Not so casual friday

IMG_2406Well, as promised I wore a dress today.  I like this one because it has some neat detailing and is so busy that it just SCREAMS for simple accessories.  In this case I went with a pair of black leggings and ballet flats, a combo I’ve seen all over the place but which is probably just a bit (ok a lot) too young for me.  Tights and boots or bare and sandals would be better.

  • Skater Dress (Asos Curve, no longer available, similar)
  • Black Leggings (can’t recall)
  • Black ballet flats (Sofft, old)
  • Marble and gold bracelets (can’t recall)

I also took my friends suggestion about setting the camera up higher, but I’m not sure it helped and the background is nowhere near as attractive.  I mean really, who wants to see my dirty car.

Looking at the picture I’m starting to think this might be too busy a print.  Either that or I need to take it up some and consider it a tunic.  I would have thrown a cardi or jacket over it, but the long sleeves limit my choices and can be kind of binding.

I blurred around the edges so that you can’t see how bad of a housekeeper I am, but I had to take this picture at home so the camera wasn’t quite set up right.  As you can see, however, there is some neat detailing at the top that makes a necklace kind of redundant and unnecessary.

Anyway, for better or worse this outfit is comfortable and certainly unique.  Whether I’ll wear it again or change it is another question entirely.
