Matchy-Matchy

I when I realized that the tan and mustard clutch matched my tan blazer and mustard blouse perfectly, I thought it was a bit too much, so I figured I'd just hold the navy bag I've been using as my camera bag instead. Unfortunately, it was also a perfect match for my jeans...

I'm pretty pleased to see so many of my thrifted items together; the new shirt is a few sizes too big, but tucked in and hidden under a blazer, you'd never know.

The bracelet is from a new shop I just discovered called Cinderella's Attic. It's a longer drive than my usual haunts, but nevertheless, I'm sure I'll be back again soon.

So which matchy bag do you think looks better, anyway?

  6. The clutch is the best matchy-matchy!
    In my brain, matchy-matchy is only a problem when you limit yourself to two colors.

  15. The Lorena before the blog would have gone matchy matchy, today I go for the blue :)

  16. Love the whole look together! Its so fresh and clean. You know I love the little yellow bag! But this time I think the other one may be better, but it depends if you need a big bag or a small bag for the day, as either work!

  17. I actually like the matching bag better! But, then again, I'm a huge fan of tan and neutrals so maybe I am biased. ;) Loving the shoes, too. Perfect ensemble!

  18. I'm always so impressed with your ability to find nice, well-fitting jackets. It's a great outfit!

  19. I like the yellow and tan bag! The blue is nice but I like the good ol' pop of color the yellow one brings. Love the bracelet as well...I've been getting more and more into jewelry lately. Oh, I bought an antler ring through Gilt the other day...can't wait for it to come!

  20. my vote is for the navy bag but both really work well. Have a fantastic weekend (I hear the weather is supposed to be kinda warm...woo hoo)

  21. I love all these little nautical pieces you have. They're all so cute. The only slightly nautical thing I have is my crab necklace now. Getting there...

    I rather like your outfit with either purse! Matchy matchy is fun. I think I like the fringe purse just because it's so darn cool how it perfectly matches your upper! The mustard and camel together are so nice.

    This outfit is gorgeous...so chic. And I love the bold yet basic colors!

  32. This new shirt is awesome, and who cares if everything's matchy? I like it all :) Maybe if I'm brave I'll go take photos in the middle of town tomorrow... but probably not.

    Sorry I haven't been around much lately-- the internet's out in my building. Ugh.

  48. Ooo i love this look! I do not like "matchy matchy" when it crosses a certain point.. but I think that both of these looks are well before that point and look great :)
