Conversation #138: Open to Interpretation (I love these!)

As part of Kayla's fashion challenge, she hosted another group Open to Interpretation.  I'm not sure why I find these to be so much fun, but I guess I just love to see all of the ways people fashioned the look for them.  Here is the inspiration from one Kayla via J.Crew (only one of my fave places):
 Now some lovely ladies interpreted the color, others the style and some both!  I really love this classic look.  I also realized while looking for my outfit that I only own two pencil skirts, navy and black, and that is sad because I love them (therefore I am going to pull out my sewing pattern for them and make some in colors!)  I also realized that I own a ton of cardigans and turtleneck sweaters, but very few crew necks.  Anyway, as you'll see below, I went with the shape for my inspiration and tried to throw in a bright color with my necklace (which I don't think my husband liked, but I don't often take fashion advice from him anyway).

Outift breakdown:
Sweater, J.Crew, $15
Blouse, Lands' End, $10 (? I really can't remember)
Skirt, Express via thrifted, $4 (and it has leopard print lining!)
Pumps, Lela Rose for Payless, $30
Necklace, J.Crew Factory online, $4

I actually really liked this look and probably wouldn't have layered this sweater like this because I miss the obvious sometimes so I'm glad I did!  I also really like my shoes, but sadly they rub a little on the side.  Hopefully that was just because this was their debut.  Oh, and lastly, can I say how weird it feels to be sporting bare legs in February?!  This is better than the same time last year when we had snow, ice, and COLD, but I wasn't quite ready for spring.  I guess I'm glad that the groundhog saw his shadow :)

Cute interpretation. And, love the husband comment. Mine dislikes a lot of my accessories, too.
