"There was a great rustling of tissue paper"

I wore this outfit planning for different shoes.  That’s because I wore it the day I went to the post office to pick up my new Fluevog Heather boots, which are a gorgeous shade of teal.  This version of the outfit is very muted, while the teal boots added a nice punch of color.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get a picture with the boots on, but don’t worry – you’ll be seeing them tons.

I love this dress, but I often wish that it was just a few inches longer.  Today, I decided to take the navy modal full slip that came with my Ella Moss dress and layer it underneath this dress, and over a black half-cami.  I love the effect.  It let the hem be just a bit longer, and added some extra interest to the neckline.  I see myself getting many full slips in the future.

I don’t think anything gets me quite as excited as opening up a new pair of Fluevogs. You’ll be seeing them in outfits shortly.
