Anyways, you can see them in a video ON THIS POST - - and speaking of that, can you please vote for me to Win a Ticket To SNAP - just click the star under #22 - it'll just take a second - - thanks!
Moving on, another outfit I thought was pretty good. During these past few months I've really learned about layering and mixing colors through layering. I am a clean fashion slate when it comes to summer - without layering, what do you do!?!? I know my capris are kind of mom-ish, but they sure are comfy....
Now, for the call on your opinions today - - I bought a cute dress at a garage sale for $2, but it's too short and I don't do the sleeveless thing - can I still wear it? I bought some capri leggings at target to go with it. First I wore it with a short-sleeved cardigan:
So then I wore it with a black shirt under it with nothing over it - so you could see the ruffle on the neckline. I added a skinny belt for shape (someone the other week commented on how sashes are out, belts are in - good to know!). Oh, and I'm holding my camera bag that I splurged on a little while ago - I still love it and take it everywhere.
So I wore this second look to a birthday party for my grandpa. I look over and see my cousin's girlfriend, and she's rockin' the dress-with-leggings look too - of course a picture was needed (I'm sure she thinks that was weird - oh well!). I feel like it's a "who wore it best", and I'm thinking it's her.... do I need longer leggings? Maybe mine is all-around too wild?
Alright, let's hear it - - ideas on what to do with summer dresses?? Leggings - Go with it? Get rid of it? This kind of reminds me of when I kicked off my WIWW feature with that controversial dress with jeans....
