Inspiration for my outfits really can come from anywhere.
Yesterday, my boss was wearing a blouse and cardigan very similar – in both color and style – to the ones I’m wearing below. Her outfit made me think, “I haven’t worn a good all-over neutral look in a while.” So, I told her I was going to copy her. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, or something.
I did switch up her look a little bit, by wearing a white skirt (she had one that more matched the color of the cardigan) and adding tortoise shell pumps. But overall, we could have been twinsies!
Also, while I decided to wear this yesterday, it’s raining again today. Of course. So, the black is appropriate. (Maybe not the white so much.)
Shirt: Old Navy. I literally bought this shirt in college – which was now a long time ago. It’s been with me through thick and thin. Also literally.
Skirt: H&M or something in France
Cardigan: also Old Navy. The length kinda makes me feel like Mr. Rodgers. But in a cute way?
Pumps: Charlotte Russe
Today marks my 100th Tastefully Trendy post! (Actually, I have a few drafts hanging around, so this is probably just short of 100, but go with it.)
To celebrate, I’m wearing a festive scarf. This scarf was a good $4 deal from one of my favorite cheapo accessories stores, Body Central (as was the belt, actually). I feel a little like the Chiquita banana lady when I wear it, but I love the colors, and judging by the compliments I got when I wore it, so do lots of other people.
To highlight the fun of the scarf, I kept the rest of the outfit pretty simple. My skirt is a linen find from France (I think it may have come from H&M, but I can’t remember). I outgrew it and gave it to my sister, then she changed sizes, I lost weight, and it made it’s way back home. And light-weight white cardigans are one of my spring/summer staples. This one is still pretty white, which is a miracle. I basically have to buy a new one every year because I’m a five-year old child when it comes to keeping white clean.
Hope there is some color in your life on this rainy Monday!
