Less Than The Sum Of Its Parts

This is one of those outfits where I liked the individual components, but somehow they never became a cohesive whole. I liked this shirt with these jeans, I liked the color combination of navy + light blue + pink, and I liked the owl brooch peeking out of the shirt pocket (I was inspired by these shirts – even though my owl isn’t hiding anything :P). And yet the whole outfit was just one big “MEH”. Maybe it’s the shoes. Something lighter – like sandals, maybe – would bring this together better. Next time!

    What a cute idea to wear your owl pin peeking out of your shirt pocket!

    Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style

  4. I think it feels top-heavy since the top is so dark and the jeans and shoes are so light. But, you’re right, each component individually works!
