where seasons meet


Short weeks always feel longer than they should, don't you think?  I only had to work three days this week (I'm off every other Friday (I love my job)) but they were three complicated, hectic, exhausting days; I am so ready for the weekend.  As evidence of my busy week, I present you Tuesday's outfit on Thursday night.

One of my style strengths is color pairing- I like contrasting, complimenting, and clashing to find new combinations.  When I have those nothing-to-wear moments I pick one item and go down the rack (my closet is organized by color) pairing it with the various hues in the ROYGBIV spectrum, and that's how this outfit was born.  The cyan and mustard duo is a great summer-to-fall transitional palette and when you throw a little leopard into the mix, the result is nothing if not eye-catching.

It's the oddest thing with short work weeks - they always feel super long to me too :)

Awesome colours as ever and I adore your ring!
