Today’s work look was inspired an outfit @ Kelsey Bang, which I pinned immediately. I loved Kelsey’s color combination and feminine ’50s silhouette. I felt GREAT in this outfit, pretty and feminine and fuss-free.
The backdrop is a “Wishing Tree” in our neighborhood, with tags and a marker for all to contribute a personal wish — and send good thoughts for others’ wishes to come true. ♥
Details: Navy dress: Macy’s, gift-carded this summer / Colorblocked cardigan: Target, old / Mint skinny belt: Target, last winter / Navy tights: American Apparel, spring 2012 / Navy wedges: Macy’s, new / Gold hoops: Birthday set, summer 2012 / Gold square studs: Old Navy, gift-carded this fall
My favorite detail is how the mint skinny belt ties in the colorblocked cardigan.
And this was the first outing for my new navy wedges. I have been on the lookout for navy shoes — preferably patent leather — and Sam and I went to Macy’s a couple of weekends ago and got these on sale. Sam picked these out, and I love the bit of patent leather at the back. They are Anne Klein Sport and sooooo comfortable. With the low wedge heel and elastic edging, wearing these takes no effort. They’re light, sturdy, and practical — and that touch of patent leather adds a bit of fun. I also love that they almost exactly match my navy tights. 🙂
I’m putting this on the short list for my husband’s fave of the month, as (a) it has the colorblocked cardigan, which he loves, and (b) he picked out the navy shoes as well as this navy dress. 🙂
And, last but not least, I couldn’t help catching a shot of my husband, who looked so cute in his casual layers. His grey-and-neon-orange-stripe sneakers (a recent Payless special) were a last-minute addition, and I think they look great with his grey zip-up hoodie, chambray button-down, and striped gloves. Pretty snazzy!
