bright + cozy.

While the east coast got a hefty helping of snow this past weekend (slightly jealous), I’m still figuring out what to do with our very indecisive weather.  Just when I think it’s about to cool down, the temp spikes right back up.  So to adapt, I paired a thick and cozy sweater with some bright yellow shorts.  Partly chilly, mostly sunny.  Gotta love Arizona.

power colors.

I don’t remember how it came to be, but my high school best friend and I once declared turquoise and purple to be our power colors and somehow it just stuck.  At debate competitions (nerd alert) she wore a turquoise blouse with turquoise pumps and I wore a similar purple ensemble.  We thought we were pretty badass and to this day, this color combo still brings a smile to my face.  We were definitely onto something because this jeweled-toned pairing is boldly perfect no matter the season.

fall remix.

Remember this skirt?  Even though I purchased it back in March (and wore it for my first post ever!), I’ve racked up tons of mileage out of it this floral number.  Thanks to all the different colors in the print, I’ve been able to constantly remix it into different looks, dressing it up and down and for both warmer and cooler weather.

To make the skirt fit for fall, I actually wore a lace navy dress underneath and layered the skirt on top.  The orange skinny belt adds a pop of color and gold hardware pulls the whole look together.
