Two years ago, I started wearing dresses on a very regular basis. The last time I wore a dress prior to 2010 was my wedding dress and that was a quite a few years prior. Instead, I wore skirts.
When I saw the Capra dress (below), I knew I had to have it! The splash of deep teal, black, shades of brown and one shade that looks like a rusty coral.
The plan was to wear the Capra dress with the BCBGeneration Parade Platform Pumps in bronze leather. [Sidebar - I realized that I did not own any metallic leather pumps in brown/bronze. *gasp* How was I living??]
Well, while coming down the stairs one day, I tumbled over 4 steps, injuring my knees and left leg and foot. Thank God nothing was broken. So I opted to wear the Calvin Klein Dolly in Navy because flats were not an option. I love the color of this shoe, even though it is not a true navy. The color is more like a very smoky teal.

What I learned from this OOTD
I need more cropped cardigans. The cardigan I wore is a lovely color and brings out the matching shade, but it was overwhelming. I wore it because the place that I was going to is either really cold or really hot and, sometimes, at the same time in different rooms.
