Down, Up, Open, Closed

This outfit doesn't really make sense. I mean...black, orange, brown, and purple? What in the what?? That's because I'm awesome. BOOM. (Keeping it short tonight. Chase made me choose between him or my computer. I didn't want to hurt his feelings so I said computer. Kidding. I chose him. Duh. SEEYA.)

  1. This is fantastic. The purple and orange go really well together (surprisingly). Definitely need to try that colour combo sometime. I'm also extremely jealous of how amazing your hair looks up.

    PS- That trench fits you so freaking well!

  4. I'm very impressed that you either buy beautiful white roses every week or you have immortal flowers that look fresh and gorgeous all the time.

    I think all those colors meld beautifully together. Just for kicks, throw in some green and blue next time so you can feel like you're wearing a party!

  5. I like the name of the blog, at first I was like whhhaat?? But it makes sense now. I LOVE that trench coat, it fits you perfectly, how did you manage to make it fit you like that even though you got it online?
    Anyway, I like the outfit, I personally would probably wear black boots or something but thats because I'm not as awesome as you, I like that you mixed it up though.
    Anyway, stop reading this! You should be with your husband, its good he made you chose, go have fun =)

  63. You are super cute (and kind to choose your husband. I chose the computer... ;-). And hey, I think this look works because it's a little known fact that purple and orange are actually the same colour.

    I kid you not. They are. Okay, maybe they aren't. But as soon as I saw you wearing this and read your musings about why it works that was my thought: "Well, that's because orange and purple are the same colour." I kid you not (this time for real). That was my thought.

    Though they are indeed both secondary colours and each contain red...maybe that's why? Well, whatever: you look awesome.
