Rebecca, if you're referring to the waythis outfit looks on you I think it'sjust great. Very flattering. This is alook I've considered but haven't triedyet--the leggings with a big top or dress. I see a lot of the youngr womenwearing it but you definitely have mademe think I can pull it off. I like it!
Sandy, I've gotta quite worrying about it and get to church! It's not about me, anyway. I DID worry about people thinking I was trying to look too young....
I think this is a GREAT look Rebecca. It looks "current" not too young. I have a tunic and crop pants outfit that I wore a lot this past summer and I felt good in it every time. I think I need a dress like yours to carry the look through this winter.Darla
Hi there-great idea to pair it with the leggings, it looks so much more stylish this way! x
The leggings wear a great idea...You look Great~ Love Heather
Rebecca, I think that it looks very fresh paired with leggings. What about wearing the dress under one of your vests/waistcoats? Would you feel comfortable wearing the top button unbuttoned too? I'm wondering if it might look better if you had more of a V-neck opening to the neckline.I love the buttons - how fun!
Rebecca dear you look GREAT!!!!! As you said to me you're brave my friend :)And those buttons, so cute!!!!!xoxo
Kari, I DO prefer V-necks. So I tried your suggestion. Unfortunately, it just didn't make a very fine "V"--the weight of the button or something.
Just wanted to comment on looking "too young." Is that possible? I quit worrying about that a while back. I have a shorter dress that has a handkerchief hem--meant to go with leggings. I've worn it that way, but now am rather coupling it with a peasant style skirt of like fabrics with a long lace top over it. It makes a very WW1 sort of look (my favorite) when it was really intended to be a leggings dress. Amazing what you can do with creativity! Keep up the bargain shopping!
Lori, How creative! I watch and admire OTHER people come up with these types of outfits, but when I come to my own, I can't "SEE" it--it never occurs to me (until it's too late)!
Rebecca, I think this outfit is very nice on you actually. I love the look, it looks simple and casual and very comfortable and light! You look great!
Hope to return your visit soon! Thanks for leaving a message...
