Mid-week pop

Zara sweater, Asos blouse, J.Crew pants, Steve Madden shoes

When it's the end of the week and the work day manages to linger a little longer than it should, I like to turn to my outfits to make the day a bit more interesting and exciting. The other morning I couldn't think of a better way to add a little energy to my 9-5 than to pick out the brightest shades in my closet and mix them together for a little pop. It was my equivalent of that large cup of coffee that accompanies me into the office and paired with a fun top knot and a nude chiffon blouse, my purple trousers and burnt orange sweater were the perfect thing to get the day rolling. In addition to the beautiful weather we've had the past few days, my vibrant outfit was helped me power through one more day that took me closer to an alarm-less Saturday morning.




Also, today is the last day to enter my r-ki-tekt giveaway! Picking a winner tonight at 6pm Eastern. Make sure to enter the contest below for a custom hair bow.
