Outfit Ideas no.36: Navy and Pearls


blouse: takko fashion
cardigan: thrifted (similar here)
jeans: local store
boots: deichmann (here)
bag: gift (similar here)
necklace and ring: rings & tings (here & here)


As this outfit was put together for nothing too special, just running some errands and grabbing some lunch, I thought I would go for a more relaxed style (which is usually what I will wear on a regular basis) and for simple color combination: white & blue. The outfit is definitely navy inspired and I added some simple touches to keep it classy: pearl necklace & earrings, and my heart ring.  

I am a huge fan of stripes, in case you didn't know already and I always feel like there's room in my closet for "just" one more striped top. I've also been adoring the bag that my mom got for me for Christmas and it is absolutely perfect for fitting in all of my files/books/university stuff, without looking too stuffed, and I think that is due to its structured form.

P.S. I had a coat on top, so I wouldn't freeze - just in case you were wondering! 

What outfits do you gravitate towards? What items of clothing do you feel like you're always buying?

  4. If I had it my way, I would wear big sweaters, leggings, boots, and a scarf everyday! For work since it's super casual, I tend to wear skinny jeans, flats or boots, my work shirt, and a cardigan of some kind. When I change it up and wear a blazer or shocker- a dress or skirt, my coworkers ask why I'm all dressed up! Haha

    Your outfit looks exactly like something I would reach for too, especially if I lived somewhere that cold! I'm visiting from WIWW link up :)

  6. My husband just gave me a pearl necklace for our anniversary. I haven't worn it much--but I like the idea of wearing pearl jewelry with a more casual outfit!

  9. I'm with you. I sometimes gotta stop myself from buying yet another striped shirt. I can't resist though! Stripes are classic and go with everything.
