Old yet New in Pink and Blue

I have to dress rather formal for work; on the occasional Friday I can get away with good quality jeans (like these), combined with a jacket, but generally, it’s business attire. When getting my closet ready for spring a few weeks back, I found two hidden gems in both pink and blue that I had almost forgotten about.

Last year, I bought this very cute pink lace skirt; its length is great as it almost touches my knee, which I love. As it’s more of a spring/summer shade, it went on a hanger and I forgot about it. In winter, I lean more towards black / dark colors. It was a nice surprise to find it again as it almost feels like I have something new. Plus it gives me a great excuse to wear these great nude heels. 🙂

I also had this dark blue skirt that was catching dust in my closet, as I have hardly been it wearing lately. This one also has great length, touching my knee, so perfect for work, but I wasn’t inspired by it. Then I found this nice light blue striped Altuzarra shirt (I can JUST get away with the sleeve length!) at The Outnet that pairs perfectly with it. Add my latest chunky handbag, and I’m a happy girl in 50 shades of blue. Sounds to me like the perfect excuse to find a new pair of dark blue heels… 🙂

    That lace skirt is to die for! I love it when I forget about a clothing item and then rediscover it when rummaging through my closet. I really like the white top you paired with the lace skirt too. The way you styled the dark blue skirt is great too. Very nice that you were able to find some inspiration and wear it again.

      Thanks! 🙂 Sometimes inspiration is on the doorstep indeed, and just pairing something differently creates a whole new look.
