shades of green

I wanted to mention two things in this post. The obvious is that this skirt + top combination can easily go from day to evening with just a change of accessories. For day I went with my favorite loafers, an easy bag, and denim jacket to dress it down. This is perfect for going out to lunch or a casual weekday meeting and it's perfect for spring! I really love how this skirt brightens up the dark loafers and bag and makes the outfit feel more appropriate. Also, these Rayban's go with me everywhere.

For evening, I ditched the jacket and changed into a chunky heel. I added my favorite clutch I found in a vintage shop and kept the jewelry the same. There are so many ways you could style this skirt + top for an evening out, it would also look amazing with a black suede sandal! But I loved how the textures worked together with this outfit and the soft color palette is one of my favorites!

I also wanted to talk about bustier tops. I never thought I would wear one, I mean I love wearing cropped tops or shorter sweaters with high waisted shorts, but a bustier top? It's barely there. But this skirt is so high waisted and it just needed a super cropped, but delicate top paired with it. But now that I've worn one, I kinda love them. I think they're perfect for this time of year! Sadly, mine is sold out, but I've added other options below.

[ note: this top is actually a few sizes bigger than I normally wear. It was the last one in the store, but I tried it on just because and I actually liked it. Having it fit a little looser made it fall over the skirt perfectly and it gave the outfit a more elegant feel. ]
