Brown and Teal

Dress: NY&Co.  |  Necklace: Nordstrom  |  Bracelet: Forever 21  |  Wedges: Target (shop)

This is for Kayla’s Day 13 Challenge: Neutral with a pop of color.
I know I just wore this dress on the blog, but I took off the belt and threw on a fancy necklace in hopes that you wouldn’t mind.  Did it work?  🙂  I guess summer finally decided to arrive in San Diego.  It’s been hot and kinda humid this week, and all I want to do is wear dresses.

I’ve already begun a marathon of a weekend, which includes almost 15 hours of singing and killing my fingers on my guitar, a women’s event at church where we’re each bringing a dish made from a classic family recipe, and friends staying at our house.  I needed one of my trusty dresses that feel like pajamas to help me make it through.  Then, add one of my favorite colors to accessorize with, teal, and call it a day.

I’m thankful that as impacted as my weekend seems, I can still find little pockets to be still and to breathe.  …and write a blog post.  😀  Happy weekend!

    No need to apologize–you're showing how to remix and that's half the fun, right? The necklace is darling and your weekend sounds exhausting. Hopefully you and pajama dress make it through!

    This does work! I love the brown and teal together. Reminds me of my sisters wedding colors, very pretty. I can't remember if I already told you – you and your comfy dresses inspired me to get one the other day at the Goodwill! It's a jersey dress and soooo comfy.. I actually wore it to bed after the first time I wore it.. no need to change! Perfect! -Rachel (DSI)

    Love jersey dresses for that reason!  They're so comfy.  And that necklace looks amazing with the brown.

    Oooh, I can't wait to see your new dress.  I think it's hilarious that you slept in it, Rachel!  Our wedding colors were also brown and teal, with orange as well.  I was trying to give the teal a rest over the last few years but I can't help it.  I'll always love it.
