This morning I pulled out a recently thrifted dress, determined to wear it, longing for the flowery, flouncy look that this dress has.
At first I put a cream-white color with it, in both under-T and tights, but somehow I was not pleased.
"BLAH!" I gasped, when I looked at the photos.
(not that I don't love this flouncy net petticoat made into the dress, no matter the color!)
I trudged in and started looking for color!
"Blue, blue, blue," I said to myself.
Aha!! I like it!
The colors of the tights and the shirt looked to be very similar in the house, but then outside they were not exactly the same. Nevertheless, I love the injection of color here, and I think they work! I think the blue shirt and tights bring out the floral print and also the dark trim around the petticoat.
