Ensemble du Jour

The Outfit
Today I wore a sporty, Summery outfit that was still appropriate for work. The top is a polo style knit top I bought at Anthropologie. It's cream and orange with red side panels. The skirt is an Isaac Mizrahi pleated dress denim from Target.

The shoes are Via Spiga Branny. They are a very soft leather moccasin style pump. They are much more cream in person than how they appear here. What's great is the sole is very cushy - sort of driver moc-style and the stacked wood heel continues the casual style.

The Focal Point
Today's focal point is the detailing in the collar of the shirt. The shirt mixes up the polo style by replacing the traditional collar with cream silk done in a ruffly pleat. Anthropologie is one of my favorite stores for finding unique pieces like this.

AAHHHH!!! I recognized that Anthropologie top immediately. I coveted it for months, but couldn't bring myself to buy it because it wouldn't be very flattering on me. (I have red hair, and I just don't think any amount of red looks good on me) I love this outfit!

I too have red hair. I love to wear red! I think it depends on the tone, right? Normally I hate to wear yellow and orange, but I loved this shirt too much!
