Playing with brights is fun, but sometimes it’s just easier to reach for comfy, muted shades. To zap some interest into an outfit full of mellow pieces, I like to mix fabrics and textures.
I owe Elle a huge thank you for tweeting about the Talbots clearance sale a few weeks ago. To be honest, after I saw the tweet I went and browsed for maybe 5 seconds in the petite clothing section before I went “bleghh” and X’d the window.
A few hours later I decided to give shoes and accessories a shot. Lo and behold there were several gorgeous items at very fair prices. I am currently obsessed with this chunky faux-pearl necklace (was $11 down from $90?). It has cream, champagne, taupe, and hints of brown which easily go with anything. It’s also perfectly shaped and sized to provide “chest coverage” when worn with low-cut shirts.
