Working the Bright Shift

Today’s featured dress, a recent bargain buy at Madewell, was a must-have for me because of its vibrant color and zippered details. I was so drawn to those two elements that I was willing to overlook my preference for waist-defined dresses in the case of this bright shift dress. The reduced price of the dress during a sale on sale at Madewell gave me that extra encouragement I needed to purchase it too.

In today’s post, the dress anchors the entire look. A mint spike necklace, nude d’orsay sandals, and a woven tote are cool complements.

    Love this. The color of the shift is amazing on you and the necklace is perfection with it. And your hair is just beyond amazing.
