Happy Wednesday! Hopefully you’ve been having a pretty awesome week so far.
I wore this outfit while in Colorado for a day of driving and exploring cities. I love that it looks like a romper (like the two-piece set in this post), but doesn’t have any of the fit or functionality issues of one. This is one of my go-to summer outfits because it keeps me cool and allows me a little more movement than a dress or skirt, which I also love to wear on hot days. However, the materials of the shirt and shorts in particular are very static-prone, which is quite annoying. If anyone has any suggestions to prevent static, I’d love to hear them!
These pictures don’t have the best lighting because a summer thunderstorm was rolling in. Does anyone else love summer thunderstorms? I think they are a lot of fun to watch from a covered porch or from your window, and the smell of rain in the summer is so refreshing!

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.
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!
