Outfit Details: Top: Forever 21, gift; Cardigan: Gap; Jeans: Per Se, via TJ Maxx; Shoes: Blowfish

While this is Saturday’s outfit, today (October 3rd) is my birthday. I’m now twenty three. Weird. I think next year will be interesting, simply because I’ll have outfits to compare to. I wonder how much my style will change in a year?

Anyways; this outfit. I’ve started to love bright colors more and more lately. This pink top was exactly what I needed to head to the store on Saturday. I could have thrown my white cardigan over top, but I wanted even more color. I love the absolutely wonderfully bright combo. I just wish my shoes had carried the same brightness through the outfit, but at the time I thought it would have been a bit too overwhelming. There are always outfit do-overs however, so maybe next time…

I’ve been crazy busy lately (hence the inconsistent posting) but everything for this week (fingers crossed!) completely is on track.

Wednesday Obsession: Bright Colors

This post easily relates back to my Sunday Shoes post this week. I’m absolutely in love with this season’s bright colors. The Colorblocking trend is definitely something I plan to incorporate into my wardrobe. As someone who frequently wears all black, I’m looking forward to these added pops of color.

I think I’m in love with this guy–needless to say he has style. Those pants + that blazer? That = me swooning. Seriously, what’s not to love? I seriously wish the guys around here dressed like that.

Obviously bright doesn’t just extend to clothes. I’m obsessed with crazy colored makeup (green lipstick might be a little out there for me, but I’d for for purple mascara!), and I’ve recently started collecting nail polish. I just bought OPI’s Ya’ll Come Back Ya Hear? the other day–it’s a brilliant shade of orange and I was immediately drawn to it over all the other colors in the display. (I’m embarrassed to admit that I only own 2 different nail polishes. And I bought them both this year…)

Lastly, I’ll leave you with these stunning nails inspired by Prada’s Spring/Summer Collection 2011. Stunning, isn’t it?

Sunday Shoes: Landlocked, Colorblocked

featured here.

I’ve recently fell in love with this pair of Zara heels that are wonderfully colorblocked. I originally saw them featured in Cupcakes and Cashmere, and then they popped up again on a different blog recently taunting me. Unfortunately, there is not a Zara anywhere in my state, which means I can’t get a hold of them.

So here are some substitutes from all price ranges. I personally love shoes with a heel on them, so all of these have a little bit of height (perfect for a short girl like me!).

Can I just say love? Prices on these range from $26 to over $600. I’ll have to hunt down a pair I really love this summer (or save up for those Marc Jacobs ones).
