I got this dress for all of $14.99 at Wal-Mart for our trip to Cabo San Lucas this summer. ( and I don’t think I ended up wearing it in a single picture! http://www.flickr.com/photos/69704373@N00/sets/72157605700625926/ )

I gave little thought to the use of the dress beyond wearing it in Mexico and to the occasional pool party through the summer, but it has actually served me well at the office. It is also going to transition to Fall beautifully which has come as a really nice surprise.

The necklace and earrings are by a brand you’ll see me wearing even more often than I wear self made things. Haute Hardware, by Erin Hanrahan. Erin is one of my very best friends and her designs speak to me so loudly I actually have to edit my purchases down to about 20% of what I really want! The earrings are silver and the necklace is gold and brass, but I don’t think it’s super noticeable, and I like that they look nice together without being too matchy matchy (I do have the matching necklace for the earrings, in gold, but I bought it in gold specifically to avoid the temptation to wear it as a “set” since I think that would be too much!)

The bag was bought in Cabo as well, and I love it. We spent several shopping trips looking for a bag like this, only to end up buying the bag I saw the very first day we were there.

I love this! You have got to come help me figure out my work clothes--there must be more options in my closet than I think there are, but I've totally stagnated!

Wal-mart (or as I call it, this shop near my work) has been very disappointing to me lately. No wrap dresses at all!

That dress is very cute. I don't recall seeing it this year.

Oh I love this dress. Love it. And it looks perfect paired with the wrap. I want to steal this from you!
