Abstractly Rosy

I know everyone's pretty much got fallen leaves, suede booties and pumpkin spice errthang on the brain right now, so I'm sure my outfit is reading as more April than September, but oh well. I got this dress recently and felt the obligation to wear it despite the season (and it's still like 80 degrees where I am).

This dress was a surprise find at Forever 21, which other than for it's awesomely cheap trendy jewelry I actually have been staying away from for a while now. Let's call it me finally maturing a bit as I'm realizing that though I can physically fit into a piece of clothing does not mean it's meant for me. Forever 21's target demographic is most likely not the office gal. But sometimes they have a few winners that are too wallet-friendly to resist (like this J.Crew-esque tee worn here, or this awesome dress I've had for a few seasons now) and appropriate for someone too old for short-shorts.

Rainbow Stripes

I actually ordered this skirt as an after-thought since it was on sale and I had a code for an additional percentage off. While I fully expected that this skirt had its possibilities, I did not realize how much I'd actually adore it once I got it in my greedy little hands. So unfortunately for you ladies, be prepared to see this super-fun piece on repeat for the next while. And then maybe even paired with tights and boots for another little while after that.

Have you gals purchased anything lately that you've absolutely immediately adored?

Punk Floral for the Gold

Like my last post, we'll also file this outfit under "stuff to wear now Now NOW." So while temps are still in the high 80s, I'm wearing these brightly-hued shorts - though yikes, I am pale! Maybe it is a good thing that I'll need to be covering up pretty soon so I'm not longer blinding people with my chicken skin-pale legs ...

I'll be sad to retire these sandals though, as they have pretty much been my go-to shoe this summer and have been able to add some nice oomph to my outfits. Who would have thought of gold shoes as such a nice wear-with-everything neutral?

Which makes me think that maybe I need to invest in some more gold-hued footwear. What would you ladies think of metallic gold pumps for the fall, like with a point-toe? Would that veer too much into circa 1986 territory or does it have possibilities?
