Fun in the Sun

I think when you live in California, especially L.A., it's mandatory that you own at least a few things that feature palm trees. Since palm trees are so iconic in the state in which I live, I naturally gravitated to this fun J. Crew Tippi sweater with its cheerful sun and palm tree illustration. One thing that many of the people who reviewed this item online noted, and to which I can attest as well, is that it appears in person to be much brighter than in pictures. In fact, my husband asked if I was going hunting in this, since its neon orange color does evoke the image of some hunting gear that you might find in your local sporting goods store!

The weather here in Los Angeles has been all over the place as of late. Some days are overcast and cool while others, like the day these pictures were taken, foreshadow the hot, bright summer months ahead where there's not a cloud to be found in the sky. To go along with the bright, sunny day, I paired my outfit with some equally bright accessories, such as my new yellow suede pom pom shoes, turquoise sunglasses, and colorful tassel bag. So while I may not be on a hunting expedition, as you can see, I am constantly on the hunt for bright, colorful accessories!
