WIW: my favourite kind of outfit

There are some outfits that you could wear everyday for the rest of your life. For me, this outfit is one of them - shirt, blazer, jeans and oxfords plus my trusty satchel. What makes it special for me is the crisp lime of the shirt and the bright pink of my shoes and lips. For me, on the happiness scale, it was truly an 11 on 10!

I have worn this combo before - with a denim shirt (pic #3) and with red pants and a black t shirt instead of a shirt and jeans (pic #4).

What do you think? And what are your 'go to' outfits, the kind that you could wear everyday and still feel fabulous? :)

    You look fantastic in that lime green Kirti - and I love lime green with cobalt blue. Such a fab crisp colour combo. Everything fits you perfectly here and all works so well together. And I love your lipstick!

    My go to outfits almost always include a dress - I love them, find them easy to wear and feel fab.

    I hereby dub this........."The Kirti Formula." You look marvelous in both versions. I run "warm" in a climate that can only be described as "Chicago." These looks are more doable for me in Autumn -- but I'm be trying it then.

    Wonderful combination of colors! Love how your pink lipstick bookends your pink oxfords! I think this is such a winning combination for you. I love how you wear your blazers for "everyday" rather than thinking that they are just office-appropriate or something like that.

    And no wonder you feel so happy, this is a winning formula for you (and maybe I could borrow it next winter)? Your smile from ear to ear says it all: You Feel Fabulous! If Angie had worn a cross-body in the blog post today, she also would be wearing this formula. I like that you're trying this with woven shirts. I love the lime on you! You look terrific!

    This is a really fab formula for you! So simple, yet so versatile! I love the discovery of color, woven shirts and blazers!

    Shannon: Thank you! I am not a dress person, but I am hoping that over this summer, I will own and enjoy a few dresses.

    Beth Ann: I will wait to see your version! And thank you for giving it a name, feels so special :-)

    Thank you Jonesy! I love how blazers look on me so I just try to work them into my outfits. However, a lot of youngsters in France are now doing the same, only with jersey blazers. I think they might slowly be replacing hoodies or cardigans!

    Claire: You would look stunning in this style of outfit. And yeah, Angie and I posted similar outfits! SO cool :-D

    Thanks Isis! I am glad I discovered woven shirts!

    Kirti, I love this formula on you and agree that there's something about a blazer that adds polish to a favorite and casual outfit. Your color choices are beautiful, including the lipstick. It's interesting to hear about how French youngsters are wearing jersey blazers. Are those a bit more casual in their look, than a wool or cotton blazer, Kirti? I'm going to use your formula more often to give my own blazers some action.

    Really pretty! Outstanding green colour on you + outstanding blazer cut = winner.
    Bravo! You are very beautiful.

    To my eye, the sachel seems too long on you. Maybe it's just me though.

  • Kirti replied 10 years ago

    Thank you Vicki! I think it is the sweatshirt like stretchy material that is not as structured as a regular blazer makes these blazers less casual. I cannot wait to see you trying out this formula :-)

    Merci krishnidoux :-) I like this length actually, it is pretty comfy. But speaking only of proportions, a shorter length may suit me better.

  • kellygirl replied 10 years ago

    Beautiful. That is YOUR formula. You look fresh, pretty and polished! Great colors too.

  • catgirl replied 10 years ago

    You look fantastic and so HAPPY! This seems a little dressier than your other posts, but still very much you. That color is amazing on you.

  • christieanne replied 10 years ago

    It's a great formula for sure but the colors and fit take it up from average. I like your lipstick very much!

  • Kirti replied 10 years ago

    Thanks Kellygirl :-)

    Una: Thank you! I think the woven shirt and blazer combo is what adds to the dressier vibe, but it worked well for university!

    Thanks Christieanne! :-)

    For anyone who wants to know what colour lipstick this is - it is a colour called Shangri La from an online company called Fyrinnae. Applies like a glossy lipstick but is long lasting like a stain. I love it. :-)

    This is a winning formula! I love all of these outfits but that outfit in #4 just is my favorite! Jackets are kind of my favorite thing right now. I have several of the colored denim and and also have a number of the faux leather! I don't have many tops and pants or skirts yet but I am definitely building my jacket wardrobe.

    You have a great smile. Lime is my favorite color so I am loving that one and paired with pink is even better. This is a fantastic formula for you and you rock it in every color. I haven't owned a blazer in years but I think I might like to try a knit one.
