Closet Staples

The plaid shirt and orange Maggie London dress are staples in my closet...
 

In fact, they are such old staples that I found a hole in the armpit of the shirt, of course after I'd already gotten to work.  (In central Texas you can go just about anywhere in a shirt with pearl snaps.)  Why I've never paired it with this dress before today is a mystery to me.  (The bf would remind me that blue and orange are complimentary colors and will always work together.)  Perhaps it's the boots, a recent acquisition, that pulls it all together for me... 

Originally they had red and brown laces in them (you can sort of see the holes,) but I liked them much more after I took them out...especially since they were only about $20 on super sale!  Hmmm...is it true that the shoes make the outfit?

This is a really cute combo. I never would have thought to pair the two together, so don't feel bad for not thinking of it before now. It looks cute now and that's all that matters! ;)

Shoes or not, I LOVE this outfit - the colors work beautifully together. But I must admit...those boots are pretty awesome! :)

So true about orange and blue. That's a color combo I need to wear more often.
