26 May 2011 - Pumpkin Spice

Sources:

  • Sweater: Theory via Neiman Marcus Outlet
  • Patterned Tank: Banana Republic
  • White Tank (under): BR
  • Skirt: Gap (swapped with A.)
  • Belt: J. Crew
  • Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti via Filene’s Basement

Endnotes:
All of the individual parts of this outfit are certainly springy, but the whole thing together reminds me of a late fall concoction of ripe pumpkins, rich browns, and golden leaves – in short, A. and J.’s favorite drink: a Pumpkin Spice Latte. I wanted to add a spring-y-er element, and I needed something to cover my shoulders, so I followed in A.’s footsteps and opted for my turquoise cardigan.

A. has done some fantastic pairing with her orange pencil skirt (of which I am insanely jealous!) and while my brown skirt and orange patterned top isn’t making the same splash, it is still a nice pop of complementary colors.

What summer items or combinations have you been sporting that you associate with other seasons?

    I also wore a brown and orange combination recently. It felt very autumnal, but sometimes you just have to go with it!
    It looks like you have something interesting going on with the patterned top and textured skirt.
    Also love the addition of the turquoise cardigan. It does indeed make it springy-er, but still works with the orange and brown!

    I also wore a brown and orange outfit recently. It felt “off” to me…maybe I’ll revisit the outfit when autumn rolls around. I like how you added the turquoise on top…perhaps I need to add that to my shopping list :)
