monday morning needs two things: a strong cup of coffee, and a killer outfit. well, i’ve poured myself a cup of joe. so it’s onto that ootd.
several years ago, j.crew offered a matching skirt and blouse that to this day i wished i owned. it was navy blue with pink hearts… but when i spied this black cherry pleated skirt and shirt it gave me the same sort of wow factor i felt about the outfit that got away. this skirt and blouse is a killer combo that looks like a dress when paired together. but, boy-oh-boy, do i look forward to mixing and matching the separates into a gazillion different outfits. okay, maybe a zillion is more realistic. one thing is certain, i LOVE fall fashion this year. and, j.crew is one reason why.
today’s outfit is a simple nine-to-five look that can fly solo. or, for a more conservative look simply don a black blazer. my red block heels are back in action today. and i’m playing matchy-matchy with the addition of a red leather clutch. a black belt for contrast, a pearl necklace, and i’m ready for my second cup of coffee. this week’s off to a good start!
