I love this happy mustard yellow paired with various shades of grey (and black) — and it is rather appropriate for the season. We’ve been getting plenty of sunshine (I think, I haven’t seen much daylight lately, except on weekends) and warmer weather, but no sign of green yet. But … it’s only March. Baby steps.
I picked up this J. Crew field jacket at Red Pony to replace my old, now oversized Old Navy one, and I’m pretty happy with it so far. Its season hasn’t really started, but I can see that having a grey topper will work quite as well a khaki one with my casual wardrobe.
Until recently, I’ve stayed away from malls and retail stores this year. I broke my thrift-only streak to scoop up this brush-print faux wrap skirt once it hit the clearance rack at BR. No regrets, either. The linen-viscose blend fabric is a bit prone to wrinkling, but the skirt is otherwise lovely. If you’re thinking about picking it up (and you should), keep in mind that, in my experience, it runs a little bit large. If you’re in between sizes, definitely size down.
I also recently splurged on this Skagen watch from Winners. I’m not much of a watch person, but I fell in love with its “starry night sky” face and minimalist aesthetic. I’m a fan of rose gold, so that was an added bonus. So far, I’ve worn it every day at work, and it seems to go perfectly with everything.
This is a super simple outfit, but I liked how nicely polished it looks. Sometimes less is more, I guess. I’m still of the more-is-better mentality (especially when it comes to colour and print) but I’m willing to concede exceptions.
I threw on a blazer for my hearing, both for appearances’ sake and to stave off the cold. I think the powers that be are trying to ensure we all stay awake by turning down the thermostat way low. Smart but also … brrr. This thrifted Theory number actually worked out better than expected, picking up some of the cooler undertones of the necklace.
Also, check out my awesome thrifted J. Crew collection pumps. They’re quite furry, which makes me (a) think of Cinderella, and (b) absent-mindedness pet them from time to time. I just hope they don’t start shedding like crazy, like my last pair of calf hair leopard pumps.
