Edgy Floral

I understand that most of what I wear is far from "edgy", but from time to time it is fun to take something that is classic, dare I say sweet, like a floral dress or polka dot shoes and add a little unexpected twist. This is exactly what I did today with my new dress from Milly for Kohl's. I bought this dress along with two others last weekend. I know the line isn't exactly new, as it was released a few months ago, but the sale prices now make the line an even better bargain than before. I paid under $30 for this dress, which in my opinion is very kate spade inspired and as I previously stated, a mere fraction of the price. While I may be late to the "Milly party" (other bloggers featured these in spades when they first came out) it's better late than never.

As I mentioned, I paired this dress with an unexpected twist in the form of a more "edgy" belt with studs. It's not my usual style, but now that summer is here, I feel much more free and not so inhibited and therefore it's fun to try new things. Plus, I am getting a head start on my list of things to do and see in the Los Angeles area. I am going to post this weekend where I am at in these pictures, but perhaps for those of you who live in the area or for those of you who have visited the area, you can take a guess!

  1. Lovely look! I like how you are colorful in each your outfit!

  2. Yet another gorgeous floral dress. I am in love with it and the gold belt too - does the belt come with it? I must say you did a great job matching the bracelets to your belt. I hope by the time I make it back to the States in early August I still find some Milly stuff at Kohl's. Sigh.

  3. I'm loving this fun mix of patterns and textures! That belt adds a nice edge to this girly look!

  5. Absolutely gorgeous, love the way you added the belt and played around with flower and polka dot prints

  6. Love this outfit! The mix of patterns with the shoes, the pop of yellow in the bag (which is perfection BTW!) and the wild belt. Great eclectic mix.


  7. Really love your dress! And love that pop of yellow!

  8. You pull off edgy well! Love, love the studded belt and the surprise pop of polka dot on your feet! Thanks for stopping by my blog this morning!

  11. What a fun mix - I love adding edgier pieces to balance out the sweetness of the outfit. I may live in SoCal but have no idea where this is. I stick to my Orange County boundaries and rarely make it pass it since traffic is always so horrible.

    Thank you for joining TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you next week. Have a great weekend!


  12. Adding the belt was a genius move! LOVE it! Thanks for linking up for Passion4Fashion! :)
