French Lavender

Happy Friday (and Happy Orange is the New Black Day!), all!  It's Sammi from The Soubrette Brunette, and I'm super excited to finally post these photos!  I borrowed this lovely lavender dress from Hannah earlier this spring, and it ended up being one of my favorite remixed outfits to date.  It sort of has a bit of a European vibe to it, I think, and I think lilac and mint has to be one of my favorite color combinations!  This remix also made me realize that I could use some more solid-colored pieces in my wardrobe; prints are fun, but they aren't nearly as versatile!
Because this dress is so sheer, it makes for the perfect layering piece.  I actually don't have any solid white button-down shirts in my closet (shocking, I know), but I remembered that I had this off-white button-down dress from Forever 21.  I was afraid it would extend past the length of the lavender dress's hem, but luckily, it kind of acted like a slip!  I opted for some fun tights, since there was still a chill in the air (the polka dots are actually different shades of purple!), and added some purple and mint accessories to bring the look together.  I finally got a chance to wear my lady tie, too -- so that was an added bonus!
Outfit Details:
Lavender dress: swap from Hannah
White dress (underneath) and ring: Forever 21
Lady tie: Flapper Girl
Tights: Target
Shoes: BAIT Footwear

It always amazes me when a light dress like this can span the seasons so well!  And I adore how each of the girls who has styled this has played with other pops of color.  I think I will be forever inspired by my fellow Flock Together girls; I love that they make me think about pieces of clothing in astounding new ways!  Thanks so much to Hannah again, for letting me borrow this gem!

Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I love what you did to this dress, Sammi! The aqua and lilac go so well together. My my you are just the queen of pastels. And seriously, sheer lilac polka dot tights?! Only you would be able to find those and wear them so well. :)

    I hope your Friday goes absolutely swell, my love!

  3. I'm with you on lilac and mint being a favorite color combo :-) This is such a sweet remix Sammi! I am absolutely smitten with your tights.

  4. What?! I've never seen these cute tights at Target! I love the layers here and your hat is amazing! I have the same lady tie and that dress in a different color so I'm going to have to copy this when it's cooler around here :)

  5. Um.... tights are adorable! I love me some flapper girl lady ties too!
