red vs. orange

On Me: 
Anthropologie jacket

Sometimes I feel like it’s scary to mix such bold colors but I have to remind myself that colors next to each other on the color wheel can easily be matched. Red and orange are right next to each other on the color wheel so in this outfit I took a step towards mix matching the two together. I love this jacket. It’s a little on the military style side but then made feminine by the ruffles and the bow in the back.

Bib necklace

I heard the bib necklace was the new trend so I dug deep into my jewelry closet and found this piece. It was a piece I found at a tribal jewelry store in South Beach, FL about 4 years ago. I have NEVER worn it. I guess I just never knew what to wear it with or how to wear it. Well now that I’ve seen some options of how to wear it I feel better about this piece of jewelry. I guess I always thought it had to go w/ a pretty open neck shirt or dress. A lot of the style options I’ve seen w/ the bib necklaces really have been w/ high necklines. So I thought I’d give it a whirl. I paired this long sleeved tee with the necklace and a floral knee length poofy skirt.

Jane in the jungle...or more like Cancun

Another sunny day in Cancun!

At every opportunity I had on vaca, I had my co-traveler, sister, take all the shots we could in our beach-y wear.

My forever21 hat was my fave this trip. It kept the sun out and kept me feeling so stylish! The important stuff in life, right? Ha!

Here I am, sportin’ my bohemian tunic and my big rimmed hat. On my way to the beach!
