For the Office. The muted raisin color of this skirt makes it perfect for autumn. I paired it with the taupe-colored silk blouse for an easy look and added the amber bib necklace for contrast. I would have preferred a wood necklace, but I couldn’t find quite what I was looking for even though this long wood chain came close.
I added a chocolate brown shoe and a teal bag. I’m not sure why, but peacock teal and dark purple/burgundy has become my favorite color combination. And then I added the ring with hues of blue, teal, taupe and purple to pull it all together. I have this ring, similar to the one above, and I get compliments on it all the time.
For the Weekend. This look was inspired by a very popular photo on Pinterest that combines coral and leopard. I adore the fit and look of this coral blazer from J.Crew, but if you’d like a jacket for under-$50, this one from Charlotte Russe is also nice.
This leopard scarf has a great texture and feel (I own the pale grey one.), and I love how it stands out against the dark coral blazer. If you’d like the same look for less, this scarf from Arden B. is pretty close. I also added the Rebecca Minkoff clutch with the gold hardware to pull the scarf and the shoes together. Need something under-$50? This bag from Urban Expressions has the gold hardware/chain and a similar color.
Lastly, I adore the way these gold studs are accented with silver/grey sparkles. I think they would make a great piece for someone who likes to wear both silver and gold.
