OOTD: Red and purple floral

I love the outfit serendipity that happens when I see two items hanging near each other in my closet and realize they’d be perfect together.

Steve gets the credit for this fun, dance-like picture. I was trying to figure out a way to show off the flow-y sleeves, and he suggested that I raise my arms as he took a picture.

I’m not normally into tomato red, but every once in a while I enjoy wearing a color combination that’s completely different from my usual.

I originally tried the shirt as part of a free month-long Gwynnie Bee trial. I really liked it and wanted to buy it, but the 18/20 was a bit too small, and I couldn’t get a 22/24 before the month ended. So I scoured eBay, and eventually found it. (For what it’s worth, I also tried another Igigi item–a white dress with purple floral print–in an 18/20, and it fit perfectly…so, who knows what size I usually wear in their clothes?)
