Thanks, Angie, for hosting PFC #19! Angie wrote:
“Today I am excited to announce the 19th PFC: Trend Benders. Pick your favourite Summer or Fall 2012 trend and make it work for you, whether it’s going all-out, incorporating it into a professional outfit or using it in moderation. For example – how would you bend this neon brights trend into something in sync with your personal style? Challenge yourself – you might even take something you think would never work on you and get creative! Extra brownie points if you can use your trend in more than one look.”
Here’s what I came up with: simple, trendy, perfect under a cardigan in
The tie-neck shirt, which in my opinion is more of a classic style, has nevertheless been EVERYWHERE lately and it served as the inspiration for this PFC. The top is a silk tie-neck top from J Crew that I bought on final sale this summer, and the skirt is the Polished Denim Back-Zip Pencil Skirt from Ann Taylor Loft. Shoes are Cole Haan with Nike Air technology (sooo comfy!).
