Power Outage

Outfit details: Equiplment blouse (in orange here), Zara coat, trousers and shoes, Chanel bag and pin, HRH Collection necklace, Elisha Daniels bracelets

Yesterday was a very odd day in Boston.  A big transformer fire caused all of the Back Bay and part of my South End neighborhood to lose power.  As I type this on Wednesday morning power is back on for thousands of people including me, but there are still thousands more without power.  When I walked home last night down my eerily dark street, I was thankful for the flashlight app on my iphone!  While the power might have been out in Boston, I was bright as ever in a hot pink Equipment blouse paired with red trousers from Zara.  Colorblocking and bright colors, in or out, are always in my repertoire and this was a bit of a repeat of an outfit or two from last spring (here).  I'm looking forward to more brights in celebration of an early and warm spring.

I'm glad you've got power again, it was quite eerie to see Back Bay in darkness! Who would have thought an iphone flash light app would come in handy?

Great outfit Lissy and the longer swept to the side fringe really suits you.

Totally dig this outfit - nice brightness for a wacky dark day in Boston!

It was so scary! It happened as I was closing my store on Newbury. Today I went with a super bright top as well. Think I needed the balance from the blackout! Great colors :)

You look incredible in the red/pink trend! Love how you've paired it with the camel coat. Gah! And your Chanel broach is so gorgeous--I feel like I've said that a bunch of times before. Haha!

So strange to have such a big section of Boston be dark. A friend of mine was in the middle of having a hair cut when it happened. Needless to say part two of the haircut was tentatively scheduled for today. I am happy you are back up with power. So many clearly are not. But your outfit will bring brightness and cheer to anyone despite their electrical status.

I wore a similar pink blouse today. I love how it looks with those pants! Great pairing.
