whatever the weather

Alfani dress, Macy's
cardigan, Gap

      The other morning, I asked my mom about the predicted weather for the day. Her answer went something like this: It won't be blazing hot, but it won't be cold enough to wear a sweater. In other words, she didn't know. ;)
       So as to be prepared for all weather conditions, I went with a shirtdress and cardigan. I like the look of belting a dress over a cardigan, so I tried it out, but as always, it made me look squat and stumpy. (Maybe it works better with a wider belt? Or maybe short-waisted people just can't pull it off?)
       I particularly like how this cardigan doesn't really match any of the dress print's colors, but it accentuates the chartreuse and plays nicely with the blues.

  1. I think the colors of this dress look fabulous on you and the belting is great. What shortens your legs is the length of the dress; if you (or someone else) just took it off right where the hem is, I think it would show off your great legs!

  2. I love how the color of your gorgeous sweater brings out the yellow in your dress. So pretty!

  4. Good point, Erin! That little tweak could work wonders, and it should be fairly simple to do myself. :)
