Though I really like the print of this dress, it's not a favorite of mine. I feel there is just something a bit off about the neckline. It seems a bit too in between, neither high enough for my liking nor low enough for my liking. I do like the sleeves and I adore the navy blue with the red and mint green leaves. Perhaps I just need to wear it a bit more to get used to the neckline?
I paired the dress, which debuted in this post back in Spring, with navy accessories this time including my fun little 40's round straw tilt hat with its lovely gossamer veil. The entirety of Denver has been rather veiled looking lately, as smoke from the wildfires in California, Oregon, and Washington (and Canada?) have caused a haze to appear even here in the middle of the US. Having grown up in southern California I know the threat of wildfires well, I remember days growing up when the world outside the window looked so yellow as to appear like a sepia toned photograph. The Rocky Mountains, a significant part of the landscape here have been hidden by the haze. I really want to get up to the mountains again soon, perhaps to see the aspens turn yellow this fall. There is nothing like a nice drive through the mountains amongst the rioting colors of fall.
