When the Aldo bag takes over

It seems that my Aldo bag has been quite the busy bee of influence here in my closet. To be fair, I had the shoes long before I had the bag, but still.

See, when I got dressed this morning I didn't intend for an all orange outfit. Yet when I left the house I couldn't help but smile: My boyfriend is going to love this! I thought. Why? Well. When Fermin and I first started dating, he was quite opinionated on my style. A little too opinionated, if you know what I mean. Then one day he told me about a favorite outfit he used to wear back in high school: Orange shirt, orange jeans, and suede orange shoes. After that story, I told him he was no longer allowed to criticize. THAT outfit would always be my "get out of jail free" card. Forever. 

Until today.

But see, I tied it off with a neon yellow skinny belt. So I'm okay, right? Right?

Wishing you all a wonderful day!


  1. I just bought a Puma rucksack for the gym. I think it beats your Aldo bag Amber, but I don't think that I can model it as effectively as what you can.

  2. Love the bright orange on you! Orange on ladies = edgy, orange on men = clownish. You still win the fashion games ;)

  5. Great blog - awesome design! Followed!

  6. You are so stunning in this colour! The bag and shoes are amazing.


  7. I love that he wore an all-orange outfit - WITH ORANGE SUEDE SHOES. The best part is that I can honestly see Mr. A wearing something similar. You and I must be drawn to the same type of guy! Mr. A has never been too opinionated on my style, but he will tell me if something looks good or not. It's a good kind of opinionated.
