2017-06-16 12.51.49 1

I’m so excited to share this look with you all today! In particular, I’m excited to share the star of the OOTD this embroidered midi-dress, it’s one of my absolute favorite go-to dresses. I can seriously live in it, as it works for so many occasions; I can pair it with strappy heels for a dressier event, or throw on some gladiator sandals for the perfect causal brunch look. Not to mention it’s an exact dupe for one of my favorite, Free people dresses (I might even like the quality of this one a little more) and at only $36.99 vs $168.00 I really couldn’t say no.

One of my my favorite colors to pair with black during the summer is camel. I love the contrast and warmth it brings to a black outfit, and the warm tone makes black summer appropriate. So I knew that my Steve Madden espadrilles, would be the perfect shoe for this look. Not only did they match perfectly with my, Jessica Simpson purse, but the wedge gave me some much needed height, to successfully pull off a midi dress. The finishing touch was to throw on my new hat obsession, this straw hat I indefinitely borrowed from my mom ( I mean does anything say summer like a straw hat)?

For earrings I kept with the dangle theme, throwing on these disc style gold earrings, that catch the light perfectly. On my hands, I went with my two favorite Madewell bracelets, my engagement ring (of course) and a bar Madewell ring as well. I wanted to keep everything simple, to not take away from the beautiful white embroidered flowers.

Kona Loafer Slide from Merona for Target $22.99

I LOVE these shoes, oh so much! Just like every other girl I’ve lusting over the Gucci Loafer for months and was on the hunt for a good dupe. I came across these from Target and I have to say, they have become my most worn shoe. First off the quality is amazing the faux leather feels and looks rich, the hardware is the perfect shade of gold,and well they just look soo chic! I love to play with juxtaposition by wearing a menswear inspired look, these are perfect with straight legged jeans and a crisp button-up.

*I recommend sizing up a full size
