Jul 14th - Outfit #16 - Simple Floral

And after all the thunder and lightning last night, we are back to warm breezes and sunny skies. A perfect day for Ultimate! But first, I went to my WW meeting.
This silk dress is finally being worn as a dress! I last wore it here as a blouse, in case you forgot. Today, I kept everything very simple, just belting it and wearing the gold sandals (last worn here, 2nd outfit).
I also have gold hoop earrings on. I take off all my jewelry to play Ulty: my rings, my earrings, anything else. I don't want to accidentally hurt someone while trying to catch a disc.

Dress (Smoking Lily, thrifted), belt (Bianca Nygard), shoes (Naturalizer, consignment).

Last night, it was pouring rain, so I got to break out my new-to-me orange trench coat for the walk down to the gallery. A perfect opportunity for L and I to do a portrait.
I love his porkpie hat.

My raincoat (purchased here) came out beautifully in the wash - no drycleaning needed! I had my "I Sizzle in the Drizzle" umbrella and my Toblerone-shaped purse as well.

Hope your weekend is full of sunshine and happiness!

Coat (Bebe), purse (Aldo, consignment).

  2. That is such a fabulous dress. Not like any other Smoking Lily I've ever seen. That orange coat would be great with the dress too.

    Just wondering if these t-shirts were L's style. http://www.punkmasters.com/

    1. No, me neither - I wonder if it was a one-off?

  3. You're always rockin' the perfect colors! And your influence in styling for your hubby is apparent...well, unless he's a natural too. That rain coat color is fantastic. How come I never find anything like that? And your purse!!!!!!! Does it have any chocolate in it??

  7. I'm usually not a huge floral person, but I really love the print on that dress. It's so bright and summery.

    I love your "toblerone" purse and trench! So chic. Hooray for more men's fashion. I think L could run his own fashion blog. ;P Heehee.

    1. L is very fashionable - he had the natural inclination when I met him, and he's let me educate and encourage him to really express himself in his clothes.

  9. You are rockin' the dresses lately.

    I especially love the photo of you guys together. So funny, Dear Hubby is on a NYPD Blue marathon, currently 8th season I believe, and in one of the episodes, a character's pork pie hat was his chief identifying feature :)
