I wore this to meet a colleague at a cafe. The moment I walked in, a gent who looked like George Carlin and sounded like Sam Elliott said, “Well, that is just a lovely ensemble.” WIN.

Sometime over the summer, I saw a photo of a celeb in a mustard cardigan and cobalt maxi dress. I feel like it might’ve been Jessica Alba. Adding the burgundy/garnet accessories and shoes was my idea. It didn’t dawn on me until late in the day that I’d assembled a red, yellow, and blue outfit … although these are certainly alternate versions of the traditional primaries!

    Those boots are the yummiest color. I love primary looks, but never thought about doing them in different tones! Great idea.

    I almost gasped when I first saw the picture, I like this so much. However, on my screen the sweater really looks tangerine (though less so in the second photo). Either way, it’s awesome.

    Wow, what a fantastic dress on you, Sal! I’m not surprised at all that you got a compliment from a stranger.

    You look great and so does that tree in the background! Alas, most of our pretty leaves are on the ground now…

    Slam dunk, Sal. I really like you in bold jewelry – the earrings are great with your sleek short hair.
