Linen (the Color, not the Fabric) Scarf Remix





It's Day 4 of the Pantone Spring Color Challenge with Marissa and Heidi, which means Linen is the color of the day.  My Calvin Klein scarf is probably the best "Linen-colored" item in my wardrobe, so that was my starting point, but a lady can't just wear a scarf!  I thought it would look cute with my new dress from Gap, so I added a cognac belt and nude heels and was good to go.

I really like this dress, but 1992 Andi would have LOVED it.  When I was a kid, I had big dreams of opening a candy shop when I grew up, with the brilliantly crafted name of "Andi's Dandy Candy."  It rhymes, get it?!  I spent many days drawing up plans for my store, and everything was bright and colorful.  The uniforms for employees were striped, in my favorite Crayola colors of Jungle Green, Cerulean, Violet Red (basically bright pink magenta), and Red Violet (basically fuchsia).  This dress would have been perfect for the owner of such a wonderful store!  At some point, I gave up on my entrepreneurial plan, but I still like bright colors and stripes!  (PS - I just got super nostalgic about Crayons!  The 1994 release of Gem Tones was a highlight of my childhood!  My store uniforms were probably Emerald, Lapis Lazuli, and Rose Quartz that year).

Okay, back to the topic at hand.  The linen-colored scarf is a frequently-worn item for me.  Here's a remix collage (linking up with AJ again):

  1. That dress looks a lot like a dress by Kate Spade from last summer that I have saved in my "clothing inspirations to make" file, so you get a double thumbs up from me!

  4. Okay, you are super cute - the candy shop story made me smile! I used to be a huge Crayola junkie! Cerulean, Magenta, and jungle green were my favorite colors! I loved the Robin's Egg Blue color too :)

  9. That dress is super cute! I tried it on in a few patterns, but for some reason the fit was a bit "off" and I was between sizes. I was so sad because it's just such a cute dress!
