Emily (of the other emily) wrote, "One of my favorite things to wear as the weather warms up is a bright dress, so I'd definitely start with the Artemis dress in Papaya. I think it would look great with a pair of cognac boots (with gray knee-socks peeking over the top), a braided leather belt, and a chunky gold necklace - all topped off with the signature messy blogger bun, of course." An easy dress, necklace and boots was just what I was in the mood for this weekend, for a lazy day of farmer's market, seeing Bridesmaids with friends, and tacos eaten on the front porch so I did the best that I could with Emily's suggestion (minus the blogger bun because my hair was clean for once yesterday :).
It was so kind of you all to enter and share your terrific styling suggestions--I will surely be mooching off them for months. And I have to give an honorary second-place to Maggie's amazing entry, which knocked my socks off.
P.S. Don't forget that you can still get 20% off anything you like at five bamboo with the discount code: sustainablenerds (among my favorites are the mini and the elusive dress).
