I tend to avoid florals when clothes-shopping. I don't know whether this is a hold-over from my heavier days (when I was really afraid of looking like upholstery), or if I'm just a little pattern-shy in general. In any case, this dress was too cute to pass up.
I tired to do the "no make-up" make-up look, here, and I think I failed. I look a little anemic.
I especially love the buttons on this dress.
More things should have cool buttons.
I forgot to get a shot of the dress without the cardigan. It's sleeveless, and the neckline can't seem to make up it's mind about whether it's a high tank-style or a subtle boatneck. Regardless, I almost always wear this dress with some sort of cardigan or shrug, so there you go.
Charm bracelets charm me.
Yellow (is my favorite color) floral dress - GNW, thrifted
Cardigan - Target, a hojillian-skillion years ago
Charm bracelet - Vintage, gifted (thanks, Mom!)
Flats - Payless, thrifted
