Lemon Drop


Sometimes the easiest thing to do when you're not sure what to wear is to just throw on a simple dress with a statement necklace & bright clutch.  I love the easy shape of this classic shift...plus the interesting details & bright/neutral colorblocking had me sold.




What I'm wearing:
New York & Company dress (sold out online, check your local stores), J. Crew necklace (via eBay), Boutique 9 heels, ASOS clutch, Target sunnies

Gorgeous dress and I love the open back detail on it! From the front it looks so simple but when you turn around the simple dress transforms into something fun and unique. Also love how you added an extra pop of color with the clutch!

Do you know the style number for the dress? I see the all red and all black online, but not a colorblock one. I want to call customer support and see if they can find one in store to ship to me. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

This dress and the color is amazing on you. I have no words! Is that the J.Crew necklace you were talking about on Twitter?

The detail on the back of this dress makes it quite unique. You can really get away with yellow, with me I feel so washed out! Lovely spring outfit :-)
