Pink Chevrons for Spring
|First things first. Mirror's filthy. I know this. You would know (if you followed me on twitter) that I had planned to take shots of this—my first glorious-Spring OOTD after a long hiatus*—at work, as is my wont, but then realised that I had left my good shoes at home in my bag, hanging off the front door knob (inside, no theft worries) and had to instead wear my flats all day. Hows that for a run-on sentence... I'd like to say I have nothing against flats, but I do. I think they are only good in certain applications, and they RUINED this ensemble. So, I waited until I got home to take pictures. Which meant I had to take them in my filthy hall mirror, that you never realise is that dirty until you are about to post pics. *sigh*
Roast me if you must, but I am still posting them. This is sort of a Pin-to-Post, except I never really pinned the inspiration shot. Don't get me started on how much I love Rickis (call me). This outfit is an unabashed recreation of their latest 10-items-10-ways. Which I LOVE. I am the WORST at remixing my closet. But I thought I would give it a go, and I purchased almost everything on the list. Those things I didn't purchase, I already had (or a reasonable facsimile). The blazer that I am wearing is actually a last-season offering from AdditionElle (who I also love; call me!) Already had it, so I didn't have to buy the blazer that Rickis had on offer, but I've linked it in my polyvore set below. I love how versatile and wardrobe-staples-with-a-twist these pieces are! Pardon my French, but I am going to wear the SHIT out of these pieces!
Technically, my ensemble isn't in that list of 10 items, so this is the 11th way.
This outfit didn't require much creativity on my part, I will admit, but sometimes, you want to look good, without having to think about it too much!
Can't wait to recreate some of the other looks here!

*Winter killed me dudes! I think I might have seriously had some SAD disorder going on. Note to self: Don't leave husband in the winter... it's probably just the weather.
