Floral Midi Dress.

How was your weekend? Today is our last full day on Cape Cod and I am crossing my fingers for beach weather. It was pretty cloudy/foggy/rainy most of the week with the exception of yesterday, which was great for family time but not so much for the beach. Soooo, one more day of sunshine would be such a treat! Yesterday we went to the beach all day and then came home and made steaks on the grill before watching the Game of Thrones premiere. Pretty perfect!

This dress is my favorite but it keeps selling out so I listed everywhere to buy it below and in the widget at the bottom of the post. You probably need it. It’s from Alice & Olivia’s pre-Fall collection (the new dresses are SO good) and is equally perfect now or later with tights and boots. I love it. What makes it so special (besides the emerald green color – the best!) is the dramatic slit up the front. It looks all conservative and then boom… just a little bit of sass! I went out with color, pairing it with my favorite hot pink heels and my bright pink/purple Gucci bag. Sometimes you just have to have a little fun with color and that’s exactly what I did here!

Annnnyway… boo for Monday, but hooray for a brand new week! I’m soaking up my last bits of vacation but excited to get back to the city (and “real life”) tomorrow!

Hot Pink Shoes!

I am convinced that a great pair of (hot!) pink shoes will brighten up even the worst day. They’ll instantly lift your mood and put a little pep in your step. Here are an assortment of my favorites… at every price.

    Your hair looks INCREDIBLE in these photos, and green looks great on you! I spent the weekend packing since I move this week, but definitely fit in lots of fun in between. So looking forward to a new week 🙂

      Thanks so much Kristie! I totally agree with you!! Wrap dresses are so flattering. xx

  11. I absolutely love the floral pattern – and that shade of green is gorgeous, too! Such a great midi!

    Obsessed with this look on you! SO good!

  13. Cy says 7.18.17

    Such a classic 70’s silhouette with a twist. And it always works. This dress is gorgeous on you. My favorite color, not enough green out there! I notice when I wear a flattering color I don’t need much makeup ( I don’t wear much anyway these days, too aging)

    That Alice & Olivia dress is so, so cute! The color is gorgeous and I love the floral pattern. No wonder it keeps selling out! I hope your got some sun and enjoyed your last day of vacation!
