2 + 3: Neutrals and Patterns.

Today's Outfits were both worn on the second day of the 30 remix challenge. And what do you know, it was a chilly morning so I had to wear my Denim Jacket. But then by early afternoon it really warmed up so I switched into a Skirt and Tank. What these Outfits have in common is that they both have Neutral Colors and one item is in a print. Also, I am wearing a Tank Top in both of them. 
First I wore my Silky, Drapey, Comfortable Navy Pants which I paired with some more Silky goodness on top, plus that Loose, Drapey, Powder Pink Tank Top has some Metallic Embellishments and Studs, matching my Pewter Beaded Sandals perfectly. I layered the Denim Jacket on top (for warmth) but I cuffed the sleeves twice. I ended up really liking this Outfit, what do you think?
Blush/Baby Pink Silky Tank w/ Metallic+Bronze Embellishments on top of the Neckline: Express (similar, blush, loose tank by H&M, best deal, love this), (cotton tank option by Loft, on sale), (gorgeous option by J.Crew, love this).
Navy+White, Tribal-Print, Relaxed, Silky "Sweat-pant Style" Pants w/ Elastic Waist: H&M (New) (very similar in black+white, on sale, love these), (very similar in black+white by Jessica Simpson, great deal, love these), (similar by Old Navy, best deal).
Classic, Original, Charcoal Gray Men's Aviators: Ray Ban (My Husband's) (identical, great deal), (very similar, women's version, love these), (similar for men).

Later that day I wore this Gorgeous White Poplin Skirt, which has a little Peplum detail on the back, with my fitted Floral Brocade Tank Top (both of these pieces are by one of my favorite stores - White House Black Market). They matched together so well. I added a pop of Red Color through my Patent Leather Sandals and Lipstick as well as a pop of Orange through my Bracelet. Simple, easy, casual yet totally put-together. What do you think?
Hand Jewelry:
Silver Chain Bracelet w/ Silver & Orange Beads & Charms: JC Penney's (simple option), (similar by Vince Camuto, best deal, love this), (similar beaded orange bracelet), (classic option by Pandora, love this).
White "Mushroom", Painted Cocktail Ring w/ Rhinestones: A Jewelry Boutique for $1.00.
Real Silver Ring w/ Tiny Turquoise Stone: Express (very similar), (similar w/ large stone, best deal, love this).
White+Gray, Rose Brocade Fitted Tank Top w/ small Black Ruffle Trim: White House Black Market (similar by JC Penney, best deal, love this), (gorgeous option by River Islands, love this), (metallic brocade option w/ peplum, great deal).
White Poplin Pencil Skirt w/ Peplum Ruffle detail in the Middle on the Back by the Hem: White House Black Market (this year's option by WHBM), (similar by JC Penney, best deal), (asymmetric mini option, best deal, love this).
Royal Blue, Small Circle Stud Earrings: Random Street Vendor for $1.00 (New) (very similar in lighter blue), (similar in baby blue+silver, love these), (similar in navy+gold).
