I decided to break out my horse print top again for a fun way to "trot" through my busy Tuesday.  Instead of wearing it like a kimono top like last time, I just styled it like a normal blouse {but still had it carefully pinned with a safety pin as this shirt lacks any sort of buttons!}.  I stuck with neutrals for the majority of the outfit, combining a simple camel mini and tan pumps so that nothing would detract from the awesome-ness of the horsies.  But, for that last pop of color, I added in these new Amrita Singh earrings.  I love the beautiful red color and they're just large enough to be that perfect statement piece while still keeping the outfit classy enough for the office.  And just when I thought I had enough statement jewelry in my collection...  ;)

  1. Gorgeous outfit, Kileen. The colors are so pretty together. I really enjoying looking at pictures with statement earrings, but find it too cumbersome to wear. Same thing with statement necklaces. But I remember my son's comment the other day on dangly earrings I got for my daughter - "I like these better (compared to the studs), because I can see them.)
