Wearables: Chambray on Grey on Grey

Have you all been flipping your minds over this amazing weather? I have, and it is probably most shocking to yours truly, if anyone. I was (am?) the girl (woman?) who loves luxurious scarves, steaming mugs of hot coffee, and fuzzy blankets on my lap while it rains outside. And yet, for the past week, I haven't been able to get my mind off of the thwack of flip flops, the smell of sunscreen, the rattle of frozen cubes in a glass of fresh iced tea. It's summer time, and I'm here for all of it! To that end, my wardrobe has also started the transition from Winter to Spring. I still wear black, boots, and sweaters, but I'm mixing in some pops of color, some flats, and some shorts and skirts. So, you know - basically wearing everything I own in some form or another! Look forward to future posts about all of that...

One of my favorite ways to mix up an outfit is to combine dressier pieces with casual ones. I tried that here (not sure how well it worked, but sometimes you have to flop a bit before you find the right mix), with these suede Zara sneakers and my trusty MZ Wallace bag, mixed with a relaxed chambray top and jersey knit Gap skirt. It's not just about combining different price points but also mixing up fabrics and styles. I added the neon necklace at the end to really signify that I was going for kind of a whacky combination here - what says whacky better than a neon plastic beaded necklace with faux diamond accents? Nothing, that's what.
