Stepping Stones

Dress: Forever 21 {similar here}
Jacket: Forever 21 {here}
Espadrilles: Saks Fifth Avenue brand {similar here}
Bag: Chloé "Paraty" 
Earrings: Target {similar here}
Necklace: Temple St. Clair for Target {similar here} {and here}
Bracelets: Asos {similar here}, Target, and vintage
Sunglasses: Chloé "Ammi" {here}

Happy Monday friends! I found this simple summery dress at Forever 21 recently and love it (and also bought it in pink)! They were only $12 (on sale) and the back opening and closure hits in the right spot so you can still wear a bra. Unfortunately, I cannot find them online right now, so check your local stores if you're interested.

Holy cow..you look AMAZING in that third pic! It's like you're glowing from the inside.

Fantastic dress...and the fact that you can still wear a bra even with that adorable cutout! Love! Thank you F21 for thinking of these things!
