Orange you glad I wore this sweater?

sweater: Joe Fresh
denim jacket & rockstar skinny cords: Old Navy
boots: Payless
purse: Claire's

"You look good mama! Even if your sweater is orange..." - the hubs
Gee, thanks? I guess?

Orange happens to be one of my fave colors... and what better way to start off the new season, right!?

On Monday, I wore a really cute blouse and froze my tush off at work all day!  I didn't want to make the same mistake twice, and I'd been dying to wear my new orange sweater, so I get all dolled up and cozy in my cords & tall boots... and the day got soooooo warm!  I was literally ROASTING at my desk.

Figures.
That sort of thing always happens to me!  I wish the weather would just stay warm OR cold. Just pick one already, Mother Nature!

  6. Cute!

    I hate not knowing how to dress, so you end up being either too hot or too cold or having too many things to carry around with you.

  7. Looks great on you! Our weather here in NY has been cool in the morning and at night and warm during the day, so I have been trying to layer. That way it's easy to take something off.

    Love the orange!

  9. Orange is one of my favorite colors too. I used to be known for my orange pants, yes, pants. I loved those things. I can't wait to start wearing fall inspired clothes. its still much to warm for that here, soon though.

  11. Just the opposite here in this house - my husband LOVES orange - me, not so much. We compromised and went with peach as the bridesmaid dress color at our wedding - he would have been delighted with full on bright orange. However, I do really like the bag in the photos!

  13. husbands understand nothing. When I bought new pants, mine said 'they look nice, but silly. Because they are orange.'
    What do they know ;)

  17. That always happens to me, too! If I'm going somewhere and plan on it being cold, I end up being too warm. And vice versa.

    Orange is not one of my favorite colors (just looks odd on me), but you are rocking it. :)

  19. You look really great in this outfit. Shame on the hubs for the orange comment. My husband's favorite color happens to be orange, so he always votes for orange attire. I love the way you styled it with the boots and jacket. You are way more stylish than even my most determined efforts will ever get me.

  20. You are so freaking adorable and I'm obsessed with your hair. God, I wish I could pull off short hair. Cute outfit!

  21. My husband does me the same thing. I just tell him he would understand if he had an eye for style. I love your orange sweater! I found your blog at The Pleated Poppy What I Wore Wednesday link up. I have found many inspirations on your blog. I am now following you and can’t wait to see what’s next.
