In The Zone








{Flared Trouser Jeans ~ Torrid / Kelly Green Satin Top ~ Simply Vera Wang / Hot Pink Drapey Sleeveless Cardi ~ GAP / Pink Painted Bangle ~ Street Vendor / Nude Patent Pumps ~ Guess / Handbag ~ LV Damier Azure Noe / Pearl Chandelier Earrings ~ Vintage}

So, I survived Hurricane Irene! HOORAY! 

Luckily, we didn't sustain any damage and we only lost power for about 20 minutes. The weekend was spent indoors cooking delicious food {new recipe coming this week!}, having a wine party with Cory and relaxing on the couch watching movies and reading my new book; it felt good to laze around in leggings and a t-shirt and not feel guilty about it.

For some reason, whenever I grab this bright green top to put on, I always reach for a bright punchy color to pair with it, just like I also did here.  The same is true for black and white; I almost always want to wear a bright red pop of some sort. These are the kinds of comfort zones I am trying to shy away from in the upcoming change of season. 

Having more fun with my wardrobe is an immediate goal of mine and I can't wait to make it happen. ...thinking outside of the box.  ...the unexpected.  Seriously, if I can't have fun getting dressed, why bother, right? :)


xoxo, thanks for reading!
