Editing myself

As you can see, I’m clearly back to my colorful ways. However, I had to edit myself when I got dressed because as much as I really wanted to pair my orange blazer with this look (see here for an example), I knew I’d probably end up blinding people with both my pants and my blazer. Someone should give me a pat on the back for the self-control I just exhibited. Here’s the breakdown:

Blazer: Gap (2006)
Blouse: Gap (2008)
Denim: Bisou Bisou via JC Penney
Flats: Steve Madden via TJ Maxx
Rings: H&M/LOFT

I’ve been on the hunt for the past few weeks trying to find some colored denim that wouldn’t wipe my monthly budget clean. So imagine my surprise when I found this pair (and the fushia pair I mentioned in yesterday’s post) at JC Penney, which has been doing some major price cuts lately. Needless to say, I got both pairs for less than $35, and I can’t wait to start experimenting even more with color as the weather begins to feel more spring-like.
