Primary




Dress & Shirt (Loft); Scarf (Jones New York find at Marshalls);
Shoes (Jessica Simpson find at Marshalls); Earrings (Nordstrom)

There is something that feels very elementary with primary colors... like I should be carrying a box of crayolas and a juice box (PS how awesome would it be if I walked into my next meeting armed with both?).  This bold and colorful look seems appropriate for the day after Cinco de Mayo - hopefully the tequila haze has settled and you are ready for the week. My travel schedule for work has been insane lately and I'm extremely happy to be in town this entire week... it will be spent doing important things like laundry, grocery shopping and enjoying some long overdue happy hours ;)

In my opinion the best fashion piece anyone could have is a pair of nuce heeled shoes.. it makes the legs look longer and oh, so elegant! Great look as usual, Heather!

Fun Cinco de Mayo outfit! Love that scarf. And I feel you on the travel thing...I was in town all last week, but worked late 2 nights so I still feel like I didn't get everything done! Enjoy your time at home this week!!

Why is it when I knot a shirt it looks utterly ridiculous but when you do, it looks like it's J. Crew? You have such a gift!

Kalyani said...

Oh how I am loving primary colors in fashion now days! It is wonderful and I love how you have worked it, too! Juice boxes are acceptable aren't they. Or are they nerdy? hmmmm? And get this, my HM is from Mexico and we NEVER celebrate Cinco de Mayo, never. What's up with that?

Angela said...

Love this bright red skirt with the pleats in the front and the nude wegde. Just perfect.

Walking into a meeting with crayolas and a juice box...now with the right attitude, that would be epically hysterical.

Going to a meeting with crayons and juice box in tow would be amazing, actually. Maybe I'll take the habit up for my 9:30 AM math class next semester...at least my notes would be fun, then. Love this outfit, especially the skirt and shoes. Very cute.

This outfit gives a slight nautical vibe but because of the shawl, I think it's one level up! :D Good job in styling this!
