I decided that a sunny day calls for a sunny look.

The Breakdown:
Grey v-neck (tucked in)
Dark denim jean.
Brown loafers + light green socks.
Topped off with a fedora.

Sleeves Aren't the only thing you can ROLL UP

Rolling up your sleeves is commonplace, whether you are in the office or out working in the heat. However, I'v noted a sort of equestrian trend recently involving rolled up pant cuffs and not just enough so that your pants don't drag against the floor, but well above the ankle. The outcome is similar to capri cut pants, but with more flexibility to roll the cuff up or down. 

I think it's a really nice way to highlight a high top shoe such as the boots I'm wearing above. It might also be an interesting way to introduce a colored or patterned sock

FYI: This blazer/coat is one of my favorite pieces...bought it at the thrift store for under $5!

COLOR blocking

Today, I woke up to a bright and sunny day...So, I decided I should wear a bright color! Shown above is a shirt I actually stole from my father. Not quite sure where he got this bright orange shirt, but I love it. Then I paired it with my favorite dark denim jacket and a neutral trouser and shoe. 

It's my stab at COLOR blocking since I know the spring season is approaching!
