Color Crush - Friday Fashions

*Both giveaways close today, the earrings and necklace!
Friday is here!! I couldn't be more excited because tomorrow my Sean and I are officially celebrating my birthday. He has surprises that is all I know! He is good at keeping the surprises where as I on the other hand, tend to be very loosed lips especially when it comes to planning something I know he will love. Hey, opposites attract right? Anyways I will definitely do a post letting you know what we did over the weekend and what he had up his sleeves. 
For this week's Friday's Fancies over at Long Distance Loving, it is color crush.
Now I seem to go through phases on color crushes, a color like red for example I used to never ever buy anything in red, I stayed away from it. Nowadays, I steer towards it. Now my closet is one huge firetruck engine in my color with all the red, but you get the idea, I go through phases. For the color crush, I picked two that I am really loving together. I tend to colors crushes on two colors at a time that really complement each other. Right now it is mint, and a dark red/almost burnt red/orange color.
For this week's Friday Fancies, this is what I selected.

What do you think??

And for your viewing pleasure a few outfits of my own. I realized by taking these photos, I am wearing less and less pants to work. Now the dresses and skirts are in! Especially these two skirts I picked up recently from Downeast Basics, the cream chiffon skirt in the first outfit (swoon, I love the way the material flows) and the picante-colored skirt. I like saying the color because it is so fun, picante, picante!
The black shirt is from Target a few years ago and my favorite piece of jewelry, the necklace from Silpada that my mother in law got for my birthday! Thank you Sharon.
Yes I realized I just switched the skirts between the two outfits but when you find a great thing don't let it go! I have great plans for the picante skirt, a chambray top, a white top, the creative juices are flowing!
Here is another outfit.
And do you want to see my favorite favorite outfit? I love this Target dress, it is so colorful!
Have a great weekend blogger friends!
