neutrals? yes, please.

i really love basic, neutral colors. you have probably already noticed this, and i am sure it will be more obvious as time goes on. my wardrobe consists mainly of tan, cream, brown, black, navy and of course, gray. i'm totally fine with my absence of "color."

p.s. the shoes are my new booties, which you will be seeing MUCH more of as autumn sneaks up on us.





dress: vintage, clutch: f21, belt: f21, tights: target, booties: naughty monkey

yes! love the shoes and the dress. what I like best is the way you bloused the top to make it shorter.

wendyb: thanks! i love them.

glory: i love the textures of the dress too!

kristin: thanks! :) it's a necessity when you have the same leg length as a 12 year old. haha.

Gorgeous outfit. That dress is dreamy. I wish I wore more basic colors, they look so instantly chic, but bright colors draw my eyes in stores!

TCH: thanks! i wish i liked brighter colors, sometimes my wardrobe feels very repetitive. i know it sounds weird, but i just don't feel completely comfortable wearing a lot of color. :)

love the light, loose feel of that dress. perfect!

old fashioned: thanks so much! the fabric is so comfortable. it's a bit too big, so i've done some psuedo-tailoring by tucking and blousing it into the belt.
