A bright bolt of color in the orange family satisfied my Halloween spirit, while an oversized boyfriend blazer in the softest knit imaginable added the sophistication needed to bring this dress beyond the bodycon realm.

My boyfriend and I took these photos just before heading out of the house on one of the warmest days yet here in Denver. I wore my new Rock & Republic alicia ankle boots. These had just come in the mail and I could not wait to rip the box open. I snagged them off of RueLaLa for such a low price during a recent sale. Rock & Republic used to make their shoes in Italy, but now they are made in China. I find the quality to still be very good, but the shoes are a little lighter than some of my Italian made ankle boots. The price was right and I think they are so edgy and comfortable. They have a leather cap toe and then more leather around the ankle and the rest is suede. These also come in gray suede. I haven't seen them around anywhere else for the same price I paid, but if you do some google searches these booties are still up for sale. The zipper is a dagger, which I think makes the wedge unique. You should join Rue La La if you haven't done so yet because the final sales are fabulous.
I wore my new wedges with a Spring & Clifton mini skirt. I call this my jailbird skirt. It is short and has black and white stripes and frankly I call it as I see it. Spring & Clifton calls this a rumour mini skirt. I guess we will have to compromise. This was my first Spring & Clifton purchase and the quality is very good. I saw the skirt pop up in the new arrivals section at Revolve Clothing and I am a sucker for a stretchy, body-comforming knit mini skirt so I snagged it immediately. Stripes are always in and especially for summer. The skirt is pretty thick and well-made so I will be watching for more things from Spring & Clifton in the future.
I wore the jailbird striped skirt with an LnA swing tank that Karina from Tea Leaf Clothing sent me. This tank is best paired with a form-fitting bottom to really accentuate the hemline. I really liked how it looked with the striped mini. It is a basic top to have in your closet for summer and the jersey material is very soft against the skin. For jewelry, I wore a vintage stone bracelet that hasn't come off my wrist all week and a CEEK jewelry hamsa diamond necklace in gold.
