Go Green

Pin It
The weather has been awesome this week. I undoubtedly enjoy every minute of it. I purchased this dress a few months ago while vacationing in FL. I haven't had a chance to wear it yet since it's been so cold. This dress has been hanging in my closet since December waiting to be worn. As the weather got up to the mid-60s yesterday, I immediately took it out for a spin.

What I am wearing:
Dress: Be Bop pleated dress via Nordstrom Rack - size S
Cardigan: Ann Taylor crewneck cardigan - size XXSP
Shoes: Steve Madden Ulltra blush patent leather pump
Belt: H&M Necklace: Amrita Singh Montauk

This dress runs big. I am wearing a size small and it was big all around (especially the top part of the dress). The fit is obviously very important to me but sometimes, I have to give up the fit for something else that I love. In this case, it was the lovely kelly green color and those feminine pleats =)

On a separate note, I entered Refinery29’s Style Blogger Contest and would really appreciate it if you would vote for me. All you have to do is search for me (the quickest way is to use Ctrl-F key to find and click on the little heart next to my picture to vote. That’s it!

Thank you so much for your support!



I loveee the color! i just bought an old navy dress in that color too for spring! Weather here has been crazy warm too!!!


This is a gorgeous color combination, the green + yellow! You look so pretty in the dress, love all the pleats and the pocket detail.

This kelly green dress looks lovely on you along with this pale yellow cardigan. Sydney, your charm shines beautifully here.

So beautiful! And I agree - sometimes you have to give up something (in your case the perfect fit) for other things you love (the color and design). I actually think with the belt, it looks like a fabulous fit on you!

@Michelle Thanks for letting me know, Michelle. I have seen it. Excellent post! I am sure all of us have faked the fit to some extent.
