Before I get to today’s outfit post, I want to thank those of you who posted comments here and on Facebook about last Friday’s post. I know Mr. “Senior Trainer” was trying to sell a product. I know that he is, God help him, an idiot. I know his so-called feedback had nothing to do with me – or my life – and I’ve mentally tossed it. And I know, because of the group of awesome people I’m honored to call friends, I’m good exactly as I am. Thank you!!
On to the clothes!
Over the weekend I hit a few sales and stumbled across this little gem at The Gap. It wasn’t on sale, but I was willing to fork over a few bucks for this dress which ticks several boxes on the list of Spring/Summer 2012 trends. Stripes! Pastels! Retro 60s shape!
I love the combination of colors – navy, mint green, purple, aqua blue. (The matching blue nail polish? A happy coincidence.) Lately I’ve been drawn to anything with stripes and the “babydoll” shape of the dress is evocative of the 60s, an era I happen to be fond of…for no particular reason.
Worn with neutral accessories to keep the look from spinning out of control, this dress is a winner.
