At first I was bummed that today was forecasted to be so cool (when the next week is going to be soooo pretty), but decided instead to look at it as a great opportunity to bust out this heavy ponte shirt once more! Lemonade from lemons and whatnot, right?
Previously I'd worn this top with gray+florals, red floral, and olive+black. Today I thought it'd be fun to pair with plaid to echo the top's boxiness in a somewhat less obvious way. I've actually got a few pairs of pants that are checked in one way or another but with the clouds I knew the cheerful red had to be the one to wear. Same with the cream booties, a much more cheerful option than black (which would've worked just fine); I picked the booties over pumps for a (marginally) tougher vibe. Accessorized with dainty spike-themed jewelry, spiked bracelet and pyramid studs in gold and brass respectively, both to echo the little gold buttons on the shirt's shoulders and to play up the punky pants. I wanted to keep the shirt the white star, so I went with my black clutch which stands out a bit less than white or another color would. Finished with a soft cherry-pink lip gloss because, well, it was all too matchy already ;)
