Pattern Chic: Window Pane Dress

Patterns abound in springtime and are a stark contrast to drab winter blues.  While stripes are commonplace, and polka dots are fun, a plaid pattern, incorporating at least one of spring/summer 2013's hottest colors (lemon zest) is a bold way to usher in the warm weather.
1.  Kmart -Attention Window Pane Dress
2. GAP -Color-Blocked Clutch (similar)
3.  Naughty Monkey -Divine in Grey
A window pane dress in brightly accented colors (1) has a visually slimming effect.  Paired with an equally bright, over-sized, daytime clutch (2) and anchored in a soft neutral color sandal (3), gives you a chic look, even outdoors!
1, 2, 3 Chic!

1, 2, 3 Chic!
How I Styled It?
1, 2, 3 Styling is super easy when you go with what you have; the bright colors in the dress need no competition form bold jewelry, so I kept everything understated.  My color-blicked clutch, pulled from two colors in the dress: navy and bright blue, and I went back to the dress for the grey color inspiration for the shoes.  Some times simple is chic!  SN
