One of the things I love about spring and summer is the changeover to warm weather clothes. I'm a dress kinda girl when the weather become hot and sticky. In part I love the flexibility of dresses due to my workplace which vacillates between burning up hot and ice cube freezing. I try and dress in layers, and most days have a little cardi or jacket I can take off if needed.
I bought three new dresses this season for a steal, all three dresses were around 150.00 together. I tried to make all outfits I could dress up or down. All can be easily packed for my summer trips to WA and CA. Something tells me I better pack my best, most conservative outfits to fit in for the Week on Reagan!
Up first a fit and flare dress in jade green from Old Navy. Rarely do I copy everything on a store display down to the accessories. I loved this garden floral print with the dress. It's like wearing spring.
Next is a sleeveless linen shirtdress with pintucking placards across the chest. I actually found this scarf that is yellow/lime green, black and white before I found the dress. I love the blocked, modern color of the scarf. I feel a little like a flight attendant with how long the scarf feels tied. I hope to get some other ideas on other ways to wear the scarf for maximum amount of color shown.
Lastly, while buying a pair of shoes, I needed 20 more dollars to get free shipping. I found this coral colored shirtdress on clearance that looks like I ripped off Jackie Kennedy. I needed some chunky all white jewelry and a thin belt. A Charming Charlie has recently opened nearby. While I feel about 900 years old when I walked in, for another 20 bucks I got a belt, necklace and matching earrings.
