TOS: Gray with Brights

Cropped green jacket, London Jean. Gray and white floral dress, Isaac Mizrahi for Target. Fuchsia beads, Xhilaration. Yellow pumps, Victoria Spenser. Silver/gray belt, Luxury Divas.

I told you I’d wear the yellow pumps more than once this week!

I LOVE this dress. It’s a great cut for my figure: fitted bodice, boatneck, full skirt, belted. However, it seemed both too precious and too formal for work. I replaced the self belt with a wide silver one and introduced some color with a mixture of brights.

I’ll be honest. Many days I take picture after picture before I get one that looks flattering (like yesterday). I know that an outfit is especially good when I like every picture, from every angle. This is one of those outfits. (And now you know the secret behind multiple picture days.)

I think this dress would also look great with a denim jacket and red accessories.

love this look! love the colors, the green with the yellow shoes, the pink, and you pulled it all together without looking too out-there with a muted silver belt. Fantastic! 4 stars

I ordered the belt from amazon.com. The vendor was Luxury Divas. They carry a bunch of statement belts and the prices are great!

I love the style and cut on that dress very flattering on you. I'm looking for something similar myself. I saw one, but the price wasn't what I wanted to spend, so I have to think on it for awhile. Great addition to any girl wardrobe!!

Hi There. I'm new to your blog and I just want to say how great it is that you put so much effort into all your outfits. I particularly love this outfit. I am in the UK which is a shame as I would have loved to buy that dress!
