Pinspiration Day 14 - Christina

Sunday I needed an outfit for a nice brunch with my in-laws.  I loved the maxi looks that Rebecca and Stephanie wore last week and thought this would be a good occasion to try it.  I have an awesome infinity dress from Rebecca's wedding 2 years ago so I pulled it out.

The dress looked gorgeous but was waaaaaay to formal looking, even with the denim jacket.  I think the deep purple, the slight sheen to the fabric, and floor length were just too much for a casual look.  On the other hand, this has great potential to wear to a wedding next month!

With 5 minutes until we had to leave, I went to my backup pinspiration (I had picked one just in case the maxi didn't work).

I love how this turned out and am excited because it is a combo I would not normally try.  I would have paired the teal dress with neutrals but the hot pink looks really cute.  Wouldn't do it for the office like this, but it was perfect for a brunch on the waterfront.
