Ever since I purchased this skirt in the spring, I've had a bit of an affinity with the colour green. I'm fairly convinced that it's flattering on almost every skin tone and is a great shade to transition through the seasons with. This subtly patterned dress was found at Zara's summer sale and it accompanied me onto the One of a Kind boat cruise on Monday.

What colours have you been drawn towards lately?

Wearing: Zara dress, BCBGMAXAZRIA shoes, vintage Salvatore Ferragamo belt, Joe Fresh earrings, necklace from The Bay, MICHAEL Michael Kors bag (available here with the gold hardware!)


I adore that dress, the color and silhouette are so pretty, cool necklace!

Jen this outfit is beyond stunning! Especially the one of you looking beautiful. That colour suits you amazingly and goes especially well with your penchant for gold and leopard. I'm always drawn to blues and am still stuck in that colour rut...that and reds!

Hope you're having a good week so far love!

I am totally loving how this dress bells out, so adorable! Is it a recent purchase?

Oh, and next time you decide to go on a boat cruise, make sure you take me ;)

That dress is gorgeous on you and I am still SO obsessed with that bag! I need it in my life! So gorgeous! And yes, I am loving green lately too, I want to fill my fall with shades of forest and emerald green! Swoon! Also rich wine & burgundy shades, and burnt orange!

As always, looking beautiful. I love green too- one of my favorite colors to are reminding me that maybe I need something NEW that is green:)

You look super lovely, Jen! No wonder Nicole said you're one of the best dressed people on the boat that night (yes, I stalked your tweets! hahaha...) The belt is pure perfection, love the gold hardware and how you matched that with the gold hardware from your MbMK purse :)

In other words, PERFECTION! :D
Can't wait to see you tomorrow :)

you are so ladylike and chic, jen. i admire your style so much! :) love the gold accents throughout your outfit too. there's something about gold & green that is so appealing!

by Holly on July 27, 2011 at 8:33 AM. #

You look great!
I've been drawn to taupe, I love the mix of grey and purple. It's neutral, yet no where near boring.

by lica on July 27, 2011 at 9:32 AM. #

Me, Citron, bright yellow and red.

Basically, the color of hot peppers.

I am IN LOVE with that necklace. What are you talking about, "I can't do edgy"? You did it right there! You can do anything.

Gorgeous dress! Love the silhouette. And did I see "Zara summer sale" in your post? Excuse me while I dash IMMEDIATELY over to the mall!

by Kristin on July 27, 2011 at 4:51 PM. #

I've been feeling drawn to this shade of green lately, too, and this dress just reminds me of why- it's absolutely perfect on you! No one (by which I mean none of the people I shop with) seems to think green will suit me, but this post has me thinking I'm going to have to give it a try, anyway. Gorgeous as always :)

Lovely outfit! I cannot believe that necklace is from The Bay! I also cannot believe we missed each other especially when you were one of the best dressed there apparently!

Those shoes are to die for.
I'm in love with them!

You look gorgeous as usual.
