DRESS: Giveaway win from Boohoo via Lost in the Haze ♡♡♡ BAG: ModCloth; still available at Amazon SHOES: ASOS (similar, similar)

Hello! I won this dress in and giveaway via Jo from Lost in the Haze and it is absolutely p e r f e c t! The color, metallic elements, cut-out, fit - it's so gorgeous and has definitely become one of my favorite items in my wardrobe! Definitely will be purchasing from Boohoo again!

I paired it with this shell purse I bought a couple months ago from Modcloth (thank you again to Kate Gabrielle who sent me a tweet telling me it was on sale before I missed it! *_*) - it's sold out but can still be purchased on Amazon!


(please ignore my awkward pose and just look at the purse haha!)

Who else is getting excited for summer?! I have to be honest, I am kind of sad by how it's already so late in May (this year is going by way to fast and I haven't accomplished anything ;_;) - but the idea of making and eating a copious amount of popsicles, making a zine with my friend Cassie, hopefully gaining the courage to wear some candy colored high-waisted shorts, and roller skating is keeping me from being *too* upset!

Do you have any exciting plans for summer? ♡

p.s. I was interviewed by Matra from Style Alchemy as part of her Style Muse feature - such an honor! Take a peek at the interview here

  49. First thing I noticed about the dress (besides how stunning you look in it) is that the silver pattern looks like scales, therefore you are wearing a mermaid dress! Which obviously looks awesome with the shell bag!
