Maxi Dress: Forever 21
Body suit: H&M
Ring: Pree Brulee
Necklace: Discovery
Earrings: Whimsy Lane
Wedges: Forever 21

This dress comes with a story. My sister-in-law bought it for herself and then decided she didn't want it. I (being the helpful person that I am) took it off her hands. ;)
I wanted to belt it, but the hubby said it didn't look right belted. That's the last time I listen to him because now all I see when I look at these pics is the lack of belting!! lol
I guess this just means you'll be seeing it again and next time I will style it how I want. I also can't wait to wear it with a knit over it in the fall. Lots of outfit opportunities!

Now about the jewelry. All 3 items I am wearing are priced under $7!! LOVE affordable pieces that look great!

Love this dress! Ok and on the white topic, I agree there is an appropriate WINTER white like a white wool mini skirt or silk pants. Maybe I'm just stuck in the past with my rules!

I am addicted to reds/pinks with turqoise. This look is awesome and will totally translate to fall! Slap a cute cardigan over that thing! I think it looks cute sans belt...but I didn't see it WITH one..

I love that dress, if Forever 21 didn't give me an anxiety attack every time I go in with friends I might actually find something! But that dress is great I love the colors and it will be perfect for fall.
