After languishing for months, I’m trotting out these shoes for the second time in three weeks. AND using them as an excuse to wear bright yellow, magenta, and black together. I like to call such things “bridging pieces,” but maybe they’re just color-mixing excuses in accessory format.

P.S. Karen Kane is running a great promo on the Julie Maxi Dress, Pleated Maxi Dress, and Buttoned Tie Top in a gorgeous variety of bold colors. Poke around the site, and then use coupon code ALREADYPRETTY30 when you check out for 30% off, including plus-sized versions of these items!

And for this week’s outtake: I give you the raspberries. Even though you’ve done nothing to deserve them.

    I usually don’t care for bright yellow, but I LOVE this color combination!

  • Awesome! As soon as I saw the thumbnail of this outfit, I knew you were wearing those sandals!

  • Gabby

    I’m a Minnesotan too, so I am a bit confused at why you are wearing so many layers and sleeves when it has been so unusually hot/humid.

    • Sal

      I work indoors and have a very efficient A/C system. 😉

  • You look gorgeous in your maxi dress!

  • Wow, I think any excuse to wear those fabulous shoes is a good one!

  • Cleo

    Do you take it as a compliment if I tell you this makes me think of the most delicious gelato combo ver, natural pistachio/ raspberry?
    ’cause I mean it as a compliment! And it makes this officially the summeriest attire ever 🙂

    • Sal

      Hee! Then I sure will. Thank you, Cleo.

  • Must be the zeitgeist. Just looked at What I Wore 2Day and she has the self-same colour scheme.

  • Sarah

    Lovely dress – looks great on you! Also, I love the raspberry 🙂

  • Oh I love this! The colours are great, and the matchiness is pleasing 😀
