Sweet as Honey

Springtime, flowers blooming, and bumble bees.  It’s all connected.  Caroline was really feeling the season in this vibrant dress with a bright yellow, sleeveless, collared top and black and white striped full skirt.  Seriously, it’s like staring into the sun, perfect for getting attention.  She paired it with black, velvet peep toe pumps (the traditional shoe of the femme fatale) and an eye catching, studded, zipper black clutch.  Only to be worn by those with confidence this outfit should come with a warning label.  Enjoy the warmth and flowers of the season but be careful you don’t get stung.

Caroline came by for another meeting today but it felt more like a girl’s afternoon hangout with talk of shopping, mutual acquaintances, and dating.  And her outfit definitely has that sunny afternoon, lunching on the terrace, relaxed vibe.  A pair of flattering, form-fitted, tailored jeans and a gorgeous white, floral, peplum top with a series of feminine, ruffled pleats down the front giving the impression of softness.  An impression immediately called into question with the addition of bright red, ankle strap heels that mimic her bright red lipstick and a leather, hard edged, metal-studded envelope clutch in matching blue.  Caroline can be a woman full of contradictions, and this outfit reminds me that every person has a lot of sides.
