I liked that dress-over-skinny-jeans combo the other day enough to want to try it again. Another exuberant, somewhat short dress that I wanted to tone down to suit the start of spring, this time wearing it over slim black jeans and with shoes instead of boots. I'm quite pleased with this, finding it quite different from wearing the dress with leggings (as I have in the past) or on its own over black tights.
I apologize for the poor visibility in these shots --I'm pleased with this new spot for the self-timing snaps, but the light coming through the doorway shut down the automatic flash. Below I tried wearing a jean jacket (Gap) over the dress/tunic.
As for the silk scarf, I really wanted some colour against the black-and-white, and given how bold the graphic on the dress is, I figured a bold colour was called for.
