marigold moment

this weekend a dear friend and avid CP supporter texted me a picture of herself in this hot little jumpsuit, headed out on the town (and looking fabbbb). words can’t explain how much it meant to me– I thought my heart was going to burst. I couldn’t believe there is not only someone willing to read my jumble of thoughts and ideas on the internet, but also someone who wants to buy (and wear) them!!!??! Little encouragements like this are the reason I keep blogging. ❤️ you all, chicas. 

now on to today’s main event– 

mustard, marigold and dandelion yellow are all having a major moment this fall. while the bright color might scare you, it’s actually quite versatile– perfect paired with denim, navy, black or brown. It provides a little pop of excitement and is rich enough to be muted into some very sophisticated looks. Scroll to shop my current finds featuring the hue…

the black sheep

last week while perusing a few other fashion blogs (you can see an old list of ones i frequently read here), i stumbled across a yogurt launch on pink peonies. the topic of how i feel about using a fashion blog to launch a yoplait product is something i will save for another day (i lol-ed so hard at a reader’s comment that the event was nicer than her wedding, #amen girl). however, i was immediately struck by the image below, of a bonafide fashionista in a striking black jumpsuit– the black sheep of the group among a sea of pastel sameness.

I meannnn…how bananas does she look??! the haircut, the nail color, the sunnies….it strikes the perfect balance of trendy and classic…like she could have spent 3 hours or 3 minutes putting this look together.

i was already on the war path to recreate the look for myself, with an ordinary black romper, but as fate would have it, an unrelated scroll of h&m’s new arrivals a few days later found me THE EXACT ONE— grommets in the back and all. for a whopping $49!!!! mic drop.

since this insanely chic item is not likely to last, get yourself one before they’re gone. Now let’s deconstruct the rest of her epic look below…

1— h&m lace up jumpsuit

2— sculptural gold cuff (hers is fendi, now sold out)

3— a pop of coral lipstick

4round sunnies a la john lennon

5— chloe bracelet handled bag

6— simple beige mules

7–nars metallic polish

8— gold bauble bar drops
