Matchy-Matchy


dress: J.Crew Factory // cardigan: J.Crew // bag: Cambridge Satchel Company // scarf: vintage (also love this one) // bracelet: KJP // watch: Fossil // shoes: Nine West (old, similar) // claddagh ring: The Irish Jewelers (similar) // monogram necklace: Etsy // sunglasses: Amazon (dupes for the Karen Walker glasses

Lately, I've been making it my mission to get more use out of my silk neck scarves. I don't have a ton, but I love those that are a part of my collection and they don't get enough wear! My favorite way to wear them - other than around my neck, of course - has been wrapping them around the handle of my everyday bag, the navy satchel from Cambridge Satchel Co. It's such a classic, vintage-esque way to spice up a bag that otherwise looks the same day-to-day. This scarf came to me recently from my mom (thank you!), and I was immediately drawn to the simple pattern and the navy, white, and emerald color scheme. Apparently emerald has been on my mind, because I discovered that the scarf is the exact same shade as a new eyelet dress I picked up from J.Crew Factory.

I'm not always a fan of the matchy-matchy look, but I couldn't resist this pairing! I love the contrast between the stark white cardigan and bright green dress, and to avoid taking away from this color scheme I added simple nude flats. These are some of the oldest shoes in my wardrobe; they're from Nine West and I've worn them almost to death. It's hard to find this shade in shoes - not too warm-toned, and not too cool-toned. So, for now, these will remain my go-to pair until I'm able to find something that matches them in versatility.

Alright, let's backtrack for a moment and talk about this dress. This is another one of those pieces I saw at J.Crew in seasons past but missed out on. Well, this style showed up at J.Crew factory this year (in three colors!) and when it went on super sale I finally pulled the trigger. The flattering fit-and-flare cut, the eyelet lace detail and the button up front all come together to make this a must-have piece for summer. I love this gorgeous emerald (how many times have I mentioned emerald in this post haha), but it also comes in navy and white. I think the white, especially, would be a great addition to a summer wardrobe. I can also see this paired with a pretty belt at the waist to accentuate the flared skirt --- honestly, the options are totally endless. If you, like me, didn't scoop up one of these pieces last year, do so now!
