OUTFIT: Cream, white and orange
Activity: Classroom learning for my volunteer ministry
Jacket: via ebay (similar - on sale)
Top: Old Navy (similar)
Skirt: J. Crew, thrifted (similar short, slightly different longer)
Shoes: Nine West, old (similar)
Bag: Cole Haan via ebay (similar)
Earrings: gold filigree - gift (similar); orange drops: ebay (similar)
I couldn't decide which earrings to wear today. Should I wear the gold chandelier earrings which play off the paisley in the skirt, or the bold carnelian drops? So, I decided to quickly photograph it and see what I thought. Give it a try sometime!
In any case, I went with the gold because the orange lipstick I was using was quite a bit different than the carnelian earrings, to the point of distraction. In the photos, the lipstick-earring clash doesn't show up as much. I was already trying to rock a white jacket, off-white eyelet blouse, and soft white in the skirt. I felt a bit weird about it, like people were going to think I was mis-matched, but in the end, I liked mixing the white tones. I would love to find a light khaki or sand colored pencil skirt and creamy bag to try with this look. Then I could achieve my fashion goal (see this post) of a light and bright tone-on-tone outfit. Someday!
