Today's outfit started with these old Wit & Wisdom dark wash skinny jeans (an Angie pick from 2-3 years ago). I popped on a white lace cami and topped that with my white asymmetrical drapey sleeveless blouse. Over all of that, I've added my black suit jacket, with scrunched sleeves.
For footwear, I chose my black pointy toe kitten heels - I'm wearing two pairs of nude knee highs for foot and ankle warmth.
And for some reason, I was suddenly feeling like wearing jewelry today - maybe it's because of Lisap's recent Accessories thread??? I chose my grandmother's locket. Although it isn't obvious in the photos, I like the way it swings a bit when I walk and how it peeks in and out of the draped folds in the blouse. I continued the gold jewelry theme with my gold wedding band and gold watch.
A pop of citron with my handbag, black/white specs and swipe of red lipstick finish off the outfit.
Now here's my style lab question - I FEEL fantastic in this outfit, whether it looks that way or not. But I don't know why and I would like to try and figure that out so I can use those elements in other outfits. I suspect it has something to do with hitting the right combination of drape and structure but I'm not sure. I would love to know your thoughts on whether or not this outfit works to your eye and what makes it work (or doesn't).
