Would You Wear It- Daisies or Lemons

Would You Wear It- Daisies or Lemons

Happy Saturday ladies. I hope you’re all well and staying calm. Let’s distract ourselves today with a fun conversation about fashion. It’s time for would you wear it. Each week my friend Pam and I share a mannequin we’ve found and ask if you would wear what it’s wearing.

I love to have you share your styling ideas in the comments so we can all learn from each other. Please keep your comments personal to you, so you don’t insult others. The goal is a constructive conversation and exchange of ideas.

So tell me, would you wear these looks and why or why not.

How could you style it to work for your lifestyle and body shape?

I tried to find the link for the above daisy skirt but struck out. Daisy is such a happy flower and they are showing up on everything this spring. I don’t wear pattern (yet) and I’m not the sweet type, but I just ordered these earrings and can’t wait until they get here.silk daisy earrings on A Well Styled Life

    Definite yes to the lemon dress. Why? I love lemons and it has a fun old fashioned vibe to it. I think I’d pair it with white sneaks to go out or sandals to entertain at home. xo

    Love the 40s-style dress so much would even ignore the lemon print. Longish sleeves cover my over-70 arms and the lack of a waistband is perfect for 5’4″ me. Can’t tell about the length but want to believe it’s longish, again perfect for my aging legs. Can’t tell if the same colours are in the tee and the skirt as I understand mixing patterns is fine as long as the colours repeat themselves. Good selection of mannequins this week!

    I would never wear a ‘fruit’ print – small or large. I think lemons have outlived its potential. Saw lemons on sale at TJ Maxx. The daisies are sweet – I agree w/most – this needs a smarter top and jacket. I also belong to a group where the daisy is our flower. Daises are always fresh.

    Like the lemon dress and the daisy skirt but with a white tee and not the shirt & jacket is too big.

    Since I don’t wear dresses or skirts anymore I’m not crazy about either ensemble. I do like and wear prints but not lemons and certainly not yellow (not my color). These colors are just too bla for my taste; I want and need some bright, vivid hues in my world. WOW, I can really relate to what Janet D said about sewers (or used to in my case also). Very frustrating to see stripes and obvious horizontal patterns/plaids not matched, etc. in higher price point clothing!!

    I love both of these looks. Both are perfect for my pear shape.

    The one on the right is very similar to how I dress. It’s a bit sporty. I have a black and white skirt like the one in the image.

    The dress is a 1940s style that seems just right for present circumstances. It’s flowy, made for curves and not restricting. Yes to making lemonade out of lemons!

    The dress is cute but not for me. I could see my tall slender niece in it. She does the 40’s vibe very well. The skirt is too long & high waisted for me, & I still can’t get on board with the print mixing. I like the jacket but would wear it with a very casual look.

  9. Kay
    March 14, 2020 / 11:13 am

    Both styles are good. I like the jacket over the skirt, very sporty. I don’t think I’m up for either print. I like prints, but neither of these appeal to me.

    Oh, & the Daisy dress: a “no” for me. I love daisies in my garden (such a happy flower!) but dislike them on adult clothing. I’m not a fan of fussy little prints — if I’m going to wear a print it needs to be big & bold — nor do I care for mixed prints or prints with stripes. At first glance I thought the jacket might go with jeans & a striped tee but then realized I’ve seen a hundred others I like better. Those big sloppy pockets do nothing for me. Both these outfits really put me in a spring mood, though 🙂

    Absolutely love that lemon dress & would have worn it in a Montreal minute 20 years ago. Now: not without hose & I don’t like wearing hose. But, alas, my thighs at 61 are not the firm, sleek thighs I had even at 40, so flashing them with those slits — which I love — isn’t an option I’d chose. It’s got a beautiful neckline & I like the pockets & over-all long lines which I think would make me look taller (always good). It almost makes me think I should wear a dress more often (which I rarely do; maybe it’s time to rethink that?). I’d wear it with heeled sandals & plenty of jewelry. The only thing that bothers me is the unmatched lemon pattern across the front which would drive me crazy. I sew (or used to) & while it would be difficult to match the pattern because of all the vertical seams, if I were making it myself I’d go to that trouble. Sewers often have difficulty buying ready-made for this lack of attention to workmanship (which must be compromised for cost considerations, obviously). All in all, though, it’s a clear win!

      Mismatched patterns bug me too. 🙋🏼‍♀️ I sewed many of my clothes for years.

    Oh we really needed a cheery post today!

    The lemon dress is just lovely! The print is pretty and the shape is flattering. I’d definitely go for this dress.

    I wish the dress also came in the daisy print!

    I like the white jacket, but I wouldn’t wear it with a skirt. I can picture it layered over a long tee shirt with capris or skinny jeans.

    I would try on the lemon dress to see what it looks like…it has potential. The other three pieces I would not wear…just not my style messages. I could even see the dress with white sneakers!

    • Jennifer
      March 14, 2020 / 2:40 pm

      It would be cute with sneakers

    Thanks for the cheerful daisies and yellow color, well needed in these trying times. I have tried on that dress in other color ways, and with a longer sleeve. I didn’t get it because of the two thigh high slits, but I guess you could sew them up. The fabric quality isn’t the best, sorry to say, and the print is too large for my taste. The daisies are scaled better. Too bad the choices aren’t of better quality. Stay safe everyone.

    Cheery looks today, Jennifer! I love the dress, but the colors wouldn’t work for me. I might wear the daisy skirt with a white jean jacket. The jacket shown has too much volume. White slip on sneakers and a straw bag would be fun! Enjoy your weekend and stay healthy! 😎

    I like the dress. If I had a waist I’d wear it. I like the skirt but not the baggy jacket. The pattern mix is interesting. I’d do a solid tank and Jean jacket.

    I really like the lemon dress, but I think I’m too short to wear it. I also like the daisy skirt and top minus the jacket. I still have an issue with wearing stripes and patterns. Old habits die hard!

  18. Jan
    March 14, 2020 / 9:01 am

    I do like the pattern mix with the skirt and top. It might work for me if I topped it with a jean jacket. But I do have to pass on the yellow dress. I wouldn’t invest in it and try to make it work for me.
    Kindness is always in style and I’m seeing so much of it lately!! Thankyou and good health to all!

    The outfits are pretty, but not necessarily together. The dress has a 40’s vibe and retro is in now. My waist is the largest part of me so would not be attractive on me. I like the skirt but with a structured white jacket and another blouse. The jacket and striped tee would be good with blue jeans or something else on the bottom.

    I would stop and look at this display. I’m drawn to yellow lately. I recently bought a yellow daisy print blouse at Goodwill. It’s too cold to wear it but it makes me smile just looking at it. I wouldn’t try or buy either outfit though. I don’t wear dresses or skirts.

      I agree! I would stop and smile as I looked at it.

    The dress has a very attractive shape and would be flattering on most. But I don’t care for the lemon print. Too large and cutesy for me. The jacket is too overwhelming for me. I actually like the striped tee and the daisy skirt, but seldom wear skirts/dresses. Pants are just so much more practical and comfortable.

  23. Bonita
    March 14, 2020 / 7:40 am

    Not the right look for me. I can’t wear midi length. It makes me feel short and dumpy. Not crazy about the prints either. Someone younger would look cute in the lemon print.

  24. Karen
    March 14, 2020 / 7:37 am

    I would wear the dress—it has a ‘40’s vibe and I love dresses from that era. The skirt is really cute, but I would pair it with a crisp, white, blouse tied at the waist and rolled up sleeves and black heeled sandals or pumps. The jacket and shirt I would pair with jeans or leggings and sneakers. All items are really cute and happy- I love wearing cute and happy!

    Years ago I might have worn the skirt – the fabric seems to young for me now. The dress fabric is too loud but the design can be very complementary. Kind of goes back to 40 or 50’s lines that were so simple but stylish……I will take those simple times about now.
    Hope you all and your families stay well.

    • Jennifer
      March 14, 2020 / 9:40 am

      Those simple times do have much more appeal to me too. The stress of life can wear us down if we let it. Be safe, Bab.

  26. Sandy
    March 14, 2020 / 7:11 am

    I like the jacket, but not with the skirt. Maybe jeans, or for going to the gym.
    I like the skirt but I have an apple shape and horrible looking legs, so unfortunately for me, I don’t wear skirts or dresses. The print on the dress is to large.

  27. MRSBEN2
    March 14, 2020 / 6:58 am

    Such ‘happy’ prints indeed however with the exception of actually the jacket (if it were hooded and I had a yacht … which I don’t … ☺) I’m afraid a no to each namely because of their style but feel they would look great on someone else, paired with bright yellow sandals or even sneakers. (I have similar striped T’s already.)
    P.S.: Do love the earrings though as somewhat unique being silk and fun in design.

  28. Diane B
    March 14, 2020 / 6:57 am

    I love the dress. The sleeves, the length, the slim waist and the neckline all are a yes for me. I had a dress of my grandmother that was shaped almost the same, and I wore that quite a bit in my 20’s and now that I am in my 60’s why not. The white top is not my style, too loose and the pockets are just too much. The daisies are not so much for me, maybe in a shoe or bag.

    • Jennifer

    They are both cheerful outfits. I wouldn’t wear the yellow one, too much for me but I like the Daisy skirt. I would wear a more fitted jacket and probably a plain colored shirt with it. I love the Keds!

    Both are great looks to lift the spirits. I like the skirt especially.

  31. Elaine @ Following Augustine

    I wouldn’t choose either of these looks. The patterns are too “sweet” for me too.

  32. Linda GR
    March 14, 2020 / 6:22 am

    I like the outfits, they are so cheerful. I doubt that I would purchase them as I think they would trend out to soon. I do like the style of the dress and skirt, but I don’t do stripes with prints and the jacket is to sloppy.

  33. Leslie
    March 14, 2020 / 5:58 am

    I actually love everything today. I don’t know what the yellow and white dress would look like on me but I would definitely try it on because I love yellow and it’s so cheery and the print just makes me smile. I love the white jacket. I am a fan of slouchy jackets like this. They look so relaxed and comfortable.

    The dress is cute but yellow and white is not a great colour combination on me – I’m not a big fan of the two slits in the front. I would wear the skirt with a white denim jacket and Keds (my favourite) or sandals. Thanks for the cheerful manniquins outfits today.

    • Jennifer
      March 14, 2020 / 9:00 am

      The white denim jacket and keds sound fun with the skirt for spring.

  36. Kerry
    March 14, 2020 / 5:35 am

    Yes, to the dress. The skirt and top are nice and spring looking, but that white jacket is sloppy and those pockets are too weird. It’s why I sew! I can make any or all of these exactly suited to me.

  37. Lea
    March 14, 2020 / 5:28 am

    I’d try the dress, cute print and colour. I like the skirt and top but that jacket is too sloppy, it kills the outfit. A shorter, more structured, jacket would work better for me. Could be many colours. Ooh, I do love happy prints! So easy to accessorize. Take care and stay healthy.

  38. Paulette Levy
    March 14, 2020 / 5:09 am

    Neither look grabs me. The dress is pretty, but the top would only enhance my bustline, not needed.
    The second look, longish skirt, large pockets on jacket just doesn’t appeal to me. I would need a much shorter skirt just at knee, maybe replace the long jacket with a shorter white jean jacket. (Or in pink or pale blue?)
    Thanks for this wonderful diversion to our worries about coronavirus.

  39. Michele
    March 14, 2020 / 4:55 am

    I love receiving daisies, but I’m not being drawn to the skirt. The jacket shown with the skirt looks strange with those weirdly large pockets. I would not purchase these items. The style of the dress is very flattering as shown on the mannequin (probably pinned to perfection from behind). I especially love the sleeve length (I don’t like showing my upper arms). The lemon pattern is a no for me…too cutesy.

  40. Martha
    March 14, 2020 / 4:54 am

    I think I’d wear the daisy skirt and white jacket with a different top. Somehow the stripes with the daisy print don’t thrill me. The lemon dress is a no go. The print is too big and a little too juvenile for me. I think I’d feel silly in it.

    • Jennifer

    Cute outfits but…The lemon print is too big for me. I would prefer tiny lemons on a navy background. The same goes for the daisy skirt. Remember the sunflowers a few years back? They were everywhere!

  42. LINDA J
    March 14, 2020 / 3:57 am

    I love the style of that dress. I usually don’t wear prints, but I think I could wear that, I love yellow. It depends on the length, I would have to try it with my nude wedge sandals. Add gold earrings and a neutral summer handbag and I could definitely picture myself wearing this dress.
