Watercolor Dress

I bet you can guess what caught my eye about this dress... all the colors of course!

{Dress: Kensie, Shoes: Cole Haan, Clutch: Francesca's Collection, Necklace: BaubleBar, Watch: Marc JacobsBracelets: David Yurman, t+j Designs, Forever 21}

I love that the print of this dress is not in any specific pattern. The way the colors blend into each other reminds me of the watercolor paintings I used to make when I was younger. Yes I used to paint, watercolor and oil, and no I wasn't very good. Although my parents had all of my art hanging in their house for years... but I've noticed that they've slowly been replacing them with 'real' art and the other day my mom brought over a few pieces. She said she thought I might want to hang them in MY house. Whatever mom, just wait till I'm famous, you'll want them back!

And let's take a minute to talk about this clutch. I've been searching high and low for the perfect clutch to take with me to dressier events and I finally found this one. I think it's perfect for weddings and other events I have coming up this summer.

How was everyone's weekend?

Ricademus said...

I'm sure you're not giving yourself enough credit on the art--otherwise mom and dad wouldn't have hung any. I admire people with artist talent. I have none. I can arrange things so that they balance and look neat, but I have no ability to create art of any kind. These things are supposed to balance out, so I'm sure I must have some other talent. Hopefully someday I'll discover it. :D

That is a very pretty dress, a great design.
