Ever since I paired my new J.Crew Martina Suede Wedges with a purple blouse in last week’s review, I’ve been wanting to wear this combination. Originally I thought I would pair my royal purple Factory Blythe blouse with my blue/orange J.Crew Factory paisley pencil skirt; but after further thought I kind of wanted to break up the colors a bit so opted for my J.Crew Ponte Peplum top. And then added my J.Crew-inspired fan fringe necklace (via Groopdealz) to tie all of the colors in nicely. Once I had the outfit on and was taking pics, I found the ivory peplum just got lost with the skirt and my waist also went poof with the whole look. Not quite the fab I was going for this morning.
What a difference a belt makes, right?? I certainly didn’t dislike this top before, and I wear it a decent amount with pants, but wow, I think I’ll take the belt in the future. The cardigan is J.Crew Factory’s version of the Jackie cardigan – the Clare Cardigan in Byzantine Blue. The perfect match to this paisley skirt! Oh, and these Martina wedges – if I wasn’t in love before, now I’m smitten after a full work day of walking around and they barely felt like I had heels on. I need a neutral color in these soon. Or more outfits that incorporate these orange beauties.
So what do you think – the belt makes a difference right? Amazing sometimes how adding just a few key clothing items can completely change an outfit. It’s all in the details! Would love to hear what you think and thanks for visiting!
