Remember how I mentioned I plan out my outfits for weeks in advance?  Well, sometimes you put on the outfit you planned and it just isn’t doing it for you.  This is one of those times.  I tried this on with a black pencil skirt, black pants, and this purple skirt and didn’t love any of them.  But in the end I decided to go with the purple skirt since it was the least “expected” option.

There’s a lot going on with this outfit.  The shirt is lace.  The cardigan is printed.  The skirt is a bold color.  I’m thinking now that I see this outfit put together that it would look better with a bare leg and a nude pump.  The black tights are too heavy for the top of the outfit leading it to be unbalance.  Otherwise, though, I think I like the mixture of textures, patterns and colors.  Just not with the black on bottom.

What do you think?
