 Dress: Urban Outfitters Cope Puckered Frock (recent) - XS / $30 (similar - i love this color) (a 3/4 length sleeve option)
Belt: braided belt (borrowed from Forever 21 Twill Pants) - (similar - on sale $14)
Shoes: Boutique 9 Keeva in Cognac - 5.5 / $87 (buy in nude) (similar)
Purse: Melie Bianco Madison - $50 (buy
Watch: Michael Kors "Small Runway" (MK5430) - $127 (buy)
Bracelet: Charlotte Russe (recent) - $3 (similar - although a little pricey)
Necklace: Amrita Singh Nello via Hautelook -$38 (buy)

This dress was another one of my Urban Outfitters sale finds (my romper was the other). The dress naturally has a really wide trapeze cut and was like one big umbrella on me, but with a little help from a waist belt, it actually was quite the little number! The stripes and asymmetrical hemline really stood out to me and the sheer fabric make it something that's absolutely perfect for a hot Texas day.  I was actually tempted to just leave the house without any accessories as I wanted the dress to stand out on its own, but in the end my love for statement jewelry won {you know me}.

  8. Kileen this dress is fan-freaking-tastic! It fits you like it was made for you. If I would have tried on an umbrella cut dress I would have passed but look at you. You are beautiful and fashionable. I hope you are proud of yourself. I like that you added a statement necklace though that dress could get by alone as well like you said. I am in love with that dang dress and your hot weather!
    Cheers,
    Bre

  10. You look so tan in these pictures! I love the caramel color of your shoes and bag with the dress. I think that bag was made especially for you. Let's call it The Kileen!

    It has been too hot for too long. I miss the icy cold temperatures of North Park.

  11. i'm still getting over my tan from Africa! I'm actually not a fan of being so tan and wish I were pale again, lol. And yes, Northpark is pretty much the only place that's nice and consistently chilly. Love it too! :)
