Calypso St. Bart for Target Maxi Dress, Yellow Cardigan and Turquoise

MAXI DRESS - Calypso St. Bart for Target (Thrifted)
YELLOW CARDIGAN - Gap Outlet
TURQUOISE NECKLACE - Gifted from Hawaii
Sparkles and her "belt"
Princess Sparkles is obsessed with belts.  But not always the way you're thinking.  Yesterday she took my vintage red belt that I wore on my high waisted jeans and used it as a "leash" for her stuffed animal (this will teach me to put my things away immediately after wearing).  Today she took a musical instrument and creatively turned it into a "belt."  

Today I decided to whip out the Calypso St. Bart for Target maxi dress I got at the Goodwill by my mom's house for $4.  Seriously, it was such a find because it was brand new, the only one there and it just happened to be my size.  Oh, and it was 50% off!!!

I wanted to show you all some more beautiful lovelies from my favorite sponsor, Jaclyn1423.  Be sure to keep an eye out next week for a giveaway she'll be doing on my blog.  My first!  I'm so excited!

Bronze and Teal Rose Ribbon Necklace - $9.50

Ivory Rose and Pink Dangle Earrings - $9.00

Anyway, I've been really into the bright color combos which just feel so summery to me.  But I did realize I wore a similar color combo on Sunday.  Oops!  Oh well.  But I guess I need to get more creative and do artistic stuff like use musical instruments as accessories!

ooooo I LOVE this outfit!!!!! I actually once wore almost the near reverse.....a yellow maxi with a bright pink cardi. The reason it comes to mind now is I just sent a photo of the outfit to my sister, asking if she wanted the dress (since I bought two for some reason....woops!)
