Project Runway- an Occasional Friday Series- Girly, girl edition

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.
