going-out style

Summer Nights Series: Emerald

Dress: Bebe (similar here) | Shoes: Aldo (see better options below)

Sad reality – these shoes aren’t the greatest match with this dress. Sadder reality – when you move across the country with your life packed into two suitcases, packing the perfect pair of dress-up shoes isn’t quite on the top of the list. Β But hey, these Steve Madden babies would look killer with a dress like this… or these, or these, or these… You catch my drift. This has to be by far one of my favorite fitting dresses of all time. As you can see, the seeming on the lines along the hip are coming apart – which is probably why I stole this dress for a whopping 80% off, but regardless – it’s too beautiful (and an easy fix). It’s a bandage dress, so naturally, like all bandages dresses do, it sucks in all the little extra blub you might have laying around and makes you feel firm and tight (I think all of us wouldn’t mind that feeling in a tight dress every once in awhile). The fabric is ultra comfy and the details are all so flattering. I’ve never been able to complain about the fit on any of my dresses from Bebe – they’re magical!

Hi guys!

The crop top is from H&M (here) as well as the skort. These skort’s are really in style right now and you have probably seen them around a lot. Some styles come fully in a skirt, but I love the short version. It makes it more casual and comfy πŸ™‚
I wore a black bandeau underneath the crop top to go with the black Michael Kors heels (here) and added just a touch of silver jewelry with tiny midi-rings, a small silver Cape-Cod bracelet, a small silver necklace and silver earrings that had a light aqua blue in the center. I found my really cute midi-rings for less at Pac Sun (here) and my earrings for less at Forever 21 (here)
