Guys: I’m a bit of a bad fashion blogger.

I should be showing you how to transition into fall at this point (which I did a few days ago), but guys: I’m a sucker for bold summer colors, and honestly most of the fall color palette depresses me a bit. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good oxblood and mustard yellow, but nothing compares to a super bright hue. 

Since it’s not Labor Day just yet, I’m wanted to show you vibrant pieces that I’m still rocking now. Ann Taylor let me have a peek at their summer line about a month ago, and the best news? It’s all currently on sale! I opted for this bold orange maxi dress and I’ve been wearing it nonstop this summer. Another piece that’s been in heavy rotation this summer has been these gold leather slides. They match with practically everything, and since we all know it doesn’t even begin to get cold in the Mid-Atlantic until October, they’ll get a lot of use in the next few months!

What colors do you love to wear during the summer?

    I’m pretty sure we all know how to transition into fall at this point.
    I’d much rather see outfits that are still seasonally appropriate rather than sweaters and boots I’m not even going to be thinking about for at least another month!

    So I’m from Tennessee. If you don’t know Orange is a popular color here because of UT Football. It’s so hard to find nice pieces in Orange. This one is a must for me and the 40% discount is an added bonus… Love it
