Tribal & Freesia

 


Back in my day, the Freesia scent at Bath and Body Works was my favorite.  It was light purple, so this is really throwing me that Freesia is yellow.  But Pantone says it, so it must be true.  And it's a good reason to wear my newish yellow cardigan again to link up with Heidi and Marissa

I'm also getting down to the tricky themes in Sarah's April Looking Lucky Style Challenge.  I was stumped on Tribal print, and then I remembered this dress.  I'm not sure if it's quite tribal print, but I think it should count.  It's a little on the short side for work, and especially when it's windy/somewhat chilly.  I decided to get creative and tuck it into my new pencil skirt, but the elastic waist of the dress was too high and looked awkward, so I went with a little make-shift peplum look.  It's a little weird, but I liked taking a risk!  Taking photos, however, was a whole different mess.  So windy and cold!  I wasn't brave enough to keep trying for a non-wind-blown picture, so you get what you get!      

Happy Weekend!  I hope you all have a lovely Easter!    

Top (really a dress): Target
Cardigan: J.Crew Factory

  4. I never would have guessed that your top is actually a dress! I really thought it was peplum. It's really cute that way and I love how you made it work!

  5. I think this looks absolutely amazing!! I had no idea that was a dress, it looks great as a top. Are those shoes new? I'm going to the Gap "Outlet" tomorrow and I really love them!

  8. HA! I'm glad I wasn't the only one who referenced B&BW! This is a fabulous outfit. I love that you experimented with layering a dress--I never would've known! I'm so glad you linked up this week!

  9. I was going to say -- I recognize that print, but I thought it was a dress! And there you go making it into a shirt. I don't think this looks odd at all. I don't think I ever noticed it has a yellow stripe running down it. I thought it was a necklace! This outfit turned out really nicely!
