This time of year, we're all dragging our feet when it comes to our closets. Everything feels pretty ho-hum and neutral. I wore an outfit to church last weekend and received lots of compliments - simply because I had some colour mixed in with my neutrals. I can't even remember what I had on, just the fact that I had colour compliments. All a grey/brown/black ensemble needs is a hit or two of colour to bring a little sunshine into your day! Today's Polyvore Loves outfit reflects that belief.
Today's outfit is based entirely on Ruche products. Have I ever confessed my love for Ruche? I am a serious website stalker - I check their new arrivals several times a week. I've been putting off ordering anything but I may have to cave very soon. Ruche has great prices for Canadian shipping which is a real plus - since most companies have brutal shipping policies. Their ladylike, modern-vintage style is modest and classy, yet tastefully stylish and fun. There's a little something for everyone!
Ready to take a peek at the outfit? Okay, here we go- enjoy!

I chose a classic A-line belted grey skirt - dressed up here, but it could also be worn with a white tee and a statement necklace. The bow-neck blouse (tucked in, of course) is in my favourite colour, and wouldn't it be cute with a pair of trouser jeans, too? The shoes are perfection... can't go wrong with a good mary jane. The mint green ring provides another pop of colour, and the clutch looks a lot more expensive than it's $31 price tag.
You could were this ensemble to a brunch with some girlfriends or even to a more formal event. It would be cute to wear if you work in a business-casual environment. Toss on a sharp-looking blazer and you're good to go... and slip a pair of flats into your bag, too, just in case.
