Good morning my lovelies - I've missed you :)
Dressing this past week has been somewhat confusing - the leaves are falling off the trees, geese are flying and the days are getting shorter but the actual temperatures are hot, hot, hot. So I'm wanting to dress in fall like ensembles but try and stay cool.
I was thrilled to see Angie's blog post about refined darks in casual ensembles for MOTG and decided to take that formula and apply it to my office attire. I couldn't be more pleased that the colour combo of dark blue, black, grey and white is going to trending this fall - that's pretty much what my fall and winter wardrobe already consists of. Don't you love it when that happens?
Today's outfit started with my black midi pencil skirt and a simple black tank. I then added my ink blue lace jacket. This jacket is the perfect weight for this time of year since the sleeves breathe with the lace cut outs. For my touches of white, I dug out my neglected Doc Martens Sara oxfords. I like how the black in the shoe ties in with the skirt and then the white gives the lightness. I realize these shoes do not fit the current refined shoe trend as they are quite chunky, but hopefully they work in this instance. I then added my large light cream handbag for another touch of lightness. A simple black and white large watch completes the look.
What do you think? Does this illustrate Angie's formula? Do the shoes work with this? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
Oh yeah...and I've switched to my fall lipstick which is a darker red/burgundy blend.
