The Jersey Dress

There has been a variety of colours that really speak to me this summer, including coral, teal, and chartreuse. Whether off-trend or on-trend, none of that matters because I’ve loved wearing them more than ever this year. But, to be fair, there’s not any colour forsaken in my wardrobe.

This cotton dress is a vivid coloured jersey that’s incredibly easy to wear. The easy to wear dress was a great alternative to my summer maxi—it's an ideal and breathable choice for daytime.

Isn't it funny how our tastes change over time: our personal style and even food flavours can undergo a slight makeover. If I remember far back enough I do recall a period when I might not have worn large-scale prints or ultra feminine florals.    
Creative Nostalgia
I thought there was no better reason to break out the 3D floral creation that I made around this time last year. The revamped cardigan was one of three style options that I had in mind for this look—opting toward a simpler colour palette, I decided to pair my chartreuse dress with the black and white combination.

Although, recently experiencing a great deal of busy times, I am hoping to get back to a few art projects that I’ve had to put on hold. The juices are flowing and there’s an abundance of creativity in the works. Not every angle of it may be blogged about, yet charily documented elsewhere. Perhaps, it’s a special save for a “rainy day” future posting.


*I am taking a short holiday to celebrate my birthday (officially, this Friday), and I will see you back on the blog next week. Enjoy your weekend!*

  25. You have such a knack for wearing bright colours, Madison - I don't think there is a shade under the sun that you couldn't pull off! But this yellow is particularly lovely on you, I must say. And such a wonderful choice for hot summer days!
