The Blue Martini


Necklace: Old, I like THIS option too| Dress: c/o HERE| Handbag: Kate Spade, other options HERE & HERE| Silk tie-up sandals: c/o HERE (size up)

Now that A P R I L has officially arrived (I’m still kinda sorta in disbelief about this fact …) I am determined to dress in living COLOUR on every possible opportunity! Yes Babes, spring has sprung, that means bring on the COLOUR!!! Plus I noticed that I’ve been in a black & white rut (see my posts for last month) it's high time for me to get back to my color loving self!
First up? A fantastically simple off the shoulder dress in the sweetest powder blue. This OTS number is warm weather perfection as it is lightweight (unlined) and versatile.  How so? Well it can be worn as intended - as a dress (Beware: it has side slits), or alternatively as a tunic (I’m picturing it with skinny jeans), and as a blouse (another look with this idea coming soon😏).
For my first go in it, I decided to style it with orange. Not only is orange the star of 2017, but it was also time for me to break out my new silk tie-up sandals that I’ve been crushing on in secret for over a month….  Seriously, I struggle to find the time to blog/share items as they are acquired 😋Am I alone in this?
If you’re a blogger with a full personal schedule but you’ve mastered the secret of instantaneously photographing and blogging items on the spot, please do share! Alas, I’m drowning in ‘new arrivals’ and time to share them in a timely fashion seems to be on the run-LOL!
Until next time,
XO
