​talbots blazer {thread-upped}
ab studio chiffon dress   ·   lela rose for payless heels

welcome to day 3 of the patnone-inspired fall color challenge marissa & i have been hosting this week!  today through friday we'll add our links here at my blog.  check out day 1 and day 2 at marissa's blog - the link ups for both are still open if you are a little behind but still want to participate!

today's color is koi, a subdued orange.  although i love the two orange dresses (1 & 2) i own and have a couple blouses that are orange, i was most looking forward to wearing this talbots blazer i received in a recent threadup order (click here to join through my referral link and receive $10 off your first purchase!).  i placed the order before marissa & i had finalized our plans for this challenge, so i was pleasantly surprised when it arrived last week and i realized it was a perfect koi orange!  what wasn't so great was the sizing - bigger, boxier, and longer than i prefer my blazers to be.  i'm pretty stubborn about returning items i purchase online unless i can do so in a B&M store, so i decided just to keep it even though i'm not satisfied with the fit.

while i continue to ponder the fate of this koi-colored blazer, link up below and show me how you're wearing this shade of orange this fall.  and feel free to leave me a comment with any advice!

get the look:  similar blazer / similar belt / exact dress / similar heels

literate & stylish
