Emerald City. Emerald Dress?

Flats-Steve Madden

It's always super disappointing when an outfit's color doesn't photograph as vibrant as it looks in person. This dress actually is a brighter, emerald color...not turquoisey-blue hued, as these photos suggest. However, I still love the dress in these just have to use your imagination a bit :)

There is something so great about a simple dress like this. The chevron-esque pattern, short little sleeves and finished with a belt. I am sold.
Also, I was digging the pattern/texture mixin' I had going on pairing it with my new black flats!

Sooooo, how are you guys?! I hope you're having a splendid weekend! As I am typing this, I have a boneless pork shoulder/butt beginning to cook in the crock pot. By the time I wake up in the morning, there should be some tender and delish pork ready for me to shred for pulled pork sandwiches.
I am one of those people who use the Super Bowl as an excuse to cook special foods, but don't give a hoot about the actual game. :)

  4. Oh wow the pulled pork sounds amazingly delicious! haha..

    And your dress looks so pretty! I love the subtle chevron print on it. Sad that the color isn't the same as in person. Still pretty though!

  5. I'm definitely one of those people too :) Love that dress on you!

  6. Aw, you're making me miss my bangs... and this dress is so darling. Adore the chevron and the colour is beautiful on you!! Happy weekend! xo

  7. Even if it's a different color in person, this dress looks seriously gorgeous here! I always get sad when I see bloggers wearing cute Target things that I somehow missed. I have to pay more attention.

  8. Such a pretty color, and I'm really loving your bangs! Not a lot of people can pull of the bangs look, but you definitely can :)

  9. It's always so weird to me when the colors of my clothes seem so off despite my skin and hair seeming alright. I can imagine the rich emerald color you say your dress is, though it looks just as good in the teal it photographed as, hehe.

  10. Yep, definitely loving this emerald color for the 2013 year! Great dress, girl!
