Citrine Bread

Tunic as top - INC, swap
Skirt - unknown, thrifted
pumps - John Fluevog

No this isn't a post about the bizarre fruity asian bread pastries, but a fusion of my day and my outfit. I came across this skirt and squealed with happiness. I'm a long time lover of watermelon-y things. This rind-like dyed skirt was so perfect. I don't think I even tried it on. It also has no tag or other markings than a letter and number series. I think it might be boutique or a sample piece.

I was racking my brain last night for a good pairing and thought this tunic would work great tucked in. In hindsight this outfit would have been perfection for Fruits Week. I don't know what in the world is going on with my hair today. Ally mentioned in my comments yesterday that green is underrated! I so agree, because green is such a fabulous color that can give an impact as great as red if used right.

For the bread part of today, D and I had lunch at Panera and dropped by the grocery to pick up - what else, bread! Any big plans for the weekend? I'm hoping to try and see Cowboys and Aliens again. Happy Almost-Friday!

Edited to add: Yes, this is super matchy matchy. ...and I love it.

  2. It is matchy, but in a FABULOUS way. I love the yellow and green and I have to disagree with you about your hair. I think it's cute! This outfit would have been great for Fruits Week. Maybe next time. I love the whole thing. It might be one of my favorites for you (other than the military look--that's still my fave). Love it love it!

  4. I was just thinking of you today vis-a-vis my gold fruit necklaces. You and fruit are forever connected in my mind.

  5. @ Wendy - Lol! I am kind of fruity. And bit obsessed with food and fashion inspiration. I have to admit I was a food blogger first!

    And I had a Sierra turkey at Panera today and it was quite tasty!

  7. What a fabulous skirt! I love the stripeyness of it and the color is fab. This weekend we are celebrating my mom's birthday with a BBQ. We are also getting carpet laid in our upstairs rooms, which means I get to put my closet/craftroom together!

  10. The colors look great on you. This is a really, really cute outfit. I love green colors. At one time in my life I would not have been caught dead in them, but lately I have been loving them. Good luck on seeing C&Aliens.

  11. These colors look amazing on you. I think maybe because of the contrast with your cute hair?
