If you’re trying to look at this blog post at work, I would advise you to not. Everything about this look is bright and loud and I am not sorry for it. Bright colors have always been my thing; neutrals just don’t do that much for me. Also, two work-friendly looks in one week? Don’t worry guys, I’ll make sure to bust out some short shorts or a maxi dress with side cutouts soon to balance out all of this conservative.
What I love about this CC Lake dress is that it can transition from work to a wedding to date night with ease. I try to make my wardrobe stretch as far as I can on my entry-level budget, so this little number is a fabulous addition to my wardrobe.

  6. I LOVE those shoes! I really like how they strap across the front like that! I’m usually not a fan of Aldo shoes but these are adorable!

  7. Love the color of the dress. I’m a New Yorker and trying to get color in my closet is an ongoing struggle. Your photos are great too – what kind of camera do you use?

    Wow I love this dress! I love anything bright and colorful. I like the gold belt as well. I really need to get more into dresses this summer (I say that every summer lol). I’m all about just a t shirt and shorts but sometimes it’s nice to dress up!
