You look like the sun

Yesterday my internet went down (who knows why?!) and whenever that happens I always feel like I stare at my computer and think, "Okay... well what the heck and I supposed to do with you now?"  It's hard to imagine that there was once a time in my life when I could be happy using my computer for hours and there was no internet!

I decided to put a little time into freshening up my blog's design, since it's been long overdue. But I'm having an issue getting the color of my images to match the color of my background. Not sure if the color profile is getting altered when I save it or upload it or what - but I can't get them to match. So frustrating!

I have a few more changes to make, but I can't until I figure out how to fix this color mismatch... or decide to make the blog white.

My sister told me this outfit made me look like the sun, which I rather liked. Neon color blocking - hello summer! Hard to believe it's August already...

  3. I hate that the beginning of August (which is my birthday) signals the end of summer (which is my favorite)!

    Love the color combo, I wish I could pull something like that off at work!

  8. Those sandals really are great. I can't stop wearing mine either. So comfy AND cute.

    Also, needless to say, but I'm going to say it anyway, I love this outfit. The pop of turquoise in the necklace with the citrus is just perfect.

  19. Serious style envy... I want to steal this entire outfit. Especially the bracelets. I also want to go to DSW to look for MRKT shoes.

    Whenever the internet goes out I feel I don't know what to do with myself. I'm cut off from the world! I think your images match, but MacBook Air has subpar colors compared to the Pro. Also I might actually be colorblind so you might not want to rely on me haha.

  20. Awesome skirt, my friend. I cannot believe it's August either. Time to put on the brakes.

  39. haha I totally think about that too, I used to do things on the computer without internet and that was normal. Adults back then must have been so much more productive! Anyway, love your bright color mixing, I'd never think to pair it together but you look great!
