Lighten Up

fullsizeoutput_635 What a pleasure it was to wear a silk dress after months of layers and heavier fabrics – not to mention a colorful silk dress!  While I am not usually drawn to prints this unique Veronica Beard caught my eye, found at least five years ago at Viola Lovely in Concord Center.  I have worn it to work as well as to parties and various evening events,  almost thought I was getting tired of it…fullsizeoutput_629 Glad I didn’t give it away!  It’s a nice change from all my black and tan, and I love the feminine movement of the skirt.  What kept it fresh for me was wearing it with new shoes and a new jacket. fullsizeoutput_620 Super comfy open toe booties by Tory Burch in a rich camel color that goes with everything.  fullsizeoutput_631 To really keep the look light for spring, topped it off with a silvery beige jacket by Vince. Here’s the kicker: The real beauty of this jacket may not be evident in the photos, but the fabric is a thin, soft leather!  Very cool. Love mixing fabrics. And love that I found it at Revolve for a fraction of its retail price!fullsizeoutput_625 Off to work with a shiny tan tote by Sorial. For a similar look, check out their bronze metallic tote for only $148.

Wow – a whole day without wearing a stitch of black.  A nice change!
