What NYC Recessionista Wears: royal hues

Yesterday was the first day that I put makeup on, did my hair, got dressed and left my house in five days … so I wanted to make it a good one 🙂

J. Crew earrings (similar) / LOFT blouse (similar) / J. Crew cardigan (similar) / Anthropologie bracelet (similar) / bracelets c/o Ann Taylor spring 2013 (here and here) / watch c/o Caravelle by Bulova (similar) / J. Crew pixie pant / J. Crew boots (similar)

I love that, under some lights, this blouse looks purple while under others it looks totally blue. It’s a very royal color 🙂

I never would’ve thought to pair this lavender cardigan with a deeper, darker purple blouse, but I love the contrast and how well they “go” together.
