Daily Outfit: Simply Turquoise and Black

Normally when putting together an outfit, I prefer to have a least one dominant color, one accent color and a neutral.  On Friday, I decided to change things up a bit and build an outfit that only utilized two colors: turquoise and black.  It actually let the outfit come together incredibly quickly, which is unusual for me.  I like how limiting yourself to something simple can lead to such pleasant results.

Since I didn’t have to work, and it was still miserably hot, I decided to go for a comfy casual look.  I just got this jersey skirt on sale for only $20 the other day at Urban Outfitters.  I love that it satisfies my desire to have comfortable and casual skirts to wear on the weekend.  I added some black leggings later while indoors to combat frigid air conditioning.

While I said I was limited myself to two colors, I guess I cheated a little bit by throwing in a natural linen tote.  I kind of like how it reverse my usual formula, having a neutral become the accent color.

That uber comfy v-neck tee was a great deal that I got at Express recently.  If they only had more colors that I liked, I would buy a ton of them.  The fabric is amazingly soft, and it was only $10 on sale!

    I love your skirt and I like when the tee is in the skirt, it remembers me how my mother dressed me up and that I hated have my tee like that.
    Hope you’ll understand my english !
