Today I had lunch with the fabulous Allison Kaplan, so obviously I needed to step up my game! I wore a variation of this outfit when I taught a workshop at the IFB conference in New York, and since I knew it was a winner then I figured it’d be a winner again with some slight tweaks.

I think adding the bracelet pile and swapping the knit shirt for the button down gives it a bit more edge.

    You always manage to wear colors in a way that makes me go “what in the…wait I love that!” It also makes me less afraid to buy bright tops instead of just doing my black and white t’s with a skirt.

    Oh, and I have gone from loathing button ups to seeing how you wear them and wondering if I should go thrift a few myself!

  • i am in love with this skirt! and these are some of my favorite color mixings!!

  • Maddie
