Colors of the Wind

Wedges: Target (last season) - DV by Dolce Vita makes this identical version HERE
Belt: American Eagle
Bracelet: Target
Ring: Old Navy













 Okay, okay, I know...another Pocahontas reference. Yeah, I'm sort of obsessed, but the second I saw this 'Aztec Heavenly Maxi' from Retro Clothing, the soft, sweet chords of 'Colors of the Wind' began to play in my mind, and I immediately envisioned myself as my favorite Disney princess. Love at first sight? You better believe it.
When I received this dress, my expectations were blown away, as this dress far surpasses the pictures. It is SO much better in person. From the gorgeous, bright, neon colors to the slit up either side, this is one of those dresses that just makes you feel pretty. It's the perfect summer piece as it is light, airy and sheer.   This is the dress to wear to picnics and parties and any summer outing. Hey, I would even just wear it around the house...thats how perfect it is.
Although it came with a fun belt, I paired it with a sturdier braided belt for a more dressed down feel. Wedges and a few simple accessories made this the perfect outfit for a day at the lake.

Press play and sing along...you know you want to :)

  20. Ooo your dress, the setting, your hair, the song! It all works together so perfectly! I LOVE THIS. The dress has such pretty colors and I love how comfortable it looks too. And I can't believe it, but I don't think I've ever watched Pocahontas. But it's weird because I know all the songs haha. I should go watch it; it looks really interesting:)
