Outfit: Black Leather Jacket, Floral Flippy Dress, and Bright Yellow Tights

Faux Leather Jacket, Purple Floral Dress, Yellow Tights, and Black Wedge Boots

Oh how I love this purple-y floral bell sleeved (which you can't see, but you can see the bell sleeved goodness here) dress. Unfortunately I'm pretty sure the length shrunk somehow. No, I have not grown. I think I'm far past that point in life. I'm actually super sad about how short the dress is right now. Does it seem shorter to you or am I making it up? It can't just be that it's cinched in with a jacket either. I've been comparing these photos with the ones where I wore this dress with a jean jacket. Ugh. It was just so perfect and not so short that I couldn't wear it to work. Now I'm thinking it's way shorter than it used to be. I air dried it though, so how can this even happen? Maybe it's in my head but my butt did seem to be much more "out" while walking around Las Vegas in it last month...

Anyway, these are photos of one of my Las Vegas outfits from our trip in December. It was quite cold while we were there and I wish I'd had a heavier jacket but this black faux leather one is what I had. I threw it on over my floral dress, added bright yellow tights, and my comfy black wedge boots. My Harrah's card on a lanyard is my "beautiful" accessory in this look too. I apologize.

I hope you're all having a great weekend so far. We're kind of iced in for the morning because Atlanta got a little bit of snow and ice last night into this morning. There are real live flurries happening as I type this! Unfortunately the roads suck because we're in the south and don't have the equipment to fully prepare for this kind of weather. Our power went out last night too but fortunately it's back on today. I plan on lazing about the apartment and enjoying a relaxing day.

Happy Saturday!

I love yellow tights! They can be such a fun 'neutral', as odd as that sounds. I've had dresses that shrunk too much to be decent too... Serves me right for never following the care instructions properly ;) x

I adore this outfit! I love yellow tights too!! And I think they look so amazing with that dress!!
The dress does seem to have become a bit shorter, but I wouldn't have thought about it had you not mentioned it!
Much love,
Mona

Amazing pictures and a lovely well put together look. I adore the print. The yellow tights are the best. I recently got a pair but only wore them once so far because it is too hot.

I'd like to go to Vegas someday! Also, I hate when things shrink. I also hate when it's so subtle that you're not sure if you just haven't worn it in a while and forgot how short it was or if it actually did shrink. It doesn't look super short, though!

By the way....thanks so much for your kind words on my post! Thanks for understanding. :)

DUDE isn't it the worst when things shrink? Like you're wondering if you've gained weight or gotten taller but you know you haven't, and then you're still the same size when you're out shopping... it kind of stinks a lot. I'm sorry it's so short, but it's not noticeable. Especially with those bright and cute tights!

I still think the dress is a good length :) Looks fab with those yellow tights.

This is such a cute look. At least the solid tights help the shortness factor. I hate when stuff shrinks mysteriously >_<
