blush bar iii mesh dress

 I am totally obsessed with this blush look.  I can't believe I haven't worn it yet.  I bought this dress a few months ago with the intent of wearing it to J's graduation, but then the forecast said rain, so long story short, I decided against wearing it.

blush monochrome look

For some reason, I find monochrome looks a bit more difficult to wear in the spring & summer.  Maybe that's because I usually just toss on a dress & call it a day, but this time I was able to match my accessories perfectly to this dress, right down to my latest manicure!

I'm always a little worried when wearing a flare skirt dress, like this one, because as soon as the wind blows, I am having a Marilyn Monroe moment.  Thank goodness for Skimmies.  A lightweight short created by Jockey to give me the extra coverage that I need when wearing (or twirling in) a flowy, mini dress.
