I love this look. Anything that incorporates a white pump gets me excited. H&M is a great resource for inexpensive pieces, like this simple dusty rose shell, which served as inspiration for this two-way. We kept it simple, yet fresh with a go-to gray skirt and these croc embossed pumps. To round out the look we went with some jewelry with a modern line. A big gold bracelet watch is a fun accessory when the rest of your pieces are understated. We worked the white into the look with this bracelet. Finally, updated hoops round out the look.

For the second look, we played with colors and pattern. Classique Entier makes a fantastic pant that fits beautifully and lasts a long time. This color is called “navy peacock.” It’s brighter than a traditional navy but can be used the same way. When you are working with colors that are not traditional basics, it’s important to make the look cohesive. In this look, I pull the rose color in three ways by using it in the tank, in the earrings and the necklace. Then we pulled the new navy from the pants and put it into the scarf. The white pump makes it fresh and bright.

  1. Love this. I’m all over this post, but most of all: I can wear my old crystals to the office (every now and then)? Promise? I’M ON IT.

    1. It depends on what you mean by “old crystals” lol. But, yes, if you have something similar to the necklace above, go for it. Make sure the chain is on the long side. The one featured doesn’t look it, but it’s long enough to help create visual length.
