Isn't it the best when you discover something so great and you feel like none of your friends probably know about it yet and so when you tell them you are going to be, like, their hero? Well thats how I feel right now as I introduce you to *drumroll please* Gretchen Scott Designs!
I first found this brand on Instagram and fell in love with their classic yet modern patterns and styles. I always describe my style as modern traditional (why yes that IS an oxymoron!) and this brand does it perfectly.
Since graduating in May, I have been in the professional world. Now I thought I had a rather large professional wardrobe (especially for someone just starting out!) but after just a few months I feel like all I do is wear the same stuff each week! So these two new tops were like a breath of fresh air into my closet! I am just now realizing they are kind of inverses of each other - patterned top and plain skirt, then plain top and patterned skirt. Funny!
Hope you enjoy these two examples of how to rock neutrals (oh and also enjoy the photos, somehow this shoot ended up being more outtakes than actual good shots #bloggerproblems)
First up is the Boyfriend Shirt in Solstice.
I paired it with a tan pencil skirt and nude heels, making this top the clear star of this look!
I love the detail of every piece by Gretchen Scott, roll up the sleeves for stripes! Pairing a really busy top like this with a solid shirt and shoes makes it office appropriate.
I LOVE this skirt! It is Aqua from Bloomingdales and it has pockets!! The only problem is I never had a great top to go with it, until now.
This ¾ length sleeve Grosgrain Heaven Blouse is so easy and can go with anything! I want it in every color, again the details are so stunning.
I love twirling in this skirt too! Although twirling (or walking, standing, etc.) in heels is a challenge for me!
P.S. That whole thing about nude heels making your legs look long - TRUE!
Don't forget to Sparkle!
