I've always believed that dressing up can make even the most ordinary days feel more special. Today was just another one of those ordinary late summer afternoons. I spent the day running errands and having lunch with my mom, grandma, and brother. Afterwards, I went over to Luke's house and we ended up being lazy together, just watching the Angels beat the A's on TV. To be honest, I probably could have gotten away with just wearing a tank top and his basketball shorts - which I have at least two pairs of at home. Instead, I decided to wear this unique bright pink top and my favorite little black shorts.
I found this fabulous pink top on sale at Anthropologie. (SCORE!) I love love love the twisted v-neckline and how this neat little detail is repeated with the twisted waistband. I am especially fond of the color. Even though it looks neon in these photos, this top is actually more of a raspberry pink color in real life.
Do you like how I paired this super bright outfit with a pale pastel pink bag? It was totally unintentional. I took longer than I intended doing my makeup and I didn't have time to transfer my wallet, phone, and other necessities into another purse. You know what though? I really liked how these two colors looked together. Here's another example of how great bright and pastel colors can look together.
This photo is another one of those "happy accidents." I tried to take a picture of my Juicy Couture charm bracelet, but it ended up completely out of focus. Instead, all of the focus was on my neckline (and a bit of boobage, haha). I love how this photo ended up highlighting my favorite part of this top.
