One of the reasons I started this blog was because of outfits like this! I love bright colors and fun prints. And when they match perfectly, why not pair them together? Happy Monday all!
This outfit was entirely inspired by J. Crew Factory’s website. I fell in love with the top right away and loved how they used a herringbone print pant to add more texture to the outfit. The pants in the inspiration photo are a wool texture and straight leg. While I would love those back in the midwest, it was easy for me to pull a similar look off with ankle pants I already have in my closet to suit Florida weather. I also used burgundy-tone flats (albeit a little light colored), but was really happy with the result. This is probably one of my favorite work outfits this season!
This skirt makes me feel a little Haloweeny, but you know I’m a sucker for bright and fun colors. 🙂 I really had no idea what to pair it with, so I started with the oh-so-neutral chambray top. Instyle Magazine says this color of orange pairs well with olive, cornflower (think light blue), and a light pink. I’m not entirely convinced, but you might see me try a little olive matching in the future. Think outside the box, right?
Whew – what a busy week so far! Sorry for the lack of posts the last few days! The in-laws were in town since last weekend house hunting combined with a day long training event yesterday and today I started my new big-girl job as a pharmacist! It was slightly terrifying, but I think after a couple of days I will feel more confident I’m not going to kill anyone. 🙂 #NotOnLiveTelevision
Today’s outfit was a little more simple, but I was excited to finally get a chance to wear one of the new tops I picked up at Nordstrom during their Anniversary Sale a couple of weeks ago. I’ve come to really like the Pleione brand, especially since the few tops I’ve picked up are nice enough to wear to work, but a material I can certainly wear with jeans and dress down. And, if you are patient, they always go on sale. 🙂
I loved the idea of this skirt with the bright colors and midi length that makes it different from my go-to pencil skirt. However, normally a midi skirt is perfect for those 5’10”, long torso, lean body type (you know who you are… we love you but hate you. 🙂 ) I’m unfortunately quite the opposite body type being only 5’3″ and carry most of my weight around the middle. I ordered this one online and I was pleasantly surprised with the way it looks. It does add a little to my hips because there are pockets (but I love skirts with pockets, so I’ll consider it a “good” thing!) and overall I’m really happy with the skirt – excited to try and pair different color options with all those stripes!
