Creamsicle

Daily Outfit for Friday, May 13, 2011

I love creamsicles.  They’re one of my favorite treats.  And, yes, I know that doesn’t mean I have to dress like one, but I think we should all just be thankful I didn’t decide to dress like wasabi-crusted tuna tartar.  Which I also love.  So, yes, today I’m dressed like a creamsicle and not tuna:




When I first thrifted this skirt I thought it might be too formal, but then I thought formal-schmormal, I may not wear sequins to work, but I can wear this skirt.  I paired it with a lovely coral orange sweater (Target), which is the twin to this lovely aqua sweater.  I don’t usually buy items in multiples, but I really like these sweaters – I think the colors are so pretty.  I also wore some T-strap wedges (Franco Sarto via Nordstrom) and I have to say that I’m not loving them with this outfit.  I think my platform sandals from yesterday would have probably been the better choice. 

A choice I am loving?  This turquoise-beaded bracelet (vintage from Ray’s Ragtime in Portland):


I love this bracelet with the orange and cream, but I'm starting to think this bracelet might just go with everything.  I'll wear it more often and we can all decide if I'm right or not.

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend.  It’s supposed to rain here (surprise, surprise) so I imagine mine will be very low-key.  Some minor thrifting and whatnot.  How about you all?  Anyone with big plans?
Happy Friday, All!

  8. I LOVE this skirt! Such lovely pleats without being all old-lady pleats in the tummy only. (I know you understand that ramble, right?) It's so nice and summery!

  12. Gracey, you are a dream(sicle) today! You're really making me regret not picking up one of those same sweaters at Target, I just loved the colors and soft fabric but couldn't justify it having so many solid colored vnecks already :/ I'll live vicariously through you here, I could not have styled it more lovely.

  13. Pleated skirts are just trending all over right now, and by all over, i mean the internet, not among most people you might pass by on the streets.
    But still, all the rage. Love yours, and your creamsicle look. Orange is also becoming wildly popular and this shade is gorgeous.

    Chic on the Cheap

  16. I love how laid back this outfit is and how very chic at the same time!
    The bracelet is gorgoues - show me turquise and I'm instantly in love with it, whatever item it might be. I could even love a kitchen sink if it was turquoise. :)
