Soft Colors (For a Change)

Hi Everyone!

When Angie wrote about open knit sweaters recently, I realized I had one in my closet that was waiting to be worn. So I built an outfit around it and this is what I came up with. I have a couple more ideas ideas for it that I want to try while the temperature is still below 90. I'm also making an effort to wear my light pink skinny jeans as much as possible before I have to put them away until November. The necklace is one I bought last year for a friend's wedding and haven't worn much since. I guess I'm digging deep in my closet right now. I wore this outfit to a meeting last Tuesday and got a lot of compliments on my shoes, which was really sweet. : )

Thanks everyone! All comments and suggestions are appreciated. : )

Sweater: Cynthia Rowley (via TJ Maxx)
Denim: J Brand
Shoes: Seychelles
Bag: Anthropologie
Necklace: J. Crew

    OMG, this is a fabulous outfit Ana! I love your hair all gamine and piece-y too. Those red pumps are TDF and the open weave sweater looks cool and glamorous with the skinnies. Love the bag and necklace too. This is the perfect time of year to be wearing light pants and sweaters that require a cami. You are doing such a good job of prolonging your spring season. I'm attempting to do the same. :)

    Such a subtle colour combo, and the necklace is to die for! Very very good job, Ana! Love!

    This is absolutely stunning Ana! I love the softness of the outfit and that necklace is beautiful with the sweater. Then you have that delicious pop of colour on your feet just to spice it up a bit. Yep...lovin' this look!

    I love your style, Ana. This is simply elegant and chic. Gorgeous sweater, bonus that you got it from TJMaxx (it looks very expensive) and the necklace is the perfect accessory!

    You look lovely, Ana! Your haircut is so perfect.

    Charming outfit!You look totally irresistible in this, no wonder people gave you compliments, even if it was on the shoes.

    You look stunning! I love the softness of it. The necklace is great and your haircut is just perfect with it!

    Well you know what I'm going to say? Fab. I always look to your for inspiration.

  • Lori replied 10 years ago

    This outfit is so simple and fabulous, so much so, that I may just have to copy it! I have all the elements, and it may just work as a casual Friday outfit for me. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • Sarah A replied 10 years ago

    the gray with the pale pink then RED SHOES! Awesome. love mixing the statement necklace in with a simple profile... like others, i find your posts to be great inspiration too!

  • rae replied 10 years ago

    You look so pretty, Ana! The gamine thing is so great on you - love the top with the blush jeans!

  • velvetychocolate replied 10 years ago

    Wow - this is gorgeous! I love the softer colours and the necklace with that sweater is amazing. The haircut is very pretty too - love it!

  • Laura replied 10 years ago

    White and silver are so, so pretty together. The shine of the sweater and necklace make this feel dressy - but yet, the jeans take it down a notch. You are inspiring me to break out my silver ballet flats to wear with my white jeans. Thank you for the spark!

  • Meredith1953 replied 10 years ago

    This is such a lovely PERFECT outfit! From your gamine hair, down to the beautiful shoes. Just lovely and very Parisian chic!

  • Sona replied 10 years ago

    amazing combo. simple yet so, so chic!!

  • Heather replied 10 years ago

    Simply stunning, Ana.

  • Ana replied 10 years ago

    Thank you so much for the comments and encouragement, everyone! You all are great! And thanks for noticing the haircut, too. I chopped it in anticipation of the hot weather. I was just thinking that it's getting too long! It's grown out a little bit now and I think I like the top a little longer. It's starting to curl and that's good because it will get curly when it gets more hot and humid. The back definitely needs a trim. Luckily I'm headed into the hairstylist's on Thursday. :D

    Carole, CityGirlDC, Lori, SarahA, Laura, I'm honored that my outfits inspire you! I take that as a huge compliment. And feel free to copy away. I love seeing how everyone interprets the same look. :)

  • MsMary replied 10 years ago

    Wow, Ana! This outfit is out of this world! What a beautiful sweater! And the necklace is oh so fab! And of course you know I love those bright shoes!

  • san replied 10 years ago

    I love this outfit Ana and your hair. The silver sweater looks so pretty with the silver necklace. I also love the red shoes with the pale pink jeans. You look great from head to toe.

  • Jonesy replied 10 years ago

    You look wonderful! I love how wearing neutrals can allow the textures and accessories to really shine, and the shoes really add some spark here. I think your hair is too-cute!

  • Mona replied 10 years ago

    Such a fresh and summery combo!

  • ironkurtin replied 10 years ago

    You are too cute in this! Seriously darling.

  • Aida replied 10 years ago

    Ooooh I love how the blush looks paired with gray! Such a great soft but slightly unexpected pairing. FAB sweater, now that's an open-knit sweater I can get behind! You look lovely Ana :D

  • Sveta replied 10 years ago

    The jeans look white on my screen but I adore grey and pink colors together, they are such a chic combination!
    The bright shoes and bold necklace add just the right amount of interest - PERFECT, Ana!

  • Jenava replied 10 years ago

    I love this! The necklace really makes it special.

  • ManidipaM replied 10 years ago

    Exquisite! Pastels, but in very bold combo of pink with red and grey! That necklace is gorgeous --- and so's your starting-to-curl hair!

  • Deborah replied 10 years ago

    I think I may be speachless! This is a beautiful combination. Everything here is perfect. And that necklace just took my breath away. Lovely.

  • Ana replied 10 years ago

    Thank you so much, everyone! : )

  • Laura replied 10 years ago

    Wait, I just saw San's comment and noticed that those jeans are pale pink! (I thought they were white). Now I love this outfit even more. You are getting to be quite the accomplished stylist, Ana :)

  • Ana replied 10 years ago

    Wow, thank you Laura! :)

  • CocoLion replied 10 years ago

    I always check your outfits for hot weather dressing tips. (Coming soon here...)

    Awesomely chic Ana! And you look tiny (in a good way).

  • modgrl replied 10 years ago
