Sunset Skirt

Thank goodness it’s Friday!

Isn’t this skirt really pretty? I think it looks like a sunset, and even though I’ve never been to Hawaii, this seems like it would be the perfect outfit to wear on vacation there. I originally put on some shell jewelry, but then I decided that was too island-like for not being on an island…

I wore this outfit to go see a movie with my friends downtown and then to get ice cream afterwards. I saw Me Before You. Did any of you see it? More importantly, did any of you read the book? I loved the book, but I have to stop talking about it now, and those of you who have read it or have seen the movie know why…

I bought this skirt the same time I bought the orange and navy skirt I wore in Wednesday’s post. I can’t believe it’s been four years since I got them! Or that they still fit; today’s orange skirt is getting on the shorter side. I remember buying these skirts for my trip to Puerto Rico, so at least this one was intended to be worn on an island. 😉

Complementary

Happy Hump Day!

Today I’m wearing complementary colors, something that I don’t usually do. Cobalt blue and bright orange kind of clash in my eyes, but I feel like the navy and burnt orange colors of this outfit actually work well together, especially since there is already orange and blue in the skirt.

I wore this outfit while in Iowa to explore the town and also at a family gathering. It’s great for those blistering summer days because it keeps me cool; I love wearing skirts and dresses when it’s hot and humid out.

I never thought I liked blue and orange together, but now that I think about it, I’ve been on somewhat of a blue and orange kick lately. Just check out my orange purse and navy combo here or my orange pants and turquoise jewelry from Monday’s post.

Fun and Colorful

Hello everyone!

What better way is there to start the week than with an outfit that makes you happy? This outfit is so colorful and bright, I can’t help but smile. I love this crochet tank for summer and fall, but I usually pair it with the same two bottoms over and over again. I couldn’t believe I had never thought to pair it with these bright orange pants!

I wore this outfit on a day trip to Colorado Springs. It was the perfect outfit to wear while exploring downtown and shopping. It’s super comfortable, and my new hat did a great job of keeping the sun off my face. It did not, however, keep my shoulders from getting burned! Speaking of sunburns, did anyone notice my racerback tan? It’s bad, I know.

If anyone is gluten-free and visiting Colorado Springs anytime soon, you have to stop at Coquette’s Bistro and Bakery. It is 100% gluten-free and absolutely delicious! I was overwhelmed by all of the GF options and had a hard time deciding what to get. In the end, I went with the chicken strips and a maple bacon donut for dessert. Yum!
