Still so behind on the outfits...this one is from January! And it's MARCH! How did that happen? Beats me.
This outfit is not too exciting, but hey, I did say I'd show you my flops, right? Well, here is one. I think the ikat print and the blazer flaps/pockets/buttons clash a bit...a regular cardi next time?
Even though the top is a bit on the casual side, it goes well with black work pants. This chunky black necklace I found from a swap is a nice standout piece.
The blazer. Because the top is a little on the casual side, a cover-up was definitely needed. A cardigan (probably this one) would have been a much better bet. Or even a boyfriend cardi belted on the outside.
Although this was a flop, it did give me some ideas for next time!
Have you ever grabbed inspiration from a flop and turned it into something fab?
