outfit post: grey pencil skirt, plum cardigan, nude pumps


Inspiration - Victoria Beckham

I am in love this combination of colors. The warm of the plum cardigan next to the coolness of the grey pencil skirt feels both current and sophisticated. It wouldn't have occurred to me to pair nude pumps with this outfit - my instinct would have been to reach for black to match the belt and tank - but choosing the nude heels avoids being too matchy-matchy which could potentially date the outfit. I love the result!

Top:
     Black tank - Old Navy (similar, similar, similar)
     Plum cardigan -Banana Republic (similar, similar, similar)
Bottom:
     Grey pencil suit skirt - Ann Taylor  (shop same, similar, similar, similar)
Shoes:
     Nude pumps - Nine West (shop same - LOVE these)
Accessories:
     Gold link watch - Michael Kors (shop same)      
     Black patent belt - Target (shop same)

  1. Fabulous! I, too, would never think of pairing these colors together, but it looks amazeballs.

    I really enjoy the freedom that goes with not having to match your belt with your shoes and handbag. Owning a pair of nude pumps like this really allows you a lot of flexibility in what you can put together.

    Two thumbs up!

  3. Great pairings of purple and gray. It's so fall without falling into the orange and brown palette we're all so used to seeing :)
