orange you glad

I clearly seem to have an affinity for orange and navy lately, so when I was perusing the magical rack of Meeps clothing that Cathy picked out for me, this little baby caught my eye. There's something ladylike, yet at the same time cartoonish about this jacket that somehow balances it out perfectly. Naturally I had to take it for a spin at the Meeps opening, where I saw quite a few items who might like to join it :-).

So what's the plan for the weekend? Run away and escape forever?

ASOS necklace (old, but very cool one here)
vintage jacket c/o Meeps
top c/o Joie (in marigold here)
Hermès and Amrita Singh bangles
watch c/o BCBGMAXAZRIA
Reiss skirt
Proenza Schouler heels
vintage purse

I loved this jacket on you from the second you tried it on at Cathy's apartment. It looks great with those Proenza Schouler heels!

You have such a fine way of putting your clothes together cartoonish and ladylike manage to work well in one stylish outfit!

Elephants, horses, and...are those snakes on your feet? You're like a walking zoo and I love it. But even ignoring my affinity for animal life, I love this outfit. Colors, pleats, good times.

@sarahsreallife LOL! I am kind of a walking zoo!

@Charlotte Most of it's just happy accidents, but I use a Canon EF 50mm f1.4 lens which works well for portraits, too.

Orange and navy looks so GOOD together. It's like... almost nautical. The gold details of those buttons is even better. And the print of that shirt is just too precious. If I could ever steal one person's wardrobe... :)

*siiigh* I love this coat. The red collar is so special and it looks so preppy against the blue of the rest of that jacket. I bet this looks amazing with everything, it would be so cute with jeans!

ftashion said...

I love the colour and cut of the jacket. It has this old school chic. Hee and the elephant prints are just so cute!
