Brown & Blue Flower Power

Posted on: December 13, 2012

I have attempted to wear leggings several times and the silhouette has not gone over well with some foreign women on a forum I use.  I thought if the shirt was long enough to cover my behind that it could work,but they feel it needs to be longer.  Finding longer tunics has been a problem.  So, when I ran across this too short dress I thought I would try this look….

IMG_0955I really love the colors in this print and felt it had a retro vibe.  I am also debuting one of my lucky finds this week instead of waiting until tomorrow to include it in my weekly post.  My jean jacket was a classic cut and not as flattering as this one with all the right seams to create curves. Remember to stop by tomorrow to see the rest of  My Lucky Finds for the week.

IMG_0957I think this is the perfect Mom on the Go outfit.  I love flat boots for running errands and am so glad they are in style right now.  I hope that doesn’t change.  Women need flat options.  I also just love all the prints that can be found out there to really spark interest in an outfit.  While I like wearing scarfs to add interest, I also love using prints in dresses, skirts and tops to do the same.

IMG_0962So three major pieces of this outfit are all thrifted, the purse, dress and jacket.  The total for all three pieces is just $12.50.  I have to say I am completely addicted to thrift store shopping and am not going again to after the holidays.  I hope I don’t have withdrawals…

Gratitude: I am grateful for actually sleeping in today and getting a full 8 hours instead of the 5 or 6, I have been getting.  I am grateful that I found the resolve to really take my exercise up a notch at the perfect time with all the holiday stress.  I am grateful for the legacy of giving my mother instilled in me and in turn I am instilling in my children.

Dear Readers do you have a fashion addiction?  How do you indulge?  How do you resist?  Anyone have any other ideas on how to style this floral dress? Chime in, I would love to hear from you!

I think a short dress is a great alternative to finding a longer tunic. This one looks great on you!

I really like this look. You are right about the leggings. When I wear mine, the bottom has to be covered. Your floral tunic is adorable! I think it would look great paired with dark wash skinny jeans, belted with a pair of brown riding boots 🙂 Heather

Leggings are a thicker tight, so a longer tunic is perfect! And rider boots are always in style! I have my eye on pair, since its a must have. Just waiting for the price to drop!

Hope the price is right in January and you still have a few good months to wear them…
