Pumpkin Chic

Thursday, November 04, 2010
The last time I wore orange and green together someone asked me why I was dressed like a pumpkin. It might have had something to do with the pumpkin suit I was wearing.

This outfit was all about my new shoes. I wanted to pair them with my curtain skirt, which I wanted to wear with my orange shirt. And then I added my pink necklace because I guess it wasn't enough color for me. I was telling Chase that this outfit doesn't look like me, my style. But personal style is all about change and experimenting and evolving in the process...like breaking your rules.

  22. what wonderful shoes. Looks very nice with the skirt and the color of the tee is very flattering.

  23. Those shoes are gorgeous. Are they comfortable? Love your outfit.

  24. These shoes are beautiful- I never think I'm going to like a certain type of shoe (I'm kind of a shoe snob) but then when I see them on someone I fall in love...love them.

  25. You look so adorable here! I looove the shoes, they're fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I saw the picture of the shoes by themselves and didn't like them... then I saw them on Elaine. How do you make everything look wearable and necessary? You have quite a gift!

  29. Your shoes are just adorable! And I don't think you look too pumpkin-y, just festive enough. ;)

  30. Stunning as always. I love green and orange together; those were actually our wedding colors and people thought I was weird for choosing them. They clearly hadn't seen this outfit.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love orange! Those boots are to die for, and you look great in it (not at all like a pumpkin :)

  35. Canadian Americans do exist. It's called duel citizenship. lol
    Loved that the last time you were asked if you were a pumpkin part...
    sorry it's late.

    I agree. Style changes.

  37. Patterned skirts are statement pieces and are difficult to wear with confidence.But you do a great job breaking the rules or not.

  41. I want those shoes. They are the perfect shoe for fall in LA. I love how they are pumps with a laced up cuff. What an amazing look. Your curtain skirt has got me looking at all the curtains in my house differently....

  42. I love this "pumpkin" outift! But, I just don't see it... you look so glam and un-pumpkin-like :)

  43. plaid + floral = perfection! I'm jealous of your shoes too :)
