Don’t call it a comeback… I’ve been here for years! It’s been a little since our last wear and share Wednesday but Jackie from Living After Midnite and I are back! And we couldn’t of picked a hotter summer dress to style two ways, the mark. Love On The Lime Dress ($44).
This mark. Love On The Lime dress is a lightweight dress in a crepe like fabric and zesty lime color is the perfect piece to wear the neon trend. Neon has been on my summer wish list lately (as seen in my last post) and the mark. Love On The Lime dress is an easy way to go mega neon. It’s draped top silhouette, adjustable belt and flirty hemline makes this dress a must-have for everything your summer entails from work to weddings to nights out!
Sometimes its hard to update your working girl wardrobe with summer trends, especially a trend like neon, but its all about finding the right piece. This dress is the right piece! I can’t tell you how many compliments I got at the office! The punchy color stands out but the shape keeps it appropriate. And let me tell you, even on a 106 degree day this hot dress is surprisingly cool!
With such a bright color you don’t really need to do much to accessorize, just focus on the details. I like anchoring neons with neutrals like black, white, nude, navy, etc… Since I styled this for work I anchored it with black accents. The mark. Twist Of Lime Pumps were the PERFECT shoe! The pointed toe styling works for the office and the twist of lime detailing on the straps keep it fun. You can get the mark. Twist of Lime heels coming up on clearance for only $29.99!
My black accents are carried through my baubles as well! The mark. Multi Mix Necklace couldn’t of been a better way to link the Twist of Lime Heels with the Love On The Lime dress! It’s also on clearance right now for $14.99, but hurry only for a limited time! Then I finished it off with a little arm party featuring my Kate Spade Idiom Bangle and mark. Sparkle In A Snap bracelet, and Avon Signture Watch and a nude clutch from Express.
I’m really loving the versatility of this look for summer! Its really one hot look that I can see working with so many different accessories for so many different events. I mean, just look how different Jackie’s look is with pink and nude accents over at Living After Midnite! Like I said from work to weddings to nights out! You’ll definitely get noticed in all the best ways and show of that summer tan!
On a hot summer day its so hard to look, and feel, cool. The color is hot but the cool lightweight material definitely is a life saver. There’s also no way I’m going to be able to complete the look with a blow out… that’s when the mark. That’s Beachy Texturizing Spray comes into play (last seen here). On wet hair I just spray and scrunch and go! My summer beauty look is just as easy, because you know you need to spend as little time as possible in that stuffy bathroom getting ready. Use a neon purple shadow like mark. Neon Gaze in Violet Fever to line your top lash line with a thick line using a wet eyeliner brush in the shadow. Follow it up with a thin black line using mark. No Place To Run eyeliner in Jet Set and full mascara like Avon Mega Effects. A little bronze on the cheeks with mark. Island Beauty Pallet and coral on the lips with mark. Make It Rich Lip Crayon in Punch (on clearance for $6.99!) and you’ve got yourself a complete total look that’s nothing but hot for summer!
