A simple OOTD today, lovies. Just a mix of blue and black (which is SO ok, despite what I was told as a child), and some sparkle to give it that oomph of glimmer.
Shirt: BCBG teal silk blouse (this one is adorable)
Skirt: F21 ribbon and pleats skirt (here)
Shoes: Steve Madden cracked metallic bow pumps
Necklace: ModCloth "chain mail" necklace (sold out)
Bracelet: A.V. Max, and still sporting my hair elastic
As I said, this is quite simple. But sometimes it's the simple ones that are most elegant and fun to wear. I bought this skirt in the larger size, as per usual, so it wouldn't be up-my-butt short, but doing so makes it a hip-skirt instead of a waist one. I love waist skirts because of my shape-- i.e. NO WAIST TO SPEAK OF. But every once in a while, the lower slung skirt look is fun and (oddly) hard to find in stores. I actually got the general idea for this outfit on Alloy.com's website (the banner at the top of the "skirts" section) where they featured this super-cute denim skirt and button up shirt together. Normally, that is not my style at all, but for some reason it just looked damned adorable and I wanted to try it. (I'm actually thinking about getting the actual denim one, too, but I think I need to sleep on that one a bit more). Funny where inspiration hits.
