Going Green

I was able to wrangle Gary into taking a few photos for me because I'm slightly obsessed with this dress and heels! First let's talk about the dress. I bought this on a whim at Target and sadly it's not available online, but if you are near a Target, then they should still have them in stock. If online is what you what, I was able to find this Wrap Waist Shirt Dress from Target that is made of the same material and has the same fit. It's light enough that it can be worn in the summer heat, but it can easily transition into Fall, which despite the heatwave will be coming.
Let's pause for a moment and talk about the heels - the color I got them in is called Fawn, like a Brown/Gray, but they also come in Black and they are from Ann Taylor. They are currently an extra 50% off which makes them only $35 (might need to purchase them in black because hello that's a steal!! I can't even tell you how comfortable these shoes are! Don't believe me - just ask Kate as she witnessed me trekking from one side of Boston to the other without so much as a wince of pain! 
I also recently turned my Louis Vuitton Speedy into a cross body by adding a leather strap I had from another bag! I figured I'd use it more that way as I like to have my hands free and not carry purses in the crook of my elbow! I was totally right - I've used it so much more over the last two weeks than I have in the last two years! 
Happiness Boutique
Accessories! I decided to go a little heavy on the accessories for this dress! Happiness Boutique sent me two pairs of insanely gorgeous earrings and I couldn't wait to wear them. The Golden Jeweled statement earrings aren't as heavy as you would imagine and small enough that I can wear them to work, but make enough of a statement that they work for a night out! Before they reached out I hadn't heard of the company, but now that I know they exist I'm so happy they're around! With free shipping and a customer reward program - it's going to be hard to stop myself from shopping their site! They are a European company but the shipping was quick and easy and I love that they convert the prices for you into USD so you don't have to worry about doing math! 
Happiness Boutique
They also sent me a pair of these gorgeous colored statement earrings that I hope to break out in Charleston! 

Happy Thursday friends! We're almost to the weekend! 
Happiness Boutique sent me two pairs of earrings in exchange for a review - all opinions are 100% my own.

  2. I love that you changed your LV into a cross body bag!! So much easier to use and cart around with you that way--genius!
    I'm loving those heels! They are super cute. Dang you for making me want to buy something else after I just swore off the Nordie sale!! :)

  10. I can’t get enough army green for fall! This dress looks so pretty on you!

  11. Army green is such a pretty color on you. That dress is so great. You could even wear it in the fall with leggings and booties. What a great idea to make your speedy bag crossbody, that was genius.

  12. That dress was just as stunning on you in person as it is in the photos, and I still can't believe you were able to trot around downtown Boston in those heels! Definitely scoop them up in black at that price, and knowing they're super comfy too :)

  13. That olive color looks fantastic on you - gotta love Target! Those statement earrings are so pretty - I'm loving the bright colors of that second pair!

  14. YAY, I was waiting for this post. I loved that green dress on you the moment you posted a picture. How did you add the leather strap? I've thought about doing that for trips and stuff because the arm carry isn't the best on vacay.

  15. ahhh it's almost time for your trip with the girls! loving those earrings and look forward to seeing some charleston pics with them :) love this whole post really haha. those heels are the perfect color that would go with everything! xo

  18. I was so excited when I saw this look in my feed! You wore it in a post a few weeks ago and I thought it was such a perfect wardrobe staple. Like you said, works for Summer and Fall. Honestly, I'd wear this in Spring too. (; I really hope they have these in my Target!

  29. Super cute!!!
    I don't get Target! I found a sweater there I loved & wanted it in another color & the store didn't have my size so went online - its not on there. How do they have things online that aren't available in the store but things in the store NOT online??? Get with it Target - you're drunk.

  44. That dress looks fabulous on you!! I saw them at Target awhile back but figured it wouldn't fit me right because of the cut but maybe I need to give it another try. I could use some fall dresses. I am still in love with those shoes!!! I might be placing an order for them. Are they true to size?
