Sometimes I will build an outfit starting with a new to me garment, other times inspired on another blogger's look, maybe a specific color scheme. It all depends on where I am going, what I am going to do or what I feel like. Other times it's just because
Today for instance, I built the look on a black canvas and added gold toned accessories with one theme in mind: animals. A pair of leopard print flats on my feet, big elephant pendant hanging from my neck. In my fingers: owl, giraffe and elephant stacked rings and even though you cannot see them, there are tiny bears on the side of my aviator sunglasses. 
How did you build today's look ? Please leave a link to it ;)

I don't have many really bright hued blazers in my closet, so it makes sense I fell for this vintage one a few months back. After this first wear I will try wearing it with white trousers, but afterwards I have no clue. What else would you pair this wool blazer with ?

Back in December I picked up this vintage skirt and blazer set. I bought it because of the blazer and my plans were to give the skirt away, but for some reason I didn't and said to myself I would give it a try wearing it as a set before letting go. So I did. 
The skirt was big and I had to roll it at the waist, therefore it was not comfortable to wear. I did not love it but I did no hate it either. Not heaven, not hell, it was purgatory.
So I am going to take the skirt in at the waist and try again. Because if you don't try, you don't know.
