SLIDER

Hit of Teal


The sun decided to play peek-a-boo with us. During the early afternoon it came out in all its blazing glory for a brief moment before ducking behind some clouds again. Sigh.


However, I managed to snap a few pictures in this outfit before it hid again. Sorry for how bright they turned out! When that sun came out, its light was searing.
 This dress is something I've been dying to break out for the warm weather. I snatched it up at PacSun around October or so for $3!
Its got such a cute cut-out back, and I'm so excited to show it off. Haha, now to tan so I don't look quite so ghostly!




Its a simple yet pretty dress, but it got a whole lot more fun when I added on my bright, floral belt that I recently thrifted. When I found this on the belt rack, I had to grab it just because of the teal color and floral pattern. I had no clue what I'd wear it with, but I just knew I'd get use out of it. Plus, for $1, who could argue?



Playing around with the teal color, I added some teal sandals and earrings for a matchy look. However, I love it! I'm definitely going to wear this out again on a sunny day.
