Lucky FABB Series: Day 1 Outfit

April 10, 2013


Wearing:
Dress: BBDakota
Blazer: Forever 21 (similar)
Wedges: Franco Sarto via Nordstrom
Necklace: LOFT (in store and on sale!)
Pave Link Bracelet: J.Crew
Arrow Bangle: gift (similar)
Watch: Michael Kors

I would be lying if I said I didn't put a lot of thought into this outfit for Day 1 of Lucky FABB (Lucky Magazine's Fashion and Beauty Blogger Conference), but it's so true. I knew I wanted to be bright, colorful, and springy! Mint and floral was my absolute first choice, and this gorgeous BBDakota dress was an absolute steal! It's very affordable, and I love the detail on the hem and its' flowy chiffon material. I would definitely recommend it for a summer wedding or any sort of party! It's got dainty, little spaghetti straps, you just can't see them in this post!

I've also been wearing the LOFT necklace I bought a few weeks ago with EVERYTHING! It's lightweight, and neutral, but makes a subtle statement with almost every outfit I've paired it with. Lastly, I'd like to address my never-ending love affair with the classic legacy Coach cross body bag. I've only purchased vintage cognac brown ones up until this point, but I decided that I needed a gorgeous Spring color to tote around my keys, wallet, and lip color. The Penny bag in mint is not only a gorgeous color, but it also matches my blogger business cards ;) (a total plus!)

I really hope that you're having an amazing week, I just wanted to take the time to let you know, as a reader that I appreciate you! My next post over the weekend will be a Recap of my Day 1 Lucky FABB experience. It includes lots of helpful information that I learned about being a blogger! I've got lots of notes that I'm prepared to share with you- it will almost be like you were there with me! That's what I'm aiming for anyway.
