Winter Brights and the Return of the Flare Jean

I don’t think that it’s any secret that I love bright colors. They just make me feel vibrant, and often give an instant pick-me-up to my mood.  Truly, I thrive on them.  This sweater from the Gap Factory store is the perfect way to mix winter brights into your wardrobe!  I love how the neon coral is paired with the gray, with the gray acting as an anchor color.  That’s why I picked up gray with my shoes, also from Gap Factory.

And former MUDD fans everywhere rejoice, because the flared pant leg is back in style!  I never thought I’d purchase a pair of flare jeans ever again.  Seriously. The last pair I purchased was probably in my 1st year of law school 6 years ago.  But you know what they say about fashion being a cycle–I’ll never forget my mom telling me when I was a teenager that fashion was on about a 7-year rotation (must have to go to med school in the meantime). This pair was a great deal at. . .[drumroll please]. . .Gap Factory!  In case you missed the memo, I love their clothes.

I thought I’d include a couple of shots of my hair too.  If you’re not following Twist Me Pretty, then you should be.  She provides some awesome hair inspiration!
