Today I was going for a tropical summer look to officially embrace the warm weather we have had all of these days! I started off wanting to wear this colorful dress my parents got me last time I was in Panama... so I decided to wear that as a skirt with a white top and brown belt (combo that never fails!). And then to add a little extra something, I decided to wear my beloved lime green Steve Madden wedges! I dunno why, but I love these babies :)

I also added a really cool statement necklace my parents gave me a while back... and to finish off the tropical look, I decided to do some hidden braids in my hair. I wanted it to be barely noticeable but still there... I really like how subtle the hairstyle turned out!!

  12. I love this outfit! So bold, with so many interesting little details (the necklace, the braids, the color on the shoes...) I especially love all of this tropical color paired with the cool white top.

    I actually saw just black Steve Madden wedges like yours at the thrift store I tend to shop at...they were my size, but I could only find one of the pair in their bin of loose shoes! Disappointing, especially seeing how cute they are on you!

  17. Ok. I would have never though I would like green wedged shoes, but they do look so lovely with the outfit. They look fresh and perfect for summer.

    And I do love the hidden braids!
