Mixing red + orange together for fall

I wore this outfit during new faculty orientation week at my new college. I wanted to look pulled-together but also a bit casual. And obviously, I wanted to represent my area, the library, in a positive way!

I started with my red knit dress — a comfortable and more casual choice — and layered my dark denim jacket — also casual — over it. To look more pulled-together and finish off the outfit, I then chose my dark denim peep-toe wedges and my orange patterned scarf.

The red and orange together is also a great combination as we transition to autumn!

The final finishing touch? My reddish orange lip stain, Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in “Adore.”

It’s been awhile since I’ve worn these peep-toe wedges, and I had forgotten how comfortable they are! So cushy, particularly around the peep-toe detail. The Dexter line from Payless never fails to be comfortable.

I wore this outfit the second day of new faculty orientation (here’s what I wore the first day), and I smiled when a new colleague commented, “Oh! I didn’t realize yesterday that you were so tall!” 😀
