Orange & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up Party!

April 14, 2016

Orange is in!  And it’s just what an outfit needs for a pop of spring color.  

Recently I purchased this little cross body bag at Nordstrom Rack to add a little more orange to my wardrobe. (Unfortunately now it’s sold out.)

In our neighborhood right now, California poppies are everywhere!  I think it’s inspiring me.  And Lucky seems to like them too! 

Even my bestie and work buddy, Lynn (IG: @fashionlynnspiration) is showing off her orange!   (Fab exact jacket in shopping links.)


Last week’s fab favs …

Miriam of Farm Girl looks like a spring vision in this on point outfit!

Sofia of Stylishly in Love looks glam and ready for a special evening on the town.

Debbie of Fashion Fairy Dust layers her bright print maxi skirt to make it work for chillier temps.
Link up, link back, & have fun, Dolls!

    A pop of colour always brightens the day. Orange is a 'new' colour for me, but it seems perfect for summer.

    Just discovered your blog and while not 40, as I approach, I too am learning to go outside of my comfort zone. To be bold, wear color and just be me! It's so funny that I read this post last week, but I saw these over the weekend and thought of you! They're sold out in my size, but perhaps they have them in yours!

  • Reply Simply Davelyn April 23, 2016 at 11:01 pm

    Love your vest! So cute!
