camouflaged.

{Dress: Similar | Shirt: Similar}






Could I have picked a better outfit or a better location?  I mean this really was a match made in heaven.  I just happened to pack this dress for our trip to my in-laws and my in-laws have this gorgeous rose garden.  Yes this garden is in their yard! It was perfect.

I actually got this dress when I was in China several years ago.  But I never knew how to wear it.  When I have that problem, I turn to my wardrobe workhorse...my chambray shirt.  Honestly when I have crazy pants, a difficult skirt or just trouble getting dressed, I turn to this shirt.  It goes with everything!

And sorry for the bags under my eyes...sheesh you would think I never got sleep!  Sometimes the light just hits me all wrong.  But I did just spring for some fancy eye concealer from Laura Mercier and I'm hoping it is a miracle worker.  I'll let you know how it goes.

Do you guys have anything you swear by?  I'm really just using you guys for good makeup tips...I'm kidding of course!

Today I'm linking up with The Pleated Poppy.
