What I Wore: Finals Week Chic Top (Modcloth), White Tank (Forever 21), Skirt (Ashley of Southern California Belle via Flock Together), Necklace (Popbasic), Shoes (Montana Vintage)

Yeah, this is probably my favorite photo-shoot in awhile (though with The Boy's photos, I always think he does a bang-up job...). It is a bit out of the ordinary  Not sweeping vistas or snowcapped mountains. It is actually a wall of the Cody Nite Rodeo's ticket booth, which is closed for the long winter season. But, the thing is- February's grey. Sure, there's Valentine's and all the mixed emotions that seems to bring out in people, but really, for such a short month, it can seem very long. These bold colors shake me up and get me excited.  Canary Yellow? Metallic Gold? Deep Magenta? Cobalt Blue? Yes, yes, yes and yes. All in one look- you betcha!

 You've seen me styling this pencil skirt before here, and maybe you have seen the skirt on Ashley of Southern California Belle. She lent it to me via the collective blog Flock Together. This is a more work-appropriate look (though I did switch out the shoes when I was teaching the other day. Peep-toes during recess duty did not sound like the best of ideas, especially when the shoe is vintage!), but there is still some pizazz to it, giving me a bounce in my step!

Speaking of Flock Together- we've got some very exciting changes coming up in March. I don't want to spoil all the surprises, but expect to see some new features and even some new faces- including, possibly, yours! If you haven't submitted anything for our Reader's remix, but are interested; go for it! And don't forget to follow Flock Together on Twitter and Facebook to stay up on all the news.

  10. Oh my goodness, I love everything about this. Ashley's skirt looks awesome on you and it works perfectly with the polka dot top. The pictures really are fantastic too. P.S. I like that your top and the dress and the dress I was wearing on the blog yesterday look like they were cut from the same fabric :)

  18. Ahh love the bright colors of course! The wall with your outfit is amazing even if its not the typical mountain scene (hey we mountain bloggers can't look like we're in The Sound of Music ALL the time right?!)
    The polka dot top is amazing, hope you're having a great day!

  19. Can I steal this entire outfit? I love all the bright colors and the polka dots (you can never have too many polka dots). And it's always nice to have a change of scenery from time to time!

    Can't wait to see what Flock Together has in store for March! ;)

  22. What, you just found a wall that matches the colors in your outfit?! That is awesome. This is totally wonderful-the top is such a great color and of course I love the flowy fabric. Plus, your shoes definitely have me swooning-I love how strappy they are.
