undone prep/hot pink chic

In my continual effort to wear the unworn in my closet, this morning was a lesson in layering. These linen shorts are perfect for Miami weather and an oxford with cardigan on top is just about pushing it as for as layering for comfort goes…it’s HOT. My office, however, is cold. There lies the difference between what I wear to work and what I wear on the weekends, in a nutshell.

I like how little touches like leaving half the shirt untucked and the addition of chunky jewelry can loosen up the otherwise stiff feel of cardigans. Of course, hot pink does a great job of injecting life/youth into most any look. Also I am LOVING my new Gucci sunglasses. They remind me of my go-to pair of Tod’s shades, but in black.

    I love this outfit, but I have a hard time color blocking. Could you give me some tips on how to make this style look better on me?
