Remember the other day when I was all, OMG, I have the best outfit ever planned for Memorial Day? Yeah, cue the Debbie Downer trombone, cause that didn’t happen.
We found the dress and it just wasn’t right. It was a little too revealing in all of the wrong places, and it just wasn’t what I wanted it to be, so whatever. I was going to wear my black and red backup dress, but someone had to get all fancy and buy a blue and pink checkered shirt with an amazingly beautiful pink tie. You tell me how that matches red and black.
Imagine the above with a beautiful navy suit. Yeah, the red and black dress is being thrown back into the suitcase.
So, I found a ridiculously pink dress and created this little ensemble:
I’m not 100% sold on this outfit, yet. The pink is just….really pink, and while I like it, I’m a little nervous it screams “LOOK AT ME! OVER HERE, IN THE PINK! HERE I AM!!” I’m hoping when I put it on with the little black cardigan and the cute wedges that it will break up some of the color and ease my mind a little bit.
I got a backup dress, too. I can’t find a picture of it anywhere, but it’s cute and it’s black and white, so it’s a smidge more subtle. I’m undecided at this point and am pretty sure I won’t make a decision until Monday morning when it’s time to leave.
What would you do? Would you brave the color in honor of Spring, or go for a more subdued look with a classic black and white?
