The theme of the week is April Showers: A book that made you cry which is gonna be a toughie for me because I’ve not exactly been reading books recently. I may have to dig deep into the archives or get creative again for this one…
But that’s Thursday. Today, I give you my ode to spring.
The whole outfit almost defies any explanation, it’s that overtly colorful and in-your-face. I feel like this is one of those instances when a picture is definitely worth a thousand words.
Still, I am a wordsmith after all, so let me try to point out all the bits that made my happiness factor shoot through the roof when I concocted this confection:
- Pink florals + chartreuse, the true Gemini color
- Flattering waistline
I also want to give a shout out to Jan @ Fort Smith Stylista who had posted a while back with a plea to help her style nude pumps. I almost chose my fuchsia pumps but decided that the vibrant colors and the details of the dress and the last-minute addition of pearls to fill a rather risqué décolletage necessitated a more sedate footwear option, n’est-ce pas?
So Jan, this outfit is dedicated to you!
All in all, I feel uber pretty in this ensemble, which is something I need since today heralds the official end of Spring Break and my return to ye ol’ grind. Like I always say, “The cuter the outfit, the less I want to be here” and cheekiness aside, I think I’m ready to face the world.
