Birds on the Water

Sunglasses: Goodwill, Dress: The Clothes Exchange, Belt: The Possibility Shop, Bag: Rue 21, Pumps: Naughty Monkey (via Stella Mae), Ring: Forever 21This dress was my favorite purchase from The Clothes Exchange. The print is what first caught my eye, the bright blue birds with the golden and red detailing were too much to resit. The dress’s sweetheart neckline and classic silhouette makes me think of the Under the Sea dance from Back to the Future.

It was too treacherous to wear my Naughty Monkey’s on the rocks at Oakledge but I liked the blue birds and red and white check worked together. I was a little worried about the bold patterns clashing but the subtle touches of red in the dress’s pattern and then red belt tied everything together well. In fact I’m thinking this outfit may be perfect for  Fourth of July cocktails on the lake.

What outfits/parties do you have planned this  fourth of July?

    • Thanks Christine, my mom actually bought it for my sister to wear under her graduation gown almost 5 years ago and she never wore it, so the last time I was home I stole it!
