Que Bella – Recent Wears

Here are a few OOTDs from this week.

Monday – Valentine’s Day – Honestly, Husband and I decided long ago to not celebrate. It’s nice to receive flowers and cards and chocolate but I’d rather have them on a day where he doesn’t seem like he’s forced to do it. Just make it random. Of course, that didn’t stop me from buying a card and for he and The Boy, along with making a nice dinner and having some wine.

Blouse/Corset: Polynya Corset Top in Black Anthropologie
Cardigan: J Crew Factory Store in Dark Peony (I think – DPE)
Skirt: JC Ripple Stripe Pencil Skirt in Black (6)
Shoes: JC Penelope in Black

Tuesday – Shopping with Husband for his Vegas trip. We had some beautiful, 75 degree weather that day.

Blouse: J Crew Silk Sequin Scoopneck – Size Small (look for popbacks)
Jeans: JC Ankle Stretch Toothpick in Cherish Wash – Size 30
Shoes: Prada Leopard Flats

Wednesday in the office – Such a gorgeous dress and it feels great on. It makes me feel great! I was looking for a cardigan to go over it and thought of a lime green or mint color. But then I walked into J Crew and saw the Warm Buttercup Jackie was a PERFECT PERFECT match!

Dress: Take Action by Girls from Savoy Anthropologie – Size 6
Cardigan: J Crew Jackie in Warm Buttercup – Size M
Shoes: J Crew Joley in Twig (I think)

See what I mean!

Have a great evening!

    Love the Take Action and cardi on you! I'm thinking of getting this dress. When I tried it on, it was very staticy. Do you find it that way IRL?

    I'm loving the skirt you wore on Monday, and the Take Action Dress. The colors of the dress are so perfect for spring!!

    I love that silk sequin scoopneck. Am embarrassed to admit I have it in the olive and the cream….

    (admitting you have a problem is the first step, right????)

    The pencil skirt is beautiful and I love the colours you've paired it with.

    Holly – I found it to be staticy when I tried it on too but I didn't have any problems wearing it all day.

    Kelly – Thanks! You are right about the colors.

    Chic Chauffeur – I love the purple one and it took a lot of strength not to get the cream and olive colors too.

    Liz – Thanks!

    Tabitha – Thank you!

    I, too, love the Take Action dress and cardigan on you. I have them both, but you look incredible in them!

    Thanks, always, for sharing and posting pics. I appreciate it. 🙂

    thanks for posting these pics…the Take Action with the Warm Buttercup Jackie combo is EXACTLY what I had in mind when I got the Take Action dress-they do match quite perfectly! Now to order the cardigan…
