Guys – I think this may be my favorite dress silhouette.  I picked this dress up for a song on RueLaLa last year, and I have a feeling it will be getting major play this season.  It makes me feel like a cute little 1950s housewife… minus that whole bit about staying home all day and laboriously pouring over my domestic duties.

Closet Confection: Put a Bird on It {Printed Pencil Skirt}

{H&M Jacket and Skirt, Zara Shirt and Shoes, Forever 21 Sunglasses}

True story: I bought this skirt last year after having one too many glasses of wine at an after-work cocktail party on a whim and never actually got around to wearing it.  As it turns out, a neon green pencil skirt with purple parrots wasn’t as versatile as I thought it would be, and I had absolutely nothing in my wardrobe to pair with it.  Who would’ve thunk?!

As luck would have it, I chanced upon a this top at my home-away-from-home on the clearance rack.  It turned out to be a match made in heaven.  And now my skirt gets to see the light of day.

Closet Confection: Black & White

I wore pretty much the exact same outfit back in 2011, and I love it just as much now as I did back then.  And whoa nelly… can you believe I’ve had this F21 blouse for going on 6 years now?!  Hmmmph, “throwaway fashion”, my right heel!

This time around, I resisted the urge to mix in bright red accessories (although I did cave a little with the lipstick) and instead played up the bold graphic simplicity of this ensemble.  In any case, I’m pretty pleased with how this look came together.
