Here are two work outfits that were created by the lovely ladies of YLF. I solicited outfit requests/suggestions in this thread:
And I tried out some of the recommendations for casual looks here:
And another suggestion for work here:
I got a lot of requests for the Missoni for Target blouses and the EmersonMade Bee blouse, so I tried to combine all of the suggestions for each blouse into a single outfit. It's interesting that each suggested outfit was different and yet I could see the style of the person who recommended it in the outfit suggestion--I could totally see them wearing that combination. I think it was a lot of fun to synthesize all the various recommendations into a new outfit, that still feels very me! A successful YLF group project!
PS I am trying out a new spot for self-timer pics. What do you think, is this any better than my usual mirror pics? I feel like the lighting is a bit off. And i had to crop and color correct the pics, so it's a little more work than the mirror pics. Which looks better, #5 (bathroom w/ self timer) or #6 (closet mirror)?
1-4. Rita suggested pairing Dotty with the Missoni blouse. Velvetychocolate recommended white jeans, but I went with ivory instead to match Dotty. Aren't the fishbow pumps and Dotty a match made in heaven? So are Dotty and the Kate Spade trench (the black buttons echo the polka dots on the bag). And which topper do you prefer: Tulle raspberry blazer or Kate Spade Topliner trench?

Marc by Marc Jacobs Dotty snake bag
Tulle raspberry blazer

5-8. MaryK (who is my bee blouse twin) suggested pairing the bee blouse with the yellow rose Anthro skirt (which Manidipa also wanted to see). Zap suggested pairing the blouse with the cognac jacket. I added turquoise earrings to echo the turquoise clutch Zap had also suggested, but of course I had to break out my new yellow bag instead! Diana and Zap also suggested wearing the ankle boots. And Diana also suggested a belt, so I went with her favorite leaf belt. I really like the combination of bees, flowers and leaves in this outfit...what a fun theme! Hope the pussy bow blouse, midi skirt and ankle bootie combination doesn't look too dowdy on me...I think I can still get away with the 70's librarian look if it's intentional, right? :)
