    Ususally, I’m not a fan of the all-over-floral-print dress. But, it’s sooo granny chic with the extra long cardigan. I *love* the color of the cardigan, and I really appreciate the subtle coloring that is on it. Well played, I say.

    Also, I love her stance. Toes together, ankles slightly apart. Cute without being pigeon.

    Relaxed shapes with harmonious palette (amazing dress fabric; perfect sweater), but the bag overwhelms.

    I’m just not feeling the whole cardigan thing…her shoes are fabulous, tights and dress awesome even the oversized tote and glasses…)all are a bit overseen on this blog) the cardigan just gives it a heavy matronly look when it could have been so smart with the same colored wrap.

    Where is this beautiful dress from? It is amazing, and she looks so elegant! That being said, I would go for darker shoes.

    Normally I’m not a floral print fan but this one is different. I definitely like it with the sweater and shoes.

    cute dress and shoe/tight combo, but the sweater and bag are overwhelming the look. i would wear this with a black blazer and mustard/green clutch (assuming i had one). ha!

    The dress and the green cardigan are from THAKOON! That is used with the gray tight…

    Hmmm. All of these pieces are nice but as an ensemble? I can’t say I’m digging it. It looks too haphazard to me. Like thriftshop chic without the chic.

    First of all I think the dress would be better at knee length.

    The sweater is unflattering, it needs shape IMO (look a the shoulder seems – is this her dad’s sweater?). It makes this already grannyesque dress look more matronly. Perhaps it would work with skinny jeans or leggings.

    The bag is too big and modern for the outfit and IMO black is not a good choice.

    I don’t think the shoes work with the sweater and purse but I do like them with the tights.

    Wow…. being this critical is exhausting…. must take nap now.

    I don’t get it. Maybe it’s because I’m a member of this generation, or possibly its because the oversized glasses, tote bag large enough to hide a body in, distracting print dress remind me of my college days.

    I love the cardigan! I am really looking for a great long cardigan to pair with a dress or jeans and a tee.

    i think the women at the marni shows are my favourite. madcap and fancy-free, they spark my imagination the most.

    No. No fit, no style, and please, no white shoes with black hose! Ick, ick, ick!

    This outfit looks great – I especially love the color combination of the floral pattern and the pea green.

    I’m not so sure about the shape and texture of the slouchy bag but its interesting how it almost fades into the background, bringing out the vivid colors of the dress and sweater.

    She’s young enough to look like there’s a little irony here, but even if she doesn’t look like a granny, she could still change her hair and help things a lot.

    the lady with the spotted bag a distance behind looks interesting. the navy on her is eye-catching. the pink on the photographer too.
    the subject of the photo: looks heavy, clothes weighing her down. dont like the shoes too much.
    jaime’s (above) suggestion sounds good

    I hate to be the anonymous-blog-commenting-type, but I am not feeling this outfit and am surprised that so many responders (mostly women?) are supporting this look.

    What am I missing here?

    What a charming outfit. It strikes me as whimsical and individualistic. She doesn’t look like she is trying too hard, to me she just seems to be wearing something that struck her as interesting and pretty. I hope that is what she did- that’s why I like it.

    Granny-chic at its best. I find the dress pattern with the cardigan to be exquisite, bu the bag is overwhelming and a bit distracting.

    I like the dress. I have a feeling the sweater does something unattractive in the back…Not crazy about the accessory choices. I’m trying to avoid looking like a wizard in the muggle world and it’s something we all struggle from time to time. So many fabulous things to wear, but edit, edit, edit.

    Other than the bag, which I agree is too heavy, I want this outfit! I love the length of the cardy with the dress, and the peep-toes with the dark tights are too cute!

    The color of her cardigan is the best green I've ever seen.
