Blazer? Escada, thrifted (cashmere baby!) Jeans? Calvin Klein (similar here) Shoes? Taryn Rose, Winners 
Tee? Joe Fresh

Did you know I have a Facebook page? If you 'like' me, I could make your Facebooking (I made it a verb) much more exciting...
That's a lie. Facebooking gets exciting when you creep and you find out that your high school crush now lives in Nevada with three wives and a potbelly pig. All I can do is break up your Facebook feed with my soulful photographs and deep commentary. And then you can take the time to ask me if I purposefully dressed like a box of crayons. And I will say it was not on purpose, but I can understand the reference.

Speaking of crayons... My 9 year old niece made this. She glued crayons on a canvas and blow dried the crayons until they melted into a array of amazingness. I want to do this all around my dining room, it's genius...

Loooove this look! That bright blue is fabulous!

And I love the crayon art. I've seen that on Pintrest before and think it's so cool!

Blow dried them? AWESOME. Agreed, must copy your niece.

Love the bright colors! Great blazer on you.

"(...) your high school crush now lives in Nevada with three wives and a potbelly pig." Hilarious! Also, I'm jealous of your ex situation. Mine are all monogamous bores.

The crayon thing is all over reddit - you should see the designs where people draw a couple standing under an umbrella and the crayons form "rain" around them.

Great blue and red colors on you!

I was just wondering if I could get away with wearing red and blue together, in my case, a blue skirt with a red top. Thanks to this post, I've decided I'm definitely going to give it a shot! Now, off to facebook to like your page.

Those shoes are amazing(!), and so is niece's art.

Love the jacket! Beautiful color.

newpetite said...

thats some genius art work there!

I saw a pair of boots in my local thrift store which reminded me of you :-) It was the exact shade of your golden jeans :-)

Lindsey N. said...

Crayon art is so neat! I definitely want to try it.

I love when people dress in red, white and blue without making is seem like red, white and blue. Great job!

Also, THOSE SHOES. that's all.

XOXO, Lindsey

Sidewalk Chic said...

Your shoes are amazing. As is your blazer. I really like how patriotic this looks without being so obvious.

Also, that crayon art project is so cute :)

Ioana said...

your niece is like ..WOW! :) love your outfit, esp that blazer! i envy your thirfting skills :>

emily {tomorrow never knows} said...

You always make red pants look really good. I thrifted some red jeans in LA but I feel like I look like (insert something lame) every time I wear them. I'll work on it, maybe steal some ideas from you.
I still can't get over the crayon thing.

Elizabeth Edith said...

Crayon?!?! Honey, if you weren't so Canadian, it would be obvious you're being so American! ;)

Jenny said...

I totally decided a few weeks ago I want to do this crayon thing as a boarder around my ceilings all over the house! (I have very bold colored walls, it just makes sense!)

Rebecca Jane said...

Loving that bright blue blazer, but loving that amazing crayon-art idea even more!

Maria Trendy said...

Beautiful outfit, those pants are gorgeous. Greetings from Uruguay

contrary kiwi said...

I love to wear bright colours together. It makes a happy outfit even happier. I don't like being scared of colours.

That crayon art is sooooo cooooool!

Nicole said...

I hear JoeFresh is coming to the US. Can't wait!

That blazer is amazing! Just don't wear it when you're making your crayon masterpiece!!

Knittin 'n Stitchin said...

Taryn Rose shoes are awesome!!! I wish I could buy tons of them! She was a foot doctor who became a shoe designer and her shoes are fantastic! When I'm working I stand all day and her shoes are the only ones who don't make my legs and feet ache!

Christine said...

Has your niece been trolling Pinterest?
