For my St. Patty’s day post, I wore my Lulu’s green sheer pleated skirt but I told you guys that wasn’t what I actually wore on St. Patrick’s day. If you are a Fashionista Next Door follower on Facebook, you got a sneak peek of my real St. Patty’s Day outfit — this flirty green dress from Zara.
As you all know, I am LOVING color this spring. Zara has a ton of gorgeous dresses in vibrant colors for about great prices!! I picked up this great Kelly green dress a couple months ago. First of all, it’s ponte…who doesn’t love anything made of ponte? It’s such a great fabric… basically wrinkle free, and it feels like sweats! Really, can you beat that? Heck no! Unfortunately, the dress is no longer available in green on the website (not that it matters since you can’t buy online anyway). It could still be available in stores. The dress also comes in red if you’re interested.
I accessorized my dress with my H&M white flower pin. Remember, my flower pin obsession last summer? It’s baaaaack. Anyway, I also decided to do a little color blocking opting for a pair a low heeled blue pumps. This is pretty much the way Zara styled this dress on their website (less the flower pin). I thought it was so cute. I just had to recreate it! I couldn’t find Zara’s blue suede court shoes in store, but I did find these INC “Atlantic Blue” pumps at Macy’s for $60.
Fabrice didn’t get the blue shoes. I tried to tell him that matching doesn’t necessarily have to mean literally matching but he wasn’t going for it. Lol! A few days later I found ran across this picture of Heidi Klum wearing blue shoes with a coral top in People StyleWatch, and I just had to show it to him. Of course, he still said it didn’t match but at least he knows I’m not just making this stuff up. Lol! I’ve had the matchy matchy debate with him many times before. I am pretty sure he is not gonna get on board “not matching” anytime soon.
