Every now and again I stumble upon a color combination that I have never previously worn or even considered a possibility – but there is something about it I just love. The light gray and electric yellow pairing is one such example. I was getting ready in the morning and already knew I’d be wearing the gray dress, but what to pair it with? I’ve previously worn it with army green and, of course, my go-to denim jacket. Oh a whim I threw on the yellow moto-style jacket and was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. Pair that with a pair of white wedges and an over-sized patterned bag and I was good to go for the day.
The material of this dress, even though it is lined, is a little clingy for my tastes. The first couple times I wore it I made sure to have a slip on underneath – but that created some weird seam lines and bumps that I wanted to avoid. This time I went with a simple pair of nude Assets (cheap version of Spanx) and I think that made all the difference! The dress fell perfectly that way and no slip was required.
It’s funny to me, that by just looking at the pictures I can tell how much I really liked the overall look; which reminds me of the fact that when we wear something that looks AND feels good we are able to walk a little taller, smile a little wider, and own the day just a little bit more.
So… here’s to wearing things that make us both looks and feel good.
What outfit do you slip on and feel just a little bit better about the day ahead?
