How do you wear a sunset?

It's Friday and that means Sean returns home tonight, yippee! I have cooked him his favorite dinner, short ribs over polenta, they are cooking away in the slow cooker today (yup used it again). And we get to smooch and smooch and hang out all night and all weekend minus Sunday night when I am going with a friend to the Colbie Caillat/Gavin DeGraw concert.
I love sunsets which was the theme for this week's Friday's Fancies. They are a beautiful part of the day, and all next week I will be viewing gorgeous sunsets.
To re-create a sunset in an outfit was an interesting challenge but I hope you see somewhat of a sunset in my outfit.

With Sean being gone all week, I didn't have any to take photos of me wearing my outfits. I did hang out with a few friends but I felt weird asking them can you take my picture while I pose or twirl around or just act silly for the camera?
I did the next best thing I could, I laid out my outfits that I wore this past work week and snapped photos for you.
Hope you appreciate my attempts to give provide outfits sans a photographer.

This top is the polka dot chambray top from ON I featured on Tuesday. True story: I went to my local ON and they were all out of my size but I saw the shirt on a mannequin, I grabbed the tag and it was my size. I quickly flagged a sales associate down to take the shirt off the mannequin before someone else snatched it from underneath me.
 Regular chambray shirt, no polka dots.
 Come on, I am not the type to wear the same shirt two days in a row.

And my favorite colored denim right now, red.

I realized too that I am really into the royal blue, white and black palette lately. Look!

Have a great weekend all!

I love that maxi dress - very summery.

Cute outfits! Love the polka dot chambray shirt. I asked a sales associate to take a shirt off a mannequin once for me (cuz it was the only one left in my size) and she said she couldn't! I actually wanted to buy it and she wouldn't take it off the mannequin! Anyway, thanks for stopping by my blog! :-)
