What I'm Wearing: The Life Aquatic

Today was all about mixing colors in the same color family. I started with this electric blue skirt and went from there mixing in the ice blue top and tights and capping it off with a deep teal cardigan. I kinda feel like a mythical sea creature in this outfit. This is the part where I break into "Part of Your World" from The Little Mermaid (my favorite Disney movie). Feel free to cover your ears just thinking about it.

 The chunky necklace pulls all of the colors together nicely.
 Skirt: Salvation Army, Top: Dress Barn, Cardigan: New York & Company, 
Tights: I can't remember, Necklace: Maurices, Shoes: Loft

  9. This colour family is a kind of special and don't match all skin and hair colours. Those are not my colours but I love to see them on other people.
    You look gorgeous in blue. I like how you've mixed all the items together and adorable necklace.
    You look very feminine and beautiful.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  12. Gorgeous! The shades of blue you chose are super calming and welcoming. I think that mythical creature is a Siren. So Part of This World works for me. LOL!

  13. Does look very mermaidy :) I just added a Disney station to my Pandora, and "Part of Your World" came up, and I sang at the top of my lungs while making dinner. Luckily no one was around haha :)

  16. Seriously, WHEN are they going to release The Little Mermaid from the vault? I want it! On Blu Ray! So that I can have totally awesome sing-a-long parties (with or without Mr. CP). WHEN, KASSI?! WHEN!?

    p.s. I love your mermaidesque outfit. It's so very aquatic and magical!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,

Kassi
