I told you I was in love with colour right now! Turns out most of my closet is pretty blah when it comes to colour, so I took the two brightest colours and wore them together. That's how you guys pick your outfits too right?

So, fun story, this morning I woke up in such a good mood. I was bright and shiny Melissa. THEN my cell phone rang. The voice on the other end told me that my car (which is in the shop for "routine maintenance") needs some brake work done that is going to cost me $500. You can't tell see me but right now I'm making a sad face. Lesson learned: Don't answer my cell phone.

I have to go pick up my car now (sad face) but before I leave, I just want to thank all of you who didn't abandon me during my I'm-too-sick-to-post-outfit-pictures hiatus. And to show you my appreciation... here is a biiiiiig kiss!

Don't worry, I'm not contagious anymore. ;)


  1. Aww smooches!! Really super love the bright colors with the b&w and pastel/nude pumps. So unexpected!

  2. Haha, glad to see you back Melissa! You posts always make me smile. Sorry to hear about your expensive car problem-- always sucks to hear. Good that you have finally gotten better though and can enjoy some of this sunshine that we're finally getting!

    Happy Wednesday girl!

  3. wow! they better replace your brakes with diamonds :) love your outfit too!


  4. aww boo to the car! sometimes I swear mechanics charge more because you don't know what's involved in fixing a car :(

  5. Ugh that sucks!

    If you signed an estimate that was less than $500 they have to honor that! I think... anyway don't back down without a fight! You could kick them with your pointy heels?

  6. That has to be one of my fave scarves from ModCloth..I only wish I got that one too with the Pumpkin one!
    I hate car troubles...I too had my share of them this week with a pretty horrific bill at the end.
    off by heart style

  7. Glad you're feeling better! And your bright colours look great!

    Style of a tootsy pop

  8. Beautiful outfit! I have been dying for nude heels, yours are perfect.
    PS: I am so lucky my dad taught me how to do most of the work on my car. It has has saved me so much money over the years!

  9. Aww no! Cars are big fat money suckers. Urgh. On the bright side (quite literally) this outfit is adorable and you are gorgeous as always. I'm glad you're better!

  10. um, um, um!!! GIRLFRIEND! I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEE THIS OUTFIT!! So something I would never ever think to put together, but it's ridiculously cute. The scarf which I've been obsessed with since you first wore it, that blue color, the stripes (DIE) and the NUDE heels!!!!! If i could steal this outfit out of your closet, I would.

  11. Love the color combo!! You look great!

    Sorry to hear about the car troubles. Hopefully it will run in perfect condition for a really, really long time!

  12. ahh such cute colors! I love your scarf so much! I just started my first blog yesterday. If you could find time to check it out I would be so happyy! =)

  15. Your scarf! It looks freaking amazing! The combination of the shirt with the scarf and the bright cardigan and your bag (okay so pretty much the entire outfit) makes me giddy.

  16. Great sweater, I love that you put it with this outfit!

    That is horrible about your car, unexpected expenses are the worst.


  17. Welcome back to the blogging world! Love the bright shades, that's been a goal of mine too, to incorporate more colour :) & Ugh, I never answer my phone until after noon... and after I've woken myself up with a coffee or two!
