When you take pictures everyday of yourself, sometimes it is really hard to take it seriously. When we took these photos I could not stop goofing off. Kev was helping me and he was giving me directions like “be a tiger, be an air guitar tiger.” I don’t even know what an air guitar tiger is, let alone would look like. I did however end up with some very silly photos. I can’t help but keep outfit photos light hearted sometimes.

I really loved this outfit. I actually wore it twice over the weekend. For some reason I love orange and bright pink together. I like that it is super bright and contrasting on top than contrasted with black on the bottom. I am a huge fan of these shorts too. I never thought I would own a pair of leather shorts, but they seem to go with everything.
Orange Sweater: NY&Co. (years ago)
Pink Button Up: Thrifted
Leather Shorts: UO
Flats: Target

  1. I just saw this color pairing in In Style over the weekend and wished that I had either shade in my wardrobe. It looks great on you. The pictures are too cute.

    Also, I am loving the nail polish- brand and shade?

  2. I really like this combination as well! I’ll have to give it a go sometime. Also I really love the leather shorts. They seem to really bring the look together. Are they too hot to wear in summer?

  3. I love love your orange cardy!

    I love this color combo! My new favorite is watermelon red with bright yellow.
    I have to say that the thought of leather shorts makes me cringe a little bit, but you look fantastic!

  5. I love this colour combination too – so fun and summery! I have to say I also really love the goofing around photos – perfect poses are all well and good, but it’s nice sometimes to see someone just having loads of fun!

    sweet colour pairing. so which pose is your air guitar tiger? : )

  7. You take some of the best outfit pictures! I”ve never understood why girls feel like they have to look sad or in a state of wonder for their photos.

  8. lol these pics are hilarious! Very cute outfit!

  9. I think the best pics are the ones that look like you’re having fun! I love the color combo of you outfit!! Maybe I’ll be daring and try the bold colors–I LOVE IT!

  10. Awesome pictures! Hope you’re having a great time in gay Par-eeee!

  11. LOVE the outfit and LOVE the shorts. I think they work because they are loose leather, not skintight. And it’s great how you even colorblocked your nails!

  22. Ha ha, so funny! My motto for taking outfit pics is “Don’t take yourself so seriously soI definitely feel you”. I love the orange and pink for sure, looks great!

    I am loving your color blocking outfits! I’m inspired to try it myself. This is one of my favorite outfits you’ve ever worn, and I now want to invest in some leather shorts of my own!

  32. Great combo! I have a bright orange satin jacket which I’ve never worn yet because I can’t figure out how (it’s not the most easy item…) but maybe I should just go all-out and wear it over my new fushia dress ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. I love this! Orange + pink is one of my favorite combos too. ;]
