Outfit Of The Day- Orange Tweed
Outfit Of The Day:
I was lucky enough to score almost everything in the outfit at a massively discounted price. I'm a bargain shopper but I have expensive tastes which means sometimes I have to "just say no" and sometimes I have to wait ridiculously long periods of time for things to go on sale. The skirt was one such occasion. I had my eye on this JCrew skirt for quite some time and when Cyber Monday rolled around I quickly nabbed it- saving about $100. The shirt on the other hand was a happy accident. I didn't know I wanted it until I saw it sitting on the sale rack beckoning me with it's ruffles. It's like these two were just meant to be. The cardi was the only thing I paid full price for because, well, it's my favorite color and I wanted it bad. End of story.
Detail of the skirt. This fabric is amazing and it's fully lined. JCrew definitely has the monopoly on amazingly tailored pencil skirts.
Detail of the blouse. I forgot to take pictures of the sleeves of this shirt. It's sleeveless with a ruffle around the armhole. Super cute!
Be brave mixing patterns, colors and textures! The skirt and shirt are extremely textured- all those little black polka dots are raised and the skirt is a tactile dream. The seams of this silk cardigan are exposed giving it a slightly raw look that lends itself to both casual and "dressy" outfits. Sometimes I wear a bold yellow cardigan with this skirt and turn it into a citrus extravaganza! Don't be afraid of color this Spring!
