Nothing To Wear But Clothes, To Keep One From Going Nude

I really don't own a lot of nude/blush tone clothing, but I absolutely love this blouse I received from Nina of Family Affairs when I visited her in September. It's the perfect layering piece and so neutral it goes with absolutely everything. When I put together this outfit I couldn't help wondering what the blouse would look like with a similarly toned skirt. I'll have to stay on the look-out for something suitable. Head-to-toe nude tones would be a total departure for me, but I do like to experiment a bit style-wise.
This outfit came together slowly, even laboriously, but ultimately I'm happy with the outcome. Every time I force myself into a skirt and shirt combination I convince myself I'm going to wear more separates...then laziness ensues and I merely reach for the nearest dress...
Outfit details:
secondhand hat
OPI nail polish

I love how the rich colors make this look very fall, even with bare legs!

Mae Lu said...

Such a chic, 60's contrast against the lush background.

It may be fall, but you seem so chic and timeless here.

I love the hat.

I hope your legs weren't freezing!

i love the print on that skirt! and your hat really pulls the whole outfit together. i am seriously lusting after those seychelles wedges.

Stop being so chic! Just stop it! It's not fair.

That hat is fantastic; it makes me think of - oh what's the name of that movie - it's from the same director as Sunset Blvd...hmm. Oh well. Sorry. My comparison sucked, but anyways, I love the hat and I love the blouse!

Kate said...

Bare legs! I am wearing mitts, hats, wool coats and boots! You look lovely, though, I love this skirt and those shooooes are gorgeous!

such a cute outfit! I love the shirt/skirt combination.

Shallow Mallow said...

I absolutely adore this outfit. The colours, the silhouette :) You look amazing!

Alex said...

I really like this "nude" colour on you (and the same goes for the similar coloured dress you have as well). I think that the nude tones you've chosen are more peach than beige, so instead of washing you out, they actually add a bit of colour.

I would LOVE to see a head to toe peach-nude outfit. I think it would make your hair POP!

Damsels said...

i dont really wear nude either. becuase i feel its too naked. but i love this blouse and the print of your skirt.

alison said...

perfect look! Nude tones usually scare me, but once you throw some rich tones in there, it looks great. Love the red hat and that skirt is so cute.

i love everything about this outfit! i think nude colors are so lovely but i hardly ever wear them. i am so envious of your gorgeous red hat and how well you pull them off- i could only wish to even try!

amberly said...

I love your back tattoos peeking from the blouse :) lovely outfit, Rebecca!! Sorry it was laborious to pick - it looks stunning! So, worth the work, eh? I want to try to search my closet for a similar look! Eee! I'll do that now...

What a cute fall outfit! Love the colours!

Sophi said...

The hat is the perfect touch! I think you always do a really great job with separates, but I always do think of dresses as "your thing." Either way, you always look beautiful :)

Sasmita said...

Rakel said...

You look gorgeous!

Marina said...

I love the little detail of your tattoos showing up through the blouse. Beautiful

bestie said...

This is an incredibly beautiful outfit, with equally-mesmerizing photos. That last one is quite endearing.

And can I just say, I'm kind of in love with the paleness of your legs. But maybe I'm crazy.

Rebecca said...

Gorgeous outfit I love your skirt and you have beautiful hair ♥ x
