I'm not sure if its the rainy, windy, cool weather outside or the rumpled, muddy conditions that this is creating, but I have been in the distinct mood for neutrals over the past few days. First yesterday I decided to forgo a long pleated purple, pink, red and black Tartan skirt in favor of black and brown florals with a gray skirt.
Dress: Thrifted, Cardigan: Anthropologie Sale, Hat: H&M, Belt: Thrifted, Skirt: Thrifted, Stockings: Target, Shoes: Payless, Coin Necklace: Gift
Then today, I chose a recently thrifted brown vintage dress. I have to say that its a great dress though. I don't know if this would make sense to anyone but me, but I feel like Mary Tyler Moore in it. Granted, its been a long time since I've watched the show. The turtleneck makes it a bit conservative, but the clinging fabric, close fit on top and swinging skirt give it a flirty feeling. I love the way this dress moves. But more than that, I love the fact that its such a great palette for building a look with accessories. I am such a sucker for crazy patterns and all sorts of color combinations, but its always nice to have a few neutral dresses in one's wardrobe as well. Oh and I finally wore the new swing coat! Yay, I love the way this moves and drapes too.
