It's About the Layers
This is one of my favorite outfits I've worn in a while. I had the inspiration to wear a pencil skirt from a post on Work Your Closet the other day. And then as I was hanging up my silk ruffle shirt in the closet yesterday, I saw this blouse and remembered that I wanted to work it into an outfit somehow, and thought "Animal print + ruffles + grey + grey pencil skirt = could work". Then I saw the grey, yellow, brown, and white scarf in my closet, and it came to me - yellow shoes, yellow jacket and the scarf could take this to another level - and fortunately the mirror confirmed my intuition!
The first layer - blouse, skirt, and some kickin' heels. I love those heels.
Of course, don't forget the accessories. Necklace = cool bracelet.
Today was also a special day for me - Haircut!! I love getting my haircut. I have to admit though that I was nervous sitting in the chair watching my stylist chop off my hair. However, I am very happy with the results - I just hope that I will be able to recreate my self!!
