Outfit Ideas: Hello Honey

I have been absent for a while…my apologies, last month has been so busy and joyful! Am back with some outfit ideas while I was away. Hope you enjoy!

First, using different tops with the same denim shorts from J.Crew Factory.  Next, some random outfits from my vacation.  Let me know which you like best! I will be updating links to the outfits later this week.

monarch sweater/ skirt / shirt and clover tweed skirt

Regarding the J.Crew clover tweed, the green is mixed with cream and I was glad to find the perfect match in the silk tux shirt by Madewell.  Covered everything under an old BCBG military-style coat paired with some old ALDO boots:

A review of the Collection Wool-Silk A-Line skirt:

Neon skirt

Pros: quality is great (mixture of wool and silk), pretty and very bright pink (a tad salmony to me), loving the subtle A-line, great savings with extra percent off.  I sized up to get a little more length

Cons: short! I may be forced into heavy tights with this one; also wrinkles easily

Sissi’s verdict: Keeper

Phones and Neon Pink (OI 10 Sept 2013)

A second outfit idea for the true ring shell top, this time with a yellow sweater and black skirt.  The neon pink top is from BCBG, it reminds me of the J.Crew Blythe silk top, though the BCBG is a lighter and a rougher silk (crepe de chine). The link is not the exact top but it is the same style, different color.   The neon pink is very bright, but cute!  Skirt is an H&M favorite, and very old (over  four years?). It is a heavy cotton, I so wish H&M could bring back quality skirts 😦
