So here was the look for today:
I built this outfit around the shoes, which I got a few weeks ago and hadn’t had a chance to wear. Last night, I realized that I had a top that was almost exactly the same color, and so the idea for the outfit was born. I realize that I play it pretty safe in terms of colors and patterns, but that’s one of the things I’m hoping to gain from this blog: the ability to play with fun prints and hues and not look like a clown. Thankfully, there are many stylish ladies out there who blog about their fashion adventures, and I’m learning.
I haven’t been taking photographs of my handbags in my work outfit posts, but I probably should. When I’m at work, my bag just sits under my desk all day and doesn’t really function as a part of my ensemble. In fact, I don’t put much thought into my bag selection when I’m going to work. However, for the past couple days I’ve been carrying this laptop bag, and I thought I’d include it in my accessories picture. I like the red with the teal!
My accessories were very much in keeping with the gray/black/teal theme of my outfit.
Here’s the lowdown:
- Top, Charlotte Russe
- Sweater, TJ Maxx
- Skirt, New York & Co.
- Tights, Old Navy
- Shoes, Gabriel Brothers
- Bag, Target
- Bangles, gift from Caroline
- Necklace, Target
- Silver ring, Charlotte Russe
- London blue topaz ring, Ebay (elements bought separately, then put together by me)
- Pearl earrings, gift from my stepdad
So that’s it! Have a fabulous evening (you know, assuming you live in/around my time zone)!
