Yesterday I was talking about the lesson I learned about sizes and shopping when I found out I wear a smaller size at Calvin Klein in a dress than I do in pants or shorts. Today’s outfit post is from the first time I wore my spankin’ new dress on Sunday.
With such a neutral color, I wanted to amp up the accessories. This wood and turquoise necklace from Stella & Dot seemed like a good companion piece.
Shoes were trickier. I have a pair of light tan slides (barely visible in my first outfit post) but they didn’t seem to go with the style of the dress.
So I pulled out my orange gladiator sandals from Kate Spade. They’re such an unusual color that I don’t wear them frequently, but I think they work here.
Still, I think I’m now on the lookout for a pair of fierce shoes in a nude or sand color (like the ones on the model at the Calvin Klein site).
