|LOVE the ruffles!|
|Cool filigree-esque details and python print!|
I woke up really tired yesterday morning and lounged around with Keppie for most of the morning. I couldn't seem to shake the 'funk' and I had stuff that needed to get done, including making dinner for my friends C & A (and their 3 year-old, S) who had a baby girl a little over a week ago. When I'm not feeling well or am in a grumpy mood, getting dressed up a little more than usual really makes a difference and helps give me a pick-me-up.
I decided to go with a 'business casual' look (even though I am on break from school, and I can pretty much wear anything I want there anyways.) I started with this yellow lightweight sweater. It has a great ruffle detail at the neckline and the hem! I then layered on this menswear-inspired pinstripe vest. A black straight skirt added polish and upped the 'business' feel of this ensemble. Because the sweater is such a vibrant yellow, I wanted to keep the accessories in the gold family. This long gold necklace has great filigree-esque details and the gold python print belt pulled everything together. I wanted to add another splash of color, so I chose these coral gladiator sandals. The gold chain detail ties perfectly into the gold-themed accessories.
Vest: Thrifted (originally H&M)
Necklace: Banana Republic
How do you dress when you are in a 'funk'??
