Light Blue Pinstripes, Houndstooth and a Leopard Touch.

Today's Outfit is from 5 years ago (when I just started blogging and about 99% of you didn't know I existed lol), but it is totally relevant for today in May 2017 because I am wearing light blue and white pinstripes in a chic button-down shirt with small ruffles - hitting current trends right now with one top. I am also wearing blush pink or millenial pink - check out those real suede moccasin loafers. And I am doing a subtle patter-mix with my cropped houndstooth pants. See how everything is back in style?!

I recently wore my new black+white houndstooth cropped pants with a bell-sleeve light blue+white pinstriped blouse, a statement necklace and a pair of gray suede wedge pumps but I have been so busy I haven't been able to photograph it. I later even switched to my blush pink suede Adidas (last seen ). So then I remember the outfit I am sharing today, from 5 years ago. I have a very visual memory and some outfits that I think have turned out great, I will remember for years to come. Like today's look. Simple elegance. Workwear chic. Mom ready. You can brunch, lunch or do dinner in it. You can shop till you drop or do your grocery shopping in it. Seriously you can throw pieces like these: cropped pants (solid or patterned), a chic button-down (striped, floral or solid) and some sleek shoes (pumps, wedges, block heels, ballet flats, laceup flats, moccasins or loafers) and voila - you are ready for work on a Monday!
