8 Pieces, 8 Ways: Part 3 - Sensible Stylista

8 Pieces, 8 Ways: Part 3

I'm all about casual cool today on Sensible Stylista.  In case you're just tuning in, I'm currently tackling a fun style challenge on the blog.  I'm sure you can tell by the title, but this is (very obviously) look 3 of 8.  I've limited myself to 8 pieces of clothing, and they're all listed HERE for your viewing convenience. Although I'm not allowed to wear anything else, I'm letting myself accessorize with whatever's in my closet (bags, shoes, jewelry, etc.).  

For today's OOTD, I started with my graphic tee & cardi - that combo should look familiar because I wore it HERE for part 1.  However, instead of wearing jeans, I paired the set with my Talbots pencil skirt for a polished yet trendy vibe.  I belted it with a skinny belt - I'm not into wide designs lately - to highlight the small of my waist, drawing the eye upwards and creating the illusion of longer legs. Like before (in part 1), I kept things simple on the jewelry front.  In my opinion, this top's too "loud" for statement jewelry.  To finish off my look, I threw on my current fave heels (available here for $27 at Castro) and grabbed a chic, oversized tote to carry my life, ha.
In case you guys want to shop my look!
