Hey, all! On the heels of the very blue Maritime dress I wore in the last post, I am publishing another installment of my ROYGBIV series, today focused on B or Blue.
(By the way, the next post--I or Indigo--is the one I have struggled most with...is indigo a navy blue or is it a purple/blue? If you know the answer, definitively, would you comment with the answer? I don't want to publish a whole slew of navy outfits and then discover that the post should have included only purplish outfits. Hmm.)
If you open up the photo, it has the info on the pieces.
BTW, my hair looks really red here. I notice it looks redder when I have a white background, so I suspect the white background throws off my camera's color.
I do technically have some variation of dark strawberry blonde hair (if I never went in the sun it would always be this color), but it doesn't ever look this red in real life. Only photos. ;)
This is the Starlet Knit Dress from Garnet Hill, and like I expected, it is made incredibly well and is very flattering. It is a jersey knit fabric and definitely felt comfortable and cool. I took it in a small.
The dress even has pockets, which I liked. Most jersey dresses don't come with pockets, so this is a nice bonus.
The Greta Suede wedges I am wearing are one of my best purchases of 2011. I think I got them for $40 on super sale in September and I have found that I am wearing them a lot this summer. If you can find a pair on ebay, definitely think about picking up a pair if you have a need for a pair of dressy casual heels.
I like mixing this shade of blue and bright red, as evidenced by how many times I do it (with the Riviera shirt dress and the Maritime dress, for instance).
Bits of this outfit are...J. Crew Factory (Sweatshirt), Tzuri Gueta (necklace), Duo Maternity (cords), Shoes (J. Crew), and earrings (J. Crew).
Anyhow, I may have gone out to dinner in this outfit, but nothing more than Five Guys or McDonalds.
Still any reason I have to wear my Tzuri Gueta necklace, I will wear it. ;)
This was worn around and about one day with the fam. The blue is technically in the top's print, but it is hard to tell, so open up the photo for proof.
This outfit was also postpartum, but I was a bit more out of the woods (so to speak) at 5 weeks past the birth...
Fedora and top (may have cost all of 8 dollars): J. Crew Factory.
Okay, that's all for tonight. Hope everyone has a happy rest of your Monday.
