I think I’ve said this before (but I’m too lazy to go back and reference myself so I’ll just repeat it) but I go through phases with clothing. Some years I only like pants or I only like skirts. Other years I’m not interested in dresses at all and then the next I can’t get enough. I am indecisive at best, flaky at worst. But there has just been something about dresses for me this spring. I suppose I’ve been into feeling like a lady lately. Well as much as I can feel like a lady in a dress that’s short. Downside to being tall, everything is short. Upside: standing room concerts aren’t a problem and reaching things on high shelves is a plus.
Side note: it probably means I need a tan when my nude shoes are the exact same color as my skin, right? I mean sure they are supposed to be nude but flesh colored? That might be a little too close to my skin tone.

I love this! Such a great color scheme on you – reminds me of peaches n' cream! Summer, please hurry! 😉
love the color!
The color of this dress screams spring! I love it paired with that belt. I can't wait for warmer weather so I can stop wearing boots and coats with everything! This morning was 22 degrees when I left for work. 🙁
I love this dress. I think the only advantage to being 5'4 is that more of the shorter dresses are actually wearable. Great tip I read on Corporette – if you're not sure if something is appropriate or not, put a chair in front of your full-length mirror and have a seat. Sounded like a great litmus test to me!
I love how u paired the same color in two different shades.
Love this color! Such a fun and easy outfit. And those shoes are my personal favorite. I wear mine ALL the time.
Oh beautiful :). I'm so glad I started following your lovely blog :).
you look beautiful, love that dress.
Your cardigan is beautiful and has an element of carefree-ness to it!
The Occasional Indulgence
These colors are beautiful together. I've been into dresses lately too. That section of my closet is getting overstuffed! I'm pretty sure I'll walk in one morning and find all the dresses and skirts exploded all over the floor.

Love how feminine this outfit is! The colours are beautiful.
Hope you have a wonderful day!ShereeThe Hartungs Blog thehartungs.blogspot.ca
Don't feel bad. Nude is darker than my skin tone.
Love the coral/peach combi, great inspiration you are!
The colours! The shoes! <3
I am in a completely dress mode right now, I think it's part of my spring fever!
Love the colors and I love all the dresses you have been wearing this spring! So pretty.
You look adorable! And your legs look a bazillion miles long…embrace the skin tone matching the shoes!!
this is gorgeous and infinitely flattering on you. love coral and peachy pink!
I simply adore this dress on you! Love the tulip cut and the color is so pretty. Love it with the cardi, the two colors together are so springy and beautiful! And hey, we've all got pale legs right now… one of the downsides of winter, right!? 🙂
Love the color of your dress Kendi!
Great dress, rather than a tan you should give Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs a try, it works WONDERS in making legs look great. Go buy some and you will be a changed woman.
Love that dress, lady. That's a great color on you. I'm the same way, lately all I want to wear is pants. Fighting my instincts to ensure my massive skirt/dress collection gets some play.
Aw! So cute Miss Peachy Skeen 🙂 Love it!
I love this dress, it's gorgeous with the nude wedges. I know what you mean, I always go through clothing phases. I always love dresses though especially when the weather warms up. It's so easy to just throw one on and go. Plus they look cute and are comfortable and cool.
You look lovely, it looks so warm there! We had a rare day of sunshine today so I was able to choose flesh coloured tights and a floral dress rather than black tights and boots. We're all ladies together 🙂
Cute cute! I love dresses too— I make them at 50dresses.com! Let me know which you like- I'd love to send you something.
Love the color of the dress with the lighter cardigan! At least your skin matches the shoes! My skin is so pale I'm usually a couple shades lighter than my nude shoes!
You look so good in these summery springy colors!
I like the colors in this outfit!
I love the colors in this outfit, and those shoes are fabulous; exactly what I've been looking for.
Love this dress!!
Sincerely Miss Ash
cute cute…as always!
Love the peach! One of my fave spring colors. I just bought that same cardigan.
I'm loving corals and pinks this spring! Sunset colors just make me happy! You look adorable!

I will take being tall and having things be short over being short and having to get EVERYTHING altered any day! Gorgeous, peachy outfit. So spring, I love it!
I love this color combo on you! =)
Coral looks great on you Kendi! I love how you paired the pinks together and your photos are stunning, as always.

love the colors! spring is the best 🙂 X http://www.dippedinyellow.blogspot.com
This is such a beautiful outfit! The dress is absolutely stunning!
Have you ever ordered talls from Gap? Short becomes still short but not I'm-afraid-to-reach-the-top-shelf short… 🙂
i'm really disappointed that you didn't title this post – peachy skeen
Super cute! I think a lot of dresses are made on the too short side these days. I wonder why….nonetheless you look wonderful!
Love the dress! The color is gorgeous! Also love that the post is the name of my blog.
The color, design and the fact that it has pockets make this dress perfect.
You look so pretty on that beautiful Dress. Great combos..Love it//
Love this dress. The colour is amazing on you. I know how you feel about a tan. I can't wait for the sun to come out.
You look really pretty in that dress! Also, I like the leafy background. It's a nice change.
I'm all about the dresses this year, too. Love them.
You are adorable! I love your comments…and your outfits. BTW love the very Audrey-Hepburn-ish new photo on your homepage <3
Fabulous dress! I know what you mean about the nude shoe trend too, though. It can be a little disconcerting at times!
I'm the same way. Two years ago I was all about cardigans, now I'm all about pullovers.
My skin tone is perpetually the same color of all things nude.. so, anything in that tone is out… Love the coral color, simply fabulous!
LOVE this peach outfit, Kendi! You look fantastic. I went through a major dresses phase during my last spring in Texas – they are so perfect for the weather there and you look great in all of them, so I can't blame you!
Name's Not Ashley
Eek, try being Irish and having the palest skin ever..and having no sun ever!! Bonus though, nude shoes make your legs look longer, or so they say!
Love this peach colour! Stunning!
you don't need a tan! your pale skin is pretty. and will keep you looking young. note to self: need more dresses
Such a lovely dress! I really like it with the neutral accessories, makes it pop 🙂
Away From The Blue
These colors are as delicious as a refreshing sorbet… love it!

Well, the point is to elongate your legs and you definitely have that going on!
There is nothing wrong with your skin color or the shoes. I think you look chic. Darling outfit!
loving the nude wedges
Love the colors, very pretty dress 🙂
Beautifu colour on you!
Kendi, your outfits are awesome! Love them all.
I don't know if I love these colors on you but its pretty none-the-less
I know your frustration with dresses coming up short because you're tall. I hated the finger tip test in middle school because my arms are crazy long, and it required me to wear longer shorts and dresses compared to others. My husband is 7' tall, so we'll never be in a bad spot at concerts!
So perfect for spring!
Peachy Keen, or Peachy Skeen?! I know you're impressed. Also, I've had those exact thoughts about my legs and my nude heels many a times. Glad I'm not alone in paleness insecurities!
Love the two toned colors! Very summery outfit 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
Sunny with a side of…
Oh how I love peach and corals!
You crack me up. The perfect nude skin-matching pump was on my must have list for months! I finally found a pair, but they had to match my skin perfectly or they wouldn't work. Now I'm wondering how I'm supposed to,wear them once my legs do get tan!!??

Love the outfit! And I know what you mean, there are some times when I just want to wear pants and some times when I just want to wear skirts.
I really adore this color palette 🙂
beautiful combo, loving the hem of this dress (not to mention the color) and the slight pleated detail at the waist. the belt is perfect and so is the pastel pink cardi. p.s. totally feel ya on the tan, same here. plus side to being white, we wont be getting skin cancer,right? xo
You wont believe today m also wearing the same color
Gorgeous, love that color on you!
Keep calm and carry lipstick.
Keep up the peachy look Ms Kendi! The colour suits you so much xo
Love this look! The dress is stunning!
The Purse Snatcher
Such a dainty outfit, love the colors x
You're ever so slightly taller than average, not a giant, for goodness sake.
I love the light/bright combination going on here – that dress looks gorgeous on you!
These pictures are great, especially the first one in which your attitude is like a super model, and you're looking fabulous with beautiful natural background.
if we're going to go there, i'd actually say your shoes MAY be a little bit tanner than your legs. i can say this without offending you because if i DIDN'T have tights on right now i'd be blinding you with my sheer ghostness. .. from New Hampshire. and no bare legs in sight for months. SO JEALOUS.
This is such a cute dress…so versatile!
Cathy, your Poor Little It Girl
I love this combination! It's perfect for spring, elegant, and casual all in one.
Love the colors!! so great with the gold belt too. saw that dress on the Bloom website and loved it. 🙂 ps- also SUPER pale right now.. it happens. 😉
LOVE this color on you. You look amazing in this color and dress.
If you get a sec, check out my latest post 'One Shoulder Wonder'. A very pretty LBD dress that I found last weekend. I would love to hear what you think about it.
Have a great weekend!
These colors are so perfect for spring.
sartorial whimsies, like many things, move in spirals.
Madewell and Sole Society, two of my absolute faves! Don't you just love them? And my legs totally blend with my nude shoes too.. haha! Ready for a little sun-kissed tan! : )
Such perfection! 🙂 Love this.
I love this color combination! So cute.
Great look, that colour is absolutely gorgeous!
You look stunning and I love, love your dress! 🙂
I love how you paired the peaches together. Great idea!
Lovely dress! Love that bright color.
🙂 Liz @ rusticpeach.com
lovely & bright post!!
Ah this makes me want to move to Texas and wear bright dresses! I'm so envious you can wear these types of outfits already, up here in Seattle we have to wait until about the end of June!
you look great! i love the colors of your outfit 🙂
don't worry about the nude shoes — i thought they should look relatively close to your skin tone so that they give the appearance of elongating your legs even more?
oh no, unless i had it wrong all this years and people think i was walking barefoot with a weird growth sticking out of the heel of my foot. yikes.
I love this color combo!
Nice dress, I like this color and beautifull with the cardigan!
I have a dress in the same colour and love your styling with nude tones.
Lady of Style
But it gives the illusion of longer legs…oh wait, you don't have that problem! I love the lady like looks. Keep 'em coming!http://akstylemyway.blogspot.com/
OMG! I love this beautiful dress. I have to have one <3
The nude shoes are beautiful. The wedges make it comfortable and it gives this illusion of really long legs.
