Floral striped dress


Normally I'm not a fan of polyester (although if something cute is made of polyester, I'll wear it anyway), but this dress is made of polyester and it feels fabulous. It's lightweight, and the best part is that even though it looks like a dry-clean-only dress, I can wash it by hand.

I think this was one of my favorite outfits ever - and I do mean ever, not just in blog history. It was weather-appropriate, pretty, comfortable, and coordinated without being too matchy-matchy. Plus, a girl at church yesterday came up to me and introduced herself because she loved these shoes. Fact: you will instantly become my friend if you compliment my shoes.




Dress: Anthropologie
Mint green cardigan: Old Navy
Blue and green wedges: Nine West from Nordstrom Rack
Green hat: free from my aunt
Pink necklace: gift from my grandma
Green bracelet: thrifted from Village Merchants

Today I'm linking up this post at Monday Mingle and Visible Monday.

  3. Agreed on a couple of fronts--one, yes, best outfit ever. I love the colors and pattern. They do go perfectly with your shoes. And two--anyone who compliments my shoes instantly becomes my friend too.
