AN ORANGE AND PINK COLOR STORY

This week is really bad for my wallet! I go through periods when I’m finding tons of stuff and others when it’s a total dry spell. Right now it’s the former. The Nordstrom sale I posted about last week is now in full swing with some pretty amazing deals. And then there are all the other sales. Everything I’m wearing in this outfit is on sale! My flounce midi skirt is only $20, can you believe it? It comes in a chic polka dot print, which is not on sale but still only $32 full price so it won’t exactly break the bank.
This tee is perfect for summer and comes in several colorful stripe combos. And I love the fit, which is on the slimmer side, plus the sleeves which are also a teeny bit longer and slimmer than the usual J.Crew tees, which I generally buy for casual wear. Speaking of the usual tees, this gold star on grey background tee is so cute. 

 

Straw bags are always on point. It’s a trend that’s here to stay which means you’ll get to use this bag over several years. I love finding the brands not everyone is carrying and one of my finds this season is from the Kaanas line. This pink straw circle bag, currently on sale for only $70, has super cute details. I like the pink is a very neutral rose/peach rather than a pastel or something more saturated. It’s easy to wear with any color and will be a fun contrast with Fall’s deeper shades as well (think wine and olive.) The orange and pink pairing is so fresh and fun for summer. One note about this bag is that the top is open. The opening itself is a little narrow so you kind of have to slide your fingers in. This doesn’t bother me but I wanted to call it out just in case you’re looking for something that closes. Although you probably know by now that my picks don’t always rate high on practicality:) Great for carrying smaller things and looking cute though! It also comes in natural if you’re not into pink.

Last but not least, my brown leather sandals (last seen here) is now 30% off and only $80. This is a GREAT walkable sandal that you’ll get tons of wear out of. As you can see from this post, it goes with many different styles of outfits. The leather molds to your feet very quickly. I’ve been able to do a ton of city miles in these sandals and I highly recommend these as a practical but chic purchase. And at the current price it’s a total no-brainer. They run TTS.

I had to twirl for this post because the great thing about this skirt, besides the striking color, is its movement. As you guys know, I love anything with fluidity and that creates a sweep as you walk, and this skirt gets an A+ for the “swishy” factor.
