What NYC Recessionista: Summer in winter

Yesterday I was desperately in search of some wardrobe inspiration when I noticed a very summery blouse in the back of my closet.

I remember back when I bought it, that it kind of reminded me of some of the outfits that Baby wears in Dirty Dancing.

I threw a cardigan over it and voila!  I guess the lesson here is, no matter how summery you think a piece is, try mixing it with some of your winter pieces and it might just work!

J. Crew earrings (similar here and here) / LOFT blouse (similar) / Gap cardigan / J. Crew pencil skirt (similar) / J. Crew bracelet (similar) / bracelet c/o Ann Taylor spring 2013 / watch c/o Caravelle by Bulova (similar) / J. Crew Factory tights (similar) / J. Crew boots (similar)

I even love how my new J. Crew earrings go perfectly with the gauzy top and the navy cardigan.

Even though it was a gloomy afternoon, I definitely felt like I was wearing some springtime!
