Deals and Details: I bought these awesome shoes at Ross this weekend.  I love the bright graphic print!  Orange and blue are my new favorite color combo and they are complimentary colors, check out my post about complimentary colors here.  I don’t wear a lot of heals being a teacher, but I’ve found that wedges with a slight platform are actually comfortable and help me fight the good fight as far as being short!

I bought these cute earrings at Nordstrom Rack for $6.99.  I love the colors and that they are lightweight.  I read somewhere a long time ago that your earrings should not compete with your necklace or the neckline of your shirt.  I have taken this advice to heart and tend to not wear necklaces with big, bold earrings or keep my earrings/necklaces minimal when I where a statement piece of jewelry.

I am still loving the rose gold watch my husband gave me for Christmas, click here to read more about my watch.  Sad story, my grandmother passed away and these were her bracelets.  She had great style and I was fortunate to get a lot of her awesome costume jewelry.  Gold and enamel jewelry is still trendy this year.  I love bangle bracelets, but I don’t like when people wear 100 bracelets on each wrist, less is more.

I love the combination of colors I wore today, a friend at work commented that I looked like a spring safari and I agree.  I can’t get enough of bright colors or animal prints.  If you are hesitant to try bright colors, don’t be.  Start with one piece – a pair of shoes, scarf, or purse and go from there.  I feel bright, vibrant prints and colors make your look much more interesting than sticking to neutrals and playing it safe.

Enjoy your evening! Stay fabulous and be frugal!
