what i wore: {tangarine tango, turquoise & gray}

It's been a few weeks since I've done a what I wore post. We've been traveling so much over the last month and this is just the beginning of a summer long road trip.

Between Rhode Island and Las Vegas the hubby and I managed to find a few days to enjoy some time at home. One of the days we had a late lunch with Scott's old Officer In Charge {OIC} aka his old boss. It was great to be able to sit down with him, his wife and few of the officers from his old command to pick their brains and get some advice.

I wanted to be sure I looked put together, but not stuffy; not too young and yet not too old. This is the look I came up with and I love it. I think it will be a great go to look when ever I need to accompany Scott to events this summer. 

I'm pretty much obsessed with the color orange this summer, whether you call it tangerine tango, coral or just plain orange, I am smitten.

I love that this Francesca's  dress pairs the bold orange with a muted gray. Since I am a lover of plenty of bold colors I paired my new H&M turquoise necklace with this dress for an added pop of color!{I scored this J.Crew knock off for only $12.95!}

I spent a good 15 minutes trying to find the right belt to show off my waist. After 7 failed attempts I noticed this scarf sitting on my closet floor. It was the perfect color combo and gave the dress a bit more pattern and fun.

To make this look a bit more polished I added this thrifted cropped H&M jacket.

Finally, I tied the entire look together with this amazingly versatile clutch from Fashion to Figure.  This clutch comes with a removal strap so you can turn it into a purse or a cross body bag. Perfect to transition from day to evening and also a great bold color for summer that will transition well into fall. It holds a plethora of items without looking bulky. I carried around my sunnies, a wristlet/wallet, lipstick, chapstick, phone and still had plenty of room to carry a point and shoot camera and a little notepad if I wanted.

OMG...I love, love, love this! Everything is perfect the clutch, the blazer, the dress, the necklace, the shoes. I want one of each! And I want more tangerine in my closet. The color doesn't look great on my skin tone but a clutch and shoes would be a great way to incorporate it into my wardrobe!
