Try-it-out Tuesday: daydream 0, reality 1

   Wandering through fields of gently waving grass and vivid wildflowers, enjoying a leisurely afternoon tea in a quaint shop while gazing out the window at a picturesque street scene ... that's what I think I should be doing while wearing this dress. Which perhaps explains why I haven't worn it since buying it more than a year ago.
 Maxi dress, Old Navy
   Love Change tank, Macy's
Carole agate necklace, Nordstrom Rack clearance, ($2.40!)
vintage mother-of-pearl ring, belonged to great-aunt
 
     The dress is rather low-cut, so I added a tank for coverage and to balance out the fanciness of the dress.

      I didn't do anything special in this dress -- it was the first day of classes after spring break. But I did feel pretty all afternoon long. And I think that always counts for something. :)
