The Gipsy in My Soul

"As much as I love my job, office can look boring and dreary sometimes. Or even most of the time. That's why, in respect for my Creator and myself and my colleagues, I try to wear something cheerful to the office. As much as I can discipline myself to do it, that is."
LeeAnne, Style N Season
Some time ago peasant skirts and peasant style were all the rage. It just so happened that I've been having several pieces of those in my wardrobe for like forever, so I didn't need to buy anything to join the trend. Well, I guess now the trend has passed, but I still like the rather whimsical yet adorable patchwork skirts, so I decided to cut the skirt from ankle length to knee length so I have more options to wear them either on weekdays for work or on weekends to play.
Btw, I didn't realize that I lost a button on the ruffle white shirt. Luckily I always layer so there's nothing shown but the white tank top underneath! Also, even luckier, I managed to find the missing button, so I can just sew it on later!
At first I planned to combine the navy and white ensemble with 'safe' white bag and earrings, but then I thought: "Think pink!" and ended up with this look.
What do you think of the rather stark bold color combo of navy and shocking pink? Hoovering! Peasant skirt: old, cut off from ankle length to knee length. White ruffle shirt: Victoria's Secret (USA). Navy blazer: Anne Klein (USA). Bag: Guchi Collection. Earrings: Aldo. White sandals: Aily (Malaysia). Bracelets: from Jerusalem and Plaza Semanggi.
