     Blue and orange is such a fun color combonation, and was perfect for me to wear on the warmest day this week! I bought this cardigan last month at Kohl's and this is the first time that I've worn it. Isn't the back gorgeous?! You can't really tell from this picture but the material for the floral back is actually a softer and more delicate fabric. As y'all (should) know I'm obsessed with anything floral, so this was a must have for me! Another way that I can't wait to wear it is with a black pencil skirt for church or a business casual occasion. 
     I don't usually wear bootcut jeans. If you read a lot of my fashion posts then you know that I'm usually to be found in skinny jeans. I wanted a bit of a darker washed jean though to offset the bright sweater so I went with my favorite pair of American Eagle bootcut jeans. Most of my jeans are from American Eagle. They have a style, wash and size to please everyone! I decided to add a little bit of neutral sparkle in with these pretty tan wedges. They're actually very comfortable to walk in! I love wearing heels and would wear them more if most didn't hurt my heet so much on my long walks to classes, so it's always exciting for me to find some that don't make my feet miserable. I found these at the end of the season at a Discount Dillard's last year, and I got a great deal on them!
     The blue in my earrings matched the blue in my sweater and nails and the gold in them matched the gold trip on my shoes, so these were a must wear! Target usually has some adorable statement earrings like these for fairly cheap, so I reccomend looking there if you want some big and bold earrings. I stuck with the blue theme with some simple bracelets. The base color for my nail polish is actually a solid and deep royal blue and the sparkly color is a forest green, but combined they create the perfect teal look!
