In the Nude

Ruffled cardi: Eyeshadow via TJMaxx, $13 // Pants: Vintage, thrifted, $1 // Shoes: Forever 21, gift // Necklace: Gift

Despite decidedly non-springy weather, I really wanted to style an outfit based on light neutrals today. I started with my high-waist trousers, added a plain white tee and layered on a short-sleeved ruffled cardigan. I kept accessories simple with nude pumps and a silver necklace. I really like the result: a soft, understated look for a day at the office.

Beautiful outfit. I wish high waisted pleated pants would look so good on me!
And I can't wait for warmer weather to wear neaurals too. But everything in my country is so white and "dead" - neutrals just doesn't work. I have to wear either dark either some more intense colors not to look "dead" too =)

this is a cute outfit but next time you should add a slight pop of colour somewhere - ie colourful heels, or a bright necklace!
