Colorfully Wonderful

Thursday, October 28, 2010
Day two of taking pictures in the early morn. It's actually not that early. But it's the earliest I've been up since high school...especially since I had to do early morning seminary.

How do you like my wonderfully colorful outfit today? I think this is the most color I've worn in my whole life...besides that one time I was a pink Power Ranger. That was awesome.

Here's a close up of my necklace. Just to reiterate I bought this necklace (on final sale) and another cheap-o necklace and used the latter metal chain for this pink necklace. That didn't make sense. Basically, I used two necklaces to make this one...and, basically, I'm horrible at explaining things...and telling jokes. Just ask Chase. I'm always the only one laughing.

Don't forget to enter the giveaway to win one out of three scarves!! That's right - three winners. If all three winners want the same scarf, you'll have to fight to the death. Or pay me in cookies. Whichever's easier. We have to change that to celery sticks. I just ate too many brownies for dinner.

  13. i am so bad at telling jokes too. i always, but ALWAYS forget the endings and keep inventing them so, obviously, the joke becomes such a mess. and it is sooo frustrating, as i always laugh by myself, like you, and can't really tell the joke right so others would laugh with me :D

  18. This green cardigan really works on you! I've been searching for a green cardigan that I love for years. And I love mixing the green with the pink. It really pops and yet the outfit still has great fall hues. LOVE IT!

  38. That skirt is so pretty- I really like how you styled it. The different colors worked well together. It's really creative how you reworked the necklace- I actually never even thought of doing that. But I have to say, JC Penny's is the best place for a treasure hunt- I always find great things at great prices there.

  54. You are nearly at 2000 followers!!! That is incredible. You are easily one of my favorites. I'm always looking for modest clothing ideas and you've got some great style. The colors of your outfit are gorgeous!

  55. That skirt, that skirt! I tried so hard to buy that skirt when it went on sale! My size was sold out everywhere! Now, when I see it on someone, I shed a little tear and maybe even get a little jealous :)!
    P.S. Don't even get me started on early morning seminary! I'm from MT and getting up at the crack of dawn when it was 60 degrees below zero was pure hell!

  56. Gorgeous shot! I'm loving the shoes. Have a glorious day, Kellie xx

  59. very cute :) I adore that hallway you're in!

  60. That's a perfectly coloured outfit. I really love teh print on the skirt. And love the shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I think enough has already been said about the skirt and how pretty you look in it. i just want to add that not many people realize that it's not just the clothes that are important. What's more important is knowing which ones are right for you. You have a knack for getting your looks right.

    ReplyDelete
  62. The outfit is still subdued, definitely not blinding. I like it. That skirt is beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  63. The necklace is gorgeous! I didn´t know yellow, green and pink would blend in wonderfully.

    ReplyDelete
  64. The colors looks good! You put them together perfectly. :D Also, that necklace is freakin' awesome even if I don't quite understand how you made it. Hah.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Your skirt is very pretty. I like the morning light coming through the window.

    Thanks for your devotion to being fashionable and modest. I am LDS too and have four young granddaughters who are striving to look nice and be modest. I will have to introduce them to your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I absolutely adore you and your adorably cute blog, but not being able to see your full post in Google Reader makes me want to die a little. sorry, big blog party foul. :(

    ReplyDelete
  67. Wow! This is a lot of color for you, but you are owning this look! The skirt looks lovely with that green cardi!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I love the green cardigan! I don't think I've ever seen anyone tuck in a cardigan! it looks very chic and I love this outfit!

    ReplyDelete
  69. The pattern of your skirt looks like autumn leaves - together with the green cardigan it's a great combination.

    Good luck with trying to become more of a morning person... I'm intolerable in the early morning myself, but I know the problem of coming home when it's already dark.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I love that skirt and all the different ways you've styled it!

    ReplyDelete
  71. aw love this outfit and all the bright colors! that pink necklace is so cute too! haha i can totally picture you as a power ranger! wasn't there an asian one? i used to love that show...but then it started getting a little too cheesy...or maybe i just got too old to be watching it :P
    thanks for all your comments on my blog lately! :)
    hey you should show us some pics of your apartment, from what i can see it looks really nice...plus i'm just really nosy about people's houses :)

    ReplyDelete
  80. You look beautiful! I love the colors in this outfit. There may be a lot of color, but it's also toned down fall color so I think it works perfectly for right now. Plus, I love your playful poses down the hallway!
