ELECTRIC BLUE + FUCHSIA = HEAD-TURNER. Remember that list of fall colorblocking ideas? Today (9/29) was super sunny, in the mid 80s, hot and windy. Wearing a body-hugging skirt helped keep cool and prevented inappropriate flashing. This colour combination really POPS - I got all sorts of stares and eyes glued to my crazy bold skirt as I walked past. I hope to recycle this bold pairing with more fall-appropriate pieces once the temperature drops again.

These earrings are from twentythree handmade. I purchased them along with two headbands and Hedwig's Ballad from the Wunderkinblitz collection earlier in the summer but never got around to posting (will do soon). They are really light despite their cute chunkiness and the pink complements my skirt. I love that each earring has a different design too! Asymmetry love.

You guys know my obsession with having utilitarian pockets on my skirts and dresses. I was super happy to find out that this ultra-bright mini from H&M had functional zipper pockets! I love the gold against the fuchsia. Sneaking away snacks and keeping my jewelry safe = gusta. My nails are all ready for fall but this outfit is missing summer. Yesterday post-Immunology all I did was watch a campy Jackie Chan film (Wheels on Meals), ogle at the beautiful documentary Human Planet, and catch up on ANTM and Glee. Life has been a breathable allegretto versus the recent break-neck prestissimo pace. This is the calm before the next cytokine storm.

Cool new Blogger tip: Now there are 7 different Dynamic Views (+ Classic and Magazine in addition to the 5 they released back then) that you can apply as a default view for your blog. You can use these in Dashboard ---> Template. However, SAVE YOUR TEMPLATE FIRST. It will change your layout semi-permanently when you click "Apply to Blog." Preview first with the magnifying glass icon (hover). They're pretty cool! I'm sticking with my custom layout though.

Congrats TORI (2/47) for winning the High Gloss Fashion giveaway! Please email me your final choice piece of jewelry.

The graph of temperature versus public body odor exponentially increases at about 80 degrees.

Hellooo sexy lady! Haha :D I don't doubt that you got many looks that day, because this is def a very eye catching color combo. The skirt looks great on you! And I love the heels too. I don't think I have the guts to wear such a bright color combo though. I prefer to blend into the background and avoid being the center of attention xD
