Hi-Ho Silver

Dress - ModCloth, Sandals - Target, Belt - F21
I know that I'm usually one for dressing in bright colors...or at least for always having some pops of color here and there, but I like to change it up every so often by going for a totally monochrome neutral look. This dress is the gift I mentioned here that Boyfriend bought me this past Valentine's Day. It still always warms my heart to imagine him clicking through all the dresses on ModCloth to find one that he thought I might like. He did good, didn't he? I love the shiny silver threads running through the dress that give it a bit of sparkle, as well as how the dress is both stretchy and comfortable but flattering and pretty as well. Not bad for a boy who used to dress like Turtle from Entourage before I started dating him (don't worry, Turtle is my favorite Entourage character). 

I didn't want to take away from the subtle sparkly silver threads running through the dress, so I wore it with a pewter belt and silver accessories, but I can see remixing it with bright colors and sweaters and jackets for the fall. That's one of the greatest things about a neutral piece...it's so easy to remix. Not that I'm going to tell Boyfriend that. If he thinks I can wear this dress over and over again, how will I get him to buy me another one? See, shopping makes me happy, but other people shopping for me makes me even happier. I hope you're writing this down. 

Hope everyone had a great three-day weekend!

Very cute! I love the monochrome silver. It's always very adorable when our other halves do lovely things like buying us clothes. He did a good job.

I love this dress! I have that belt as well! Just read your qwk bio and saw you have to wear pantyhose at times to the office...dear god!

@Jenn and @Olivia Thank you! Yes, I think I will keep him. I'll let him know his choice was approved!
@Bravoe Ugh. Yes, pantyhose. It's like my nemesis. That's part of why I'm obsessed with tanning...I think I can get away without wearing hose when I'm tan! =)

He done real good! I love the neutrals. Sometimes you don't need color. Plus if you ever want to add color with this dress, no problem there!
