Achieving Balance

Day Eleven

What:
Striped Cardi- Joe Fresh
Turtle Neck- Rickis
Knit Skirt- Suzy Shier
Necklace- Gift from Corrine
Boots- Spring


I am going to explain this outfit from the ground up....

these boots are casual,
coloured tights dress things up.
 a great balance of dressy and casual.
add in the knit skirt, the knit makes it casual, the shape makes it dressy...
a turtle neck can be used to dress things up or keep things casual...balanced.
the striped cardi is casual,
must add something dressy,
bring on the statement necklace.
the perfect balance of dressy and casual!


Am I the only one who thinks like this?



Guess who turns 25 tomorrow!! 
I'll give you a hint...she LOVES shoes, and wouldn't complain if you dropped some off on her doorstep tomorrow!  If that's not possible she will be accepting cheesecake, apple pie, white chocolate, a Nikon D3100, back massages, warm weather, a visit from Brianna, a break from poopy diapers and lunch with her new friends.

This outfit is lovely! I was going to start naming pieces that I like, but I would have to mention everything in it. I love the way you styled the knit skirt; those can be unflattering if you don't do it right, and you nailed it! Also if I weren't on a shopping freeze right now I might try to find boots like those immediately.

haha I don't think you're the only one who thinks like that. But I know that I do not have that kind of brain power to offer my closet in the morning. It's a miracle I get out of the house with clothes on some days!

Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

exoh,
Elizabeth
