outfit of the day: 03.09.2011

well, it's probably no surprise that the ackee pencil skirt came home with me and made it's debut today:

i paired it with the back porch blouse and the ribbon swell pumps i scored on popback for second cut sale price! i was worried wearing the red skirt and red shoes might be too matchy-matchy, but i think i added enough to make it work.

and then because i am loving blazers lately, i added the navy chalkstripe one from banana republic:

i liked the subtle mix of textures and patterns.
here is my polyvore breakdown:
Lace top
$98 -

Banana republic
$149 -

Style pencil skirt
$138 -

J Crew ribbed tight
$27 -

Bow pumps
$200 -

until next time,


  1. I love this outfit! The colors, textures, and patterns go so well together.

  2. This outfit is gorgeous! The blouse goes so perfectly with the skirt and the heels are fabulous. Did you find the shoes to be TTS? I'll have to keep an eye out for them.

  3. Oh, those darling red pumps. *Swoon* I absolutely adore them! They look fantastic with that skirt!

  4. oh man- these two items just sing together!!! the pattern of the skirt, the shifting texture of the lace...ow- I love...

  5. kristin - thanks so much!

    LC - you know, my two other pairs of chies are older and in a mary jane style. for both of those i took a 37. these were a 36.5. but i think i read they changed their sizing on a run of shoes and this might have fallen in that range.

    lisa - thanks so much! they are soo comfortable too! i am trying to be more adventurous with my shoes and i think these did the trick.

    thatdamngreendress - thanks! i haven't worn this blouse yet, but once i broke it out, now i keep wanting to pair it with everything!

  6. Very cute, I just ordered this, my ifrst ever order from Anthro in the UK.
    Thanks for the review!

  7. Hello, gorgeous skirt! And excellent styling.

  8. tabitha - oooh! how exciting! i hope it works out for you! :) let me know if you ever need any other reviews. i am in anthro practically every other day.

    from suns to moons - thanks! the skirt is way pret tier in person than i could have imagined!
