And Brighter Still…

Blogger secret:  Sometimes the best outfit is the one that doesn’t require you to change your purse!


Admittedly, this outfit takes bright to a whole other level.  But since I am working hard to resist all my gorgeous dark colors and enjoy summer for a while longer, I pulled out these separates.

  • Skirt: Pyramid Collection (Fire Midi-skirt)
  • Sweater: Coldwater Creek (RIP)
  • Tank: J. Jill (Perfect Tank)
  • Sandals:  Orthaheel (older)
  • Necklace: via Little Black Bag (RIP)
  • Bracelets: Kenneth J. Lane Bangles (LBB) and Kate Spade Pardon My French Bangle, all Orange
  • Bag: Kate Spade (Kirk Park Maise, similar)


(See, I even smiled for this picture…)

In a perfect world, this skirt would have been 1) some kind of knit, 2) maxi length and 3) an elastic waist.  Unfortunately it’s a very lightweight cotton, a long midi-length on me, and has a set in waist.  You can already see the start of the wrinkles and by the time I got home it was a LOT worse.

Before I left my office to take these pictures I actually put lipstick on.  Damned if I know how it disappeared in the 15 minutes it took me to get from my office to this little nook I’ve been using for pictures.

One other thing I can clearly see in these pictures – time for a haircut.
