Orange You Glad

I know, I know... this title has cropped up on about a zillion other blogs over the past few weeks. Well, given my own color combo and the apparent expressions of glee in my face, I couldn't resist. =)

Today I had to dress for a casual outside work event. The sartorial dilemma of that kinda makes my head spin. No heels, no fussy accessories, few (if any) layers (it's not a scorcher today, but still pleasantly warm), and something I can feel comfortable in sitting, standing or running around (on grass, pavement, etc.) all evening. So, I thought I'd build my outfit around these thin, silky cuffed cargo crops and a pair of sandals. After a few unsuccessful attempts of putting together something for my top half, and hankering for something (yet again) in the orange family, I pulled out this embellished tee. It's colorful and requires no additional accessories, thanks to the embellishment! I wanted another layer, though, so thinking back to this variation, I pulled out this sheer, short-sleeved cream-colored cardiwarp. What dilemma?? =)

Top - LOFT / Cardiwrap - Maurices / Cargo crops - Lane Bryant /
Sandals - Nine West (via / Handbag - Urban Outfitters

Last time I wore this top it made me want a creamsicle. This time...well, it still makes me want a creamsicle....

Ring - Banana Republic / Earrings - LOFT

  3. Dear Jessica,
    I'm a huge fan of your blog & your style inspires me! You're chic, sassy & classy--totally cool. I love what you do with color & fit. Between you and me, I think there's too many floral patterns for "bigger" girls that age us--I want to stay fresh & clean with color & clean lines. THANK YOU so much for showing those of us who have curves how to do it right--& LOOK FABULOUS!!!!
