GREENERY
















DENIM VEST - LEVI'S VIA URBAN OUTFITTERS
DRESS - URBAN OUTFITTERS
BAG - COACH (VINTAGE, SIMILAR HERE)
SHOES - VAGABOND
SUNGLASSES - MARC BY MARC JACOBS

Are you tired of seeing me in dresses yet? What about the color khaki/green/olive/military green? Well if your answer happens to be yes to both of those questions, I am truly sorry to inflict you with the combination. I have been eagerly waiting to shoot this look and get it on the blog, because I am OBSESSED. I am not even kidding, this dress is my new favorite thing ever. I love a good turtleneck, and the cut and color are so flattering and easy to throw on with everything that I don't ever have to think about how I look when it's on. I just know that it's effortless, and what's better than that? I received this dress as a gift courtesy of my good friend Amanda, who's a student and creative presence in D.C. Click HERE to check out her Instagram page! Thanks a million if you're seeing this babe.

Normally I would pair this with a leather jacket or leather vest, but I've done khaki and black before and wanted to bring something lighter in to pull this dress in a summery direction. I think the vest gives the look an almost throwback feel, paired with the big glasses and the old Coach bag. Obviously, however, in the interest of simplicity and allowing the dress to have its moment, I prefer it on its own. There's just something so clean about the silhouette to me. Many apologies for the wrinkles (I'm lazy) and the peeking bra straps, I know they're there and they annoy me too. 

I just went with my favorite Vagabond sandals to top the look off and give my short self a little bit of height, and here it is! This dress comes in plenty of different colors, so I highly recommend you take a browse on the Urban Outfitters website or pop into your local store and try it on for yourself.  Knowing me, I'll probably go ahead and get it in the other options too, it's just that good! Let me know what you think of this post below pretty please, and I'll see you all in the next one. I'm striving for a little less khaki, but I can't promise anything!
