Pull it through.

Monday, August 6, 2012

Happy Monday to you all! 
Hope you are well rested from the weekend, ready to tackle another week ahead. 
This weekend my husband and I went for an early dinner, late lunch outside by these awesome waterfalls. 
The place is just beautiful and when I go out it is all about ambiance..I need a good setting,  and good food of course but if the food is good but the ambiance sucks, I will most likely not be back.
Anyway, I decided to wear this DVF dress that I had bought a couple years back which I think I've only worn once before. The whole "dresses with pants" trend lately gave me the idea to wear it as a top instead of just a dress as intended. Accidentally, the dress peeked out from the bottom of my shorts when I was trying it on and I decided it looked kinda cool..and that my friends is the story of how this outfit was created!
The rest is just the icing on top. 
Whatcha' think?

Dress (worn as shirt)- DVF. same color scheme here.
Shorts-Levi's via urban outfitters. similar ones here
Heels-Tano. great ones here.
Cuff-Asos. great one here
