This dress is a little shorter than I like (it’s a hand-me-down from my sister, she liked things just knee-length, while I prefer the hem to hit well below the knees), but I can’t pass up the perfect 1940s silhouette. The print, too, is a favorite of mine – I’m always partial to anything with a botanical feel. I haven’t worn a necklace in forever, but the print of this dress doesn’t go well with a brooch, so a necklace it is. Plus, it goes so well with the black-and-white print, doesn’t it?

Here’s my outfit for this week’s SIA, inspired by “Breton Woman” by Kanae Yamamoto. I thought about wearing my gray striped dress, but the weather warmed up unexpectedly, so I had to look for an alternative. Luckily, my sister just handed this gray skirt down to me, so I paired it with my black blouse and added my feather brooch as a nod to some of the hard/soft lines in the print. All in all, I’m quite happy with how the outfit turned out – perhaps even more so than my original plan!
If you haven’t sent me your outfits, you still have until tomorrow. And don’t forget to come back on Wednesday to see what everybody wears!

The weather is definitely warming up now, so I’m seizing these transitional days to wear some of my more awkward pieces – too light to be worn in the winter, but not breathable enough for the summer – like this dress, for example. For some reason, whenever I wear it, I always revert to my early “twee” days of style blogging with the coordinated accessories and everything, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing, is it?
