I love this outfit. It wasn’t my original intention to wear this combination of items, but it really works well together. I woke up that morning with a different idea in mind, but swapping things out with other things eventually brought me to this stunning look. I’ll be using this as a template for other outfits in the future, to be sure.
When rummaging through my accessories, looking for a necklace, I took a chance pairing the classy, lady-like long-strand faux pearl necklace with the modern, punk style of the grommeted belt. I don’t get to wear this belt often, and wondered if it would be too casual for work, but pairing it with the necklace (and the rest of the clean lines) made it quite appropriate.
The socks are not really noticeable, but how could I resist those cute little owlie faces?
