Therefore, even though it is practically summer, I am going to reach into my backlog and pull out a favorite outfit. I wore this one to work after winter break, a la behold:
|Top and tights: J. Crew. Skirt and booties: Anthropologie. Necklace: Jacquie Aiche.|
This outfit revolves around a subdued yet creative mix of colors and textures. The skirt is by Cartonnier, and its hybrid pencil/A-line silhouette combined with the gather makes it immensely flattering.
The tights make or break the outfit. Getting dressed in the morning, I very nearly went with safe dark brown, but at the last minute switched to a deep plum color. Absolutely the right choice.
It's an elegant yet cozy outfit to teach in. Looking at it, I almost miss winter. Ah, but summer is full of possibilities.
