Electric Lime

Dress: Aeropostale   Hat & Tights: JcPenney   Boots: Payless   Necklace: c/o Our World Boutique   

Lately I've been waking up so congested and am currently fighting off the remnants of a flu. When these photos were taken, I'd woken up with swollen eyelids and had decided to skip any eye makeup to avoid irritating them. Instead, I went with a cherry red lipstick, and man, did it pick my spirits up! For fun I decided to top off my outfit with a floppy hat, and I couldn't help feeling a little glamorous in this outfit.

This electric lime dress is an old clearance find from Aeropostale this summer, and I'm embarrassed that I haven't worn it out yet. The pretty peplum and dark florals against a lime green color are such lovely touches! Accented with blacks and greys, it's perfect for going into winter. I received this necklace from Our World Boutique and it's such a lovely statement piece. The light green color matches the dress wonderfully. I wore it to work one day and a customer commented on it, saying it was, "booooootiful!" I'm not kidding, he pronounced it "booty-full" just like that. 

In school related news, registration for the spring semester have started (already??) and I've got my schedule all set up. Its unreal how fast this past year has flown by. Its possible that I may be done with my Associates degree by next summer! After that, who knows what will come next? So far, I'm trying to stay focused from day to day. Yet in my heart I can't help yearning for the future to get here already - there are a couple opportunities that I'd love to get started on!

Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

You must have really nice lashes, my dear, since no eye make up doesn't effect you whatsoever!

lime green is such a pretty colour and the dress does look lovely next to your new statement necklace. and yeah, I have also no idea where this year has vanished. it has just ticked away and I haven't even noticed how or when... life's probably way too busy, don't you think?

OH my gosh, I love this so much. First off, I'm a sucker for dresses and you look absolutely boootiful in that thing. ;) Your necklace accents it perfectly and gives the whole outfit a tiny touch of whimsy. I like. Bravo! :D

I hope you feel better soon. I had a small bout of food poisoning yesterday and that was enough for me. :(


Shamu Boo said...

What a brilliant fun dress and so smart with that stunning necklace. And, of course, I love those tights on you. Your gorgeous legs are the perfect venue for them, especially in that second to the last shot. Wow! Totally made my night, dear. And thanks so much for your kind words on my poem. Means so much to me! Glad school is going by so well for you. Stay well :)

Love this springtime dress in autumn. Your Hat is so darling. I don't wear hats and I should. I never think of adding a hat but this winter, with my short hair, I just may want to have a hat on my head, huh? (alliteration?) hahahahaha. *wink*
