What NYC Recessionista Wears: berry bold stripes

Very rarely do I wear a bright berry color like this … but this top was so vibrant and fun I just had to have it.

Earrings by NansGlam on Etsy (similar) / J. Crew bubble necklace (similar) / LOFT striped topmoon and star cuff (similar here and here) / watch c/o Caravelle by Bulova / Gap skinny pants (similar) / Madewell sandals

I figured that, as a nice contrast, I’d pair it with my pale lilac bubble necklace … and my khaki green cropped pants that totally become a neutral against these bold colors.

In some lights, the shirt looks almost purple, but in the sun it shines like a gorgeous magenta.

Next I think I’ll try pairing this top with a printed skirt!
