In my never ending quest to have a closet full of wearable, versatile, colorful clothes I went shopping. First stop was the GAP where I tried on the dress above. The print didn’t photograph well with my camera phone but the dress is navy and white with an elasticized top. It has a decorative draw string in the middle of the bust, with wooden beads at the end. It also has pockets!!. Yeah, who doesn’t love a dress with pockets? I’m 5’6 and the dress stops about 2-3inches from my ankle so I wouldn’t consider it a maxi dress, but it does have that easy, breezy maxi feel to it.
The sleeveless orange and tan tie-front shirt, the green printed pocket top and the white pants were all from The Limited.
The pants were a little too thigh and hip spectactular for work. They were also about two inches too short.
The tie-front top I liked for under a jacket or nice sweater.
I loved the print on the green top and I actually liked it paired with the white pants for a casual night out. Quality wise the green top seemed a little slight and there were some loose threads around the neck that were a litlle iffy.
I ended up getting the dress from the GAP, the sleeveless orange tie-front blouse and the three shells above which were on sale at The Limited. Although I liked the green pocket top and the white pants together, the top was $50 and the pants were $70 and since I wasn’t that crazy about them I decided to pass, which just means I’ll wait until they go on sale and buy them then :).
I seriously love all of these looks! I especially love the look with the green top!LynnCARMEN VOGUE

Lovely pairings with the white pants. And you're right–they are showing off all your hard work in the gym! WERK!
