    With legs a mile long, Miss Legs.

    LOVE! A 10!

    Your hair is growing into another great style :)

  • Kari replied 8 years ago

    And it works wonderfully well on you, Amy.

    I love that top! Fuchsia and red are so unexpected and fun.

  • Aida replied 8 years ago

    My kind of outfit! Lovely colors together, and you really rock those wide leg trousers. Are your shoes two-toned?

  • Victoria replied 8 years ago

    Love it! As Kari said, orange and fuschia is really cool together!

  • Jem replied 8 years ago

    Great outfit! You look fab!!

  • sarah replied 8 years ago

    Love it, Amy. Those trouser definitely are YOUR trousers. I'm glad you picked up a couple more pairs at the NAS.

    Lovely and striking! The bright adjacent colours together are a look I adore.

    I'm full of admiration for all of you who style black trousers and skirt so well. I have the toughest time with black and colour. White, yeah --- but so blah unless you have really sculptural tops (a la Dana, say). Colour and black I still haven't fathomed. So why do I keep buying black bottoms, eh?

  • Zapotee replied 8 years ago

    Those pants are amazing. The perfect silhouette. I ove it!

  • Deborah replied 8 years ago

    Beautiful outfit. Love the colors and the silhouette. Was this for a day at the office?

  • Ginkgo replied 8 years ago

    You look amazing in those trousers -- and the rest of it too, of course!

  • Sveta replied 8 years ago

    ...and it was definitely a sight worth seeing!
    Love pairing of this red jacket with magenta patterned blouse and love you in these trousers. Are those two-toned oxfords?

  • Joy replied 8 years ago

    Thank you for showing us how to wear that color jacket with black bottoms!! You look great!

  • Amy replied 8 years ago

    Thanks, ladies!

    Aida & Sveta, Yep, the shoes are my two-toned oxfords.

    Angie, you're right. My hair is growing like crazy. Luckily, I have a good hairstylist who is helping me keep it fun during the grow-out period. I don't think I'm going to go much longer. It's getting close to that "sweet spot" for me.

    Deborah, yes this was for a day at the office.

    Mandipa & Joy, I'm intrigued by your comments about black bottoms. Isn't black a default color that goes with everything? White seems more exotic to me :)

  • jayne replied 8 years ago

    I love all these colors together. And you manage to look super professional at the same time.

  • krishnidoux replied 8 years ago

    I love that look! Proportions are 100% perfect! This picture is exactly why I wish I had a high waist. You look fabulous.

  • Ornella replied 8 years ago

    Oh, I love this. Classic and fun, and you simply look fab in every type of jacket imaginable.

  • Jjsloane replied 8 years ago

    I'd see you coming a mile away due to your gorgeous smile. The outfit is perfect and I echo all the compliments on the pants and how cute your hair looks.

  • JR replied 8 years ago

    Now isn't that a sight to brighten a dreary day! :o)

  • Transcona Shannon replied 8 years ago

    Love the colour mix of that top and the Gap jacket (that reminds me...I have to get the sleeves shortened on my jacket). It's bright and cheery. Love this outfit on you Amy!

  • harmonica replied 8 years ago

    YAY! Love the colours on the top + blazer together. Very bright and happy :-)

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    Perfect outfit! The magenta in the blouse is beautiful and slightly unexpected which makes it so much more interesting. The pants and jacket are both a perfect fit (the red is a great color on you) and the two tone shoes are darling!

  • Kiwichik replied 8 years ago

    I am so looking for a brighly coloured jacket - thanks for the inspiration
