These shoes, the dress, and the cardigan are all pieces I’ve gotten recently. I originally got the dress from lulus.com when they had their Easter sale; I’d seen it a few days before and loved it, and then they dropped the price to $34, and then I got 20% off of THAT, so it was basically a sign from the heavens that I needed to buy it. Super simple, but I don’t have a purple dress for spring and there’s something adorable about it.
Now, because I don’t have anything much better to do with my life, I have started, two months ahead of time, to consider what I’m going to wear to the two graduation ceremonies I’m going to this year (neither are mine, I’m just honestly that bored that I need to plan an outfit for something where no one cares if I’m even there). These shoes were something I’d seen a while back and as I remembered them, this whole outfit kind of came together in my head. Bright, bold contrasting colors tied together with gold accents. I was originally thinking of just a plain orange cardigan when I found this gem on Anthropologie’s site. It’s adorable, fits the look well and adds just the right amount of statement. A gold belt over it—I’d probably actually look for something braided, so I could knot it, and also keep with the look of the cardigan/bracelet—and then jewelry. I’d keep it simple, only a couple of pieces. Definitely a cuff, and I loved this woven one for this outfit, and then either some simple matching earrings or a necklace.
This is a really great transitional outfit. Still really casual, just clean and polished. Now just to come up with one more…:)
