A summer wedding in technicolor!

I have been OBSESSED this summer with the combination of Hot Pink and Orange, so when I went to polyvore I found myself wandering into those color schemes.

Not that it isn’t appropriate, of course.  The colors are bright, happy and unabashedly summery.  This outfit is one I would wear to a summer wedding, either day or evening.

The shoes are by Aetrex and have strong arch support.  I have them in black and consider them the type of heels that you could dance the night away in and still walk the next day.

The bracelet is a simple silver heart from Tiffany’s that I’ve had for years.  The shape and design are classic and not overdone.

The bag is a small clutch from Melie Bianco.  I’ve become a total Melie fan-girl; the styles are fun, bright and innovative, the materials are all vegan, and the price point is usually around $100.  This is far preferable to my other favorite, Kate Spade, where the price points are 3-4x that much.

The item I don’t have is the dress, but my obsession with the colors made it an obvious winner.  The shape is terrific (although I might want a wrap to wear with it for evenings), although I almost wish it were from eShakti so I could get cap sleeves on it.

Red and Purple

I was cruising around the ASOS site and stumbled on this gorgeous red fit-and-flare jacket.  Of course, I don’t NEED a wool coat here in Arizona, so there is no real sense in buying it.  Of course, that is what Polyvore is for!

Just for the record, I am head over heels in LOVE with that purse, but since I won’t usually spend $100 on a bag I can’t imagine spending over $1000.  However the color combination is inspiring me.  And I need to find booties like those!

At the request of an artist friend, I spent Sunday helping at her booth at a local women’s expo.  By the time I got home I was exhausted and my feet were killing me, so you get a Polyvore of what I wore rather than a picture.

Jeans: Gloria Vanderbilt Snakeskin Straight Leg Jeans from Kohls, $36.99  I am currently hoping these shrink a little, since the 22 was a bit too small but the 24s i bought were just a smidge too loose.

Top: Lace Batwing Top, $45.00 This served as a nice neutral so that my friends Necklace stood out against the shirt.

Shoes: Earthies Veria Too Bright Red Suade Sandals $149.00 – Super support, but there is no way your feet don’t hurt after all that standing on concrete.

Bag: Colorblock Tote, $32
