J.Crew Inspired Outfit

I always love seeing what new things J. Crew has come up with. However, I don’t typically save outfit images off the internet or catalogs for inspiration. It’s easier for me to find inspiration through bloggers. While flipping through the August catalog last week, one of the outfits in there caught my attention. J.Crew really knows how to take color. I honestly would never think to pair mustard & neon yellow together but somehow the combination totally works. I decided to use my favorite top at the moment and recreate this look. My outfit is a little bit more muted than the one in the catalog. I like it this way. It’s much more practical for my every day wear. What do you think about this outfit? Does the color combination work?





What I am wearing:
Top: LOFT Cotton Ruffle Front - size XXSP (buy here)
Skirt: c/o ShopRuche (buy similar here or here)
Belt: H&M - size XS (buy similar here - available in XS!)
Shoes: BR Jacky Platform Pump (buy similar here or here)

  1. Super cute Sydney! I would never think this would work either but it looks great! I feel guilty for keeping this top because it's so similar to my other 2 LOFT ruffle front cardis...but oh what the heck..its such a pretty color :)

  4. I really liked both the top and skirt when I saw them in your other posts. I would have never thought to pair these together, but it looks like you've got a winning combo right here!

  5. Your outfit is perfection! I like it better than the J.Crew picture. I read somewhere that this is how petites should wear clothes too...like keeping top and bottom same color family to help elongate the body. It must be true, since you look amazing. Again, I just adore that yellow skirt of yours!

  6. I love it! It's a great monochrome outfit. And I like the way that there are different variations of yellow, it's really chic. The necklace and ruffles and belt are really posh too.

  11. I love tone-on-tone, so this is a total winner in my book! The look has interest but it still keeps the body line slim and sleek!

    And oh J. Crew ... thank goodness they are going back to some good old fantastic styling!
