White Picket Fence

Sunday, March 24, 2013


Isn't a white picket fence the epitome of Americana? I don't know who voted that the American dream included a white picket fence... my dream house either has no fences, or a giant wall where my neighbors can't see over lol. I am trying to sneak in a couple more wears on this top before it's too warm. This top is 100% cashmere; anything over 75 degrees, and it's sweaty pit city (that's should be the name of a band). I layered it over this Forever 21 dress, which has a sheer panel over the collar bone, but that's a whole other post ;) Recently, I have been trying really hard to rework my closet. Whenever I am feeling bored with my wardrobe, I start layering items that I wouldn't normally think to wear together. It's a great way to find new combinations you never even knew you had!

Love the look! Would never know this is layered over a dress! I desperately need to rework my closet, I'll be giving this a try!

This is super cute! I love the colors together. And what a smart idea to use the dress as a skirt look - I should try that with some of my dresses, gives them a double purpose, sweet! I'm a new follower from The Collective Hop!!

I discovered your blog recently! You are a beautiful girl and you have an especially wonderful fashionstyle:)
Excuse my curious question but I'm interested in the simple. How tall are you and what size you need in tights? Thanks for the answer and have a nice day. Love Ina

Love the color combo. The print on the skirt is perfectly sweet. The necklace is something that can totally be dressed up or down.
