Feelings of Fate

When I saw this lone dress at Ann Taylor, I knew she was coming home with me. She was an online-exclusive color returned to the store and she was my size. Not to mention, army green is my absolute favorite color to wear. Meant to be? I think yes!

This dress is perfect for the summer (breezy & billowy), but the color and length will take me into fall, too. I picture it with tights, booties, and a blazer!

    I just saw a super-similar dress at Macy’s over the weekend and was regretting that I didn’t try it on. I might have to check out this alternative!

    Super cute! I love the army green with the leopard print (would look great with that KS bag!) and the hi-low is just perfect.

    Oh my gosh. How beautiful is this dress??!? Well the whole outfit really. I love the dress (color and silhouette), but I really love how you styled it with the layered baubles and leopard belt. I think this might be one of my favorite outfits!

    That dress kind of reminds me of the Otte Ellen dress, and your hair looks fantastic here. I’m going to start taking cues from you and actually do mine sometime, haha!

    You’re midi rings are so great! And I love how you’ve styled them with the dark green dress. Such a great transitional color from summer into fall.

    Loved how this dress looked and ended up buying it a while ago, but now I’m having a hard time making it work for fall. I don’t think the high-low trend stood the test of time 🙁 I wonder if I should hem it to an even length.
