I love the idea of long shirts over knee length skirts! I think it adds something new and refreshing to a button up and pencil skirt. Speaking of the skirt, how awesome is this vintage purple leather skirt? I found it at a thrift store and it came with an equally as purple, but not equally as awesome, puffy sleeved bolero jacket. I had to buy them both in order to bring home the skirt, but it was well worth it!
As for the shoes, well that’s a whole thing in and of itself! I always talk about this piece pulling this other piece into the outfit through the color, but the black of the shoes and socks was nowhere to be found in the rest of the outfit! I thought I was going to wear a black purse with this, but when I put it all together it was just too heavy and overwhelming to have something black in my hand. I decided to go with this purple and red clutch from Anthropologie (check out the little fruit man, it’s awesome), to add a little interest to a color blocked outfit. But alas, there still was no black to be found and that’s when I realized I didn’t have sunglasses!
As everyone knows, LA is sunny. It’s almost ALWAYS sunny! I love it, don’t get me wrong, but if you want the kind of light I like in my shoots, you are definitely going to have to wear sunglasses. What a perfect way to bring in the black than with some black rimmed sunglasses? Don’t forget all of your accessories when putting together your outfit, sometimes something as simple as your sunglasses can make or break it!
