WIWW: Layers of Coral & Slouchy Boots

I’m in coral.  Shocker? Not really, I know. Last week I found myself in some shade of orange three times.  There was a fourth day- but realized my coral ways and opted for fuchsia instead.  I’m a fan of color, for sure.  And the color of my life at the moment is coral.       

Top // Loft (no longer available) * Crop Jeans// Loft
Boots // Madden Girl @ DSW * Necklace // Sam Moon 

This top is from Loft {mind blowing you with surprise today, aren’t I?} and was available for all of 7 minutes.  It flew off the shelves and literally vanished in web world! While on bed rest I regularly perused my favorite shops online and as soon as I saw this top I sent it right over to Jordan to add to my Christmas list.  He must have gone out that day to get it because the next day while I was {yet again} building my wish list of clothes to fill my closet post-babies, the shirt was gone.  I was so bummed. When I opened the gift on Christmas morning I was shocked to see it! And SO excited, of course:) I was convinced that he wasn’t able to get it.  Rock star of a hubby right there. 

Like I’ve said before, my mother in law gets me a lot of the jewelry I wear- and does so well, I must say! This necklace was a gift from her.  After I posted about my first day back to work wearing it, I got so many compliments {thank you!} and questions asking where it is from.

Sam Moon.  {and all it’s glory.}

Between Charming Charlie’s, Sam Moon, and random shops, I have a ton.  A. Ton.  A knotted mess that consumes an entire drawer of our bedroom dresser.  I almost have to select my jewelry the night before because I have actually been late for work sifting through that mess.  I usually end up wearing the same pieces- whatever is laying right on top{and un-tangled}. Sad.

I need a better plan for organization of my hefty collection.  Someone want to come and hang out with me for a week while I de-tangle?  I’ll feed you.

This outfit isn’t terribly creative, but there is something about a good {make me feel pretty} flowy top, a {big and chunky} statement necklace, and {my go-to} skinnies paired with {my-go-with-almost-everything} slouchy boots.  It works. 

Happy Wednesday, friends!  The week is halfway through- always a reason to be happy about that:)

    Love this look! Something I`d totally wear. πŸ™‚ I need to go look around Loft. I`m a huge fan of Charming Charlies. But I`d never heard of Sam Moon. I think I`ll be BFFs with them too!

    I can relate to the tangled mess! My drawers were like that. Until my friend tackled it for me. While I was on bedrest, she tackled my entire closet! Wish we were closer. We`d come help you. πŸ™‚ Lola is obsessed with these kind of projects.
