Orange glow

The weather this weekend was, in a word, cruddy. Friday was nice, so I'm posting Friday's outfit.
But other than the weather, I actually had a pretty great weekend. I got to have dinner with an old friend who I hadn't seen in pretty much forever; I got an important but annoying task over with, had an amazing lunch with my Mom who was trying her damnedest to get me to hit on our adorable waiter (I'm such a flirting failure, it's not even funny), and I went shopping.
lunch at ballos truffles
As far as the things on my summer wishlist: red shorts, new espadrilles (old ones are falling apart), and a cute, bright dress that would work for day and evening --- I got none of those.

I did go into Old Navy and buy that pink and cream chevron top I'd blogged about because I couldn't get it out of my head, and then I saw a pair of oversized seafoam sunnies. Which, honestly, when have you EVER seen a pair of sunnies like that? For $7? I really couldn't help myself.

Also my most recent ebay win arrived in the mail; more on that tomorrow.

  5. You look so cute in my favorite color, orange you glad? heehe Hey I'm a flirting failure too! I thought I was the only one, welcome to the club. I'm so bad I don't even notice when someone is flirting with me, till someone else mentions it, and then I still can;t see it. Anyways, cute outfit.

  23. LOVE this outfit! The statement necklace and woven bag are the perfect accessories for the fun ensemble!

  24. My mom totally used to do that when we'd go out! Waiter, bartender, cashier at the store, random guy on the train - anyone could have been my potential dream guy.

    I love your new shirt! And that orange skirt is so cute!

  25. The whole outfit looks so amazing. I adore that clutch and the sweet skirt! Have a lovely Monday, sunshine

  26. Those sunnies are perfection...and so are the sandals!

  27. Ha. Better luck next time. I'm trying to be super-structured about my purchases these days, but somehow something ridiculous (like sunglasses) always manages to seduce me... ; )

  28. Goodness, that outfit with the sunlight? Just stunning girl! And that chevron top looks fantastic on you! Can't wait to see you style it up (could I be more of a stripes fangirl??).

  29. the weather sucked around here too! But your Friday outfit is stunning! That necklace is just beautiful...xo

  30. I went to DSW today but they only had one pair of MRKT shoes :( Love that skirt so much! I'm glad you decided to get the seafoam sunglasses too!

  31. Love that chevron top and seafoam sunnies? I was just drooling over Burberry ones I saw in Lucky Mag...might have to run to Old Navy.

  32. Man, I totally overlooked the sunglasses when I went to Old Navy the other day :(
    I love the ways you've styled this skirt--it looks great with the stripes and faux-thropologie necklace!

  33. I say next time just give the waiter "the eyes". That way he'll flirt with you and that's always so much easier!

  34. loving your look here, but obsessing over the cute little bag!
    you are making me hungry looking at those yummy food pictures. :)

  35. love the clogs! and your brights! amazing pieces. keep it up
    big love, wwndie xxx
