My Style Challenge: Flaming June

I'm pretty sure I'm about to catch on fire any second now, it's that hot out here in DC! It makes me think of my most favorite painting of all time, Flaming June:

I wanted to take inspiration from the piece, but had to get fancy dressed up for a special off-site with corporate partners, I ended up looking like this:
Yay, two of my favorite colors together - a papaya tangerine and a vibrant red!! A silky tee and pencil skirt is a great base, but pulling in a polished white blazer as a neutral "completion piece" and some ever so important accents really take an ensemble to that special bloggy place.
I'm wearing: Vince tee, Gap pencil skirt, Lush blazer from Nasty Gal, red Zara pumps, purse a gift from my mom, aviators from Anthropologie, belt from ModCloth. Jewelry includes C. Wonder necklace, Streets Ahead tiger stripe bangle from CUSP, black Forever 21 cocktail ring, stacking rings from Banana Republic and Madewell, rose gold Tina Tang wedding band.
Forget arm parties, it's all about having a ring soiree, yes?? Actually, it's really all about chain necklaces, I need to find a few to share with all of you!!
One thing's for sure... it's getting hot in here!
