Outfit Of The Day (Yeah, We Up Up Up In The Clouds)

Did everyone have a good 4th? I sure did! Lots of goofing around, eating, relaxing, and listening to good music, mmhm.
I often get emails from readers requesting that I do a “Closet Must-Have” post. While I haven’t yet had time to sit down and draw up such a post (but I do have  a crumpled, 13-month old post-it note full of ideas to write about collecting dust sitting next to me, of course!), one of the top things for me is matching accessories. I have posted about it before, but I really like having similar-hued items because it makes pulling together an outfit quick and easy. Think belts, shoes, necklaces, bracelets, rings, and bags. 
J Crew is actually one of the best places to find these piece at, I’ve found, as they often produce belts and shoes in similar colors for every season. They are also great at bringing back old colors, and so I was super duper happy to find that the new Plume necklace matched my 3-year old dusty rose Perfect Patent pumps quite nicely. I am not sure if it’s the identical twin in me, or if it’s the Libra in me, or if it’s just the little bit of boring-and-lazy in me…but I always like to have a little bit of matchy-matchy-balance in outfits.
And it seems like every time that I go to snap these pics it’s around the exact same time for the super prompt and punctual 10-Minute Colorado Afternoon Thunderstorm to kick off …hence the flash/no flash weirdness happening here.  YOU GET THE IDEA:

Necklace: J Crew Pluma Pendant Necklace (similar style here) (and here for under $15) (and here)
Brown Bracelet Cuff: Forever 21 (similar style here)
Black Bracelet (not shown on arm w/ cuff): Gorjana Graham Bracelet (buy it here + take 20% off with code “toutie”)
Pumps: J Crew Perfect Patent Pumps in Dusty Rose (similar style here at J Crew) (and here, on sale!) (and here + take 30% off with code “EXTRA30”) (and here at Nine West)
Purse: Chloe Metallic Marcie in Gunmetal (similar style here) (and here)

    Gawgus!! I can't stop staring at the deer heads in the background. I kind of love them.


  • JustPatience

    Lovely outfit as usual Chloe. I see the deer head are still chilling on the sofa :)

    So funny Chloe… I bought those shoes after all the amazing pictures you posted last year. Then oddly, I must have been channeling my inner YOU – I bought this necklace the day it hit my store and thought of those shoes immediately. I wore this combo already, and it's lovely. Thanks for your spin on on the lovely duo.

  • A Fine Balance

    Always – you have such elegance and style and grace in your photos! you pull of so many wonderful outfits and this is not anything less than what I have seen you wear!


  • Eden

    I just found your blog! Absolutely love all of your outfits! Great inspiration for me to get out of my slump and dress up a bit! :)

    xox, eden

  • Elaine A (TOBeautyReviews)

    Wow Chloe you wear short skirts so well! I think we're the same height and our measurments are similar but I'm always self conscious of my legs :P

    I really love this whole entire outfit (as I usually do with your outfits!) I think I need to search out a really wide belt like yours, seems to add so much "oomph" to an outfit!

  • Jenn

    I'm really no good at matching accessories to my outfits. But I'm trying. You do it perfectly, though. I love the color of your skirt. I need to add a piece of that color into my wardrobe.

    Complex Cardigans

  • Stacey

    Such a pretty skirt! I love how you're always so put together! Love the new necklaces and the old shoes :)



  • Tara

    Love this skirt….it is an amazing color! That necklace and belt look awesome with it!

  • RosaLovesDC

    You look so chic in this outfit lady!

  • Beautygirl24

    I'm also kicking myself for missing out on that skirt! I don't follow J Crew too closely because it isn't at my local mall. So when i get the chance to make a trip, I don't find what I'm looking for. Booo! But you look amazing Chloe, love the whole look.

  • B.Inspired

    I love that belt! Every time you wear it…I want to make a trip to Urban Outfitters in hopes of getting it, but I am pretty sure it is long gone!

  • Mrs. T

    GOOOORGGEEOUS!! :) I swear you never have a hair out of place! Grrr

  • Mrs. April

  • Sheridan

    I love this outfit, especially the top and the belt :)


  • PetiteAsianGirl

    I'm kicking myself for having missed out on that J.Crew skirt in … was it "bronzed ochre" ? And the cardigan you have in the same color. Sigh!

  • Daydreamer

    'dorable as usual…really love the belt and skirt!

  • Natalie

    Obsessed with this outfit, it looks so put together and perfect! Need that skirt and necklace.
