Its already been a while since Angie posted about the biz casual capsule in ink blue and white that she created for her client, but it never left my mind. I adore almost any shade and blue, and adding white and cream makes blue even more fab. Just think about blue and white china/porcelain.

Earlier this week I picked up a new top in black, blue and white, and it inspired me to create a capsule inspired by Angie's, but more smart casual than biz casual because that is more me. You might have seen a sneak peek in another thread.

There's nothing new here except for the top, so this is basically SYC. Some of these are from earlier this season, some are older, and some are thrift finds. My capsule consists of the following pieces:

White slim jeans
Cream accordion pleated midi skirt

"Ikat" patterned top in blue, black and white
Navy sleeveless top
Mid tone blue silk tee
Cream lace shell/top

Navy and black jacket in corduroy
White slightly oversized blazer

A navy dress

Shoes, belt & bags:
Mid tone blue pointy toe wedges
Metallic kitten heel pointy toe pumps
Stone suede booties
Cream satchel
Black laptop bag with blue piping
Navy belt

I would highly appreciate comments on the following:

Proportions? I've tried a variety of tucking/untucking, and the length of the toppers are also a concern.
The white blazer - does it really work?
What combinations do you like best, and why?

Thank you for looking!
