Jacket: Club Monaco (on sale!). Dress: Ann Taylor. Necklace: (similar on Etsy). Sunglasses: Gucci. Shoes: Kate Spade (similar in lace). Handbag: Chanel.

 

I love the bright, bold colour of this dress, but my first instinct was to pair it with other colours (as I did here and here).  I definitely didn’t picture wearing it with black, however, I quite like the combo.  Lesson learned. . . make sure to experiment with colour pairings, even if I think they won’t work.

 

Also, you may notice the leaves on the ground in these photos.  Crazy!  It feels like summer just started, and the leaves are already starting to change colour and fall.  My fingers are crossed for an Indian Summer this year.

 

I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!

    I love how you tone down the neon with basic black, which keeps it from feeling too-summery this late in the season

      Thanks so much Rose! Haha, I’m definitely not over summer outfits yet. My theory is as long as the weather is warm, I’m dressing like summer! 🙂

      Hahaha, thanks Sarah! I agree, I don’t tend to wear black shoes that often in the summer, so these will be back in full force for the Fall. 🙂

    When I saw the shoes and leaves on Instagram I nearly cried. I had to check out the blog to see just how many leaves were already falling in Toronto. Makes me sad- summer is now over 🙁

    Love the color combo here. I immediately thought black would look great with this dress when I stumbled upon it in Ann Taylor!) Good choice!

    Looking lovely as usual Jenny 🙂 I am so bummed I missed out on these heels. I ordered a similar pair from Victoria Secrets earlier this month and was so disappointed with the quality that I end up returning them.

    You are always so glamorous, I love it!! I know you hear it all the time, but you seriously have amazing style 🙂

    P.S. I can’t believe the leaves are already falling there! I live by the coast and the weather pretty much stays the same (foggy one day, sunny & windy the next) and one thing I really miss is having seasons that noticeably change.

    I love this color combo! I’m so happy you decided to try it out. Everything is working so perfectly together!

    And I can’t believe it’s starting to turn fall there already!

    Theres leaves on the ground here too and it’s 90 degrees. I love the subtle pattern mixing with the stripes and dots!

    I’m so glad I found this! I bought a chartreuse skirt from Ann Taylor and for the life of me, I couldn’t find anything to wear with it. All this time, I had a B/W striped cardi sitting in my closet that would go perfectly
