Loving this today.  So girly but so edgy and funky.  Basically so me.

This dress is a fave.  I love houndstooth, especially on a dress with such a feminine shape and a pop of neon in the belt.  Of all the times I’ve worn this dress, my favorite looks have always been when I paired it with (faux) pearls.  So I decided to go all out with the pearl jewelry today.  I was worried about it being a little costumey, but I think it’s fun.

I just got this Betsey Johnson bracelet.  As soon as I saw it I knew it was a must for me–it says “Paris is always a good idea” which is a quote I love.  The charms on it are little bows and Eiffel towers and I love how its a young, fun spin on  a classic pearl bracelet.

This neon crossbody matches today, but I also love wearing it as a pop of color with neutral outfits or even other, non-neon colors.  I think a pop of neon against muted or richer colors is awesome.  And with a denim top–so easy, so on trend.  I got this bag at the most AMAZING boutique, Ambiance, in San Fransico.  They had an amazing selection of fantastic vegan bags, cute clothes, and great costume jewelry and scarves.  I want to go back now!

What I’m wearing today:

  • Almost Famous dress (comes with belt) from Charlotte Russe
  • Hue tights
  • Madden Girl boots
  • J. Crew cardigan
  • Melie Bianco bag
  • Necklace from M2 boutique Chicago
  • Earrings from my mom
  • Betsey Johnson bracelet from Zappos.com

Title from Lady’s Gaga’s new song Gypsy, which is currently rocking my world.
