merona button down {thrifted}
j crew factory basket weave skirt
c label sherry flats   ·  bauble bar necklace

{ similar button down / exact skirt / similar flats / similar necklace }

although i love this new skirt from j crew factory, i'm not at all impressed with my first stab at styling it.  i don't really like the way this chunky stone necklace looks with the button-down and it's a lot of navy.  i think the skirt would look sharp with just a crisp, white button-down and nude heels but our temps still call for tights in the mornings.  i will look forward to the freedom i have with wearing different shoes when i don't need to match them to my tights, but navy tights & navy shoes seemed like the way to go today.

i still wanted to post this outfit in case anyone has been considering buying this skirt.  overall, i'm really pleased with it as i usually am with skirts from JCF.  it's a nice, thick fabric with well made construction.  the green background is a little more neon than i expected but i think wearing a lot of navy in today's outfit helped balance that out.  this pattern also comes in every item imaginable if skirts aren't your thing but you like the print.  i guess it's the pattern of spring for JCF!
