Putting It All Together

Nothing in this post is really new, except for the way I put everything together.  Actually, now that I think about it, everything shown here is pretty new, just not "brand" new (i.e. fresh out of the box).  The only exception would be my white (technically called "neutral") pencil skirt which is an acquisition inspired by the purchase of my J. Crew strawberry and mint boy shirt a few weeks ago and last seen not too long ago on my blog here.

After purchasing this spring appropriate plaid shirt, I wanted to find a way to make it a tad more dressy and work appropriate. A white pencil skirt was my answer to this dilemma. I normally don't wear white, but I thought it might be time to start. Since white looks so crisp and clean it is the perfect way to add a little bit of sophistication of any outfit, even plaid.

My shoes, last shown and reviewed here brought all of the pastel and mint goodness together. These shoes are a bit high, all in all they are pretty comfy to walk in. Walking in high heels is sort of a learned art in my opinion. It takes practice, but it is worth the effort.

So this post is not exactly Deja Vu. It's just an instance of trying out a new combination and putting it all together for a more polished effect.
