Simple with a Pop

These days, it's been hard wearing the killer nice outfits I planned because I just haven't felt like dressing up or they just don't work out. I was going to wear my mint eyelet top and an orange cardigan with this skirt but it just didn't look good. So I wore the black top instead. When all else fails, wear black. I added the statement necklace and bright pumps to make the outfit pop a little.
Since I talk about dressing to flatter my shape and hide flaws on this blog, I must say that I forgot to change my bra in the process of switching my top so the top part of this outfit, to me is not perfect. Lesson not to forget: Different undergarments go with different outfits.

  1. I can relate to having a great outfit planned, but then just not want to wear it for whatever reason, and have to pull something else together I don't like as much.

    Of course great accessories like the bag and bright necklace improve any look!

  2. Thank you for being honest! It's so frustrating having an outfit picked out, and then when you put it on, it just doesn't work. :(

    At least you pulled together something that looks lovely! I love that skirt, and shoes...swoon. Thanks for reminding me that even on those days where it's just isn't working, something simple can still work.

  3. This outfit you pulled together definitely works. The skirt is gorgeous and I love those shoes! We all have those days or weeks when whatever you had planned in your head never pans out. Black is always a good default :)

  4. I tend to recluse into darker colours as well when I'm just not feeling 100% on my game. And yes I totally know what you mean about having to change your bra depending on your shirt - a fact that many women sadly don't recognize. Anyway, your necklace and bright coral pumps add the perfect pop of colour to this outfit and I like the way you coordinated it with the stitching of your skirt as well!

  5. Love this look girl! That fun pop with your necklace and shoes is so perfect! You look darling!
