Once-Inspired Outfit

Yesterday I reviewed the book Once by Anna Carey, the second book in the Eve series.  So today's post is an outfit inspired by Eve, our protagonist.  In Once, Eve becomes a princess and is required to visit various places during the day--gotta keep up appearances, you know.  So today's outfit focuses on that.  I designed a day outfit suitable for a princess visiting her subjects.

Day Dress Outfit 
 Sweet and girly...just like a princess.

So let's break it down:
  • A floral day dress, kind of reminiscent of the 50s.  It's sweet but not too soft (with colors like red and black thrown in) and easy to move around in.  The thin belt is perfect to accentuate the waist.
  • Simple black ballet flats with a bow.  Of course this dress could easily be paired with heels, but the flats give it more of a day look.  And someone in flats seems less intimidating--just the message a princess wants to send to please the crowds.
  • A bright orange clutch brings some "pop" into the outfit.  And doesn't this dress just look so much better with a clutch than a large satchel purse?
  • Delicate peach nail polish--so sweet and clean-looking.
  • Some stacked bracelets in traditional pearl (a princess must have pearls!) and black pearl and a few bangles.  I love the flower on the black pearl bracelet--it counterbalances the peach flowers in the dress so nicely!  These bracelets add a kick to the outfit while keeping it semi-traditional.
  • Black stud earrings.  A princess wouldn't wear giant dangly earrings during the day--soft and sweet with studs.

So what do you think?  Could you see a princess in this outfit?

I'll be back tomorrow to review the third and final book in the Eve series, Rise.  See you then!
