Mixed Signals







{Taupe and Navy Blazer ~ Vintage Kasper ASL / Floral skirt worn as dress ~ Thrifted / Nude Strappy Leather Sandals ~ MRKT / Gold Bangles ~ Thrifted / Amber Sunglasses ~ Vintage}

So one would probably come to expect an outfit comprised of my favorite things: a thrifted blazer and a skirt, worn as a dress. No? It gets no simpler and my Monday outfits need to be as simple as possible, lol.

I didn't know if I wanted to go totally structured with this blazer and maybe some slim fit pants, or super girly with this dress and a ruffly cardi. So I decided to mix the two. Which worked out nicely since the colors in the blazer pick up on the same colors of one of the flowers on the skirt. Matchy. But not. :)

I wore my now favorite DV hot pink suede bow flats to and from the train, but these heels in the office. The color could not be a more perfect neutral. LOVE them!

Add my new favorite sunglasses and I am totally vintage / thrifted, except for the shoes.  Pretty cool if you ask me. :)



xoxo, thanks for reading and have a great week! :)

  15. Ok Lexy, I would have never thought to pair that dress with that blazer but it completely works! I love the structure and trim on the blazer, and cannot believe that dress is a freaking skirt! You are the MASTER of flipping clothes, hands down. Love this look!

  17. I like the bit of unexpected. Most would not have paired the two, but they work at pulling out the navy an tan/beige colors while the pink is center stage.

    Cute sunny's too!
