I’ve had this little made-up corny joke in my head all day after seeing myself in the mirror.

“Yellow. Owl You Doin’?”
“Oh, Spicy but a little Blue.”

Told you it was corny but it does sum up the outfit I wore to the office today. As soon as I knew I had to head in today I planned on wearing my No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Ultra Eyelet in Chili. (That would be the “Spicy”.) This was the first opportunity to wear it and I couldn’t decide which top to pair it with. It was either going to be the Stripe Sequin Tank with my Featherweight Cotton Cardigan in Yellow or my Lemon Liftoff Blouse (That would be the “Yellow. Owl You Doin’?”) with my Short-Sleeved V-Neck Cardigan in Navy (“a little Blue”).

At first I went with the Juliets in Poppy but they kept slipping off my feet so I switched them to my Simple 70 Louboutin’s in Navy. As you can see I went with the Lemon Liftoff Blouse and Navy Cardigan. I felt great and received soooo many compliments today in this outfit. The second pic was taken at the end of the day, when I got home, while the first was taken this morning. I had no idea my make-up really wore off that much by the end of the day. And no, your eyes are not deceiving you. My hair is different because I did stop and get a haircut at the end of the day. You’ll see it styled much better, soon.

Do you like this outfit with or without the blue?

I completely missed out on the Bubble necklace originally but was lucky enough to find a gray necklace on the JCA Exchange. J Crew has brought this back in Black and Modern Red.

Description from J Crew: We brought it back: the defining J.Crew statement necklace (it’s an icon) in 18K gold electroplated brass with hand-set resin cabochons and beads. Lobster clasp closure. Import. Length: 24″ with a 3″ extender chain for adjustable length.

Here it is IRL. I’m not sure if it is worth the $150 price tag. A pair of shoes or a pencil skirt, definitely. A necklace, umm…not so much. But, the Modern Red color is a gorgeous red. A true red in my opinion. I’ve seen the black in-store as well and it is just as pretty.  I’m on the fence with this one.

Next up is the Cashmere Lined Leather Gloves, in Holiday Punch.
The chicest way to keep cold weather from getting out of hand, in the softest, most supple Italian napa leather (luxuriously lined with cashmere). 

As soon as I saw this color I had to see it IRL as well. I ordered a size Large, which is a perfect fit. This is such a juicy, vibrant color. It comes in Black, Light Walnut and Celestial Blue, which looks just as gorgeous as the Holiday Punch. Both colors look like they will liven up a nice camel or black winter coat. The leather is soft and supple and the lining is comfortable and cozy.
Lastly, I have the Cafe’ Capri in Wool in Maraschino Cherry. As soon as this color popped up online I ordered them. They were back-ordered until last week and arrived Tuesday. They come in Black, Yacht Blue, Navy, Baked Citron, Bright Dahlia, Camel and Port Wine. 
I already have these in the Camel and ordered my normal size of 8 in J Crew pants. It was very hard to capture the true color of these pants. I am wearing them with the Juliet heels in Poppy and the Silk Polka Dot Tee. The heels are a bolder red, like the Bubble Necklace. The last picture was the best I could get with my point-and-shoot and standing about 15 feet away, zoomed in and flash on.

What do you think of these reds and pink? Are you interested in the Bubble Necklace this time around?
