Style Peek: striped scarf + black maxi + coffee cardi

Happy Friday! I couldn't be more happy that the weekend is here...there's definitely been a few ups and downs lately. Ups = lovely Easter dinner with family, hosting girl's night full of laughs and talks, some fun new items for summer, counting down to our honeymoon in Florida (3 weeks - yay!). Downs = getting rear-ended and having to go the doctor twice for relief for my neck and back...okay - that was the only down! How are you doing?

Winnipeg's weather has been up and down all spring so this was my first maxi dressing of the season back when it was HOT! I picked it up in the fall at H&M during my trip to Calgary. Don't laugh - I know it's more of a midi on me! I paired it with a cropped coffee cardi, brightly coloured scarf and thin red belt. It's a little bulky overall, I think I would streamline the look a little next time. Thoughts?

  1. Love this look! I agree a bit with the assertion that it's a bit bulky but all I would have done is maybe wear the belt on the outside of your cardigan next time - help cinch the whole waist in, ya know? Looks great as is though, too!!

  2. So sorry to hear about your being rear-ended. Hope your neck recovers soon.
    On an happier note, this outfit is so lovely Lenore. Love the colour of your scarf. What a beauty. Happy Friday dear. xo

  3. It looks lovely! I think the only tweak I would make is to try belting the cardigan over the dress.....
