Dress: gifted BB Dakota, Heels: Balenciaga, Clutch: Celine, Necklace as Belt: Ralph Lauren, Sunglasses: Celine, Necklace: Jennifer Zeuner

I had to break my causal streak to head to a meeting
and this bright printed dress definitely made it easier
to swallow!
Long live lazy summer days :)

 I love taking pieces like this long
chain necklace (that was already in my closet) and making
them into totally new and transitional pieces. Using the
necklace as a belt was such a fun way to add dimension
to the dress!

Nicole

Love how bright, colourful, and truly summer this whole outfit looks! It's a great dress to wear casually or dressy and of course, am so jealous of the Celine bag.
