Citrine and Navy

Sweater: M+O cotton cashmere v-neck
Tank: American Apparel
Pants: J.Crew
Shoes: M+O
Necklace: J.Crew

I really wish I took this photo before I left for work this morning, instead of taking it after a long day. So my hair is a bit limp and I'm a tad shiny, oops. This is another outfit that I swear looks so much better in person, I feel like this looks very dumpy. This was the best I could do at 7:30 this morning, I hadn't really planned a work outfit and I had a very hard time making it out of bed on time today.

But I really like citrine and navy together, citrine is a color that has really grown on me. I thought it would be horrendous on me, but I found it to be flattering on a lot of different skintones. The shoes are grey textured peep toes, not the most comfortable shoe in the world but I love them, they remind me a bit of certain Loeffler Randall flats, without the crazy price tag (especially with my discount). The pants are ages old, but I love them, so comfortable. The necklace is actually a longer necklace that is wrapped around twice.

Even though I don't love this outfit, I've decided to post it anyway. Hopefully I have gained some insight after seeing this in a photo. And it will make me appreciate the outfits that I really enjoy wearing even more.

Close ups of the shoes and the necklace:


  1. I love this outfit! I know what you mean- citrine doesn't photograph well but it looks sooo good in real life!

  2. very cute color combo! I am afraid of this color, you have inspired me to take a 2nd look at it

  3. I just love these colors together. That necklace is beautiful!
