wrap-around + friendship bracelets
Included the next 2 (even though the lighting is bad) to more closely show
the cool neon print on the shirt as well as my corresponding layered bracelets!
But seriously, I love to mix fancy and casual pieces like a pleated skirt with worn-in tee or a ground-grazing silk maxi with a vintage band t-shirt. I love the idea of mixing fancy with casual, old with new or just unexpected combinations in general!
Since I don't work in an office I wanted to dress down this pencil skirt I got. Paired it with a crazy-colored screen print tee and tied the look together with multicolor layered bracelets. I also mixed black and brown in my accessories (another favorite combination).
I think Ralph Lauren executed this look well in the SS 2011 collection (via style.com):
|southwestern vest over lace dress|
|adds a thick, western-inspired belt to a floor-length gown|
|personal fav: flannel + sequin skirt|
Do you do business in the front and party out back? In other words, do you mix business with casual? What are some interesting combinations you've come up with?
