Yaaiii!! Today I found out that I would be going back home for spring break!!! Yaaaaiii! I'm so excited!! So to celebrate I decided to wear a happy outfit (well actually, I wear happy outfits each day but whatever!). I decided to pair this pretty floral dress with this rich navy turtleneck making the dress look like a skirt. I finished it off with this shiny bow necklace which landed me a whole lot of compliments today :)

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this dress:

  1. you´re incredible how you re-invent how to wear your clothes. I would never have known that was a dress as it looked like a skirt. So you get multiple uses out of one dress. The outfit looks fantastic and how everything combines focused on the shiney bo necklace. Also like the quiet pop of the tights and boots to offset it all a little to make it even more interesting. jgm

  2. Nice occasion to wear this dress celebrating your return to Panama for spring break. The 2 pics of ways you wore this dress -- one is today celebrating going to Panama and the other is in Panama with the El Valle hotel in the background. El Valle is a little country town settled inside the crater of a volcano in Panama. We are very excited 2 and feel we will erupt with excitement of your return! dad

  3. I love the pattern on the dress! I definitely thought it was a skirt at first too.

  4. Yay for fabulous spring break plans! This outfit is simply gorgeous, all those compliments are well-deserved. The caramel color of the boots adds a whole lot of warmth to those blues. Lovely!

  5. I love all the blue/teal!!! It so stunning on you, its brings out the color of your eyes.

  6. Oooh, you always have such terrific happy colors for your outfits! I love the wearing a dress as a skirt versatile! :)

  7. so cute!

    i know this is random, but you have SUCH pretty eyes!

  8. I have always loved that dress on you since the blues and teals are just perfect with your green eyes. It really is amazing that you would put a turtle neck sweater over your dress. Love the color mix and the boots and tights give it a warm feeling. Amazing how you manage to remake an outfit. The shiny belt/bow gives it an added interest and sparkle.

  9. This is beautiful and I love how vibrant both your clothes and your personality are. You bring joy to my day!! This really is awesome though.

  10. Wow, that sequin belt is phenomenal! I love the way you wore the dress (as a skirt.)
