WIW 10/21: Bubble water with lime

An outfit inspired by my favorite drink: sparkling water with lime. The kids like to drink sparkling water too, and they call it bubble water. I never drank carbonated water until I was an adult, and the first time I tasted it I didn't like it--thought it tasted bitter. But then I started drinking it as an alternative to soda, and now I drink it all the time--I even prefer it to still water. And of course nowadays kids aren't supposed to drink soda, which is why my kids like to drink bubble water instead. Hopefully they will grow up more healthy than we did! DD matched me today with her blue and green striped shirt.

I decided to keep the Kate Spade purse to match my blue and green outfits. Even though the green is a little too bright, it's a more useful size than the Banana Republic clutch. So that's the "lime" to match my fizzy dress. The Chie Mihara shoes are still killing me at the end of the day. They start out fine, but I ended up having to take the kids to the library after work and walking a couple blocks in these heels to the car and back was painful! I think I'm going to have to keep some flats in the car, or keep looking for some blue snake flats (the Rachel Zoe ones are going back because of the wrinkled instep).

I always get lots of compliments on this dress. I love telling people I bought it at TJ Maxx! I feel very '60's in this outfit...mod and matchy matchy.
Thanks for commenting!

    I love this!  The purse is especially TDF.  I find myself yearning for Kate Spade things lately.  Wonder where that is coming from.

    Such a lovely print in your dress! I'm a big fan of dotty patterns and minty tones. I think the bag works well with it too. You look lovely Natalie.
