I love warm weather because it convinces me to get bold with color. Not to say that I don't wear color during other parts of the year, but the sun really gives you some nerve. So when I spotted this bright peach short set at JCPenney, I was up for the challenge.

As my style has grown, I gravitate towards neutrals. They're easier to make look sophisticated. However, that's especially why I liked this Belle Sky jacket and shorts. The fit is great and paired with striped tee, it created a balance. The same reason I went with white pumps. This is a fun look for happy hour or even a dinner date. And if the situation permits, an after 5 work function (especially in the creative field). The shorts are above the knee, but because it's not tight, it comes off appropriate. 

I'm a creature of habit, so I stuck with gold accessories - watch and necklace - and neutral sunnies. The focus of this look with the color - if you saw this in person, I think you'd agree.
