Outfit: More Fall Colors

You’re probably tired of me professing my love of orange but I just can’t help myself. I love that it adds brightness to this outfit but still feels warm. This is one of the few printed scarfs that I have and I’m so glad I grabbed it when I saw it. And Stacy and Clinton were right. Black and brown can be worn together. I just didn’t know how to do it in the past but now, I think I’ve got it figured out. One of the many reasons starting this blog was worth it!

Details: Halogen tank from Nordstrom / Scarf from Spotted Moth (current styles) / Cardigan, black skinny jeans and obi belt from The Limited / Matisse boots from Zappos

Outfit: Aqua + Yellow

I wore this for a presentation that I gave at Chapman University. It may be a bit casual but I learned last year just how uncomfortable it was to stand in heels for over an hour. So this whole get-up started with a desire to wear these comfortable boots. Lots of layering and perhaps a little too much matching. Probably not something I’ll wear again but they can’t all be winners.

  • Cardigan from Talbots
