Citrus Layer

 Button Up: Ralph Lauren, Tanks: c/o Blush, Club Monaco, Skirt: Madewell, Shoes: YSL, Bag: Alexander Wang, Necklace: c/o Silpada, Sunnies: Ray Ban

I really can't get enough orange these days...my radar goes off every time I come remotely close to it. So when I stopped by to visit my mom and saw this baby hanging in her closet my radar went off and was making all kinds of hideous noises.  It was the perfect layering piece and needless to say I was absolutely thrilled that I left with one more citrus hue to add to the vault!

So with you on that one, I am loving orange & citrus shades these days! These brights are killing me in the best of ways! And I really love the layering of the tanks with the skirt here - so soft & pretty! And yes, also glad we finally connected!! xo.

Fashion Momma said...

Love how you paired the bright orange with neutrals... and all flowy pieces! You look so summer! And the way you feel about orange, lately, is how I'm gravitating toward turquoise. I can't get enough!
