Color Schemed Outfit Challenge

Recently, the gorgeous ~L~ from Avid Accents began using amazingly decorated rooms' color schemes to build her outfits around.  I love how she interpreted the room's feeling and put that into the outfit as well.  Her outfits were spot on and absolutely amazing! 
Last week, she posted a challenge.  Be the stylist and build an outfit, using this room as inspiration:
Now me, I am *always* up for a challenge!  So of course I was up for it.  Besides, I love the color scheme.  When I lived in Florida, I painted every room of our house bright, tropical colors.  I immediately got the beach vibe from the room.  It's classy, chic, yet understated and casual at the same time.  I saw the turquoise as more of an accent, and here's what I came up with:
First off, I need to thank my beautiful daughter, Isabella for playing photographer.
Olive silky boyfriend button up shirt, Kohls; Yellow tshirt, Target; White pants, NY and Company; Grey peep toe booties, Sam and Libby via Ross; White purse, Target; Turquoise necklace, Mother's Day gift from the kids; Turquoise earrings, Kohls; Sunnies, Forever 21.

Little man is such a photo hijacker.  Here he is sidling in...
Now he's sidled up to me....
I love my little man :)
And he loves his mama too!

So I digressed, but I think that the outfit screams classy, chic, understated, and casual all at the same time, while representing the color palette. 

I love this idea, and may do some more color scheme outfits in the future, this was so fun and I actually am starting to look at my wardrobe a bit differently....
