Outfit Post: Bright Color Block


I've been wearing these Blu Bijoux beaded bracelets nonstop. They will be seen in many upcoming posts!







 
Dress: Express (olddddd)
Shoes: Enzo Angiolini (also olddddd)
Wallet: Sundae Sky (on major sale here)
Beaded Bracelets: Blu Bijoux c/o Max & Chloe (Skull, Ball)
Neon Chain Bracelet: The Stylist LA
Lips: Revlon "Wild Orchid" // Nails: Sinful Colors "Neon Melon"
 
This outfit is special. Okay, not really the outfit per se, but the pieces themselves. I've had this tunic dress for a long time, dare I say, it was actually my 21st birthday dress. The shoes - my rehearsal dinner shoes! Having not worn either item in a very long time, I was excited to shop my closet and pair them together.
 
I was challenged by Ma Nouvelle Mode to color block and instead of doing the usual top/bottom, I went with a dress/accessory color block. Sure it's bright, but I am loving bold colors right now (who am I kidding - I love them all the time!) Plus, I want to take full advantage before we head into fall!
 
P.S. isn't this the prettiest street? It's probably one of Bill's favorites - doesn't it look like the palm trees go on for forever?
 
I also really love this wallet clutch, even if it doesn't hold much more than basic accessories. Exhibit A:
 
ID, Bank Card, Business Cards, Cash, Phone, and Lipstick
 
 
Sometimes, it's fun to rummage through what you've got and re-discover some once lost items. Have you shopped your closet recently? If so, what did you find? Tell me! I love wardrobe inspiration :) Happy Thursday!
