I'd known since I bought the jacket that I'd be wearing it with the matchy shoes, at least for its first outing.
I had my olive green joggers set aside to wear with something else, but I'd looted that potential outfit for one of its elements (I often do that) and the pants were just sitting there beside this new-to-me neon orange jacket.
Well, hey, I like these colours together. Let's roll with it.
I just had to find a top to meld the olive and neon orange together. Enter, the accordion top.
I definitely felt cool in this.
Masked up - I went with dark turquoise to match my accessories.
- Mask - by Mom
These shoes are incredibly comfy. I always match them to something else neon orange in my outfit.
Since the hardware on the jacket is copper, I wore some of my vintage pieces.
- Copper/enamel cuff - Matisse by Renoir, vintage 60s, vintage expo
- Copper/enamel earrings - Matisse by Renoir, vintage 60s, Grandma J's
- Copper/turquoise ring - vintage, Grandma J's
- Silver/turquoise ring - Glee
- Brass cuff - Myka, consignment; purchased here for $16.00
The new-to-me brass cuff matched really well with the olive green joggers. And there we go - one very matchy outfit! Perfect for a Monday.
I love the olive with the neon orange, what a great combination! I'm drooling over the copper jewellery, I bet Grandma J was a stylish lady! xxxReplyDelete
I really liked this colour combo, Vix - and I always love to wear my copper jewelry. She was, she was a great role model.Delete
The color orange is perfect for (what is here a very grey) Monday! Definitely a kick a** outfit! I appreciate your turquoise jewelry, especially paired with copper but just as vibrant with silver.ReplyDelete
And I am still swooning over your Sundance dress. I did a search this morning, found the Sundance store site, and spent a chunk of time browsing. Enjoyed the look about, very much like that many of their clothing pieces have COLOR (hard for me to find tops and dresses locally that are colorful). It was a satisfying 10 vicarious minutes. ;)
It's such a bright neon orange, Laurie - these pics don't do it justice. I love the pops of turquoise too.Delete
Thank you so much! Oh, how cool - they have some amazing dresses on their site.
I like the orange and over together and I really like how the top ties this all together! my last minute outfits never look this stylish!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Mica! When I fall back on a formula like "bookends" it definitely makes planning easier!Delete
Turquoise and orange! Never would have thought how well they pair.ReplyDelete
My husband's favourite sports team (the Miami Dolphins) does these colours - it's not that unusual. :)Delete
You're the only person I know with orange shoes!ReplyDelete
People really need to branch out! Orange shoes for all!Delete
I have to get used to putting together outfits for the week again, as I'm completely rubbish inventing one on the spot first thing in the morning. I have to say you did quite well, and bookending your outfit in neon orange was a brilliant idea. I love the olive and orange together, I never would have thought to combine these colours! Your copper bling is amazing too! A fabulous outfit to kickstart the week! xxx P.S. Keeping my fingers crossed for your second jab today!ReplyDelete
I don't often do outfits in the morning, Ann (even this one was right before bedtime), as I need to spend that time and practice my self-care in my closet.Delete
Thank you so much! I loved these colours together. The jab went well. :)
What a perfect colour combinations. I love those trousers, very cool.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Nancy!Delete
I like it! It's edgy.ReplyDelete
Love how you paired your orange blazer with orange shoes. Such a fabulous styling!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Ivana!Delete
I like the book-ended orange, and the colour looks great with those olive pants. Cool outfit!ReplyDelete
I really liked this look too - these colours are awesome together. Thanks, Shelley!Delete
This is an amazingly cool look, my friend! I am loving the orange bookend formula and your silky joggers are just so, so good!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Shelbee! It's such a fun combo!Delete
Huge fan of bookending here, too. I especially love taking the classic route of hat and/or handbag and shoes, but am always up for other forms of bookending, too, as I am a perpetual lover of well coordinated ensembles.ReplyDelete

It's a nice easy way to make an outfit cohesive, isn't it, Autumn?Delete
Trust you to have shoes in this colour haha.ReplyDelete
You would have been more shocked if I didn't have shoes this colour!Delete
