School Boy Shoes

Vintage Scarf: Quarter Life Vintage, Sweater: Battery Street Jeans (BSJ), Tank: Charlotte Ruse, Skirt: Downtown Threads, Tights: The Sox Market, Gem Ring: Gifted, Oxfords: TargetIn an attempt to branch out from all the black and grey I’ve been wearing I ended up rediscovering my love for browns. I know brown is still a neutral but I’m all about the baby steps people.

For someone who has always avoided yellow, I’m surprised by how much I love this mustard yellow skirt. It goes with just about everything and adds the perfect punch of color. I wasn’t sure if the skirt would work with the slouchy knit top but in the end I like how the proportions worked together. The silhouette was some what similar to this outfit.

I knew I had a busy day at the office so I wanted to keep everything low fuss and high comfort. I was able to achieve both with comfortable oxford flats and a low side ponytail with the cute travel themed scarf from Quarter Life Vintage instead of a hair tie. The trick to looking put together while dressing down is in the details; swapping traditional hair ties for vintage scarves and adding thoughtful accessories are both quick and easy ways too add a polished finish to your look.

How to you dress up casual looks? What tricks do you have for looking dolled up while dressed down?

  1. I don’t wear a lot of yellow because of my skin tone, but I think mustard works a lot better on me than bright yellow. That skirt is super cute.

  2. So cute! I love the mustard skirt! And thank you so much for the shout out on Facebook!!!

  3. These oxfords are perfect! I’ve been looking for the right pair, and by the time I discovered Target had them, they were sold out! Love em!
