A year or 2 ago I would never have worn a bright pink sweater with bright orange pants. But I adore this color combination and after seeing it so much in fashion magazines as well as blogs, I thought I would try my hand at bright color blocking. This outfit is so me, which is why I was happy with it.

The weekend has been packed with activities, all involving this boy, one of my besties from high school. He and his partner came down from NYC so he could run the Houston half-marathon. He did a fabulous job and finished in under 2 hours! Needless to say, our regular routine has been interupted and we will be trying to get back on track this week. But spending quality time with him was worth it!

I LOVE this so much! I love the pink and orange combo. I really need a pair of bright skinnies. (I don't how many times I've typed that statement in the last 6 months.) Ugh! Jeans are hard to find! Anyway, Love it!

I think those bright orange pants would look cute with just about anything!
