White Eyelet

White has been a recurring color theme in many of my posts lately.  The crisp and classic feeling it gives is something I always find myself drawn to.  I am also so very surprised how many women steer clear of it because they are afraid of getting dirty.  Since I am prone to pretty much getting some sort of something be it food or dirt on me every single day, I still have yet to get anything on me that has not proven to come out with my laundry stain spray.  And besides that, I get dirty no matter what color I wear and it shows just as much.  Anyhow, today I am highlighting my love for not only white, but specifically white eyelet.  This lace adds so much texture and dimension without going way too girly.

Although I have shown this skirt a few times here on the blog, it has always been in a lookbook so I thought it was time to give it some proper attention.  I wanted to create an outfit that could be a creative office look for myself and hopefully provide some inspiration.

A knit blue top that is coming off very minty in the pics was a soft pairing with the skirt.  It has a long silhouette so I decided to knot it up at the hip.  I was hoping that this top and scarf would have the same color blue and was one of the reasons I purchased the top.  Once I got it home, I was disappointed that they did not and wrote off them ever living happily ever after in an outfit.  Well I finally came around to listen to my own advise I tell people about their interiors: it does not have to match, it has to go.  This colorblock scarf contains both pastels and rich deep tones, so the addition of the more green blue is really a lovely touch.  I just draped it over my shoulders allowing it to go to the hemline of the skirt.

Neutral details with the brown wedges, wood bangle, and cognac satchel provide interest without being overwhelming.  And there you go, a perfect creative office look for spring, all from items from my closet.  You can check out the other ways I have worn most of these pieces here on the blog down in my Remix Feature below.

  1. Count me in as a lover of white (if I haven’t already said that ten thousand times—ha ha)!! As a younger girl, I didn’t like eyelet because it was too “girly”—but now, I think it’s a fun textural print!
    And can we just say, how cute your new tassel scarf from the Limited would look with this?

    1. Yaaaa for wearing white! Eyelet and Swiss dot were my favorite textiles growing up, probably because of the texture. No wonder I have such a hard time shopping online, I just love to feel the hand of an item. And oh ya, that tassel scarf would look so good with it, thanks for the suggestion!
