Casbah + San Pedro

Silk casbah blouse:  J.Crew, summer 2011
San Pedro pencil in turquoise skirt by Eva Franco:  Anthropologie, spring 2011
Looping Lanes belt:  Anthropologie
Pumps:  Seychelles
Necklace and earrings:  Gift from my mom, purchased at Macy's
Staring into my closet last night, planning my outfit for today, I challenged myself to find two older pieces and put them together in a way I hadn't thought of before.  The silk casbah top and the San Pedro pencil skirt have long been favorites for me, but why did I never combine these two ocean-hued pieces?  It was a nice cool-toned look for a hot day, and I loved it paired with the browns in the necklace, belt and shoes, which brought out the browns in the top's pattern. 

Speaking of the belt, I do love the way belts pull together an outfit, but for me, as I'm in and out of my car all day, belts can literally be a pain in my stomach and they rarely last past lunch time.  Does anyone else feel my pain?

Hope your Monday was good.  I'm still planning on wearing my older favorites all week, why don't you dive into your closet and pull out something fabulous you haven't worn in a while for your outfit tomorrow too?  I'm off to bed soon.  You know how when you wake up in the middle of the night and you can't think rationally?  I woke up at 4 AM and for some reason was convinced I was going to miss my 8 AM conference call...I fretted the rest of the night and even dreamed I did miss it!   I swear I can talk my neurotic self into anything at 4 AM.  Hopefully I will sleep better tonight!

  4. LOL I'm totally with you on the belts. I loooove the way they look but sometimes I end up taking it off during the day. If I'm sitting at my desk for the whole afternoon, I usually end up taking it off. Too bad they always look so good!
