two ways to wear a lace skirt II - for work
skirt, zara; blouse and shoes, gap; jacket, ellen tracy via winners; bag, bcbg via winners; necklace, joe fresh.
for the second instalment in my little series of posts about styling this skirt, here are some photos of how i wore it to work and out for coffee afterwards - with a floral applique blouse, suede oxfords and a messy looking tweed jacket. as you may have noticed, i feature this $5 necklace a lot in my outfits because it's big enough and neutral enough to stand out against kind of awkward necklines and dull colours very well, and i'm not worried about losing or breaking it since it was so cheap. the shoes were a purchase i made with greece in mind but i ended up not wearing them much there because it was so dusty; they're perfect for urban montreal and it feels like i'm wearing socks on my feet, not shoes.
again i went with the white floral embroidery on the bottom and on the top and pastels all over which is normally not my thing, but this time i think the clashing textures and chunkier jewelry give the whole outfit a more grown up and deliberate vibe despite the fact that it kind of looks like something a 5 year old would put together. oh well, sometimes the day just calls for styling that's as saccharine as possible.
this will be one of my last outfit posts in the next two weeks since i'm heading out camping until the end of august, but i'll try to squeeze in a couple posts before i'm back. cheers!
