This past Sunday was definitely unseasonably warm for January. Here in the Burgh we had temperatures in the mid sixties, which was definitely a little treat for me to shoot in, considering the past few weeks have been brutally cold. However, I did take advantage of the spring like weather and decided to take to Station Square for brunch at Houlihan's! And what better way to celebrate warm spring like weather than to dress for it? So to keep in the warm weather mind set, I stepped out in my gorgeous new green dress from my sponsor and affiliate StyleWe.
Though I don't wear the color green often, it is a color that I love and connect with for quite a few reasons. The first being is that I absolutely love to be outdoors (well, at least when it's not freezing) and one of my fondest memories from when I was a kid is memories of my family and I camping in Kennerdell. Something about the fresh woodsy air and being surrounded by green just brought such a feeling of joy to me, and even as a child, I always felt rejuvenated after a weekend of rest and relaxation in the forest. The second reason I connect so much with the color green, is simply because it makes me think of my mum. This is because green has always been her favorite color, and much like me she loves to be outside and enjoy the weather during the warm months of spring and summer.
The reason I felt my pretty, new, emerald green dress from StyleWe would be the perfect fit for my brunch at Houlihan's in Station Square, wasn't only because this dress' rich green color mirrored the weather perfectly. But because I felt this little cocktail dress would be the perfect option to sip Bloody Mary's and enjoy a Sunday brunch.
The dress itself is a beautiful as well as unique piece for any occasion. The first thing that made this dress stand out to me was of course the luxurious green color, because I don't know about you, but I have had a really hard time finding any garments in (an attractive) green! So obviously I was thrilled when StyleWe offered to send me this gorgeous emerald green dress. The other great thing about this dress is that it is cut just right and makes it a good option for both work and play, due to the fact it's not too short to wear to the office, but is still fun and flirty enough for after hours activities! This dress is also true to size and fit me absolutely perfectly.
The last thing I adored about this lovely green dress was its pleated detailing on its hem and sleeves. These little details just add a fun, but sophisticated feel to this gorgeous emerald green cocktail dress. The reason I loved the pleated details so much is also because they give a very romantic and feminine feel to this dress which is a style I have been trying to incorporate more of into my wardrobe.
Lastly, to put the finishing touches on this beautiful green dress, I chose to pair this dress with my gold and turquoise Kendra Scott Dee Earrings (compliments of Rocksbox), my gold Cartier open heart bracelet, and this gorgeous drop pendant leaf necklace that I received from Fascino. The reason I chose these jewelry pieces is due to the fact the gold jewelry really stands out against the lush green, and the turquoise color of the drop earrings complemented the green of this dress perfectly.
