at your fingertips.

here i am, back to black.
i've limited myself to only colorful purchases this year, so
where have all the colors gone?
seems most of my colorful things are either (hot) outerwear, or super casual tank tops. i have a void in the middle that must be filled. until then, i'll keep the colors at my fingertips. 

i've worn this top open as intended here, but i love it much better pinned and tucked in like a blouse.

does this mean i should shop?
(top, f21; shorts, express or similar here; boots, asos)

  11. You can wear shorts to work? That is awesome. Oh, I so wanted to see a full shot of those georgous boots they look very cool.
    Nice clutch too. Cool nail polishes! I want to try the multi colored trend very soon as well.

  13. What a great look, so simple and chic. I think the colors you do have from your nails and accessories make up for the "lack" of color in your clothing. =)

  14. I'm trying to wear more colour as well, but this monochrome look is lovely! The blouse is really gorgeous xo

  20. Oh my gosh. I love it pinned and tucked. Ha ha that sounded like I was referencing lipo :) I can't believe what a difference that makes to the cardigan. I adore it with those shorts and booties. I can't even get into the basket weave clutch. I just love everything about this outfit. If you had a "like" or a "hype" button I would totally press it :)

  49. Although it may not be as colorful as you'd like, it is personally one of my favorite outfits of yours! I think the proportions are simply perfect, the colorful nails are stunning, and the oversized clutch is just the cherry on top. Beautiful.

  52. Hey girl! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I was scrolling through you page and saw this amazing outfit and had to comment on it! Love the printed top and the satin shorts! Looks like an outfit I'd wear myself. In fact, I remember seeing this top at F21 and kicking myself after wards for not buying it! I love the clutch and the mismatched nails too!


    Stop by soon! xoxo!
