My Wardrobe Today – Thursday

Lightweight Sweater – Ann Taylor (no longer available – similar)
Side-zipper Skirt – Ann Taylor (no longer online but still in stores)
Leopard Calfhair Pumps – Nine West (no longer available – similar)
Brushed Gold Bracelet – Ann Taylor (no longer available)
Gold Necklace – J. Crew (no longer available – similar)
Tortoiseshell Necklace – Boutique in Rehoboth Beach

Summer will soon be gone, so I better get all my summer-color colorblocking out of my system before it's all about leather, faux fur, scarves and monoblocking (not sure if I can pull of this trend but I sure am loving how it looks). Shocker, I am almost completely in Ann Taylor – that store fits my body and life so well and their fall collection is dangerously awesome. The green they have is one of my favorite colors – can't wait for the weather to cool down so I can pull out my emerald silk blouse from AT circa 2007!

    Heck YES!  I love this outfit and the AMAZING color combo with the pop of leopard.  As Stacy London would say – Shut Up!  🙂

    Love this color combo and fabulous shoes!

    I really love this orange and pink combination. Lyddiegal from iamchiconthecheap.com just wore this same combo and looked marvelous. Makes me want an orange skirt!

    Haha, yes, this color combo rocks. I love the leopard accent!!

    It is a fall fabric, but I just can’t wait 🙂 There’s some other goodies in that store right now that I want to wear now, but know I need to hold off just another month… 🙂

    One day, when I grow up and am cool, I will be unafraid to wear colors together like this.  However, I DID buy an orange belt because of you, so *maybe* I will work up to it 🙂

    This looks great on you!  I agree about Ann Taylor’s fall stuff, it’s fab.  I got a few things including the orange zipper skirt which I cannot wait to wear!

  9. December 6, 2011 / 12:37 am

    That is a great summer pop! You look fab.

    Those brights are amazing and you look fabulous, Allie.

    Thanks for the tip! You are inspiring me to bring out the animal in me! My Mom would be proud!

  12. December 6, 2011 / 12:37 am

    They really are sweet! I can’t bring myself to wear leopard. Maybe a cardigan?

  13. December 6, 2011 / 12:37 am

    YOU, my dear, look incredible. This might be one of my favorite outfits of yours.

  14. December 6, 2011 / 12:37 am

    That’s an easy way to incorporate it this season, and a useful way too. I have a leopard cardigan I don’t wear as often as I should, it’s cute even with a black tee or tank and jeans and looks great with so many colors. This is the season if you want animal print, it’s going to be in every store! 🙂

  15. December 6, 2011 / 12:37 am

    Do it, it’s a happy pair of colors to wear, especially on a dreary rainy day in DC like today!

    You look fabulous.
    This is one of my fave outfits of yours.
    I need to get this combination out of my system too, I have been admiring it for too long.

  18. December 6, 2011 / 12:37 am

    Thank you! LOVE these shoes, will cry when they have to be retired (better not be any time soon!).

  19. December 6, 2011 / 12:37 am

    Now that’s what I call color blocking! And those leopard print shoes go very nicely with that outfit.

    I love that skirt and have since it showed up on the website – I think it was there for three days before it sold out! I really need to check out the local stores to see if there are any left.

    Wow!  You look great!  Terrific outfit.

  22. December 6, 2011 / 12:37 am

    WOW, this is a great look.  Enough so that a long time lurker comes out of the wood work to comment.  Great great look! Orange is my favorite color and I am digging the skirt.

  23. December 6, 2011 / 12:37 am

    You are wearing this color combination!  The leopard shoes totally seal the deal!!

  24. December 6, 2011 / 12:37 am

    I never really crave fall because I know winter is coming and I can’t stand snow. I can’t believe people are already in tall boots and fur! They must be crazy and sweaty.

    You’re looking great! I can see the weight loss is really showing!

  26. December 6, 2011 / 12:37 am

    YAY! My favorite color combo. And you’re ROCKIN’ it.

  27. December 6, 2011 / 12:37 am

    Thanks Alicia! And really, it’s still hot here until October but in DC people seem to crave fall, I already see some crazies in tall boots and fur vests!

  28. December 6, 2011 / 12:37 am

    Love this look!  I am hoping since I live in Florida I can work the color blocking trend a little longer since we will be hot until November!

    loveLoveLOVE the way you’re rocking colorblocking!!!
