Lookbook: Not-So Clockwork Orange

#ShamelessBlogPromotion ~ get me to 900 Likes on Facebook!

Also, please take a second to read this. I was interviewed!
If you read my newsletter, and I hope you do, then you might know that I plan on showcasing more outfit posts this month. I like to vary my blog a lot with inspiring style posts, makeup and muses, reviews, featured fashionistas, etc. Because of that, I don't have the space (nor the time) to do a lookbook post often, but for the month of March I will be giving you muses a bit more of me.So to start, this is what I wore over the weekend to do some house hunting. Now, I house hunt not necessarily because I'm trying to buy a house, but because I really enjoy looking at interiors. I get a lot of inspiration from seeing open houses that are staged--they always look so put together like a magazine ad or Martha Stewart promo. Plus, seeing the walk-in closets is just a girl's dream.

My new Oscar de la Renta sunnies that I got for a steal at TJ Maxx
Other accessories ~ Asos horned collar necklace & Asos disc crown headband
The orange lace dress is from F21, the shearling booties are Charlotte Russe, and the dot tights were a gift from the hubs from Tights Please. The black blazer is Rory Beca, and I initially had it on, but took it off after a bit because the weather was surprisingly beautiful over the weekend. I mean, it was 70 degrees in March!
Love these tights--it's all in the details, isn't it?
This photo of my shoes has got to be one of my favorites ever. I love the composition and the contrast against the dirt and rocks on the ground.How is the weather where you live?
What do you think of this look?

  1. Very beautiful, love the bright colour :) And those booties are lush! You look fab. 'Liked you on FB, hope you get to your target! I could do with some more sunshine around here, but I know it will come! I got caught in a hale storm, it was painful, haha! But, then the sun came out, so I can't complain :) Have a sweet day! xx

  10. I love your dress! That is also quite an interesting necklace!

    The weather here is beautiful was well. we haven't had much of a winter, it's only snowed 3 times and was over 70 degrees a few days! Today it is windy out, but without the wind, it would be a nice day :)

  16. This is quite a funky look - the summery dress and wintery shoes wouldn't normally be my first choice but this works. And I love your necklace!!!
    I've never been house hunting except for when I actually needed a house - and had SUCH a shock at the state of some houses that I had no inspiration, ahah.
    Weather here in NZ is so-so. Some gorgeous sunshine, then rain or wind the next day!

  25. February was a crazy month in terms of weather here in NC - there was snow, 80-degree sun, AND rainy thunderstorms! Now that it's March, though, I think it's safe to say spring is officially here! :) The weather is beautiful.

    I love your lookbook posts, Cheryl! This is such a fun outfit. Orange is not my favorite color but I don't think this shade can technically be considered orange...perhaps that's why it works so well with the stockings without coming off as Halloweeny. Super creative. :)
