We Live in Pretty Prints

Why, hello again! You guessed it, it's Elana from Room 334 here and I'm so excited to share my first swap with Leah of We Live Upstairs! I was thrilled when Leah joined our group since I've been drooling over her wardrobe and mad layering skills since the moment I discovered her blog. I adored this dress (that I'm wearing as a top) on Leah when I saw it on her blog, but wasn't quite sure I could pull it off as well as she did. I love prints, but tend to shy away from intricate ones for myself without even realizing it. I tend to stick to solids, polka dots, and stripes and not even on purpose. I finally decided that since this was os unlike anything I owned, and exceptionally pretty, I wanted to try it and I'm incredibly happy that I did. 

Just me, being attractive.

To feel like I was at least a little bit creative, I decided to wear the dress as a top and wore it under my favorite white pleated skirt. As usual, I couldn't help but throw a collar underneath and I was glad to see that this dress was the perfect way to finally wear this cardigan that has been sitting in my room untouched for at least a few months now. All that layering and I'm happy with how it turned out!

Of course, I still don't think I wore it even half as well as Leah. Doesn't she just look perfect? I'm on the hunt for a pair of booties exactly like hers!

Thanks for stopping by! You know the drill; make sure to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and head over to my blog for the outfit details.

  2. I tried to comment on your blog then accidentally closed the page. I love that you toned down the dress a bit by pairing it with that skirt - it's really brilliant and looks like they came together. You look adorable.
