Today I debuted a top that I finished a few days ago, and since I was walking to the hair salon, I broke out my new cross-body bag.

The outfit (worn for a day off): black skinny jeans (Eileen Fisher); floral lace knit top in reds, black, light olive, and ivory, with twisted seams and asymmetric hem (made by me), worn over black layering tee (Tees by Tina); black oxfords (Josef Seibel, Tina); olive jacket (Laundry by Shelli Segal); black cross-body bag with brown reptile print (Aimee Kestenberg).

When I finished the top, I wasn't sure I would wear it, but I kind of like it this way. I think it requires skinny pants, so that I can wear it tucked out. Or maybe a pencil skirt, though I rarely wear those.

Also, I'm continuing to experiment with showing a little ankle with these oxfords. I like them with these black jeans. What do you think?

Thoughts and suggestions welcome. Thanks for looking!
