Pink on Gray, Gray on Pink

How many blue shirts does a girl need? Apparently, I need three. A blue v-neck dress shirt, blue oxford shirt, and now a blue chambray shirt. This J.Crew Boy Shirt in Indian Voile in indigo, size 0 is lightweight, a bit sheer, and oh-so-comfortable. The fabric reminds me of linen. It's big and loose on me, but I plan on wearing it casually, so it'll do the job. Note: this top is not meant to be worn on hot, humid, and sweaty days. Yuck. Boy, did I learn my lesson.

The necklace I have on is from SewPetiteGal's guessing-the-baby-gender giveaway (congrats SPG on your girl bundle of joy!) I'm a huge fan of pearls, and like blue shirts, I can't seem to get enough of them :) The necklace closely resembles the Merona gray on black necklace I already own, but is longer, so it definitley has more accessorizing potential. When worn, I like how the ends of the ribbon hang down the back. I can also see it worn draped across the front.

Remember how I couldn't figure out how to tie a tie? No problemo when tied as a belt. I rather like this look myself, so raiding bf's closet may become the norm. Tie: 1, Cee: 1. HA!

  19. That skirt is too adorable and to steal your bf's tie to use as a belt is brilliant, girl. You are super creative.

  22. great color combo! love the skirt!

  23. So creative with the bf's tie, haha! But does it shift around easily? like when sitting and standing? or do you safety-pin them? When I wear belts and sashes over outfits, I'm always adjusting, so I end up tossing out the belt idea. *anyways! yay!!! is this your first non-headless photo?

  24. Once again, I love this outfit! I really like the fact that it's creative but not too over the top. The skirt is adorable. Yay for the sideish view of you! One step closer to seeing you!
    p.s. I'm an expert at knowing that these shirts are horrid for hot, humid, sweaty days ;)

  28. Such a cute outfit as usual, Cee, AND YOUR HEAD IS IN THE PICSHUR.

  29. Thank you all for the kind words <3

    @PetiteLittleGirl - Get it, I think you NEED one too :D

    @Sunshine - Hahaha, it's so hard to think up poses on the spot! Please do more fun poses so I can copy :)

    @gold N turquoise - Thank YOU for the inspiration!

    @Elle - I've already worn the tie the same amount of times that bf has worn it, hahaha.

    @Olyvia - I have the worst time with skinny belts worn with skirts that do not have belt loops! They shift so easily, so I'm always readjusting too =/ The tie wasn't as bad because it's thicker and I tied it pretty tight. And yes, first head shot! Perhaps more semi-hidden facial shots to come? :)

    @kimmie - Haha, what the heck, pictures look so much more interesting without my big head cropped off :)

  30. Ooo, cute ensemble, Cee. I especially love the last picture with your head in it, even though it is not facing me. :) I missed the whole guessing the gender fun, she's having a girl? Yay!

  31. Love the way you mixed prints with the skirt and tie Cee....you look so adorable as always! (I enjoyed the last picture, your hair looks so pretty)!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love this skirt...the polka dots are adorable! And I love how you kept it from getting too cutesy by pairing it with the casual blue shirt and gorgeous necklace.

    And your head! It's in the picture! I love your hair :)
