MORANGE. This to-ze-
chopper mall outfit was taken over a month ago (9/23), and the original title of "Wake Me Up When September Ends" goes to show how much of a backlog and crazy month of nonstop busy-ness I've had. This is the first day I've had to slow down and just sit somewhere and have an ounce of forced chillaxing. As my friend Cassandra put it, "Personal time, what's that?" Going to try my best to double post every day until I'm caught up.
Outfit breakdown: ORANGE. I have way too much vibrant orange in my closet (this sweater, 2 skirts) that I'm getting tired of it. Most of the pieces are old - the jeans are from a long time ago in high school when I would snag all sorts of ill-fitting bootcut and flare jeans at Ross for under $15. This one has an interesting bootcut/half flare going on and I like the shape it creates. Rule 1 of flares: always, always wear with high heels or wedges. I've been out of practice because every time these leopard print babies are dusted off and slipped on, I'm walking on
sunshine wobbly stilts. Charming Charlie necklace from Florida (pricey and overly-girly store, no offense Cassandra) - another great statement piece. Note to self: do a post with the awesome Bat & Robin tee from Nikki's giveaway I won so long ago. Here it's just a light blue underlayer.
My interview weekend turned out to be a mini vacation. All around it was a fun day full of small talk and deeper discussions, but there really wasn't any pressure. No attack of the "pimping" interviewer. It was good to be back home in Ohio and amongst good family friends. Another thing to jump and scream about (see my Angie-acts-weird-photo reprise) is the fact that there is food in our fridge and Hello Panda snacks in the pantry.
Readers - is bright orange a hot colour for fall or are you over it?
