For an outfit that is, in many ways, atypical for me, it came together quite naturally. I was on a quick visit to J.Crew to return an item and, of course, I couldn’t leave without quickly scanning the sales rack. This orange blazer caught my eye right away (the last one and exactly my size!), even though I typically don’t go for bright colored blazers. Perhaps it was the feminine puff sleeves, which I hadn’t seen in a while, that piqued my interest. I also found this seersucker eyelet skirt, also not a typical choice. I tried on the blazer and the skirt with the silk striped shirt that I happened to have on at the time along with my slip-on sneakers. Somehow, the whole ensemble just felt right. I would have never thought to combine the striped shirt with the seersucker eyelet skirt. I rarely do mixed patterns so this was a nice change. And I think that the long winter we had left me wanting for bright spring colors. Besides, it’s always fun to mix it up every once in a while.
