I really love this bright silk shell that I’m wearing today. It’s such a fun, pretty color and perfect for spring.
Originally I thought I’d wear it with skinny jeans.
But then remembered I have a few appointments for work today, so I decided to dress it up a bit by wearing trousers instead.
If you are a regular reader, you will recognize that a common theme for me is to do things in 3’s.
I’ve talked before about my ‘rule of 3’- which means I like to have 3 parts to my outfit (usually it’s a shirt, cardigan/ jacket & necklace).
I also like to keep the colors in my outfit limited to 3- anything more and it feels a bit crazy.
That being said- on the right I did add a 4th color in- the red shoes, but it is in such a small dose, I think it’s ok.
On the left my shoes are snakeskin heels- which count as a neutral.
Comparing the two looks, I like the longer necklace on the left- it helps draw the eye down- and connects the top to the bottom.
I also realize that my wrists look so bare without any jewelry- but I sit and type all day at work- and can’t do it with bracelets banging against the keyboards. If I were going out on a date or to lunch – I would definitely add something.
In both outfits I think I need a belt. Something neutral… time to go shopping!
