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 .

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
