Goodness!  Please excuse the puffy eyes and tired smiles.  This is what spending hours underwater for scuba practice will do to you.  Of course, it's all worth it.  :)

As for my outfit, I wanted to change it up a little.  This strapless hot pink dress is usually a little too flashy to wear in the daytime, but I decided to dress it down by layering this lacy top over it.  It actually looks like I just draped a bit ol' doily over myself and belted it, doesn't it?  I guess whether or not you're a fan of doilies, I do think it totally made the outfit.  Score +1 for the doily!

Oh, and looking at these pictures, I don't think these shoes really went with the rest of the outfit -- the cork just throws it off a bit.  Lesson learned.

  2. This is SO cute and creative, Kileen! You know how Indian weddings usually consist of elaborate saris? The fabric, colors, etc. of this outfit reminds me so much of that. Fabulous job!

  3. I am so in love with this ensemble!  The effect of the blouse overlaid upon the strapless dress is simply stunning!  One day, post pregnancy, I am going to try this :)

  13. I love anything lacy and the pop of bright colour underneath is really unexpected, I usually think of pairing lace, especially white with something muted like a soft pink.  I love this combo though :)

    Hi Kileen, I also think this outfit is very creative (and it works!), and I like the addition of the cameo necklace as well.

  24. I actually thought that the lacy bit was part of the dress, had no clue it was two items! That's the thing with cork, it's fun and casual but it has a laid back feel that doesn't always work well with say... doilies hah. Still super cute though... and I wish I had a pair of those shoes!
