Outfit Highlight: Stripes and Brights and Eyelet, Oh My!

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.

  1. Love this look on you, Cynthia! I actually just picked up those shoes in black leather and can’t wait to wear them 😉 Really liking your whole aesthetic! So pretty!

  2. Cynthia, you always look like you stepped out of a Catalogue, either a J.Crew or Banana Republic one. So polished. I am loving your blazer, shoes & bag. I too am wearing a (new) blazer today with a striped Oxford Shirt. I’d love for you to check it out!

    Enjoy your new week. <3 Ada.

  3. Love the bright jacket on you. Adorable outfit! I don’t think I would’ve thought of putting it all together and it works beautifully!

  5. I love bright coloured jackets. You should definitely wear them more often as you can carry off a bold look without the colour over powering you! I love the sofr blue underneath, it seems to work by showing off the bright orange on top! Your shoes look really comfy!

  6. Super cute look! That bright blazer looks amazing with your eyelet skirt and striped top. Love how you paired a fun, casual loafer with this.
