What I Wore: Peplum and Pink

Weekends come and go so quickly. Just another Manic Monday (I’ll have that song stuck in my head the rest of the day.)

I’m starting to get a little depressed with all the “summer is almost over” discussion. The magazines are talking about the fall trends, I’m just not ready for all that yet. Feeling the pressure of having to wear all my summer clothes Right Now, before it’s too late!!

I’m being a bit dramatic this morning, but seriously I don’t want summer to end- (Insert Temper Tantrum)

I love the black and white pattern of the top against the bright pop of pink, and I’m a huge fan of the bow buckle detail on the belt. Obsession of the moment: Bows!

Hope you had a great weekend! Happy Monday!

What I Wore: Bright and White

I don’t know about you but I love white. White pants, dresses, shirts..etc You get the picture.

The problem I have is I can’t make it through a day without spilling something on myself. The day my blue pen decides to explode is the day I am wearing White- coincidence?

The planets were all aligned yesterday, No spills! My white pants are still white, it was a good day!

What I Wore: Navy Sheath

I love a good deal! I found this Cynthia Steffe dress at Marshall’s a little while back for only $30.00, retails for $145.00. Yeah Baby! Can you feel my excitement?

Marshall’s is an excellent place for dresses for all occasions. I typically buy a style I can wear to work and this sheath is not only work appropriate but could be worn to a wedding or other special occasion.

It’s a neutral color so accessorizing is easy. I love bright pops of color so today I paired it with Kelly Green for a nice contrast. Maybe next week I’ll pair it with a vibrant Pink or keep it monochromatic with Cobalt Blue (my favorite color if you haven’t guessed.)

Neutral doesn’t have to equal boring, punch it up with a pop of color to make it interesting!

Summer Style Staple: LOFT Sundress

LOFT is currently having a huge sale on their dresses, now is the time to scoop them up! I promise you you’ll wear them for years. The structure and silhouettes are perfect for work and play, well made and come in a variety of colors.

I’m 5’2 so I wear petite in dresses and skirts, they are the perfect length fall right at or right above my knee in most cases unless the cut is designed to be shorter.

This dress is light and breezy in a pretty Coral color. The V in the front and back were a little too low for the office, to remedy that I threw on a floral scarf and white cardi to keep it conservative.

Wore to Work: Teal and Yellow

It is 100 degrees this week (no joke) over here on the East Coast. I sympathize with anyone who works outdoors in this type of weather; if that’s you, stay hydrated and take breaks. Safety First!

This heat is not conducive to good hair days, what is voluminous, shiny waves in the house turns into a limp, sweaty, straight mess by the time I cross the parking lot to enter work. In an attempt to offset the flat hair I punched up my attire with a bright color combo.

The necklace, a birthday gift, was my inspiration for the color scheme. Yellow and Teal.

Wore to Work: Rainbow Sorbet

Is there such thing as wearing too much color? Found this dress on clearance for a whopping $9.99 at Burlington Coat Factory, my first thought, “There is a reason this is on clearance for 9.99, is it too Rainbow Bright?” So I put the dress down and continued to wander around the store.

If you’re not familiar, Burlington Coat Factory is similar to a TJ Maxx/Marshall’s. They carry some designer brands and have a huge coat selection- hence the name 😉

Long story short, I bought the dress (Thank you Captain obvious- I can see the pictures) I think it’s more Rainbow Sorbet than Rainbow Bright and I rocked it!

This dress turns out to be a versatile piece in my wardrobe because I already own blazers, belts, shoes and cardigans that coordinate perfectly with every color in the dress. I love when a plan comes together 😉

What I Wore: Pink and Yellow

Lunch/Study Session in the Park earlier this week, perfect setting for a quick photo op. My outfit was inspired by another Coast to Coast Central Challenge ‘Pink Lemonade.’

An unexpected color combination that I would not have tried if not for the Challenge. I loved the pairing and plan on incorporating it more into my wardrobe.

Pink is really a versatile color, my favorite combos:
Pink and Cobalt
Pink and Orange
Pink and Yellow

What unexpected color combos are your favorite?
