Hope you have all had a great week. Today, I’m wrapping up the week with a recent work look.
|Skirt: Ann Taylor (Sold out on-line; May be available in stores)|
|Top: eloquii (Sold out; See here)|
I love playing with textures, so for this look, I wore a chiffon skirt with striped ribbing detail and a lace crop top. To show off the texture of the lace top, I chose a beige cami.
|Tank: The Limited (Available here)|
I wanted to give these lightweight fabrics a more autumnal feeling and to take away some of the delicateness of the look, so I added a velvet blazer and open-toe booties.
|Blazer: New York & Company|
A faux crocodile-embossed satchel completed the look.
Velvet and chiffon are certainly unexpected textures to wear together, but I’m loving how the mix adds depth to the outfit.
Do you like mixing textures and patterns in a look?
P.S. The first time I wore this skirt (link below), I noted how I planned on getting it hemmed. I have since had it hemmed (as pictured here), but it still felt a little long, so I brought it back to my tailor. I hope to have it the perfect length soon. Sometimes tailoring is a process of trial and error. It’s always better to err on the side of too long because then the piece can be shortened. Take off too much, and you’re stuck with a skirt you don’t want to wear.
