Hi there! The weather finally got it's act together so I decide to celebrate with bare legs. Did I shiver like a poodle at my desk all day? Damn right I did, but for the half an hour I was outside, it felt great. I'm wearing an old Banana Republic dress that I love:
If you don't have a striped fit and flare dress, get on that. This Cynthia Steffe option looks super flattering and I love the crazy colors in this Nine West dress. The Gap also has a cute summery version that might have potential. The closest thing I could find to my dress is this one by Kate Spade. Spendy, but super cute.
Details! A bold stripe requires a bold necklace, so I'm wearing my chunker of a tassel pendant. It's Lulu Frost for J.Crew and nobody does a tassel quite like Lulu. This beauty is still on sale! Someone buy that. For the more modest budget Kendra Scott does a nice tassel and for under $50, this Rebecca Minkoff is awfully pretty. My watch is an old black studded La Mer wrap that I totally forgot I owned. I used to wear it a lot on the blog.
My shoes are Madewell Sidewalk Skimmers in a purply-blue suede. I love them. They don't seem to be carrying the Skimmer style anymore, but the blue suede Lydia flats look pretty amazing. BR also has a blue suede pointy flat that's currently on sale. Ooh, and check out this Marc Fisher pair! That color is closest to my pair.
And finally, so I don't freeze to death in the morning, I threw on my excellent Madewell Beckett jacket. Thanks, Marianne! It shouldn't work with this dress at all but I think it does. An olive utility jacket is the perfect in-between weather option. The Fleet jacket at Madewell has potential and this Target Merona jacket looks like a great under-$40 option. I don't generally link Forever 21, but damn, this is cute.
