Orange Crush

I've had a crush on this skirt since I saw it on the runway, but the hefty price tag is what stands in the way of it living cosily in my closet.  Luckily, I've got mad sewing skillz and made one of my very own.  It still needs to be graded (it was one of my project for class), but I'll definitely show you guys soon.  I've never really been a fan of orange, but lately that's the color I've been drawn to.  I've also collected a bunch of maxi dresses over the past few weeks.  They're just so easy peasey to wear.  I been wearing this one non-stop.  I've paired it with heels, scarves, a white button up, lace, and a chunky necklace (and no, not all at the same time!), but I really love this dress with this whimsy giraffe belt that my BFF gifted me a few months back.  The zippered pocket on the belt also comes in handy. 

What have you guys been crushing on this season?

I've been TOTALLY crushing on those Target Dolce Vita knock offs. Like... I almost slept in them one night they were just so damn comfortable. I feel comfortable telling you this just because I know you are as in love with shoes as I am :-)

Oh my, it's been too long since my last visit... I mostly switched over to bloglovin & kind of let my google reader slip for a bit! Must remember to check more often! You look SO pretty in this dress! Can't believe you made it! And I'm with you - sooo drawn to orange these days, it's the color of the summer! Love it!
