neutral

I went out for happy hour recently and decided to dress as if I could be coming from work.
I was telling my friend, if I am ever in an industry where I need a completely separate wardrobe for work and weekend, I'm doing something wrong.
Anyway, as you can see I'm getting good use out of this Kenneth Cole "chain" and the best part is it was only about 8 bucks! I've gotten more than my money's worth.
I've also gotten my money's worth from these Dolce Vita heels that I've had for probably two or three years. They are my go to neutral shoe when I don't want to wear black or brown as evident HERE & HERE.

wearing: zara blouse & trench, topshop trousers, dolce vita heels, thrifted bag, kenneth cole necklace, f21 rings, michael kors watch, gifted bracelet
worn to: drinks & sushi at OZUMO

  2. Classy. I've been on the look out for more white tops... and really like the shape of your Zara blouse. It's flattering and seems like a great base for both dressy and casual looks.
