First of all, I’d like to say I was quite proud of myself for coming up with such a witty title. Secondly, I am still beyond shocked that I actually styled this look AND liked it enough to make a blog post about it. Up until the moment I saw this piece, I really had no interest in the color green. Apart from the occasional olive garment you could catch me rocking during the Fall, all other “green-ish” shades I tend to stay away from. That said, this kelly green dress managed to completely change my opinion in just a few hours. During this particular shopping trip, I managed to walk past this floral tee about three times before I finally gave in and tried it on and to be honest, there wasn’t much to it. I wish I could say that I was completely blown away by this piece but I just saw it as one of those easy, “I have nothing to wear” items. After a bit more browsing, I decided to just get it in hopes that I’d be able to work it into my wardrobe at some point. By the time I got home and began laying out my outfits for this shoot, a light bulb went off in my mind and the look instantly came together. For casual shapeless garments like this, it can be easy to dress them down and let them swallow your frame. However, being the lover of contrast that I am, I chose to elevate this look with a pair of metallic, rose gold heeled sandals. These shoes were absolutely perfect for this outfit and really made the pink and yellow details in the flowers pop. Because I was rocking such a bold print, I didn’t really accessorize much outside of my everyday studs and go-to fringe backpack. Though quite simple, I still feel like this look makes a major statement and I’m definitely happy I decided to purchase this dress. I guess green isn’t so bad after all– until next time!
