Watermelon Kiss: ootd

    Verdant is the word for this time of year and rightly so as everything is so very green.  The days are a little longer and the wind is a little warmer.  I lose a little sleep this time of year.  I just can't stay in bed with all the birds singing and the sun streaming through the windows.  Summer is almost here.

    I had a little trouble naming this week's post.  Maybe because I had a little trouble with this dress.  It's a little unlike my style.  I don't really go for this many stripes normally, but there was something I just loved about it.  So, I looked at it for weeks without knowing just how to wear it.  In the end I thought it looked a little like a slice of watermelon, so I decided to run with the idea.

    I paired it with a pale pink beaded cardi and a grapefruit bag I made myself.  I'm mixing prints with metallic snakeskin heels, but they're very neutral and I think it works well.

The look:

This little dress is by Carandy and was available at Anthropologie, though it is no longer in stock

Spritz a Wonderful Life purse at for $44.99.  I made my own smaller version out of felt.

Faux Pearl Knit Cardigan at Forever21 for $12.90 in sizes S,M, L is similar to my own beaded cardi.

And I don't usually post my make-up info, but for this I used Baby Lips by Maybelline in Peach Kiss.  I have several of the Baby Lips glosses and this one is my favorite for a natural, nude lip.  It's available at most drugstores.
