A Fresh Coat of Color

It was surprisingly chilly the other morning -- lows 60s in mid-August?! So I donned a lightweight jacket for my morning commute to work. If I had taken photos in the late afternoon, the jacket would've been nowhere in sight. As is, today's outfit is a preview of what's to come this fall.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

  1. That's an adorable outfit. Just found you recently. I love that you shop at reasonable places. :)

    1. Welcome, Stacey! Have to amend your statement... mostly reasonable places ;) I can't lie that I have a weakness for bags and shoes at higher-end price points.

  2. I love the Rockstuds and the color combo. Seems so early to say Fall is around the corner, but the weather doesn't lie lol :)

    1. Neither do stores already rolling out their fall merchandise! I do hope the summer weather stays with us awhile longer though :)

  3. love the pop of color with the white pants and those heels -- oh my so fab! xo


  4. Love the jacket and overall styling! And your hair looks gorgeous in the last photo :)

  5. I generally don't like fuchsia but you manage to make it look so glamorous and sophisticated in this outfit! I think I might need to change my opinion on the color :)

    1. Haha, the bright pink color is a bit...juvenile, right? I went to a birthday dinner where the dress code was pink and I felt this tee was the easiest to "dress up." If not for the dinner, I don't know if I would've thought to come up with this outfit!

  6. love the color combination. That shoes is TDF !


  7. I really like how you wear neon and it doesn't look "young" or "wild" but chic and professional.
