Orange Crush

bright summer dresses

The first outfit post for 2016 in a dress from the best place…

Gladiator sandals

Dress: Mum. Try Asos’ maxi dresses or try a shorter version (on sale).  Gladiator sandals: Mango. Try Ancient Greek (comes in darker colors).  Bag: Madewell.  Shades: Ray-Ban. Pendant: DIY

So I’m in a dress that Mum gave to me. “Do you like this?” she said, holding it up.  I almost couldn’t speak when I saw the eye popping orange and bell sleeves.

It’s hard to find a similar one to it although I KNOW I’ve seen one. If I remember I’ll link to it outside of the ones above.  A natural leather tote and sandals were added to keep it super dressed down.  You’ve seen the gladiator sandals in other outfit posts here with a jumpsuit and here with a crochet dress.
