Mixing Browns with a Dash of Plum





Apparently the weather can't make up its mind about whether it wants to be warm or cold. Luckily for me, this morning I was able to make up my mind pretty quickly about what I wanted to wear. I've been gravitating towards my pencil skirts a lot lately - I think it's because I can change the colors of camis that I wear with them, and they are super easy to wear with flats to work. Whenever I wear pants, I always have to fold them up and use clips to hold them because I have my pants hemmed to be worn with heels. Plus, pencil skirts are that perfect mix of feminine but professional! Today I've gone for a palette of all browns, with a dark brown jacket, lighter brown skirt and snakeskin print pumps. The dash of plum, courtesy of the cami, adds just the right pop of color so the outfit doesn't get too boring. Plus I can bring out my plumeria necklace and Chanel earrings to give the outfit a bit of a spring-y vibe!

Skirt: J. Crew, similar for US here and UK here
Jacket: Ann Taylor, if you are in the US, this cream blazer would make a lovely contrast, and if you are in the UK, this blazer matches the skirt and makes the outfit into a suit!
Cami: Ann Taylor, similar for US here and UK here
Necklace: Na Hoku - plumeria collection
Earrings: Chanel, vintage Chanel earrings can be purchased at a discount from LXR & Co.
