Subtle Details




Sweater (Gap); Skirt (Mom's Closet); Shoes (Franco Sarto find at Marshalls);
Watch (Fossil); 

A cream sweater and a black skirt is a fairly safe and classic combination... there are simple ways of increasing the interest factor:  add texture with a leather skirt; a sweater with sequin details (a little tough to see, but if photographed in the sun it would be blinding); and then finish off the look with animal print shoes.  What I like best about this outfit is the subtle details that keep it from being just a sweater and a skirt :)

Really cute shoes, nice look! That blouse is in really lovely tone, suits you :)

Thank you so much for the comment! Hehe I'm quick if I'm just going to shop or something, and I don't normally wear a lot of makeup after all :) I have read somewhere that applying makeup base should take up to 40 sec or so - I'm trying to achieve that, one day! :D

I love this outfit, and the python wedges look great! A simple outfit is always a great idea in my opinion...how many layers and piles of jewelry do we have to add on so that an outfit is 'cool.' This is cool...I like it!
