Neutral Territory

Tank: thrifted
Camisole underneath: Nordstrom
Skirt: Fei from Anthropologie
Belt: thrifted
Shoes: thrifted

For some reason I felt compelled to put this cream lace tank and khaki skirt together for a neutrals outfit as I was going through my closet this morning. It’s kind of different for me and made no sense for the weather since we’re experiencing typical California “June gloom” right now, but I decided that was okay because afterward I changed out of this outfit into jeans and a sweater to go hiking with Jasen. So, yeah, I totally did not wear this outfit for more than an hour today. I will be wearing it in the future, though, because I like how it turned out.

Do you tend to plan outfits ahead of time, or do you like to choose what you’re wearing at the last minute? I’m not much of a planner, although when I buy something I’ll imagine outfits I can wear it in. For the most part, I like to choose my outfit on the morning of the day I’m going to wear it. It has to feel right for that particular day. If I’m in a hurry, I’ll repeat a previous outfit...which is a lot easier to do now that I have this blog to remind me of most of the outfits I’ve worn. 


  1. in life i am a big planner, but i can't plan my outfits. i love this skirt and lace top with the pops of red. very pretty.

  2. This look is rally sweet! Like the lace cami :)

    I don't plan outfits ahead so much but sometimes I get an idea and keep it for the perfect occasion and/or location ;)


  3. That lace top is so pretty, and I love the neutral colors and textures you picked with the traces of bright red. This is one of my favorites!

  4. I cant plan my outfits ahead its all to hard and it all depends on your mood and on if your having a fat day or not. The red in this outfit makes it pop I love it.

  5. Loving the lace!!

  6. I plan outfits, sometimes a week ahead of time. They usually look great paired together on the hangers and then a disaster on me. I feel the best outfits are usually those off the cuff ones. As long as you aren't running late, that is.

  7. I'm a new follower, I'm so glad I found your blog! Your style is lovely, and the pictures from your recent trip are amazing!

  8. Very feminine outfit. The lace tank is wonderful and seems like it can be really versatile. I need a piece like that!

    As for my outfit planning...I think about outfits while I try to go to sleep. When I wake up the next day I test it out, sometimes it's wonderful and sometimes I wonder what the heck I was thinking. Ha.

  9. I love the pops of red in this otherwise neutral outfit. I don't usually plan my outfits, but occassionally I do. I like to plan them when I'm going on a trip so I don't pack too much, though!
