Today's Everyday Fashion: Guest Post


This is a guest post while J is away. Be sure to check out Alyson's blog, Crushing on Clothes!

In Seattle, summer doesn't exactly mean "HOT". It means occasionally sunny and about 73 on average. However most days, it seems to be overcast, and even rainy (ugh right?!) So since I can't always wear tons of adorable summer outfits, I often have to bring summer to the city with lots of bright color! I saw this outfit and KNEW I had to recreate it because of all the fun colors. The J Crew pants are honestly the most comfortable pants I own, and the jean jacket is mine from 1st grade! It obviously wasn't cropped back then, but it still works! Amazing, huh?! I just loved how there are so many bright colors, but they all work so well together. Don't be afraid of color this summer; just play around and have fun!

  20. Oh man!  I thought I held onto clothes for a long time!  That's a great story!  I love your fresh bright look-- the rain will have to submit to your colourfulness now! xD

  22. Haha I found it in a box in my basement, and was SHOCKED it still fit. Even though it's cropped, I love it :) it's a fun piece!

  23. Cute outfit!  The only thing I have a problem with are.... the Toms!  I just don't get why these are popular now.  My personal opinion is that Toms (in general) are the ugliest shoes I have ever seen.  I don't find them stylish or cute at all.  And for $50!!! No way... Sorry just my opinion.

  25. Love the neon bag! And the color of those pants is perfect - great job! :)

  26. Haha, I agree with you, JB!  In my view, Toms are in the same category as Crocs and Uggs.
