Where: Went to work, finished an essay paper, and packed my bags for my exciting weekend adventures!

I am loving today's color combo! It's so bright and bold! I really like the idea of wearing a collar shirt under dresses to make an unexpected professional look. I decided to add the cardigan as well to have an extra layer of color and warmth. I'm really pleased with this creative layering!

I also decided to add the flower zipper brooch on the cardigan. I think it gives the entire outfit that extra something.

Do you ever layer collar shirts under dresses?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this dress:

  1. love this look and every outfit in posts below!!!

  2. This is so cute! I love the color combination- it all goes well together! :)

  3. What a pretty color yellow! I love the zipper flower against it. :)

  4. Very nice. You are bold trying these interesting outfits. For me the black flower bourch was the powerful focal point as it brought the balance to the entire outfit and stabilized it, reinforcing the black purse, belot, tights and shoes. When stepping out, its nice to have something to balance it all nicely.

  5. That's such a fantastic way to wear a summer-y dress in the winter! Perfect. I Love the light colors with the contrasting black accessories too!

  6. I love the color combination of the yellow and purple-ish, it looks lovely! That rose zipper pin is fab, I am now on the hunt...

  7. You always look so sharp and well put together. I like your style. I had been here long time ago and I am glad I found you again!
