The shoes are the star of this show, so I kept all the other elements simple and solid.
Limiting myself to one statement piece per look keeps down on visual overload.
On this day, I was attending a business meeting so professional and sophisticated was the image I was going for. Dressing for the occasion first and for the weather second is always my order of importance. I hate being cold, so I normally dress for what will be the coolest part of the day.
The clothing and necklace are old from Chico's. The bag is from Saks Off 5th. The shoes are by Guess via T.J.Maxx last year.
I love all the brown animal prints, but they are usually too golden to be worn near my face. Instead of a scarf or blouse, I choose shoes, bags and belts. I limit myself to one animal print item per look.
