Nudes & Neutrals

I’m back with my latest fabulous finds from Marshalls! This week, we’re talking nudes and neutrals.

We all know that neutrals are versatile. White, you can wear it with anything. Gray and beige, too. And yes, black goes with just about every color you can imagine these days. (No more brown and blue stigmas!) What I absolutely love about neutrals, though, is the ability to just pile them on! Neutrals kind of function like bracelets to me… Stack and layer them on, and then add a few more until you’ve got one heck of a finished look! What may appear as one big neutral hodgepodge actually functions as a pretty chic outfit. I’m wearing black, gray, white, and beige. Mixed together. And it definitely works without looking blah or bland!

When I was putting this outfit together, I kept thinking it was a bit “Good Girl Gone Bad.” In a great way, of course! Floral pants can be very feminine, but the black and gray printed blooms make them a bit more edgy. I took a delicate scalloped silk blouse and paired it with a leather sleeved blazer to play up the “grunge meets girly” thing, too. And don’t even get me started on the shoes. They are show stoppers!

Can we talk about these floral printed pants for a second? Beyond obsessed. I wore them out with friends over the weekend in Chicago (outfit post to come!) and then again to work yesterday. One might question the versatility of a pair of floral skinny jeans (I would gladly debate them, obviously!), but when the denim is crafted from an all neutral color palette, you’ve got yourself one wearable pair of pants! I can wear these bad boys with just about anything. And I plan to!

Sadly, this is the last post in my Marshalls Fab Found series. I had so much fun sharing my weekly shopping sprees with all of you! Rest assured, I will still be frequenting Marshalls and sharing all of my designer steals for a fraction of the price with you guys. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I went to Marshalls over the weekend & picked up some amazing pieces. I’ll pretty much buy anything Cynthia Rowley & Marshalls is one of the few stores (aside from it’s sister stores TJ Maxx/Home Goods) that carries the designer. Enough about that though, your outfit is fantastic!
