To celebrate my newly pink hair, I decided I needed an appropriately girly new outfit. After trying on a pile of pale, pastel, lacy numbers at American Apparel, I decided on this delicate dress with a minty bodysuit underneath.

I posed the question to Instagram, but I’ll ask here as well: Is it appropriate to wear just a bodysuit under such a sheer dress? The cut was full and conservative, and the Instagram consensus was yes, but I still decided to add a slip before wearing this out the next day.

Speaking of lace, these socks have been my saving grace. I’m in desperate need of a proper pedicure, but in the meantime I’ve been pairing my open-toe shoes with various frilled footies. Faster and easier than painting my toenails, and much nicer to look at anyway.

Oh, and the bubbles? I seem to collect them from every wedding I’ve ever attended. Little known fact, I carry a small vial on me at all times, just in case the occasion calls for it. I always consider doing a “What’s In My Bag” post for this very reason, but aside from the bubbles it would be rather unimpressive (a wad of receipts, a Sephora mailer from two months ago, a stack of gift cards in a rubber band). My organization methods are … unique.

At least my summer wardrobe is taking shape.

    I agree with Instagram voters, definitely down with the bodysuit (an often overlooked piece of the wardrobe). Love the pink hair, lace, utterly chic.

  5. I love the gif you made. The pink hair is perfect! Hmm, I’d love to just say YES wear the bodysuit out, but I get where you’re coming from, I’d be nervous to do it – but it looks awesome so I want you to…haha. I’d wear it out clubbing / to a party!

  6. This post just brightened my mood – the pink hair, the lace, the frilly socks and the BUBBLES!! I love that you carry them all the time. I’d agree with putting a slip on under a sheer dress, but that’s just ’cause I wouldn’t look as good with just a bodysuit underneath.

    Totally appropriate! You look gorgeous :)

  8. Next time we get together I demand a shower of bubbles! I think the dress looks amazing with the bodysuit, but unless you’re hanging out with the right crowd, Bostonians will just look at you like you’re crazy. Le sigh.

  9. ha, i can relate to interesting organization skills. i don’t the bodysuit looks perfect, but it’s more about your comfort level than what anyone else thinks.
