Flirty in Floral

This outfit is a complete 180 from Monday’s post, right? I know I’ve been saying it over and over – but that seriously is exactly how the weather has been in Chicago these past few weeks! I can’t keep up, you guys! In fact, I took these photos during a day I thought would be 50 degrees, but actually turned out to be 30 LOL!

The good thing is that warm temperatures aren’t far away, and you better believe that this floral bell sleeve dress is the perfect piece! The bell sleeve action is my favorite, and I’ve been loving the high-neck trend since last spring, so I’m glad it’s still in style this year. What I love about this floral bell sleeve dress in particular is that it’s the ultimate pick-me-up with the pretty print and bright colors, and to top it off it’s from my friends at NOVAA! I introduced them to the blog last month with this gorgeous paisley dress, and what sets them a part is that their an ethical fashion line here in Chicago that ethically sources abroad or in the USA. Pretty cool, right?

I decided to play up the colors and add some of my favorite brown accessories – like these amazing Chloe dupe wedges that are only $60! I wasn’t sure whether I wanted them (because every. single. blogger. has. them), but I decided that they go with literally everything, and will be so perfect with white jeans!

I also think this floral bell sleeve dress is perfect for being casual during the day with flat sandals, or dressed up with a cute pair of heels!
