Mint, Tangerine and Leopard

Hope your Tuesday is going better than mine.
Just one of those days when it seems everything goes awry!!
I wore this last Thursday and that was a good day!
On Thursday's I volunteer at Dress For Success as a stylist.
Last Thursday I had two clients and each was to get a 5 outfit wardrobe to start their new job.
Now that is fun to do in and of itself,
 but this day was even more fun because
 both clients told me that wanted to leave with a wardrobe like what I was wearing.
Feedback like that just puts a spring in your step right!?
I paired these mint green pants with the tangerine top and decided to add the leopard print underneath for a little drama.
I guess it worked!

Are you having a great Tuesday or not so much?
When was the last time someone really complimented you on your outfit?

tangerine sweater-ASOS
leopard top-F21
mint pants-J.Crew
sandals-Edelman
bracelets-Dallas Market/JewelMint
earrings-Handpicked

What a fun job! I'd love to do something like that. Great colors and the leopard is a fun surprise.
Today was pretty crappy for me, too. I'm exhausted & stressed out. Hope yours and my week gets better!
Here's an imaginary pitcher of frozen margarita for you and me! Cheers!

Hmm.... trying to remember the last time I was complimented on my entire outfit. I have been complimented on jewelry, iphone covers, and handbags recently but not an entire outfit. Maybe I have wardrobe work to consider. xo

Really loving this combo Brett - the tangerine and mint look great together, and the pop of leopard is so cute!

How much fun! That sounds like a great way to volunteer. I should look and see if there is a program here. I know one of the churches around here puts on a fashion show every now and then. Maybe I could help with that! I hope today goes much better! Some days are just BLAH. I had one like that on Sunday...

I used to volunteer at Bridge to success, very similar concept to dress for success! It's a great cause and I love the mint and lite orange colours together :)

You always look great in light colors. They mirror your personality.

I never get complimented in real-life, so I have to make do with blog comments. I wish it were otherwise...

The leopard really gives the pastels an edge! Great look!

Wow I wish the wardrobe consultants in my Dress for Success dressed as well as you do! Since I'm the only staff in our branch, I am left doing admin work while the volunteers have all the fun but today I actually got to suit a client- I forgot how much fun it is!
