I decided I wanted to wear my maroon pants yesterday and then worked from there to put together this outfit. I last wore them in March in a neutral early spring outfit. This time I decided to go even more spring-like with this flowy floral top and pale pink sweater. It was a warm day so I went with my open toe wedges. (Love these wedges by the way. I bought at the Lilly Pulitzer Warehouse Sale a year or two ago and I have worn them on a ton since I got them. Very comfortable and pair well with everything.) I grounded the outfit with my cognac MK satchel. The gold details on the purse tie into gold accents on the shoes. I had planned to take these pictures outside, but a shower was passing through after work, so I had to stay inside. This outfit works with a pretty basic formula: interesting top, completer piece (cardigan), neutral pants, shoes with a little detail, and classic accessories. It's the formula used often on What Not to Wear. Jodie Noted has a really nice post about this formula with examples. Check it out here!
