DD's Style File - Retro Meets Modern

I fell in love with this top when I saw it hanging in the window. I snatched it up and couldn't wait to wear it. I gave it a run in early spring and wore it under a white cardigan, but felt rather "meh" about the results. It didn't look bad or anything, there just wasn't enough 'pop' to the look, it felt kind of safe.

Green pencil skirt - The Limited
Tan peep toes - Franco Sarto
Green sunnies - Boutique
Gold bracelet - JCPenney's
Fast forward a few months and I spot this green high waisted pencil skirt, and it was a love connection! The simple cut and deep, vibrant green felt was the perfect compliment to the dotted, ruffled bright blueness of the blouse. In order to not compete with everything above the ankles I stuck with my go to basic nude pump.

I also kept the jewelry simple with basic hoops and just a single gold bangle.

There was just something about this outfit that felt a little retro office, ladylike classic with the vivid colors giving a modern touch.

I hope you all had a fantabulous Monday!
