Mar 27th - Outfit #25 - Colour Me Green

I am just craving colour right now! All the daffodils and cherry blossoms are out (I'll take some pictures soon, promise) and my olive green, slate blue and burgundy colour scheme for March suddenly seems very dull indeed. 

Fortunately, I threw in a couple of brighter versions of that palette and I am so glad I did!
When I saw this rather plain dress in the thrift store a few months ago, I liked it and saw that it had good layering potential, and I liked the colour, but I didn't dream how much I would enjoy this lovely shade of blue.

Anyway, this is that blue dress again (last seen here) and my fuzzy bright olive (can olive be bright?) cardigan (last seen here).
I did my brown Mary Janes again (last seen here), then did a brown belt to pull the browns together.

Wait, I forgot my "new" pose!
Point your toes!

My gold tights work their magic again.

The stuff:
I got that bracelet in Vancouver on last year's anniversary trip.

Dress (Ann Taylor Loft, thrifted), cardigan (Kersh), shoes (Nine West, thrifted), bracelet (consignment), belt/ring (Club Monaco), earrings (Oscar & Libby's).

  1. Very springy! Simple things are always the most versatile.

    The bracelet is so beautiful!

  2. You know I love that dress, which is almost the same color as my new Vogs. What size are you again? lol Seriously, I love dresses that are versatile, and in perfect colors for the wearer's skin tones, like this is on you.

    1. In a dress, I'm anywhere from a 6 to a 10; in shoes, I'm a 9.5/40. If I get tired of the dress, I'll send it your way!

  3. I could see that this dress would work in many seasons! In the winter it would look great with a light grey and silver.

  5. I do love this brighter look. That green cardi always looks like it's super soft. I hope it is! I love that belt too. I think it's definitely spring time.
