merona dress  & cardigan and
mossimo virginia pumps {all thrifted target stock}

​oct 22nd / the color marissa & i are featuring today for our pantone-inspired fall color challenge is turbulence, a smoky blue-gray.  this color gave me the most difficulty; i have a scarf that matches the color perfectly but i just couldn't build an outfit around it!  finally, i settled on this faux-wrap dress from target.  i thought the combination of blues in the swirly vertical pattern definitely gave an effect of turbulent ocean waters in the above hue.  plus, it's a dress that i don't seem to offer much wear, so it felt good to have a purpose to build an outfit with it.  i think the blue looks great with the maroon/burgundy necklace & heels.

how do you think i did?  did you, too, have to stretch a bit to find an article of clothing that resembles the color of turbulence above?  we're linking up at marissa's blog the modern austen today so head on over to add your link.  i look forward to seeing your looks!

be sure to come back to my blog tomorrow to link up with your koi orange looks!

get the look:  similar dress / this season's cardigan / similar belt / similar heels
