Orange & Stripes!

Since it's finally been dry and sunny here recently, I have been considering wearing my orange skinnies from H&M. Honestly, I wasn't sure I had the guts to do it! Anyway, one of my daily reads is Color Me Blue. I came upon this post the other day that inspired me and gave me the final push I needed to wear those babies!! Mandy styled them perfectly!! I didn't go for her exact look, as you can see, but here's what I came up with.

I chose short sleeves because J and I were heading to a {really fun} Superbowl party after church, and I knew it would be warm and crowded. It ended up being perfect!

all ready to go!

top: Old Navy
skinnies: H & M
stilettos: Jessica Simpson Collection
leather jacket: Cole Haan

What do you think about this look?? 

I got lots of stares at church. Haha. But at the Superbowl party a few friends told me they never would have paired these pieces together, however they liked the look. I also have been playing with my eye shadows more. This board on my Pinterest has some eye make-up inspiration I've been using as a guide. Unfortunately I took the make up photo at the end of the day, so you couldn't see the colors as well. Sorry about that!

The middle is a greenish color and the outside is a deep purple with a little smoky black powder to line the top and bottom.

Update on my Auntie: I stayed last night in the ICU with her. She's still very ill but today my mom said she was alert, which is a huge step!! She still has a long way to go, but every bit of progress is FABULOUS!! Thank you for the kind comments and tweets!!
