Color Burst

Hi beautiful people! Happy Sunday to you all and hope you had a nice one.  It's hard to believe summer is almost over and fall is around the corner, which brings us closer to winter, my least favorite of all.
Today was a very active Sunday. My church adopted a school this year and this summer, they organized a reading program for the children to complete their assigned summer reading. The program allowed the children to come into a quiet environment with mentorship to read and learn and also gave them access to equipments that they would otherwise not have available to them. Today was the graduation ceremony for the kids who completed their readings as well as the back to school backpack give away. The church threw them a block party with bouncy castle, flavored ice, cotton candy, face painters, loads of delicious food and much more.
It was a great day for the children and you can tell they were very proud of their achievements when receiving their certificate of completion as well as medals for perfect attendance and completing readings beyond the assigned one. Old people were not exclude from the fun either as I indulged myself in some cotton candy. Like I told someone sweet makes the heart happy.
The title of this post is a good representation of this dress. The dress is literally bursting of colors, the pictures do not do it justice. There's already so much color infused in the dress that I thought why not pile on more, so I added the red jacket. I chose neutral colored shoes to balance out the look so I don't  look like a starburst packet walking down the street. I hope I can get a couple more wear out of this dress before summer raps up, who knows if I'll  fit in the dress again come next summer.

Dress: Asos, Jacket: HM, Shoes: Jessica Simpson, Bag: Steve Madden, Bracelets: Cara couture

  1. I know you said the dress has many colors, but it looks more like an orange dress from my end. The purse and shoes go so well together that I thought they came together.

    Have a great week!

    1. Haha...that's why I said the picture doesn't do it justice. The dress is actually a combination of red, orange and yellow, but from afar looks like an orange dress.
