I originally hadn’t planned on wearing this outfit combination. The dress was on my short list for Thursday, but with a different cardigan. I picked up this one looking for the other one, and figured they would go well together, considering I wore bright pink with this sweater before.
I like the colors together, and I received a couple compliments yesterday, but I think I won’t do this combo again. I really like this sweater with a shorter, fuller skirt, and the dress here looks a little limp. Don’t worry! I’ve got plenty of other plans for this dress. I think the price per wear is now down to mere pennies.
Simple patterned disc earrings, from a clearance sale on Fashion Bug’s website a couple years ago, kept me from wearing the hematite bead set again.
I love the texture of these tights. I wish I could order them in every color, but this year’s inventory at Lane Bryant seems to be limited to grey, brown, and black; the hot pinks tights were an anomaly.
(Side note: the bright $5 colored tights at Target are low-rise, which, as it turns out, don’t work well with my body shape. Definitely time for a We Love Colors order!)
