After spending a good chunk of the past few days obsessing over the Mulberry Alexa bag, I decided to pull together a somewhat Chung-inspired outfit. The only thing that was any kind of issue is that she does a lot of separates, and I'm a dresses girl. I dissected her look in my head and it broke down to something like short skirt + slouchy top + boyfriend blazer or cabled cardigan + oxford flats or chunky heels. Seems simple enough.
But geez, the skirts that I do have aren't anywhere near that short! I don't know why. I am still in the proper age group (I guess?) to own and wear such things...
So I spent some time browsing the Frugal Fashionista archive for a bit this morning, and felt more inspired and confident that I had some boy/girl looks somewhere in my closet. This is the resulting outfit. Man, this blazer saves my life so often. It's like my version of a zip-up hoodie or Jackie cardigan.
Later in the day, I picked up this necklace and decided it would be perfect with what I was already wearing. I paid for it and put it on while walking back to my car. I think this piece will also work with lacy black tops and slouchy jersey looks.
