Black and blue is my default colour combo, but I realized I hadn’t worn this green MaxMara skirt in a long time, so it was time to switch things up. I added extra hints of green with the necklace and shoes, but kept things pretty simple otherwise. The faint pinstripe of this DKNY blazer also added a subtle bit of visual interest. I really loved the resulting outfit, even though it doesn’t photograph quite as well as I think it looked in real life.
Did I mention my thrifted Theory top has pockets? How cool is that? Actually, my entire outfit (top, skirt, and blazer) is thrifted and it cost under $20. Pretty cool. Who says you can’t build a work wardrobe on a budget? People have been asking me if I would be interested in opening a resale shop as a thrifting side project, and the answer is … honestly, no. It’s rather time-consuming, and I don’t enjoy the administrative aspects which make up a good chunk of that time. But if I ever won the lottery, I would definitely love to have a small, local studio — and pay someone to run it, so I could spend my time sourcing cool finds and doing style consults. How much fun would that be?
