Perhaps Pantone was right about this honeysuckle thing...
Or maybe I just happen to have a lot of honeysuckle hues in my wardrobe already, so I'm glad it's saving me some money.
Either way, this outfit was a bit of an accident.
I thrifted this dress well over a year ago, and this is the first time I actually wore it out in public. It was kind of that whole I liked it in the dressing room but not-so-much in the closet syndrome. I'd look at and think, "Nah...I can do better."
And then Sunday came, and I needed something quick and easy to throw on to have some family over for dinner. I actually wanted to wear a different dress, but I thought that particular dress looked better with a cardi. Now it's been hot enough outside, as I've mentioned, plus I knew I was going to be laboring over a hot stove, so that dress got nixed. I decided to throw this dress on mainly because I didn't want to spend anymore time in the closet fussing over my outfit when I should have been fussing over food in the kitchen. So, I threw it on, snapped some quick photos via self-timer and my dresser/bed, and called it a day.
Come to find out, the dress isn't half bad. I wouldn't necessarily call it my go-to dress, but it's a great (on trend) color, and it fits well. What's not to like?
I didn't want a lot of fussy stuff (I like that word today, eh?) since I knew I'd be working in the kitchen, so I kept accessorizing minimal. Maybe I'll see how I can liven it up a bit before I return it to thrift heaven. What d'ya say?
