Navy + bronze casual

I wore this casual outfit on a day filled with errands and meetings, including an early morning meeting with our Portland realtor. It was a sunny day, but I knew I would be in and out of air conditioning, so I accessorized this simple navy outfit with a bronze scarf/shawl that I could wrap around my shoulders if needed. (And I did.)

By the way, I didn’t realize until after I’d chosen this week’s SIA inspiration artwork that this outfit today could also have served as an interpretation! But alas, I wore this outfit before I chose my most recent SIA piece. Obviously, I’m feeling the navy + bronze lately!

My metallic sandals and topaz drop earrings tied into the neutral metallic of the scarf. I added in a bit of whimsy to the outfit with my Nancy Drew tote bag! The top I’m wearing is one that I thrifted a few years ago, and it has cute retro details like buttons along the back and notched sides. (By the way, I never unbutton this top to put it on — I just slip it on and off over my head.)

    That shell is exactly the kind of thing I’d love to find in while thrifting. Navy and bronze look so great together … last school year I realized how versatile metallics could be. I ended up with two metallic sandals and one white pair … didn’t miss having black and brown shoes at all, those colors looked good with everything!
