So if you check out the Color Brigade today your eyes might think they are seeing green. Yes, they might be a little green with envy over how gorgeous those ladies look but I meant literally seeing green! It was obviously the color of the day. While many of these fantastic bloggers dazzled in lime and emerald, I went with a slightly muter olive and gray combination, with a red accent. It is definitely not a color combo that I usually choose, but hey that is what this blog is all about, right? And it gave me the perfect opportunity to debut my new snake-skin Dany's :) For those of you questioning my sanity wearing such a ridiculous heel to work, don't fear: I didn't. These only made an appearance for my sushi date with the bestie for her birthday! She was questioning my sanity for buying them so I had to prove to her how wearable (and fabulous) they truly are!

|I had a long debate with my mirror this morning over the red belt. I loved the pop of color but I just wasn't sure I was feeling it. In the end, the mirror won.|
|What you don't lounge around on your sofas posing for pictures? Oh I guess that is just me :)|
|I was totally in love with this lace back cardigan from the moment I saw it. It is actually a lot harder to work into outfits than I would have imagined, though. I have found a couple of options so far and will just have to keep working on it.|
|My dreams have been Dany-filled for quite some time now and when I saw that they had miraculously gone on sale for under $50, I just had to make them mine. Or I might have to had to make two pairs mine :)|
All in all this outfit is certainly darker than many entries you will see over at cute and little but I think the genius of Color Brigade is that it means something different to us all. And for me, it is all about having fun with different color patterns. Some days they will be bright and wild and other days they might be darker with unique color pairings. Who knows. The mystery of not knowing where my style will go next is one of the many reasons I love blogging. What about blogging keeps you awake at night with excitement dears?
Last but certainly not least, a big birthday shout out to the BEST FRIEND a girl could have! Since I know you read this, I wanted to make sure you know how much I value you in my life. Love you babe and hope you had a wonderful day!
