Green Top

I love taking old pieces from my closet and wearing them with new ones. I guess that’s the point huh? Or at least what I’ve been trying to accomplish with my closet: owning pieces that go with several other things in my closet. This old Banana Republic skirt has such a gorgeous pattern and I was lucky enough to get it on sale back when I was in college. It has been with me through it all! Then there is my new green blouse from OASAP. I love the light weight feeling of it and that it can easily be dressed up for the office, just like my orange and peach bow-tie blouse. The more sleeveless, colorful blouses I get, the more I want! They are just so versatile and make great layering pieces. I added my new pair of JustFab heels I got during the clearance sale and this gorgeous tassel necklace from Stella & Dot to complete the look. Color + Pattern at work is been something I’ve been trying to do more, so I was really happy with this outfit!

    Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I would never think to pair this skirt with a bright green top like that but it looks absolutely perfect!

    Have a great weekend!

      Thanks Jackie! I wouldn’t have either honestly. I was rushing to get ready and didn’t like what I had originally chosen with the green top. This skirt is comfy so I threw it on just to see if it might work and then I loved the result!

    I love this whole outfit! Especially that patterned skirt and nude heels. By the way, you have fab eyebrows. Random, I know (hopefully not creepy).

    Have a great day, Rachel!

    Oh Rachel you look fabulous and stunning! i can’t help myself and pin the photo of you. I left behind about your blog, life becomes busy with Iya and how i love to say that your new site looks fabulous. maybe that’s one of the advantage being absent for a while, you clearly see what you’ve missed out. Have a great weekend dear.:)

    I love your style philosophy: after all, who else than celebrities can afford to keep on buying new and new and new things? I love mixing old with new, and you do it perfectly! That skirt is so lovely, but I’m head over heels in love with your top’s color: it’s just perfect!

    Gosh, you are so pretty. This is such a playful outfit. Prints and color for work? You rock it. Those are both things I need to experiment more with. The pattern on that skirt is stunning; good thing you kept it! Following you on Bloglovin’!
