Monochromatic Blue

Top: BCBG, similar
Skirt: Maje (I also like this one)
Necklace: Bauble Bar
Clutch: Banana Republic, old

I initially was going to share my spring wish list and the trends I'm most excited for for spring, but work got the better part of me today and it was just easier to share one of my new favorite outfits.  

I've wanted to try a monochromatic look for a while now as I've slowly been moving away from black and white (very slowly...).  I picked up this top and skirt a few weeks ago at the end of season sale at Bloomingdales and have been patiently waiting for it to warm up enough to wear them.  It may not really be warm enough yet, but I'm sick of winter, so I decided to bring them out.

Blue is growing on me as I've always been more of a pink person, but I loved the lace and peplum of this top and the beautiful color of this skirt.  The different textures break up the color nicely.  I paired them with my favorite pumps (I didn't show the back detail, but it is my favorite part of these shoes!) and my new favorite Bauble Bar necklace, which I get so many compliments on!  I added a jacket to make it slightly more work appropriate (my office is very casual and very fashion-forward) and if I got cold during the day (which always happens!).  I can't wait for it to get warmer to wear this outfit without the jacket.

I hope your week is going well!
