There’s no doubt about it, spring has sprung in New York City. It was a lovely day at Rockefeller Center, and as you can see from the background of the photos below, we weren’t the only ones who thought so. I wanted to shoot this look because it’s my go-to comfortable outfit. Do you have one of those? I wear it on the occasional “blah” day, when I don’t feel like getting “dressed up” but still want to look professional. The combination of solid color and print, the blouse’s neckline and the easy fit are what makes this my foolproof outfit. It’s loose all around except at the waist, which is the aesthetic element that pulls the look together. Easy breezy!
Another reason I love this outfit: it multitasks! When worn without the skirt, the top is flowy and looks so chic with a pair of skinny jeans, heels and a waist belt. It’s made with uber-soft jersey and has a weightiness to it that lets it fall just right.
I certainly got a lot of bang for my buck with this necklace. It adds a dash of edge to the outfit but is still professional enough to fly in the office. I also love wearing it with punkier ensembles on the weekend because its reminiscent of pyramid studding. It’s so versatile! See how I made it work with a Chanel-inspired blazer back in April.
