Help me style this green dress!

Hey lovely readers!  I have a mission for you.  So I broke down and bought this green hi-lo maxi dress at Target.  I've been obsessing over hi-lo dresses for a while now, and this versatile strapless/halter dress caught my eye.  You just don't see dresses in this bright, verdant green color everyday.  I reeeeally want to wear it this weekend, but I"m feeling a little lost as to what to wear it with.  

I have several pairs of cute sandals.  Silver blingy ones.  Black sparkly ones.  Brown gladiators.  And a new pair of pretty turquoise sandals.  I have purses galore---but I'm trying to decide between a few slouchy bags: teal, camel, or pretty floral.  I'm on a gold jewelry kick, but how much is too much?  Should I give the dress a hippie vibe with wooden beads and leather jewelry?  Do I glam it up with gold hoops, my gold boyfriend watch, and a fab necklace?  Or should I just wear a simple but statement-making, sparkly, girly floral bracelet?

I just don't know!  It's a super soft, very comfy, lovely, flowy dress and I can't wait to wear it.  But it's got me stumped.  I definitely want to lean more on the casual side.  

Suggestions please and thank you! :)

The brown gladiators, for sure! Especially if you want to stay casual. And maybe skip a necklace and go with some stacked bangles instead? So cute!
Gold gold gold! It'd look so regal
Halter neck? Skip the necklace, go with stacked bangles and some statement earrings - if your a gold girl then go with gold!! Either some sex gold hoops or some boho gold chandeliers! Brown gladiators would look great with the gold jewels and you could go a pop of colour with your purse....

Be sure to show us a pic!

I think the brown sandals, bangle bracelets, and the floral bag... That dress is awesome! I might have to head over to Target :)

I'd add a light jean jacket with it and gladiator sandles fo sho! Bangles and native looking earings too! Such a cute dress:)

Hey just loved the collection! The bag, the dress, foot-wares and bracelets all are just awesome. I liked that flower print and brown bag the most.

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)
