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!

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?

Sometime last week I wrote about adding more yellow items to my wardrobe.  A yellow cardigan is one item that I’ve had my eye out for–especially since I want to wear a yellow cardigan with a blue flowered dress to a wedding that I am attending in June.

My first outfit with this cardigan is pretty simple and safe and, tbh, it reminds me a lot of this outfit that I wore last year:

In both outfits I am wearing the same grey trouser pants and black belt.  The shoes are the same exact type but different shoes.  I can’t wait to come up with other outfits with this pale yellow cardigan.

On Tuesday the weather was a bit chilly so I went with an outfit composed of layers to fight the chill.

I copied this outfit as closely as I could.  I started with a white button-up blouse and layered an oatmeal colored v-neck cardigan over top.  I chose to go with my medium wash skinny jeans that I cuffed like the inspiration photo and slipped on my red ballet flats.  I accessorized with an oversized gold watch and two necklaces– a gold bauble necklace and a long pearl necklace that I wore tripled up.  I think I nailed it, don’t you?

Thanks for reading– stay tuned for my April re-cap and update on my resolutions.  I should be posting it within the next few days but I also have my semester wrapping up so I do need to grade papers.
