This outfit is definitely leaning all the way into the boho side of my style persona, but I enjoyed it a great deal nonetheless. It probably helps that all the colours here are quite muted, which is where my current sartorial mood is at. And while there is quite a bit of pattern mixing going on, it’s all rather subtle. Muted and subtle? Who am I, even? I don’t know what to tell you. I’m just going with the flow and seeing where this takes me. Or, rather, what sort of closet is left standing at the end.
Let’s talk pieces. The skirt is new-ish, but you’ve seen it before. The midi length definitely calls for the highest of high heels; however, much as I am tempted to bust out my Louboutin platforms, they’re sadly not office-appropriate in my case. Sigh. I went with my next highest pair of (non-platform) pumps, which luckily worked with the whole colour scheme. Metallic pumps are surprisingly neutral particularly in a (more subtle, hah!) gold-foil finish rather than a mirrored finish. My pair is old, but I recently saw a very similar one at Nine West. The blazer is a new thrift find. Ted Baker blazers always have the prettiest linings, and this one is no exception. The cropped style works well with skirts, and in fact helps to balance out the longer length of this particular skirt and keeping that frump factor low.
