Red & Purple











blazer/blouse-Gap (more options here and sort of similar here), trousers-J.Crew(similar here), heels-Zara(similar here) necklace-H&M(sort of similar here)

Everything in this outfit is AT LEAST a year old, if not older and trying to find similar items for the links above was bit more tedious then usual. There is definitely a dearth of bright colors in the current retail landscape. After a quick scroll through New Arrivals at H&M, Gap, and Zara things are lookong a bit drab. Is that harsh? I enjoy olive green and navy just as much as the next outfitter - even in the same outfit like here - but really, where has all the color gone? I guess it's all here in this outfit, because I'm loving this red and purple color combo. The shoes are maybe a bit too matchy, but I couldn't resist. And the blazer's neon trim gave the overall look a bit more zing!

So what do we think, keep the colors bright, or let's stay in the neutral zone for fall?
