It’s Friday! And that means it’s time to sport another casual Friday look. I recently acquired this fun cardigan a few weeks ago and it feeds my stripes obsession. Another part of this look that I love is that it has the slightest hint of fall. Sweaters and boots, here we come! This outfit also reminded me of back-to-school time and is something I would wear if I were in school (well, I am in grad school, but that doesn’t really count).

Summer is almost over, so I am trying to wear my summer colors and styles as much as possible. Although many summer trends will spill over into Fall, I’ll miss wearing summer outfits. Here is a casual Friday outfit that includes some of my favorite summer trends.

What summer trends/looks will you miss?
Okay, so I didn’t have lunch at a Parisian cafe, but if I did, I would wear this dress. I love how this dress combines my darling stripes along with one of my favorite summery colors. I recently wore this dress to a baby shower and although I had fun, I long for the day when I’m sitting in Paris sipping on some coffee (or champagne) and eating pastries.
Dress: $19.99, BeBop from Marshall’s
Necklace: $8, Burlington Coat Factory
Wedges: $20, on clearance at Macy’s

Please disregard my messy hair and makeup. I traveled a lot that day to get to the shower and the weather was brutal!
Do you have an outfit that would look perfect in a particular city?
You read the headline right. I celebrated an anniversary for beer. The other weekend we went out with some friends for dinner and then to World of Beer to celebrate their second year anniversary. Any excuse to drink beer, right?
The weather was really hot and the event was outside, so I chose a lightweight dress and wore my hair up in an attempt to stay cool.

Blue Necklace: $10, on clearance from JC Penney
Tan Wedges: $22, Macy’s
Celebrating Beer: $0

I love attending random events (like when I went to a bacon event). What events have you been to lately?
I recently won a fabulous bracelet from a giveaway on Fashion by Alicia in celebration of her blog’s anniversary. The bracelet is from Mae Badiyan‘s boutique where she sells unique jewelry at affordable prices. Here is how I styled this newly acquired accessory:

Where do you like to get your jewelry from?
I love neon green, but my friend criticized it stating it reminded her of the color used in highlighters…which I don’t disagree with. Lucky for me, I love highlighters and their colors! I decided to pair this highlighter tank with a pair of bright white jeans for a casual night out for drinks. This outfit got me reminiscing about school days before ipads and computers.

Whiteout Jeans: $20, Target
Bracelet: $5.95, H&M

When was the last time you actually used highlighter and/or whiteout?
I’m so excited that summer is here! I love the bold colors and bohemian vibe summer brings. This maxi dress is the epitome of a bright summer print with a boho hi-low hemline. I wasn’t a big fan of the hi-low hemline trend, but once I tried it on, I loved how flattering and elongating it was.

Earrings: $8, on clearance at Target

Thanks Crystal for taking the photos!
I went shopping with a friend to help her create a new wardrobe post baby. It was a nice day where she found a lot of staple and fun items. I’ll post more on what she purchased soon. When shopping for clothes, I normally wear clothes that are easy to change in and out of, but since the shopping wasn’t for me, I go to wear what I want.

What do you wear for a full day of shopping? Do you have a shopping outfit strategy?
I was never a big pink fan, but I’m really starting to appreciate this color. I absolutely adore these bright pink pants and I can’t wait to style them all kinds of fabulous ways! I was going to debut them at a fun night out, but I couldn’t wait. So, I created an appropriate outfit for work. Bright colors at work make the day seem so much brighter!

Does wearing bold colors brighten up your day?
On day two in Winston-Salem, we toured around the city including downtown, historic Salem and Wake Forest University. Winston-Salem is a beautiful town full of history…not so much in color trends. I sort of stuck out in this bright teal/blue color combo. My outfit might have been a little too loud for this quiet city.

Clock Watch: $5, on clearance from Macy’s
Ring: $6, booth in San Antonio trade show

Have you ever felt like you stuck out in your bold color combo outfit?
