Last week I wrote about a Hall of Fame dress… and I think these individual pieces - the blazer, blouse and skirt - are begging for a nomination as well.
But before we jump into that, I want to talk a little about my inspiration for this outfit. Last week I did a big closet clean up/out and re-organized my collection of vintage scarves. If you’re ever in a slump with what colors work well together,
walk run to your local thrift store where you’ll find huge batches of inspiration, usually between one and ten dollars in the old silk scarf bin. Admittedly silk scarves can sometimes be a difficult to integrate into an outfit, but its well worth a dollar for the realization that lavender, red and navy look brilliant together. Or in the case of this outfit - red, coral, orange and oatmeal.
Now… about those remixes…
