Brightly


Dress: c/o Gap / Shoes: Le Chateau / Bracelets: H&M + Urban Outfitters / Sunnies: reNeu Boutique / Blazer: Thrifted / Bag: Michael Kors Hamilton
 
I have to be honest... at first, I was convinced that this dress didn't work on me. I have a pretty short torso, and because of that, there seemed to be a little bit of extra material on the top half that puffed out a bit. But I loved it. I loved this dress. I loved the darling little collar, the double layered bottom, the bright color (it photographs sort of yellow but I can promise you it is n.e.o.n.), and most practically, the grab & go simplicity. After a little while, I found myself picking this dress out of my closet (or, a pile of clothes, if we are being honest) over & over, and started to feel like it did work after all. I always feel happy & comfortable when wearing it, but it's fun enough to not feel boring. A huge thank you to Gap who sent it along to me (with some other pieces I will be styling, too!) - a bright little piece such as this can cheer up many kinds of days.
 
Sidenote: I get more comments on this phone case than, really, anything else in the world. It's a conversation starter to say the least, a conversation that usually starts with, "Is that really your phone case?". Yes that is a bunny iPhone case. Yes I am in my very late twenties. Yes I have a grown up job to which I wear a blazer & things.
 
Have a great day.

Sometimes I seriously can't believe you're a "small town" girl Kristin... your style is too good! This dress does look tricky but you definitely pulled it off well and accessorized it beautifully with the black & gold touches!

Hope you're having a great week lovely!

I love this dress on you, and I think it can be styled quite a few different ways if you put your mind to it! Good find!

It totally does - work, that is. I love the colour! It's so intensely bright, I feel like it's a perfect summer dress.
