Watercolor Dress

[Blue Dress: Crossroads Trading Co.; Grey Dress: J.Crew factory; Jacket: Banana Republic outlet (old); Shoes: Old Navy (only available in blue now; Necklace: J.Crew factory (old); Earrings: BaubleBar; Sunglasses: Ray-Ban Wayfarer ]

This blue dress is another delight from the San Francisco thrift store I was telling you about back here. I loved the watercolor-looking print but almost left it alone because it is so unbelievably sheer. But then I remembered I had this J.Crew strapless grey dress, which fits perfectly under it. The dress is one of the most versatile things I own. You can fold over the top to make it long or short, or wear it at your waist as a skirt. I have it in this dark steel grey, a bright lipstick coral color, and a grey white floral pattern. You will see them all here remixed in dozens upon dozens of ways. They're a few seasons old, but luckily still available online here in a couple of colors.

Neutral and neon has been a big color combo lately. Usually beige is the neutral at play, but I liked mixing the neon shoe with navy. It's my favorite neutral color (and was the shade my bridesmaids wore at my wedding). The jacket is a Banana Republic outlet goodie that I bought as part of a pants suit for an intership interview in college. That was five years ago and this classic number is still going strong.
