Fauxionable Outfit – Teal with Yellow

Now that it’s slightly warmer, it’s time to bust out my dresses again. I wore my teal maxi dress (worn here) for casual Friday and also to a housewarming party this past weekend albeit slight tweaks on each day. Paired the outfit with my Keds for Kate Spade on Friday and didn’t wear a belt to the housewarming party since I knew I’d be binging and stuffing myself silly. 😉

By far, I tend to pair teal either in the same color palette with greens or in this outfit teal with yellow. Does anyone have any suggestion on any other color combination? I tried pairing it with my navy blazer but it didn’t look any good, just dreary hence the gray blazer. I’d love to try some other color combo in the near future aside from neutrals and would appreciate any suggestions. 🙂

Fauxionable Outfit – Polka Dots & Print Take Two

When I saw Marionberry’s trend of the month link up was yellow, I had an outfit in mind that I would wear and post. Somehow, the yellow top that I had in mind can’t be found anywhere. Gremlins, anyone? My only other yellow top was the DvF for Gap Kids printed top, so I tried to make that work appropriate by layering that under my new tweed jacket. I felt something was amiss still and decided to layer yet another blouse underneath the yellow top. In my experiments with mixing prints and patterns, I’ve come to realize that polka dots works as a great neutral, so here’s my second outfit featuring polka dots and print! (the first was here.) You can check out the other yellow outfits from the link up here.

Fauxionable Outfit – Black & Yellow

Yes, I do realize that it’s September but the weather here in DC is still somewhat sunny and warm like it’s Summer, thus I’m dressing according to the weather! (just trying to enjoy & savor every bit of the Summer weather, really.)
