orange you glad I'm wearing a stripe...again...

More pattern mixing...Gail and I both can't stop mixing bright colors and patterns. It's one of the many things that make me smile throughout the day.

What about you; do you love bright, bold combinations or tend to stick to neutrals?

bring on the bright...

I am not much of a lace person unless it's a bold lace in a bold color and then I'm in love. As is the case here. Pairing it with a bright jacket and boyfriend jeans makes it me. I've said it a hundred times and I will say it again; wear what you love and love what you wear. 
You have to get dressed so you might as well dress in something that makes you feel pretty.

tee and jeans...

 ...for the weekend.
A simple outfit of jeans and a tee can be more interesting with some details, accessories and great shoes.

And speaking of great shoes; I found these Born Sandals on Piperlime for about $32 on sale and with a rewards card. They are worth the $100 they are priced at and amazingly comfortable for how high of a wedge they are. I shopped in them for two days without a problem. Also, I thought Born shoes are not supposed to be cute. So thank you to whoever is designing the cute new comfort shoes!

feeling bright & summery....

I love it that summer is here! I love doing bright colors (obviously, I have hot pink hair!) and of course I'm doing pattern mixing again! There's just something about a bright color and sandals that makes me happy!

 I've got that faraway look in my eyes....

I'm happy to be back from NYC and into my regular routine of work and family.

Thanks to Gail who did all the outfit posts last week while I was gone. She will continue to do a post at least once a week, maybe more, if we are lucky.

a week in NYC with only a carry on...

...here are my outfits from last week while working in NYC.
When traveling I pack minimally and plan my outfits strategically so I only need a carry on. The only time this does not apply is when I'm taking a road trip or plan on doing a lot of shopping. Since this trip was strictly for work, I only packed a carry on and still had room for a great jacket I purchased at Zara.

My travel outfit consisted of a striped knit tee, scarf, dark wash jeans and sandals.
Entire outfit (minus the sandals) is from bfearless, a local boutique.

Day 2 in NYC... A slouchy sweater, knit skirt and neutral wedges was an easy yet dressy outfit for an entire work day.

A lightweight sweater, my white jeans and sandals were perfect for a relaxing morning in the sun and then traveling home.
