WIW 10.22.13 - Navy & Gold

Not much to say about this one, although I'm a little uncertain about my choice in tights and footwear. I like the idea of book-ending with my top...but just not sure. If I were to wear nude pantyhose, I'd probably have to buy new shoes...so I'm working with what I have.

Also, my camera flash changed the color of the skirt dramatically. It's a somewhat lighter version of the gold in the blouse.

I'm wearing the Munro booties recommended by Angie and am in love with them. They're sleek, not too gape-y around the ankle and comfy as slippers.

    Oooh, I like it. I think it works better than yesterday's outfit.

  • Suz replied 4 years ago

    Not much to say except FABULOUS. I agree with Anna, it is super flattering and I love the combination of that skirt and the jacket. 

    I share your love for the Munros. I have the cranberry ones and agree they are as comfy as slippers!

    The color combo is unexpected and really rich - it looks great!

  • El Cee replied 4 years ago

    You look fabulous. The color combo is just gorgeous. Dittoing texstyle -- it looks very rich. And I think the dark tights and footwear look great as they nicely bookend the jacket.

    Thanks ladies! This makes me glad I took a risk this morning with the tights :)

  • TraceyLiz65 replied 4 years ago

    Love this color combo and agree the tights work well!  

  • cheryle (Dianthus) replied 4 years ago

    I like it.  I do think you could easily wear it with nude micro fishnets and it would look just as fab.  You wear skirts so well Amy.

    This is such a fantastic combination - love the colors together and I adore that soft printed blouse with the crisp blazer. I think the tights and booties look great with this. Don't change a thing - this is a winner!

  • kellygirl replied 4 years ago

    I think this is perfect. The black tights/shoes look like the right choice to me! (I know people on the forum like nude microfishnets but I'm in the camp that  find nude hose kind of weird.) 

  • Alassë replied 4 years ago

    I agree; the tights work!

  • kkards replied 4 years ago

    i would not change a thing! this looks great!

    Pretty!  Yup, another one that likes the tights. And, being that I'm on team pattern, I love your blouse.

  • Vickie KY replied 4 years ago

    YLF. I love how you put everything together.

    The colors are amazing on you! This looks great. You could also try textured tights that play off the pattern in the top, but I like this as is.

  • Diane G replied 4 years ago

    It all works a treat!

  • Neha replied 4 years ago

    I like it a lot! But I always prefer nude stockings to darker ones. This would work great for a formal/ evening-wear, where as lighter color tights would work for day-wear. Just my two cents.

  • citygirldc replied 4 years ago

    Lovely combination of yellow and black (or navy). I prefer darker tights to lighter but that's just me.

  • nancylee replied 4 years ago

    I love this look, Amy.  The tights really give it added drama.

  • Amy replied 4 years ago

    Thank you, ladies! I felt good in this all day, so it will be worth repeating.

  • Parsley replied 4 years ago

    Great outfit, Amy! You look dramatic and pretty.
    I think the tights work well, but if you feel like the contrast is too great you could always go for a slightly sheerer black version.

  • replied 4 years ago

    Wow, just seeing this now. Wonderful outfit -- I love all the details that meld together in this!

  • pil replied 4 years ago

    Beauteous, Amy!

  • lyn* replied 4 years ago

    HALLO. Need that skirt - is that a Halogen seamed skirt? :3

  • Amy replied 4 years ago

    Thank you!

    Lyn, yes, it's the halogen in golden raisin. You might try eBay.

  • Beth Ann replied 4 years ago

    Gorgeous!  This has your retro/feminine touches and a good dose of modern.  I think the dark tights are working well.  I'm looking for a couple of pairs that are semi-opaque, so they're a little see through, but heavier than black hose. 

    I also have the Munro's in Oxblood.  Luxurious and easy to wear, aren't they?

  • Neel replied 4 years ago

    Love this outfit!  You look beautiful!  And the shoes look sleek and chic.

  • Jeanie replied 4 years ago

    Very pretty colors on you!

  • Deborah replied 4 years ago

    Stunning!  I think this is one of my favourite outfits to date!  I think you could potentially wear nude hose without any adjustments to the outfit.  Lovely.

  • lyn67 replied 4 years ago

    Wow, this is very a very rich color scheme and beautiful outfit, totally in awe!
