InStyle inspired: Navy + teal green

When I received the October 2015 issue of InStyle, I was inspired by the cover with its mix of teal green and navy. I thought, “I could do that!” I immediately thought of layering my teal green cardigan over a navy dress. I could have gone with my solid navy dress, seen here, but I went with my floral navy dress instead to add some pattern. The floral pattern of my navy dress has bits of green in the roses, so it played off nicely with the cardigan. I also added gold earrings to echo the gold earrings Sofia Vergara is wearing on the magazine cover.

I thought about using a navy skinny belt but decided on a white skinny belt to tie more into the floral pattern of the dress. The white skinny belt also has a gold buckle, to coordinate with my gold circle earrings. I kept the shoes neutral and grounded with my peep-toe tortoiseshell wedges, so all the attention was up top.

I wore this for work, on the day I taught my first library instruction session of the fall term. Sam took pics for me after work, and it was a treat for me that a neighborhood cat, Cambridge, came out to meow hello.

    Beautiful color combination, and I love that you went with your floral dress! I definitely need to keep this in mind this season. Oh, and I have some peep-toe tortoise shell wedges practically identical to yours! Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday!
