Not Too Much Color


Print dress, Ann Taylor. Sleeveless shirt, Isaac Mizrahi for Target. Moth earrings, Claire’s. Belt, swap. Shoes, Linea Paolo. Bag, um…I forgot the label, but I just got it at Macy’s

This outfit was an exercise in self-control. I discarded both the oversized, hot pink necklace and dark green clutch in favor of neutral accessories in gold and camel. I’ll admit that I have a tendency for the flamboyant that needs to be reined in occasionally.

OH OK, OK, how on earth did that belt hold that pink shirt in place all day? Is it buttoned but just covered by the belt? explain please!

looks great btw! I too have been guilty of trying to over do it with accessories, I have learned a lot about less being more from your blog. I would never have thought to wear beige pumps with a brightly colored outfit before coming here, now I do it all the time!

Great outfit and I love the neat trick with the belt. Does it stay in place all day?

I'm having a flashback to a dance when I was in grade 10 (god, 1982...so long ago) - I wore a belt just like that with a teal dress!

Love the pink and green - I would probably have done gold shoes and the green bag, but then I'm a matchy addict. :-P

Hi Kasmira,

This is my first comment, but I've enjoyed your outfits for about a year now!

I really love the handbag! I've been looking for something similar in a nude/camel color that I could wear with most outfits.

I also like the idea of pairing the sleeveless shirt over the dress. I think that could be a cool look over a long sleeved dress and some tights in the winter.

I love that bag so much - I have it in red.
I believe it's by Franco Sarto, and I got mine at Macy's as well.

The bag IS Franco Sarto. I was posting at the coffee shop and didn't have it with me, but I confirmed when I got home. I want to use it every single day.

Usually, my belts stay in place, but it didn't want to with this outfit. :(

The shirt normally fastens with two tabs that button under the bust (hard to explain). I wore it unbuttoned here.
