Straight to Happy Hour

I think I seriously have too much orange in my wardrobe.  I promise {I will try} to not post anymore outfits in this color.  I tell you, it's in my blood....from my high school days...if you have been reading my posts...Jacket Pride Never Dies!   Or maybe it's because I live in Austin, Texas and this town bleeds orange...does anyone want to say 'Hook Em'?

Whatever the reason, these days, I seem to be wearing this color in every shade possible. I just can't get enough of it.  I will worn you, you are about to see me in a plethora of mint {see my last post}.  This is another color that is raiding my closet.  I need some new colors, people!

Anywho, I wore this last week to work, but the tribal print skirt can definitely fit into your weekend wear.  These prints are popping up everywhere.  I must admit, I am not a big fan of the whole native/tribal/new west trend, but I like it in {small} doses...especially in skirts.  Wait until you see what I got in the mail today...next week...promise.  Hint: it's another skirt!

So, here is an easy, conservative, yet fun and trendy workday outfit.

Take a full blouse shirt and tuck it into your pants or skirt.  Add a belt if you want a strong transition between your top and bottoms.
Gold link necklaces or bracelets are an easy way to add 'extras' to your outfit.
Peep-toe heels are a must...in both brown and black.  They go with anything and everything!
Belts are a simple and quick 'go-to' to help separate your look. Don't forget the bracelets and ring!
There you have it!  A modern and classic look that can go from day to night!

Top:Francescas (similar) | Skirt:Francescas (similar) | Belt:From Another Top (similar) | Shoes:Payless | Necklace:Thrifted @ Plato's Closet (similar) | Other Jewelry:Gifted 




Cheers to going straight to happy hour AND not going home to change!

I love this look. I wish I got out of work early enough to get to happy hour. I am so jealous!
And it's not a bad thing to have too much orange if you look good in it!
