merona button down · old navy sweater
mossimo slacks · jessica simpson heels
as i put this outfit together it struck me how much i like to coordinate. i like when certain details of my outfits appear as though they were just meant to go with others. i received packages in the mail yesterday from target and old navy and it seemed like the button down from target was a nice complement to the sweater from old navy. it's not a perfect match, but both have neutral oatmeal colored backgrounds and a pink design. there are subtle dark stripes on the button down that match the color of my slacks. and because i have to complete an outfit with a necklace, i added this neutral gold bauble one and added the gold shoes. the gold near the top of my body and also near the bottom felt like good symmetry without being too overwhelming or glitzy.
this seems like a really long explanation regarding the thought behind my outfit but i like being intentional about pairing pieces together for a cohesive look and i think i achieved what i was going for with this outfit! plus, it felt good to slip on these gold heels after debating at length whether or not to wear them last month. i thought they may not stand out so much with slacks but all my residents who saw them thought they were pretty fun :)
