soft cotton

May 3rd, 2011

It’s funny how sometimes you can tell from this blog how often I return to a few favorite items in my closet.  This outfit has a special place in my heart because basically everything I’m wearing is one of those staples.

This shirt was sent to me by Lilla P, and I’ve already worn it to death.  It’s so soft and comfortable, and I love the bright pink color — what a great alternative to typical Breton stripes.

The Brahmin Anytime Tote is the same way — you guys have heard me raving about it before, but it’s really such a chic, wearable shape that carries everything I need.  I love this latte color and the incredible quality of the leather — it literally goes with everything in my closet.

And this bracelet — would you believe it was only $11?  I swear, I get so many compliments on my Forever 21 jewelry — people always think they’re really expensive!  I love the bright pop of turquoise in this one, it’s so fresh and spring-y!

Gifted Lilla P top and skirt, gifted Brahmin Anytime Tote, Jessica Simpson Dany platform heels, Forever 21 bracelet.

    You look beautiful as always…love those shoes…of course seen the style a bunch but the color is so great – I think I have mostly seen them in nude…nice change.

    Looks like my own go-to outfit as of late – skirt, platform sandals and a striped shirt… 🙂 To be fair, I have to stop myself from wearing striped shirts every day because there are so many hanging in my closet, I’m seriously tempted to!

    But you look lovely, as always! Your shoes are to die for and that bracelet gives your outfit the perfect pop of added color.  Forever 21 is seriously amazing. What a great find!

    I wouldn’t wear the shoes, but otherwise I really love the look!  The striped shirt is fantastic!
