Sunny Look for a Gloomy Day

It is 1pm and completely dark outside. Thunderstorms in KY today!  In my mind, though, it is still a bright and cheery sunny day.  So, I thought my clothing should evoke that bright, cheery vibe.

I just knew that my Loft zip pocket dress would help me achieve the above mission.  It has a beautiful, sunburst orange color dubbed “red passion.”  Today, the dress is worn with a canvas and leather belt. The Loft crinkle jacket, tan peep-toe pumps, and a top handle bag add finishing touches.

Belt—The Limited
Shoes—Tahari via UpperBid
Bag—Marina Rinaldi via family

See Color Blocking for a Weekend at Keeneland and Brightly Colored Work Outfit for alternative looks with the same dress.

    I was eyeing that jacket yesterday, loved the stripes and the drape of it. You look great, coral is such the color right now.

    You are seriously starting to become one of my style inspirations! I have this dress and NEVER thought about topping it with stripes. You look gorgeous!

    @Andi: Thanks! The stripe jacket kinda made the dress over 🙂

    @EbonyCPrincess: Right! It is one of my fave colors of the season too.

    @Sing: Wow! If this jacket is still in store, it must have a super low price. It sold out so quickly when first introduce. I hope you snagged it!

    @Lori: See now, we can shop together! There is rarely a reason to pay full price for anything these days.

    @Kish: How sweet! I have had this dress and jacket for a minute and have also never thought about pairing them until now.

    @Capis: Thanks! Good to hear from you!

    @Shasi: No doubt! You gotta hit up the Loft. The Loft's summer collection hasn't drawn me in as much as its spring styles though. But, the store keeps introducing the new things, so I am excited to see what's coming up next.
