Daily Outfit: 6/16/10

Gray shirt dress, Land’s End
Scarf as belt, thrifted
Orange pumps, Perlina Celebrity
Orange necklace, thrifted

Today, I had my annual performance review at my day job so the above-the-knee, leopard-print wrap dress I’d been planning to wear felt a little … wrong. Went with this instead.

This outfit contains color cheating. That scarf is coral, taupe, red, gray, and white. There isn’t a speck of orange in it. But the orange shoes and accessories make it skew orange, and help those warm tones pop. Or so I’m telling myself.

I had a lovely lunch with the lovely Fabuliss today. That gal is a dynamo, and we had a great time chatting away and noshing on Punch Pizza!

    Very cute!

  • Rosie Unknown

    The colours in this outfit are lovely! I never would have thought that grey and orange could look so great together.

    This is so pretty and elegant, I love the touches of orange!

    I think you should have gone for the leopard. You might have gotten the review of a lifetime! nudge nudge wink wink

    Great dress! I love the touches of orange you wore with it. Really you could wear any color accessories with it and it would look great – a very versatile piece!

  • enc

    A conservative route, no doubt! I love the color.

  • A-C

    so NOT cheating! Lovely combination of scarf, jewelry and heels. The dress is a perfect backdrop for all that color.

  • Deja Pseu

    Those are great shoes. Punch is the best!

  • La Belette Rouge

    Beyond your adorable outfit, you look absolutely lovely and just so very you. Love that picture!!

  • Aury

    You look really nice! The colours most definitely suit you 🙂

  • Megan

    Cute accessories! Of course I love the dress, it's the perfect piece for any color. I think grey can handle the bold orange, coral and reds you're doing here better than black for summer.

  • Elissa

    Beautiful outfit! A great way to dress "conservative" without sacrificing style and your personal aesthetic! I wish I could join you on your black out mission… it's just that I normally never wear black except for the past 6 months I am experiencing an irresistible attraction to it…

    Your outfit was divine! You looked put together and professional and you never compromise personal style.

    P.S. That necklace is UNBELIEVABLE. I must start antique/vintage shopping.
