World Turned Upside Down

The world must really be turned upside down because I’m wearing an awful lot of cream, white, and gold colors and that is just not like me at all. I basically built this look entirely around this awesomely cute bow ring that I got from Aldo but I have to admit that I’m enjoying pushing myself outside of my comfort zone a bit and challenging myself sartorially.









dress: thrifted, Worthington / shoes: Target / ring: Aldo / cardigan: thrifted, no tag / stockings: We Love Colors

Tomorrow I am off to NYC to check out the McQueen exhibit at the MET! I’ll be sure to post on that later.

I have to agree that the ring is adorable and i really think you look great in lighter shades - it is spring after all, and now that this rain has lifted, it's time to wear lighter clothes and celebrate!

Chic on the Cheap

Oh I am adoring this outfit and the ring is so cute (I have been known to work outfits around a piece of jewellery as well!) I can't wait to hear about the McQueen exhibit!

this free bird said...

I love the neckline on your dress...I'm feeling as though there will be something at that McQueen exhibit that may or may not be glittery, sparkly and accidentally falling into your purse. Okay I'm horrible.

Pop Champagne said...

aldo does have some cool accessories! I always check out their accessories sale :D love the ring you are wearing!

Fashion Limbo said...

SUPER jealous about your McQueen-themed trip!!! I hope you have a fantastic time and will be really looking forward reading your thoughts about it xxx

RB said...

Keep dressing outside your comfort zone! I think it's really working for you. I love that dress AND the ring is super cute. Does it go on two fingers or just one?
