She's always buzzing just like neon

This is what I wore last Sunday to a family party... but it rained before I got to photograph it. I put it on the following morning, and it was just too darn bright in the AM! The exposure on these shots was terrible and I had such a hard time trying to correct them. I was debating whether or not to post them, but I loved the outfit.

This color combo of fuchsia and orange is one that I have seen a hundred times this summer and when I spotted this Ellen Tracy tank at TJMaxx on clearance for $5, I decided I had to have it, just for the sake of color blocking it with this orange mini.

  4. OOOh pretty, I love it. I am considering buying a top in that color to wear with my orange shorts. Love the bracelet;)

  5. nice! I think everyone has done orange and pink by now but yours is different because of the pop of turquoise and the star bracelet just adds perfection to it.
