Dress on a Bridge








This is not just a gratuitous shot.  I've struggled with what type of cami to layer under this dress and stumbled up on this sheer camisole that worked perfectly.  When thinking about coverage, sheer or translucent may not seem like an obvious choice, but it can work.

Apparently Pittsburgh has more bridges than Venice!  Here we are on the Mission St. Bridge.

This dress is just beautifully cut and I love the color.  The neckline is a bit revealing, but with this light grey sheer cami its no longer an issue.  When layering camis under revealing tops one does want to be careful not to disrupt or distract from the top or dress, you want to go for subtle coverage.  The scarf was a gift from my Grammy.  The colors in the scarf lead me to the shoe and purse choice in this outfit.  I added this long cardigan to give it some casual ease instead of going full out "Ladies Who Lunch."

  1. How funny, I did all gray today but did not do the contrast as well as you did. A black 3/4 sleeve sweater, a large black/red necklace or black scarf would have made blah into ah-ha. Live and learn.
