Turquoise Jeans + Color Block Scarf

Colored Denim + Color Blocking = Two Trends that Work Great Together

These brightly colored jeans have inspired me to add more color into my mostly neutral wardrobe. The two trends work together because they are balanced out by the solid neutral tee, cardigan and shoes.  When I threw this outfit on this morning, my hubby really liked it so it gets to be featured today.

I’ve been dying to wear scarves again.  Fall has finally arrived in Texas.  Want to know how we know when it’s fall here?  When the temp drops 40 degrees in one day!  Yes, that really happened.  Brr…

[Jeans: Loft, T-shirt: Forever 21, Cardigan: Old Navy, Scarf: Target, Loafers: Target, Belt: Target]

My favorite neutral accessory is our family’s real super-model Bailey the Golden Retriever.  She goes with everything, don’t ya think?
