Sunny Days



There is no better instant mood-lifter than a bright flowy dress, a big floppy hat & a cheery red lip.  Not only is it feminine & fun, but there is an unmistakably retro feel to this combination...it reminds me of something my mom would have worn in her younger years.  (This little heart ring is my new favorite accessory - very similar to the Marc Jacobs version which is sold out everywhere - but mine was less than $2!)


  

What I'm wearing:
H&M dress (similar splurge, similar neon yellow & similar under $30), BCBG sandals, Target hat (here), Vintage & Monet bracelets, Forever 21 ring (here or similar here), Mudd sunnies (on sale here), Lips: L'Oreal Target Red, Nails: Essie Tart Deco

What an amazing blog. I love how you totally recreate something that could be so expensive - but make it really doable for all of us non-supastas out there.

The yellow of this dress is gorgeous, and I can't believe how it matches the yellow of the light! How perfect.

And the red lip takes it from being overly youthful to simply sophisticated. You look amazing.

Hats are a very feminine accessory that shouldn't miss from any woman's wardrobe.

For myself I prefer a bigger one.

You look very good in yellow.

I love this yellow dress - it's so simple and fun for the summer.

I bought the same dress and was so excited to find the perfect sunny dress....when I got home, I noticed a big oil looking stain in it. Of course, they didn't have any more in stock when I returned it.

What a great find!
