Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone-Inspired Outfit

Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone is an odd book to review during Valentine's Week, but for some reason I am often drawn to murder mysteries.  But by designing a cute outfit today, maybe I'll make up for that???

Today's outfit is based off of Amelia.  When she was found dead on the side of the road, she was wearing a sundress.  That, added to the summer setting, was the outfit's inspiration.  And here it is:

Let's break it down:

  • A sundress was an obvious choice.  I love the colors in this dress--orangey/red with a blue backing.  Very summery and light.
  • The orange sandals complement the dress and reinforce that this is an outfit for warm weather.
  • A deep brown belt adds some shape to the dress and keeps this from being a "warm color" overload.
  • The arrow earrings felt perfect for the setting--warm summer nights--and kept the outfit pretty casual (after all, Amelia Anne is walking on a road shortly before her death).
  • A simple gold bracelet rounds out the outfit with an extra, girly accessory.
To me, this outfit shows a girly yet not-over-the-top side...what do you think?

Tomorrow I'll have my Friday Find--this time it's fashion-related!  See you then!
