what I wore : mint + polka dots - The Dainty Squid

what I wore : mint + polka dots

Monday, June 03, 2013

details -
hat - thrifted
sweater -Charter School Cardigan c/o Modcloth
 necklace - c/o Omerica Organic*
tights - JC Penney

Oooh, this dress! I love being able to buy items of clothing that I love in other colors. I own this dress in a pumpkin-y shade and absolutely adore it. You can find an outfit post with it here. The fit is spot on and I'm always looking for more solid colored dresses (because that means I can go wild with accessories. Duh!) The one in the pumpkin-y shade is perfect for fall and winter while this one is great for spring. It matches perfectly with the Homemade Ice Cream Flats from Modcloth too! The funny thing is when I got these shoes I was a bit worried they wouldn't get much wear because they're such a bright color but I've been wearing them constantly. I'd even rank them somewhere in my top five pairs of shoes.

Hope you have a great start to your week! I'm off to start editing the oodles of pictures from this weekend's fun adventure with Elycia, can't wait to tell you all about it.
xoxo

  18. Hello from a new reader!
    Your outfit is perfect! Wish I could still wear cardigans this time of year. June in Arizona means little or no layers, sadly. Excited to have found your blog! I look forward to future posts :)

  30. I love that dress.
    I have one similar in color (just a different style) that I got when I went to a sale benefiting a local dog shelter. It is my favorite dress. I bought a bag for a dollar and filled it with clothes. It doesn't get better than that! :D
