DD's Style File - Tangerine Dream

I'm a total dress girl. Always have been. Every so often my mom reminds of the years when I was in elementary school, that in the winters she had to keep me warm by putting pants on under my dresses because I was determined to wear a dress to school even if it was twenty degrees out!

And this dress right here, is my kinda dress. I happened to pick this up about four years ago at one of those "early bird" sales back when it was the old JCPenney and it quickly became one of my absolute favorite summer dresses every year.

It's a bold, bright hue with a summer pattern, the cut is very flattering plus it skims the figure just right.

One of the things that I especially like about this dress is that as my weight fluctuated up and down quite a bit over the last few years, the stretch in this lightweight jersey material allowed me to still fit into it!
...though I do clearly recall one year that the seam around the midsection was a tad too tight for my liking. 
Tangerine print dress - JCPenney
White handbag - Coach
Champagne sandal - Nine West
Necklace & cuff - The Limited
In previous years, I recall going the more traditional route and accessorizing with white sandals and pearls or silver jewelry. This year I wanted to mix things up a bit and give the dress a fresher, modern feel. I stuck with a white bag, but wore a matte champagne sandal, taupe cuff bracelet and neon yellow necklace with gold hoops.

It was one of those days where you feel like everything just worked! You know, the stars aligned and the hair was on point (because, yes, I still have bad hair days), the outfit came together and the makeup was perfect.

And so far, today's been a good day!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your week is off to a great start too!
