This fun aqua pencil skirt from J. Crew Factory was one of my purchases during my Memorial Day sales online shopping spree. I love the bright color and have lots of ideas for outfits I can put together with other basics I already have.
I really like how bright and summer-y this floral blouse is when paired with the skirt. A bit out of character for my normally somewhat neutral style. I opted out of colored shoes like the inspiration picture and went with a subtler grey because this outfit was already bright enough for me without adding pink on top of everything else. (I do feel a little Joan from Mad Men – slightly too buxom secretary – because my body is extra top heavy while I’m breastfeeding.) But all in all I’m liking the departure from my norm. 🙂
