Daily Outfit, 3/17/11
I decided to mix it up a bit and wear a dress and a blazer instead of a dress and a cardigan. You’re welcome.
|These are the boots I'm wearing today.|
The navy blazer is vintage wool (tag says “The Villager” – thrifted) and the dress is silk (Banana Republic). I also wore a lace-trimmed camisole (Old Navy), navy tights (Nordstrom), my Born Crown riding boots (Nordstrom) and a glass bead bracelet (Mom). I don’t usually wear bracelets to work but for some reason my wrists just looked so bare poking out of the sleeves on this jacket.

Apparently I should have been looking to this dress to determine what I should pair with greige. Navy, rust, orange and bright yellow all appear to go very nicely. Next time, next time. I really should do that more often, refer to my clothes with prints for ideas on pairing colors. And I’d already know it’s a color combination that appeals to me or (presumably) I wouldn’t have bought something with those colors. It would help take some of the guesswork out of it.
Do you all ever do that? Refer to a print for suggestions on pairing colors?
Happy Thursday, Everyone! And Happy St. Patrick's Day! Does anyone have any big plans for tonight?
