Stripes and florals have quickly become my favorite way to mix prints. If you're new to mixing prints, you should try it. It's easy! Simply pick a striped piece and a floral piece with similar or complementary colors. Ya know what would make this outfit better... black & white polka dot shoes. Right?!

Scuba Knit

I was looking online for some inexpensive dresses that I could use as work wardrobe "fillers". I came across this dress on the Forever 21 website. I loved the shape of it and the price was right. The only thing that concerned me was the fabric. It is a scuba knit. I've never been in a scuba suit, but I can image it is tight and/or hot and weird to wear outside of water. I decided to tried it anyway and I'm so glad I did. I don't know if it is "real" scuba knit or whatever, but it is perfect for wearing year round. It is light enough to wear on a 85 degree day like today and thick enough to wear in cold weather. I can wear it the way I'm wearing it here, or with a cardigan or blazer over it, or with a blouse under it. I bought this dress in fuchsia as well. I am contemplating ordering it in black and coral (and maybe the blue and red). Is that overkill? Maybe? Maybe not. Anyway, don't be surprised if you see the other colors show up in future posts.
