Striped to the maxi

It finally felt like it was time to take the striped maxi out of hibernation, on a slightly windy, slightly cool, but still very spring feeling day. Despite the bumble bee accusations, I stand by my choice of bold yellow knotted button down.

I even decided to go for the matching gold cuffs... which makes me a Wonder Woman bumble bee.

You look stunning! I've always been obsessed with this striped maxi dress of yours. I love how it looks with the yellow, if you look like a bee you look like the Queen bee! Lol, so cute!

I don't think you look like a bumble bee at all! Love the knotted button down over a dress. It is one of my new favorite things to do.

I did not even think bumblebee until you said it! I love the combination of bright yellow with b/w stripes! :)

bzzzzz bzzzz...

That's my impression of a bumblebee (which you do not resemble at all)! I love this outfit, especially the cuffs!

Amber said...

bumble bees have never looked so good.

Loren said...

Love the dress. Yellow was a really great choice to pair it with!

Gray Skies said...

Loooove this! The word "bumblebee" didn't occur to me when I saw this - but I have to admit, "Wonder Woman" did when I saw the matching cuffs! Although I actually really like the look of matching cuffs, and have been wanting to do it for months.

Daniela said...

love that yellow on you and love those cuffs. It was really windy here too.. it's expected to snow, I hear..

Shen Dove said...

This is such a chic classic look! You really can't go wrong with a bright pop of yellow and a striped skirt.

Terri said...

the maxi has such a beautiful flow to it. I've been in search of a black & white patterned skirt to pair with a bright yellow blouse. No luck yet.

TaraMixandMatch said...

LOVE this...the stripes on this are so much fun!

Shey said...

Liddye you look gorgeous!

Ali said...

Holy shiitake mushrooms~ LYDDIIAAA! This outfit. Seriously this outfit? Like? I saw the shrunk down version of it on my dashboard and now it's bigger and even exploding with more awesomeness than I can handle. Seriously wat. I love this so hard you don't even know. No words can explain my love for this entire flawless ensemble.

Your gold Wonderwoman cuffs. I envy them. I've been looking for gold cuffs just like those, but alas, I have had no success in finding any.

And the way your sandals are striped kind of like your dress? Perf. I'm shortening words now to sound all cool and fashionable. Those sandals are so perf and amaze.

You are one cool bumblebee, lady.

Shea said...

Wonder woman bumble bee, I love it! I think the bold yellow looks great with the striped maxi dress!

Ugh, you look so beachy! Is this shirt new? Also, why do you look cool in the wind and I just look ridiculous? It was freezing today and beyond windy. I think I might not be able to use any photos.
