The Traveling Black Dress: Watercolor Edition

Add some painterly watercolors to your LBD for summer

By Beth Muecke July 20, 2015

Typically when you hear the term watercolors, you think of the medium used to create colorful masterpieces of art.

Today, my little black dress is the canvas for a summer watercolor-themed outfit. There are 19 museums in the Houston Museum District alone. What a wonderful way to spend a summer day (in the air-conditioning) looking at some of the best art in the world.

This blouse, by Kay Celine, features a rich, sheer fabric with playful kimonos sleeves. Yellow hose and pink socks continue the artful brightness throughout the outfit. These shoes are a mix of the caged-heel look and gladiators.

 Tunic blouses are so easy to throw over a swimsuit, skirt, dress or shorts for summer parties. Kay Celine is known for her brightly patterned tops.
