I’m gettin’ all fancy with the twirlin’

This outfit was directly inspired by the most popular pin in my whole Pinterest account. When I first noticed all the pins, I couldn’t figure out why, what is essentially a drive-by shot in an Urban Outfitters, was so well-liked. But having worn my own version, I totally see it now. It’s such a versatile look, it just depends on how many sundresses and blazers you have! This also infinitely expanded my work wardrobe and it lets me wear all the summer dresses I’ve been missing since starting corporate life.

Challenge Accepted

Per a comment request (from Lauren), I paired my hot pink jeans and navy blazer. End result…love it! Great pick, Lauren, I owe you some cookies.

To make the look more office-friendly, I balanced the, let’s call it spunky-ness, of the pants with the tailored blazer and low booties. However you decide to style them, I can’t recommend enough that you go get yourself a pair of bright jeans. Whether they’re pink like mine, or in any other fun color like these, bright jeans will make any day a little happier:

In the navy

date 09-26-2011

top: J. Crew / thrifted
skirt: LOFT / thrifted
flats: ModCloth
earrings: New York & Co.

Some outfits just make themselves. Classic black and navy is always a great color palette to build an outfit from. I had actually wanted to add a bright pink belt (inspired by Julie of Orchid Grey), but the belt fits my natural waist and this skirt hits me slightly below that so unfortunately it didn’t work out.

Not much more to say, just one of those days I guess. I’m going to blame it on the wicked storms that have been rolling through all day and have been making me want to wear nothing but my leggings and an oversized tee.
