Playing With Neutrals

So many fun pieces with this outfit. First, I really am in love with this Kate Spade bag. It’s girly but structured, and there’s not a ton going on–all of which I am a huge fan. Second, I’ve been searching for ankle boots all winter long. I have tried so many pairs, and returned them all. I finally found this pair at DSW and they are exactly what I was looking for. They are comfortable and easy to walk in, thanks to the wedge heel, and they’ll be perfect with jeans, dress pants, and tights. Last, this vest. I have had it for years; it was my first-ever purchase from ModCloth and it tops my list of favorite items of clothing. The ruffles are feminine but not over the top and the length is perfect for dresses. Under it all, a classic shirt dress in a neutral tone that I found a few years back at TJ Maxx.
