Some days you want to be noticed and other days, you prefer a more subtle outfit. That doesn’t mean you want to fade into the scenery, but you want to make less of a statement while still looking nice. Today’s ootd is just that. A soft and muted outfit with a little shine, and a little flow.

Clothes and the colors we wear have a strong influence over the way other people perceive us. They also influence how we think and feel about ourselves. Softer, muted colors leave a quiet impression and feel gentle to wear.
It’s funny, but the website describes this wrap as bold, yet I find it soft and muted. It makes a gentle statement to me, perhaps because I’ve paired it with quiet colors. I like that this ruana has stitched openings to put your arms through because it helps it stay in place better than wraps with no structure. It’s a muted blend of warm and cool tones so it would flatter many women’s complexion.
It has some soft animal print, mixed with soft sage and what they describe as a status print, which I take to mean patterns you would see on designer scarves. It’s a casual look with an elegant vibe that isn’t fussy. This wrap would look equally at home over blue jeans and a sweater with sneakers. It would also look great over a sweater dress with suede knee boots.
The blouse is a pop-over style with a few buttons down the front neck and pleats in the front for a feminine shape. Its ecru color is soft rather than pure white so it has a gentle look as well. It comes in sizes 0/2 – 20/22. I am wearing a 4/6.
I chose a simple strand of pearls, similar here, that have a soft luster and would not compete with this lovely Foliole Brooch. I’m so proud to share that Dean Davidson is donating 100% of the proceeds of each brooch sold, to the We Matter organization which is dedicated to providing hope and support for Indigenous youth.

The chocolate pull-on jeans are a nice break from blue denim which I’m feeling a bit tired of. It’s nice to mix things up and I’m finding that colored denim, corduroy, cotton twill, wool, and knit pants are a great option. These come in 6 gorgeous colors in regular, petite, and tall, sizes 0-20. I am wearing a 6.
My choice would have been a soft brown or taupe, suede flats, but I don’t own those so I paired this look with these platinum ballet flats and think I like this combo better! It subtly picks up the special brooch, the gold tones in the wrap, and my hair color.
*Style Tip- Women should always own a pair of shoes that match the color of their hair because they will go with everything in your wardrobe because they match you!
