless World and must restore color back on Earth… or something like that.  Because seriously, without color, the world would be pretty boring, wouldn’t it?

In this outfit, I’ve got every color of the rainbow or at least some shade of ROYGBIV in some fashion or another.  I used the tank as a starting point and pulled out similar colors to use in my shorts, shoes and accessories.  I’m a modern day Rainbow Brite ready to share my love for color with the world.

Do you have a go-to rainbow colored outfit?  🙂

    What a playful top! Not Rainbow 80s at all ;). And cute shorts! Very flattering! I don’t play around with rainbow prints too much :). And did your hubby have to climb a tree for that overhead shot? What a trooper!

    My go to rainbow outfit would have to be this one tank top that I own that I wear on days that I need a mood lifter. 🙂 I love your outfit, Sandy!

    I am in such a rainbow mood lately! And I’ve been seeing rainbows like crazy. Almost every single day. I feel like I’m in Hawaii rather than NY and I’m not complaining about that 🙂

    Love this outfit. The shirt is perfect and how adorable are those shorts!?! My go to rainbow outfit has been my new rainbow bikini. I’m obsessed with it!

    I have a rainbow coloured romper from Paul Frank. It’s actually a kids XL romper. I love the colours but when I wear it, I look like I’m 12. I use to wear it on the beach as a cover up but now I just wear it around the house.

    I love the shorts Sandy! And Yes I remember rainbow brite, I was her for halloween one year. My mom made the costume and told me it was the most difficult costume to make, she went all out and stuffed the edges to create the futuristic rainbow bright look!

    BTW….try selling your items on ebay! if it is new with tags may as well try to get sthg for them.

  25. June 12, 2012 / 12:01 am
