Against the Boards

This is by far the simplest (and maybe most comfortable) outfit I've featured here.  I love how this shirt has a "borrowed from the boys" look due to its oversized shape...yet when you pair it with a slim-cut pant & sparkly necklace, it creates a nice juxtaposition of masculine/feminine.  I'm also a big fan of this color combination - you may recognize them both from Pantone's fall palette here (bamboo & coffee liqueur).

{Side note: we were lighting challenged because of the non-stop thunderstorms that were present all weekend.  Thankfully, we caught a break in the clouds & were able to run out and take pictures before the rain started again.  However, these photos are a little gray due to the overcast skies.}

My reaction to a rumble of thunder overhead

What I'm wearing:
Forever21 blouse (here) & necklace (here), LOFT pants, BCBG booties

This color combination is beautiful! Making me feel so 'fall'. It may be simple, but definitey not boring.

Beautiful! Love the colors together!

Love how you created your own sunshine with the color of your top. I would have never guessed it was F21, it looks expensive! Which is always great. Maybe picking up on now.

I'm a little jealous that you can pull off this adorable yellow shirt so well. It makes so many people look sick and washed-out, but it is perfect on you. Great outfit. - Katy
