Sequins and Sea Breezes: Tribal Midi

Tribal Midi

5/19/2014


Happy Monday dolls! Wow this weekend went by fast! I really think we should have longer weekends so we can feel more recharged on Monday. I always end up doing so much running around that I never feel like the weekend was long enough. Although even if I had an extra day I'd probably still be tired so I don't know if that would really help but it's a nice thought! 

I finally bit the bullet and tried out the midi dress trend but instead of doing the flowy midi dress I went for a more form fitting one to see if that might elongate me. I have to admit, I'm not 100% sold on it yet but I don't hate it so that's a plus, right? I found this dress at Forever 21 and I love the print and the colors and you can't beat the price tag. Can you believe this dress was only $10.80?? If I'm going to try a trend I've never tried before and am hesitant about, Forever 21 is the way to go! I love that this dress is perfect for a summer day at work but is fun enough where I'd wear it out to dinner as well. To throw in some extra color I paired it with a turquoise stone necklace and bracelet which added a little pop without taking too much away from the dress. I decided to go neutral on the bag and heels, mainly because I feel like nude heels elongate you even more and I felt I definitely need that wearing a midi dress. What do you think of the midi dress trend? Is it something you'll try or are you waiting for it to go out?

  11. You are killing that midi! And I love how you matched your lipstick with it. Forever 21 is good for trying out trends you're not sure about -- for under $15. This dress looks like it's worth more!

  25. This dress is so pretty! I wouldn't have guessed it was Forever 21, it looks more expensive than that! Now I have to go get one.... :) I agree, I think we should work 4 day weeks and have 3 day weekends. We should start a campaign.
