Summer Color Combo: Raspberry & White and Visiting Stanford

One of my favorite color combos for spring and summer is raspberry and white, and I wore my raspberry tank (I last wore it with my white Desigual coat) and white denim jacket when we visited Stanford University last weekend. I also wore my raspberry-colored Black House White Market sandals, which I love as they are comfortable, secure and more polished than flip flops. Unfortunately, BHWM doesn’t make them anymore...

Stanford’s campus is beautiful, and there is plenty of space to walk around. You can also visit the art gallery, the museum (Cantor Arts Center, which has a nice permanent collection as well as amazing temporary exhibitions on display; plus admission is free!), and Hoover Tower (there is an exhibit on the bottom level, and you’ll have a wonderful view from the top). Stanford University is a nice place to spend a pleasant afternoon.

And on a hot day the stunning, covered walkways provide shade and coolness.

  12. Such a fresh and colourful combination Andrea. Pink really suits your skin and hair colour. Am more than a bit envious of your temperatures which are soooo much warmer than ours in the UK currently!

  26. The very first thing that I was drawn to was those gorgeous sandals, so, naturally, they aren't available any longer. LOL!! It always works that way when I see something on someone I love. I was talking to a judge in the courthouse the other day, and we were admiring each other's rain coats (both of which are several years old, so neither one of us could get the other's coat now) and both of us complained about that very thing. Ha!. You look fab! Did you visit Stanford for a college visit with your son, or were you visiting just for its own beauty?

    1. I know what you mean! I am so often drawn to items that are no longer available...

      We just visited for fun. Our older son graduated from college a few years ago, and the little one has a while to go until he has to think about college. Also, my husband went to Stanford's local rival, UC Berkeley, so we are always pushing a bit for Berkeley... ;-) But in all seriousness, college admission has become so very, very competitive so we are trying to make it clear that there many awesome schools that will allow him to strive and do what he wants in life... :-)

  28. sandals that I love are hard to come by and I often find myself wishing I had bought a second pair to hold in reserve so I sympathize with you regarding the ones you're wearing. I love that they are such a bright color. thank you for posting with Up, Down, All-Around.

  30. This is a fantastic color combo and you look very chic but also perfectly casual for the day's activities. I've been to Stanford for a football game when they were playing my alma mater UCLA but never had a chance to walk around the campus. Looks like I missed out...it's beautiful.

  32. What a gorgeous campus! A great way to spend the day! And your outfit was perfect. The raspberry and white combo looks really good on you. I wear a lot of black, very little white, some grey and then throw in a pop of color. I have a few tops that are this raspberry hue, I find it flattering on me. White near my face, not so much! I have noticed that you wear color well, and a huge variation of it. My skin doesn't do well with cream, yellow or white. BTW, the sandals are so cute! Love the pop of color!

    1. Thanks, Nikki!

      It's funny that you mention that I'm wearing a lot of color. I actually make a conscious effort to wear color as I naturally gravitate toward neutrals. I look at my Instagram feed ever so often and decide whether to add more color... Also, most of my colorful clothes are quite old as I have been mainly replacing neutral foundation pieces in my closet. It's a good reminder that I do like color and that wearing it makes me happy! :-)

      The sandals are perfect, and I'm so sad that they are slowly falling apart... It'll be really hard to replace them...
