Happy first day of spring, everyone! If you didn’t get up to see the sunrise today, make sure you see the sunset – I think it’s neat to see it rise directly east and set directly west on the equinoxes 🙂
The past couple of weeks have been nuts at work. I have been working on editing a manuscript at my job, trying to meet the print deadline – lots of late nights! When work is stressing you out it’s hard to focus on your outfit, but I find it gives me that extra burst of energy: I look good, therefore I can do ANYTHING!
However, I definitely was busy so I stuck with a staple of mine: the Coach Tour dress from ModCloth.
I love the comfort and versatility of this dress. I have it in a host of colors (unfortunately this one is no longer available) and I love finding new ways to accessorize with it. Normally I blend neutrals to let the rust color shine, but I chose a blue cardigan for this outfit to add some complementary tones.
Rust is still a bit new to me. If you had asked me a few years ago if I look good in any form of orange, I would have said “heck no!” Now I love the color and enjoy adding it to my wardrobe. Gotta love when trying something new pays off!
I added some texture to this outfit with houndstooth sweater tights. I love the subtle pattern!
I brought out the handmade jewelry this week. My earrings came from an Etsy shop, which unfortunately is no longer selling fabric button earrings (P.S. I LOVE button earrings!). The necklace has been in my wardrobe for nine years! I bought it at the Minnesota State Fair right before I began high school and wore it almost exclusively through those years. And where did the adorable button bracelet come from? Melissa! She used to sell them at a vintage clothing store in Fargo while we were attending college, and I bought it before I knew she made it.
Also, thanks to my friend Nathan who let me borrow his Canon EF telephoto lens – I’ve been contemplating buying one and he let me take his for a test run! I’m really enjoying it so far, and now that the weather is thawing I can’t wait to take more photos outdoors!
What are some colors you have been scared to wear? Did you ever try it, and how did it turn out? Tell us about it in the comments!
