J. Crew Orange Top with Electric Blue Jeans


This is my attempt at color-blocking. Blue and orange are both so vibrant but really work together, I think. I've toned down the very loud colors with a fitted black blazer and then funked it up with some black boots.

A very fashionable woman at work told me that she loves my "classy-hip" style. Huh. I never thought of what my specific style is but I feel like that kind of suits me. Classic pieces with a hip twist.

Happy Monday, y'all!









Shirt and necklace: J. Crew
Jeans: Urban Outfitters
Blazer: Zara
Boots: Aldo
Sunglasses: William Rast
Scarf: Gift

YES YES YES!!! How amazing is this outfit and the fact that you found a matching necklace! I'm in the mood for some colour blocking now- too bad my new job is pretty business-y- no bright colours for me just yet!

I wore blue and orange yesterday too!! Well ok, to be fair it was navy and orange, but close enough, right? :) Total jewelry envy of your bubble necklace - I love those and seriously might treat myself to one.

I kinda melted when I got to the last picture. That blue necklace!! So stunning with the orange top and electric blue jeans. I think blue and orange are opposite on the colour wheel (like yellow and purple) and that's why they're so great together. I started thrifting some colourful skirts this year but my pants are pretty much neutrals....boring!

Shybiker said...

Do those pants have batteries or do you have to plug them in? :)

These shades of blue and orange are the team-colors for the New York Mets. I grew up with this color-combination. It's attractive. We have an opening at second-base: can you hit?
