Pulling back

When I got dressed this morning, my inclination was to add something to this outfit. I felt a little bit like it was lacking "pizazz" if you will. I thought of adding something with color or big pattern to help the textural pattern on the dress and then reconsidered thinking of the outfits I post that I love so much. I always love to see photos of super neutral, sort of minimal getups and it's not always easy for me to do, it takes a certain fashion restraint to leave an outfit sort of minimal, at least for me. But since I love looking at it on others, I am trying to also do it myself.

As a side note, I had a doctor's appointment today, and my doctor, who is very cool, could not believe the whole outfit was vintage. She is so cool that she told me that after I saw her last she visited my shop because my outfits are always "so creative". Of course she is cool, she is a naturopathic doctor who is also a yogi and also a chiropractor!

I love! love! love the robin pix behind you!!! Having a cool yogi doc that likes vintage clothing would make going to the doc a lot easier! Great outfit!

This is a great outfit! The fabric is amazing, and you get an A+ for the perfect accessories. I love your style, so I'm following now. Please come do a 6-piece showcase for EtsyLounge when you feel like it -- you an show one of your own store pieces mixed with 5 other items from other Etsy sellers. Check out the post from Monday, 7/6: Cheers! Andria (tweeting as EtsyLimbo)

Love love LOVE chunky necklaces like that! Hope everything went okay at the doctor's. I'm trying to find a good naturopathic doctor over here. I'm so sick of the comments I get at the ones I go to.

The outfit look great like that! It is funny, I always have a difficult time in the summer dressing because I love using layers and layers in the cooler months.S o I always feel like something is missing in the summer when I just have on a dress and sandals. I don't really have much jewelry but maybe that is the answer.

Fabulous dress! It has such a clean, modern look to it, and that necklace gives it the right amount of playfulness and girlishness, I think.

I'm loving your blog, by the way. Looking forward to each and every post.
