Golden Hour

We took photos later than normal last night and goodness did they turn out nicely. I think the sunset compliments my yellow belt quite nicely!

The goal of this outfit was work appropriate but cool and a little fun. I am currently having a love affair with strips and this lovely little tee was a nice companion to this khaki skirt. I normally hate khaki, I just find it really boring, but I love this skirt as a nice neutral. The belt continues with this weeks yellow theme, I thought it added a fun pop of color to the mostly black and whiteness of the outfit. The purse is one of 3 I have in heavy rotation and was just the right size to take to dinner with the family.

This is what happens when you take outfit photos at 7pm and its still 102 out. Seriously OVER this heat wave!

The magic dress

I got this magic dress while I was home. I say "magic" because my cousin, sister, and I all got one and it looks great on all of us! There are pictures to prove it, but they're on my mom's camera.

I also got the belt and shoes while I was home. We had one day of shopping fun and it was quite successful. I had been looking for a belt that was light and dark and this was PERFECT and on sale!! Also, it was a gift from my lovely cousin, so really the belt is just made of win.

I think the thing I love most about this outfit is how good I feel in it. I've spent the last 7 months working on my fitness in prep for my wedding, and its fun to get to wear new things and feel really great in them!

I'm back

I had a wonderful trip in Denver and once folks put up photos on Facebook that I can steal, I will attempt a post of my Denver Fashion, but for now we'll go with what I wore to work today.

I ordered this skirt and belt from Ruche before I left town and was SO excited to come home to them. I've developed a bit of a belt problem (as you'll soon notice) but I figure as a girl who has never had belts before, I'm 25 years behind on building my collection.

This skirt had to be mine the moment I saw it! Elephants and my current favorite color combo of gray and mustard? Get in my closet!

I wasn't planning on wearing the belt and skirt together but when I got dressed this morning, it just made sense!

Pink shoes (my translucent skin version of the nude shoe) and red toes topped of the outfit.
