Hey Beauties,

Today I'm feeling a bit better, although I don't feel 100% my best. I haven't gotten this sick in quite a while now, so it's pretty frustrating, but I guess the change of weather is to blame. Speaking of the change of weather, I decided to create this look which fuses both summer and fall colors and pieces together, which was perfect for a day like today. Since I'm still not feeling well, I wanted to keep a little warm, so I opted for this light-weight sweatshirt, which I sometimes wear during those chilly summer nights. It has a little touch of neon green and zippers on the bottom of the sweatshirt, which I really like. Although neon colors can be worn all year long, I personally tend to wear them most during the summer months (I think they look great with a tan), and it technically still is summer, so why not extend the wear, even though I have a feeling I'll be wearing it again this fall :) 

To kind of dress the look up a bit more and create a fall-like vibe, I paired the sweatshirt with dark washed jeans, which have a slight fade in them, matching the grey in the sweatshirt perfectly. Darker denim tends to exude fall more, whereas lighter washes tend to be more appropriate for spring and summer. Plus, darker denim has more of a dressier feel to it, so I'd suggest wearing a pair on your next dress down day at work. 

To add some louder splashes of color, since the neon is so subtle in the sweatshirt, I decided to wear these neon colorblock pumps and added my orange cross-body purse into the mix, since the shoes featured a similar orange color. Lastly, I wanted to add some print and obviously cover my neck area from any chills, so I wore this beautiful paisley printed scarf. It also has touches of orange and in addition, colors that are reminiscent of fall. 

Overall, I believe this look is a nice fusion between summer and fall, creating a nice transitional look, meeting both halfway. So what do you think of the look?

Hey guys!

In the beginning of the year, I announced on my blog that orchid was the color of the year. It's a gorgeous hue of purple and I feel it's perfect for fall. I've also mentioned how orange is the new black this upcoming fall; it's a bold color that makes a bold statement and can take any plain look up a notch in an instant. When creating a look for today's post, I wanted to combine both the color of the year and the color of the season into one outfit. I wasn't sure how they'd blend, but I actually love the end result. I think the two colors compliment each other rather nicely and would make for a fantastic pairing this fall, would you agree? So take your work look up a notch by blending these two beautiful and bold colors and be anything but ordinary, simply because YOU are!
