Ray of Sunshine

This denim pencil skirt has become another one of those clothing items I put on when I'm at a loss for what else to wear. It's the best kind of dressy casual.

Sweater - Banana Republic / Pencil skirt - Dorothy Perkins / Belt - The Limited /
Sandals - Christian Siriano for Payless

I always love it with a belted cardigan (exhibit 1 and 2), so I thought I'd try it belted with this pretty yellow boatneck sweater, itself a recently recovered closet gem (and yes, the same as this one). I don't totally love it with the belt (I think it might be a piece best unadorned), but I liked it less so without. I experimented with a few colors - tonal yellows, animal prints - but in the end I liked how the dark turquoise picked up the colors in my shoes.

Ring - Ruche / Earrings - Ruche / Nailpolish - Sag Harbor (Essie)

Such a pretty sweater, though. The trio of buttons on each shoulder, the open neckline, the every-so-slightly puffed sleeves - one of Banana Republic's nicest, more understated pieces from way back when. I simply must find more ways to wear it.

Handbag - Urban Outfitters


  1. Oh my gosh, that sweater is adorable! I love the three little buttons, that is the cutest detail ever. 

  2. Nina Garcia says that women who have true style don't wear something new every day; they choose the same essential pieces and work them into many different outfits.  She also says that shows true style,rather than fashion.  I agree, and you demonstrate that philosophy.  You have favorite pieces and you wear them again and again to represent your own personal style. 

    I love the pale yellow sweater!  

  3. I love love LOVE this outfit! Really beautiful!
