This past Sunday, I had in mind that I wanted to wear a specific skirt. So I took it out of the drawer. But then my mind went blank and I couldn’t think of what tops to wear with it. For a minute or two, I considered putting that skirt back and taking out a different one. But then I remembered that this is the kind of challenge that I love. So I went with that and then I came up with some ideas. Here’s how it worked…
Skirt- Medium-wash denim, A-line. Denim blue is a secondary neutral and it goes with just about everything. Maybe it was the myriad choices that left my mind a little overwhelmed.
Shell- teal blue fitted t-shirt. Teal is my best blue and these tees work great both on their own or as layering pieces.
Pullover top- Light aqua, deep V-neck. Normally, the waist of this top is more fitted but I think the extra cinch made it balloon out a bit.
Button-down- Bright teal. Button-down shirts are so versatile. They work on their own, as an underlayer, or as an overtop. I can wear them buttoned or tied.
It was a very cold day so three tops gave me good layering against the cold and they were much more flattering than one or two bulky tops.
Wrap- Mix of solid scarf plus print, turquoise in both. These coordinated with the mix of blues in my tops.
Earrings- Yellow and orange millefiori cluster drop earrings. Here was the perfect pop of contrast. Orange sits opposite blue on the color wheel and the two colors look great together.
Dear readers, did you ever have an outfit challenge? How did you handle it?
