Green has mostly been dismissed from my closet. There are times when I try to convince myself it's refreshing and makes my complexion more peaches and cream by contrast. But the truth is, it brings out the not-so-lovely shadows under my eyes and casts an overall sallow undertone.
But! There are also times when I don't care and am drunk on too much crewlade. Such as when I learned of the Metallic Giraffe Day Coat. I hunted for months, maybe a year, until I found it in my size and miraculously, it was in mint condition.
And then there are times when I know I can't pull it off. Case in point, the Madelene dress. I really don't want to be so sensible, especially after Shopping with M's review. It looks so comfy, cute and casually tailored on her. Waaah!

I'm wearing the stripe sweater dress with the Ashbury perfect shirt and my most recent favorite shoes, the Clifton booties.
For some reason, I was pleasantly surprised by the pockets even though the online pic clearly shows the model with her hand in one. It's basically the Jules dress in a sweater format. For my comfort zone, it's just long enough to be work appropriate. I'd say the knit is 12 gauge, about the weight of most sweaters such as the heart me. It's fashioned with a wide, open, boatneck neckline, dropped shoulders and extra long cuffs (I have them folded up once).
It's fitting me looser than how it's fitting the model but that's OK by me. I like how it's not clinging to every ... thing. It feels as comfortable as a favorite sweater or sweatshirt for the weekend. Slightly sloppy. But again, that's OK by me.
