WIW - a little different for me.

So...I don't wear this silhouette of dress. I don't really care for flower prints unless it's roses and these colors aren't normally me either. But i don't know. This dress really appealed to me? Maybe it's because the print is kind of cheeky? I tried to tone down the va-va-voom with playful socks and sandals. And i like that since it's clingy it isn't too short or low cut.

So yeah. Not sure what else to say. >.> I wore this!

    Very pretty!

    I love that the color of your socks immediately draws the eye. It does an interesting visual trick, keeping the eye from lingering on the shape of the dress, de-bombshelling it in a really different way. Really clever and wonderful! The dress looks beautiful! The outfit is spectacular!

    Fabulous, Nicole.

  • Angie replied 11 years ago

    KILLER. So pinned.

    One of my Nicole faves to date. I guess because it's much simpler and less accessorized than your usual style. Don't get me wrong! You are Queen Maximal and pull that vibe off with immense panache! Personally, you know I bat for Team Minimal - so I love this outfit a little extra :)

    Perhaps your new pink neon jacket will work over it too?

  • nicoleb replied 11 years ago

    Angie - i thought that also! UPS promises the postal person will bring it to my doorstep tomorrow. So i will try them together then for sure. Thanks for pinning me. :D

    Sarah - thank you <3

    I love socks and sandals. I miss my heels, :(. I have a couple of floral dresses from Zara, one is body con, definite given me some ideas.

  • Jaime replied 11 years ago

    I like it! I am always drawn to socks and sandals even though I wouldn't be able to pull it off myself.

  • Jonesy replied 11 years ago

    The dress is really fab on you! So gorgeous and springy, and the fit is perfect.

  • replied 11 years ago

    So adorable! (Sorry, I can't not call you adorable!)

  • Kiwichik replied 11 years ago

    And you wore it well

  • Wellingtongirl replied 11 years ago

    perfect! whimsical and cute! I am thinking the other way round... the shape of the dress makes the overall outfit from being overly cute. Simply love it!

  • Deborah replied 11 years ago

    Nicole this is just gorgeous. I really like the dress on you ad the sandals and socks just add the edge needed.

  • fashionista replied 11 years ago

    I LOOOOOOVE this!!!!

  • Lantana replied 11 years ago

    Looks super. Perfect pattern placement.

  • replied 11 years ago

    I love the simple lines of this dress on you. The socks and sandals totally work for your style, and I love the unexpected neon bib necklace, too!

  • cciele replied 11 years ago

    The socks and sandals really do the trick! Definitely a different look for you, but you are rocking it.

    Not you, but totally you, IYKWIM. Love the socks and the jewelry and the HAIR!

  • Vicki replied 11 years ago

    Nicole, this is both feminine and playful and highlights your own unique style. I love the heeled sandals with socks and your dress is a perfect figure-flattering fit. Happy Summer, Nicole.

  • nicoleb replied 11 years ago

    Thanks ladies! You never comments never fail to make me smile. :)

  • Meredith1953 replied 11 years ago

    The dress is awesome on you and I am amazed at how cute the socks and sandals look with it!

  • Reneeb replied 11 years ago

    The dress is a pretty color and looks gorgeous on you. Love the socks you look like a model.

  • Scarlet replied 11 years ago

    That dress looks awesome on you! You should wear that silhouette.

  • crazyone replied 11 years ago

    I really like this! And the dress is a great silhouette on you. And good for you for being cool enough to pull off socks and sandals in a fashion-forward way :)

  • Tanya replied 11 years ago

    Love! Saw the dress at the store and did not think much of it, but you make it look amazing.

  • CocoLion replied 11 years ago

    I am endlessly impressed with your fashion and styling skills. You are so creative. If there were a Fashion Blogger reality show, I'd vote you on, week after week.

  • cheryl replied 11 years ago

    Love this, different, but great!

  • Irene replied 11 years ago

    I got this dress too! Though I won't be half as creative as you are with it.

  • Mochi replied 11 years ago

    Lovely, fab, fun, cheeky, breezy. mod...you can style it a billion different ways (I see you wearing it with knee high doc martens, for example, but really, you could pull off anything).

    You have the most lovely body type for so many types of clothes, your pic quality and poses are just fantastic and of course your style is always amazing.
