i’m wearing: h&m pleated dress (check your local store or similar available here), jessica simpson wedges, asos belt (now only $8.29), mar y sol clutch (available here (on sale) in coral although i LOVE this one even more) and my michael kors watch.

the last time i wore this dress, one person mentioned that it needed a belt and another wasn’t in love with the chunky green wedges i paired it with. to be honest, something looked a little off to me too. so i went back to one of my favorite colorblock combos…cobalt & orange. i wore this for girls night out to celebrate another one of my bff’s bdays. i’m kinda wishing i hadn’t worn this dress so i could wear it for the 4th of july party we are going to today. so now i have no idea what i’m wearing or if i will be sporting a festive manicure! oh well…happy 4th friends!

    The belt definitely “makes” the dress….do like it better than unbelted. Was looking for the mani but I guess you can only do so much! lol Have a fun day. We are off to a parade!

    I love that you picked only one of the traditional colors and it translates so well with the brown accessories!

    I have the same dress! It looks fabulous on you, and I love the way you styled it. I’ll just say that I liked it with the green wedges too. That color looks great with your skin tone and hair color.

    I definitely love this style better-there’s something about cinching a belt at the waist that gives the look a different feel!
