What I Wore Today!

This was Friday's outfit- which was tossed together in a hurry. When I was getting ready, I made it easy on myself and thought, what color would I like to wear? Putty Friday came to mind, so it stuck, like putty. Haha.

I decided to pull 3 things from my closet that were close in color, yet distant in texture. I came up with the J.Crew Cable Cardigan in Putty (cashmere, yum), and then the Quinn Cami in pale almond (has some gold in it, very subtle rich sheen to it), and my cords, which I think were a warn sandlewood, if not a light acorn brown color).

It's fun wearing monochromatic colors. I think sometimes it throws people off, because it's normal to offset what you're wearing with contrasting colors (if you're brave and don't care like me. I'm in a 2 person office, and the other person better know what's best for him and not make a peep about what I decided to march in with this morning), or something plain that goes unnoticed (boring), but it does take some guts to pair up some colors that are close enough, to look stylish, yet daring!


  1. I LOVE your blog!! I have just found J Crew and have fallen in love with their clothes but am sometimes lost as to what would go with what. But I love your outfits you have put together and now I can look for some of these pieces on J Crew and eBay!! Thanks so much!

  2. Thank you! What nice things to say. :) I try to take some new and older things just to mix it up. It's hard to chase all the new styles when I have a bunch of hardly worn items still hanging there. It's great to have you here. I do it totally for the love of the clothing.

  3. This must've looked sooo sharp IRL!

  4. Love this..I am so totally into the play on textures and the all creme shades are gorgeous!

  5. Thank you, thank you! I've been seeing a lot of mismatched monochrome lately on tv...this set was totally cute.


A pleasant guest is a welcome guest. Play nice. :)
