What I Wore -- A Little Bit Southwest
Fluttery beige skirt: La Redoute
White button-down: Ann Taylor
Turquoise cami: Express
Red peep-toes: Franco Sarto
Bangle bracelets: Vintage, thrifted
Adjustable black belt: Vintage, thrifted
Carved bone sea turtle necklace: a shop in Hawai'i
Silver-toned earrings: World Market
I was aiming at a slight Southwest flavor here, without having to pile on the cliched chunky turquoise and silver jewelry. I think the red and turquoise color palette and the crispness of the sand-colored skirt paired with a simply white button-down, with just a few silver and bone accessories pulled off my intended effect nicely.
I hardly ever wear outfits which involve a shirt being TUCKED IN, though. So all day long, I've been sort of tugging at it, making sure it's still sitting right, ha! And the belt is adjustable in size and tends to slowly get larger as the day passes and the movements of my body stretch it out, so I've had to fix it once or twice, too. Over all, a nice outfit, but high maintenance!
