This is a hella basic casual Friday outfit, but I’m a sucker for burgundy, and a sucker for loose, slouchy tops, and here you are: a possibly extra mundane blog post. In my defense, there is leopard print involved. Also, the top has some neat features like mixed fabrics (silk on the front, some kind of stretchy material on the back and arms) and a hi-low hemline. Like so:

Because it was a work outfit, I threw on a blazer. It’s a bit oversized, so I like wearing it almost as a jacket. The dark grey (with a faint pinstripe) goes well with many things. It also provides coverage for when, say, you discover that your silk top-front is very, ahem, clingy. Maybe that is why someone donated an otherwise perfectly nice top. I always wonder, you know.

  1. I might be pretty basic but I think you did this outfit just right. Rich colors in similar saturations, playing with textures, and some interest via the leopard print and the necklace (I’d love to see a closeup!). Sometimes pretty basic elements combine well and the simplicity can be a bit of a palette cleanser, either visually or for your brain (at least for those of us who think about our clothes a lot…)
