A short while back, Kelly from Alterationsneeded.com had a post that talked her "go-to" outfit (see here). Hers consisted of a cute top, with a button-down cardigan, dark jeans, and heels. Mine? A simple top, dark jeans, a jacket, and a great pair of shoes or boots:
Blazer: Jacob (Black, size 0).
Top: Club Monaco (Grey, size XS).
Denim: J Brand 10" skinnies (Ink, size 24).
Shoes: Eric Michael Vogue OTK Boot (Black, size 37).
Handbag: Olivia Harris Hobo Bag (Teal patent).
Necklace: Long String of fake pearls.
I'm generally not big on pearls. I associate them with a snobby, southern, conservative, upper class woman. I know this isn't necessarily true, I just...watch too much TV? LOL. In this case, however, I think the pearls are a great feminine touch to this menswear-inspired ensemble. I actually bought this string of fake pearls when I was a young teen when I saw a photo of Alyssa Milano (who I just loved on Who's the Boss? as a child) wearing a very long strand of pearls around her wrist. After laying my eyes on that photo I was determined to get a similar pair. I don't think I've ever been brave enough to wear them until now.
