Style Diary: Tracy Reese Skirt and Ann Taylor Top

My mom fell in love with this Tracy Reese floral skirt on one of her many NYC visits, bought it for herself then couldn’t figure out what to wear with it.  In desperation and guilt, she gave it up and transferred the challenge over to me.

Here I am wearing it with a chambray, button-down shirt from Ann Taylor.

I thought that the leopard printed purse and shoes added a nice mix of patterns.  And I chose the lucite and silver necklace because I needed something simple and liked that it didn’t add any other color to this clash of patterns and color.  This was my casual work outfit.  What do you think?

Style Diary: 1 Ann Taylor cardigan, 3ways

To prevent getting bored of my clothes, I’m always challenging myself to never wear the same outfit twice.  So similar to other posts on how to wear   1shirt, 3ways,  1dress, 3ways     1zara skirt, 3ways  and most recently, 1 red skirt 5ways, here is 1 Ann Taylor cardigan 3 ways!

I love the contrast grey sparkle trim which to me, made the chocolate cardigan from Ann Taylor worth the buy.   Here I wore it for work with a shiny dress by Averly that I bought at Lord & Taylor last year.  I cinched it with an old Gucci belt and wore some edgy heels by Fergie to set the whole conservative look off.

This disco ball of a dress is by Calvin Klein – found for a steal at Marshall’s.  the tights and bracelet are from Ann Taylor loft and the shoes are Miss Sixty – I love the exposed zipper detail in the back.  The fur detachable coat that I wrote about here is by Tibi from Saks and the purse is Prada from Saks.

My 3rd and final outfit for work is the same Ann Taylor cardigan this time worn over the only Anna Sui item I own, a tweed dress bought at Target.  I accessorized the look with my fur purse written about here a Kate Spade necklace that my husband surprised me with and my heels bought from Saks.

What’s your favorite outfit?
