One Easy Piece

     This is yesterday's outfit. I'm so bad at keeping a regular blog schedule! Anyway, it was warm enough (even when I left for work in the morning!) that I didn't have to worry about usual chilly weather considerations like tights and appropriate shoes. I started with a simple dress with great color and shape and added a few accessories -- a patterned neck scarf, a bright skinny belt and some emerald green peep-toes. Done! I love spring!
     Another effect of warm weather is bare toes, and I really need to do something about mine. I got my first pedicure for my birthday. It was lovely, but I neither repainted nor removed the polish as it chipped off. I don't own any nail polish or remover. What kind of girl am I? Oh yeah, the kind that hates anything with a chemical smell and prefers natural products. Well, I might have to invest in one little bottle of something bright. It sounds fun.

Dress: Century 21, $25
Scarf: Vintage, thrifted, $2
Belt: Came with a F21 dress
Shoes: Lela Rose for Payless

You should definitely try the color combo! Just add a small touch of one to the other. You'll look great.

I'm sitting in my humid room and thinking how a boy can dress cool and still look cool. You should do a post about that. Just us Travis as your model.
