Handkerchief Shirt and Skinny Jeans

I’m wearing my gauzy handkerchief shirt again. I tried it out with shorts the first time I wore it. This time I layered it over a deep blue tank and paired it with skinny jeans. I love the way it moves. I also get to try the cropped-top look without feeling out of proportion or exposed.

Top: TJ Maxx
Tank: Charlotte Ruche
Jeans: JC Penney
Shoes: Payless
Sunglasses: Giant Vintage
Bracelets: Claire’s
Watch: Store at the airport

The thing I love about this top is that it has a myriad of colors in it (even colors that aren’t “supposed” to go together). So I can wear blue and red and purple accessories and the shirt pulls them all together. It’s also a pretty reasonably priced outfit (considering there’s not a single thrifted item on me today). No piece was over $15 and the entire outfit, accessories included) was $65.

What colors are you drawn to? Do you mix colors that “clash”?

  1. I spent my summer attracted to all things orange and purple (so yes, I do mix colours that clash!) and now that we are in winter I seem to have a crush on hot pink and turquoise! Perhaps my seasons are messed up as I originally come from the northern hemisphere! 🙂

    • It’s funny how you like “summer” colors in winter and visa versa. Maybe it is a hemisphere thing! I like green and purple together. That’s not really supposed to go either. Orange and purple sounds fun too! I’ll try that.

Let's chat! I love hearing from you:
