Grey and Gold

This super simple outfit is based on a pin from outfitposts.com but I cannot for the life of me seem to find it!  I spent about 15 minutes and then said to heck with it.  It was a bit chilly towards the end of last week with some rain and thunderstorms.  I paired this lightweight grey sweater with a pair of medium wash skinny jeans and brown ballet flats.  To further incorporate warm tones I went with an oversized gold watch and a long gold pendant/tassel necklace.  After putting all of my effort in to my outfit and makeup I didn’t have much time or energy left for my hair so I pulled it back into a low chignon and called it done!

Resort Wear

On Tuesday I paired my dark wash bootcut jeans with this flower printed top.  This top is three-quarter sleeve and can easily be worn all year long.  But, it always reminds me of the type of print that you see featured on resort wear.  The flower print always makes me think of vacation and tropical get-away’s.  Alas, I just wore it to work!  I added my red boyfriend cardigan in lieu of a jacket and then went with gold and red earrings and an oversized gold watch for accessories.  My black espadrille sandals finished off the look.

Here are a few other ways that I’ve worn this blouse in the past:

What do you think?  I should pair it with my royal blue blazer and a black pencil skirt next time!

Thursday I copied this outfit from Pinterest.  It’s another one of those outfits that consists of a lot of basic pieces that many women have in their closets— black skinny jeans, brown ballet flats, a grey t-shirt, brown belt, stud earrings, and a patterned scarf.  I love the casual nature of the outfit and the comfiness of the pieces but that it still looks pulled together.

As you can see, I duplicated it almost exactly.  My one departure was with the neck ware.  I have lots of scarves but not one that closely resembled the color or pattern of the inspiration photo.  I chose to skip the scarf and instead went with a long necklace with a locket watch in a bronze-gold color.  I thought that helped to tie in the cognac brown belt and brown ballet flats.  I went with silver cluster earrings that I thought paired well with the grey t-shirt and opted to go with my silver watch because it went nicely with the silver in the earrings, the grey of the t-shirt, and the silver belt buckle.  This outfit is a mash-up of different metals and neutrals but I still think that it looks cohesive.  What do you think?
