Top: The Limited

Tank: New York & Company

Jeans: The Limited

Shoes: Payless

Bracelet: ?

Earrings: The Limited

Today I was going for a little masculine/feminine juxtaposition. The pants are trouser cut denim which feels very masculine to me. I paired it with a floral, frilly top that I got last summer and had yet to wear. I love the print and the ruffles, but I just couldn't find the right thing to pair it with. I was not totally in love with the outfit when I left the house, but decided to go with it anyway.

By the end of the day, I was singing a different tune. I got two compliments on my 'look' from total strangers! And I took it as a good sign that the compliment wasn't just on my top or just on my shoes - they liked the whole ensemble. Note to self: more of this combination in the future!

I got these shoes at Payless nearly a decade ago - the last time t-strap sandals were 'in'. I don't wear them often and have contemplated throwing them out the last several closet cleanings but I'm glad I hung on to them. Even at two or three wearings a summer, they are worth keeping around.
