Orange Crush

Rebecca Minkoff bag, dress c/o StylePiques, blazer c/o Spank Clothing,
Sam Edelman booties, ring c/o Social Experiment,
ring c/o Anjolee, Club Monaco bracelet

As far as colours go, there is no happier colour than orange. Given that it was a happy, sun-filled day, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to break out a happy, orange-hued outfit! I slept for 14 hours the night before (I guess I’ve been really tired??), went to Burgoo with Matt for the most amazing grilled cheese sandwiches ever and walked around the docks of Lonsdale Quay. All in all, a great day and a very-needed relief from the school grind.

Since the lovely people at Anjolee sent me these beautiful petal stud earrings, I’ve been wearing them nearly every day. Anjolee is pretty unique in that customers can customize pieces (such as their other earring offers, including but not limited to stud earrings, diamond earrings and hoop earrings) to their own taste and price level.
I am embarking on my last week of duty before getting my break next week! Can’t wait to go to my cabin and just relax the entire time. Hope you all have a wonderful Monday (if such a thing is possible)! To Vogue or Bust

    Oh lovely, you are the only girl I know who could dress in head-to-toe orange and still look so stylish! Apart from our shared CM skirt, I don't own a single piece of orange and don't anticipate I'm likey to anytime soon. But the colour suits you just perfectly! Such a lovely outfit for a date at Burgoo… You have me craving their mac & cheese now 🙂 Hope you week is off to a better start than the last one!

    You look lovely, I really love the way you style your bangs, is there any secret to it or are you just a natural beauty?

    Great outfit. I love this shade of orange. Definitely subtle and not overpowering.

    Ah orange! The national color of the Netherlands 😉 Usually not a big fan of this color because of that (Dutch orange overload), but this outfit you're wearing definitely changed my mind. The orange looks great on you, especially with the neutrals and the pop of green.
