This is definitely one of the more unusual dresses I’ve ever worn. I wasn’t sure if I liked it the first time I saw it or not. I was very attracted to all the bright mish-mash of rainbow colors, but the design looked like a Rorschach test to me haha.
After I tried it on, I really liked the structured, tight-fitting top with the flared, flutter skirt. It took me a couple visits, but I eventually ended up buying it, and I’ve fallen in love with it a little bit more all the time!
Like I mentioned, I wore this to sub so I wanted to make sure I looked very professional but still cute. I added my favorite statement necklace my friend Lyssa got me and matched it with my ridiculously cheap turquoise wedges I got on sale at Cato (I bought a black pair too because how can you say no to nice shoes for four bucks?!). Then I finished with my gold earrings from Skye and my mom’s gold bracelet–which I’m aware I wore in my last outfit post, but that outfit inspired me on this one! 🙂
Okay. Now for the truth. That outfit isn’t really exactly the one I wore–I put on those wedges, wore them around for like ten minutes as I was getting ready to leave, and just decided I was too tired to wear heels that day. It’s not that they’re not comfortable–they are, very! But wearing any heels, no matter how comfy or low-heeled they are, is a workout for my calves, and I just couldn’t be bothered. Here’s what I really wore:

That’s right– boring, sensible black flats haha. But hey, my feet and legs didn’t hurt a bit at the end of the day! If you’re wondering what the total was with the shoe change, a friend of mine actually gave me those so they don’t add anything to my total.
As always, I hope you like my outfit as much as I did, and I’ll have another outfit coming your way relatively soon, so keep an eye out for it!

Pax,
Sara

PS I recently did a color run called Color Me Rad with my sister and two of my closest friends. Since this post is about colorful clothes, I figured this would be an appropriate place to share a couple of my favorite pictures from the day.
