Colorful Dots and Coral.

Just like I did with this summer dress and this other dress, I am back with a third Dress most suited for Spring and Summer, but that I made work for Fall, also.

As you can see from the first collage photo, earlier this Spring I paired my Polka Dot Navy Dress (with the paint splashes across the skirt and the chest) with my Green Blazer and Matchy Green, Strappy Pumps. I also kept the original (black) belt that that dress has. A few weeks ago for a work Fall day, I paired it with my Coral Cardigan and a Navy/Silver/Turquoise Statement Necklace. I added a super skinny Periwinkle Belt over the Cardigan (to bring out the Periwinkle stripes of the Dress). A little Pattern-Mixing with my Black Argyle Tights and my Patent Leather Black+Navy Oxfords and I was done. Pairing some Brights with Dark Colors for Fall, sure why not!? Are you still wearing Coral or Pinks this Fall?

  12. It really looks nice with dark tights and shoes. They allow the dress and cardigan to shine!

  14. I really like your "now" look of this dress. I think the darker colors in your shoes and tights, really helps to balance and add some weight to all the color. The pink also allows the boldness to come through! Another great look from ADA! Thanks for joining in on the Celebrate Southern link up fun too dear! xoxo
