Inspiration - Camilla Belle
I bought this top to wear with white shorts during the summer. I thought it was just going to be a casual top. But then I saw this picture of Camilla Belle and it occurred to me I could try to wear it as a work top. I don't know why I didn't think of that before.
Two things about the outfit I landed on - One, I wore toned done contrasting shoes (burgundy instead of bright orange) to keep it work appropriate. Two, I think this would be even better with a navy pencil skirt. I really want to find one. I went to the mall and tried Loft, Ann Taylor, Banana, Gap and Express and couldn't find one. I was surprised because it seems like a normal basic. Oh well, we have a tiny mall here, so I will keep my eyes peeled when I'm in DC for work starting next week...
But I did find accidentally find other cute work stuff that I bought, like this yellow & grey top, ivory flutter sleeve top, lattice sleeveless shift, shawl cardigan in grey, and this dot button down shirt. Yay fun new stuff!
