Today's Everyday Fashion: Take Two

This is a J's Everyday Fashion first! I've used this inspiration photo before, and I'm using it again! The first time I created a casual look (photo below), and today is a dressier look for work. Both times, I stuck to a palette of periwinkle, olive, khaki and mustard. But for this second outfit, I switched the colors around and did an olive skirt instead of an olive jacket.

Styling tip: Find a color combo that you love in your closet? Chances are you might be able to achieve a similar look with the same palette like I did here. Try switching around the colors in your favorite outfit to come up with something totally new!

  4. I've been following your blog for a while now ... I'm quite short (5"3) but can't walk in heels very well. So I bought a pair of black wedges for work and they're super comfy. The wedge is quite small (just 4cm) but for now, that's enough for me! They look like a ballerina shoe, safe for the wedge.
    So ... thanks for teaching this old donkey a new trick :)

  5. I love the iridescence! All the fabrics look so lovely and luxurious!

  6. oh I love that skirt! And your mustard shoes!! :)
