Creamsicle, or Dress #30


Dress (as top): Akris Punto;
Skirt: Ann Taylor, thrifted;
Sweater: Ann Taylor Loft, gift;
Shoes: Zigi Soho;
Bracelet: Finder's Keepers;
Ring: Shop Kim
lovely giveaway gift from La Historiadora de Moda.
How I've worn the dress before: here.
I loved this outfit so much in the fall that I repeated it, but changed out my shoes and jewelry. I kinda like the spring version of it. I loved buying this dress -- it was my college graduation gift to myself. I remember the saleslady saying that it would be a good dress to transition into the new stage of  my life, and she's right. This is very much a grownup dress. For some reason, I like wearing skirts over it rather than wearing it by itself -- it's very much a wiggle dress,  and I think I'm much more comfortable being covered up a bit more. I also think I look like a walking Creamsicle bar this way. The weather has been so nice recently that the ice cream carts have been everywhere around my part of town -- I might have to get some ice cream that way this week!

I won the ring from La Historiadora de Moda's birthday giveaway and I love it. I really need to take a better picture of it, but it's really been a versatile ring to wear. Thanks Kim and LHdM!

Going to curl up to a book before dinner... hope you have a great night!

signature1 by you.
