March 14, Orange is the New Black

After my streak of black and white (and grey and white), I decided I needed a burst of color in my OOTD, so I chose this bright orange tank and paired it with blue jeans and a cardigan.

In my ‘before’ look my straight leg jeans and black ballet flats are a little dated, and there is something about wearing orange and black that reminds me too much of Halloween!

To fix my outfit, I changed into skinny jeans (these are my Gap ones, which seem to be my favorite), tucked in my tank, added a belt and then threw on this cute shrug cardigan. To complete my outfit, I decided to wear these fun T strap black Paul Green shoes. I am a HUGE fan of Paul Green shoes. Yes, they are expensive, but since my feet hurt all the time, these are a dream. They are very well made and incredibly comfortable. Plus, I think they add an edgy/ unexpected touch to my outfit!

This tank will be cute in the summer with white jeans, or jean shorts. Love the bright color!

On a freezing cold day, there is nothing better than a huge cozy sweater. In my before look, I have on straight leg jeans and left my sweater untucked. I’m also wearing some slip on loafers that are old and frumpy looking.

In my after look, I have replaced the mom jeans with a cute pair of skinny jeans from the Gap.

Since this sweater has such an open neckline, I’ve also switched out my boring bra for a cute bralette from Target.

I also added a few bracelets- just for fun! (God my hands are wrinkly!!)

Last, I put on these cute boots that tie in with the color of my sweater.
