You saw a glimpse of this outfit from my mother’s day post, so here’s the full outfit. I got this dress last year (see how I wore it last year here and here) and I mentioned on my facebook page that Forever 21 brought this dress back in stock and many of you told me you were able to get it! Yay! I really love this dress, I think it’s one of my favorite Forever 21 pieces ever. It’s really well made and the lace is just so pretty. The length is a little too short for my liking so I always end up belting it and wearing it as a tunic/top but I’ve seen it won as a dress on many other bloggers and it looks fantastic. I wanted to offset the girliness of the lace with some unexpected pieces so I paired it with my slim black trousers that I typically reserve for work and my funky Madewell necklace that made the top a little less “sweet”. The hot pink shoes came last just because I wanted to add color in the outfit.
I had a few questions about the size of my bag and it is the “large” size which I think is perfect. I’m about 5’2″ (5’6″) in heels and I think it’s a great size for me. I can carry a lot in it! The Dooney & Bourke “Florentine” Satchel is really similarly shaped don’t you think?
