I'm not very good at planning outfits. When I plan on wearing something I almost always end up hating it. I prefer dressing organically. I stare at my closet and pull out things one at a time. I play with my clothes until I end up with something I feel comfortable in. The color of this dress was so muted and earthy that I felt like dressing up for a pretty safari--combining natural earth tones with feminine details. I even left my hair natural with no product at all (talk about into the wild!).

lovely pictures!

The color of that dress is gorgeous! I find that when I plan out my outfits in advance, I am never in the mood to wear them the day of! I definitely think that the best outfits are those that aren't planned.

Love the sunny backdrop here! Don't you just love Cali. :)

I have to tell you that I am so excited about the Glitter Guide! I have no doubt that it will be so successful. I love hearing about fellow Cal Poly alumni taking risks and doing what they are passionate about.

Did you ever have the SF blogger get together? I wish I could have made it. Any interest in collaborating on a south bay version? You could give an inspirational and motivating toast. ;)

I loved this dress when I saw it on Asos. It's a great compliment to the green jacket. I can never just pick out an outfit. I always have to plan. Just want to say thanks again for the jeans! I needed a new pair. I will have to let you know, which kind I end up with.

Dancing Branflake said...

aliciafashionista said...

I recognized that dress RIGHT away! My friend and I have been stalking the ASOS Dress section for a month contemplating which ones we'll actually buy! I love how you played with colurs and trends, this outfit is one of my faves xoxo

The WholeFamDamily said...

ok, chunky necklaces are a must purchase for this year. and perhaps a fedora. you pull it off tremendously!

Fashion Momma said...

I'm so excited that you wore this today. I've been contemplating a dress in a similar color and was afraid it would wash me out, because I'm fair skinned and blonde. But it looks fabulous on you, so I think I might take the plunge!

Kate Russell said...

For someone who doesn't "plan outfits very well"-you sure do look great! I love the color of that dress. I have this slight obsession with anything mustard. You look amazing.
