The Bangles

Another day, another pencil skirt. Today I wore one of my favorite skirts, the J. Crew no. 2 pencil skirt in garden floral. The skirt was a great deal and it goes with everything, so it gets a fair amount of rotation throughout the year. To "jazz" up what has now become a routine look for me I added these bangle bracelets that have been sitting in my "statement jewelry" stash for some time now.

While I like the way these bracelets look, the fact that they are always jingling or jangling with every movement renders them very impractical. Sure, they look sort of cute in pictures, but you don't have to hear the racket they make!

Outfit: Chambray Shirt: Old Navy, Pencil Skirt: J. Crew, Gold and Bangle Bracelets: J. Crew ( gold bangles here) Shoes: J. Crew ballet flats


  1. The garden floral print is one of my favorites too with all of its beautiful colors. I agree on the bangles--very cute, but they can make a racket! I used to wear bangles when teaching but they were too much of a distraction so now it's noise-free necklaces only.

    1. Noise-free is definitely the way to go! I think in the future I'll stick to one bangle at a time.


Say hello to Hello Katie! I would love to hear from you!
