All that glitters is green... and blue.

Ever since I received this beautiful green gemstone Zara necklace as a gift from my friends (thank you!) I have been wanting to do an outfit post with it.




I know that this necklace is rather versatile and can be worn with many colours and tones but I had it in my mind that I had to be green that I wore this beautiful necklace with.

Though I have to say that it is a little bit hard to find the right outfit when green isn't so in season. Luckily for me ASOS (yet again hehe) have this gorgeous bold printed tulip dress. A light bulb went off in my head as soon as I saw it. woo hooo!

The four things I love most about this dress are

1. Tulip shape, and midi sleeves. Peerrrrrfect for the office (perfect for me anyway)
2. The fabulous blues on this dress let me accessorise my outfit with another gorgeous present I received for my 24th birthday.
3. When the sunlight reflects off the fabric, it looks subtly metallic even though it's not.
4. My necklace blends so well into the dress that it it goes from a very statement type of necklace into something a little less so.

After though - a fifth : the dress has pockets!!!!!!! WIN!

Unfortunately with all things that we love, there are things that we don't necessarily like either...

like the true length of this dress. At a fabulous height of 165cm, I am far too short to wear this as it is, and I had to hem off the end completely, which is such a shame really. Wish ASOS had made this in petite as well.

So how would you have worn the necklace? Or the dress?

Hope you like! XOXO







Dress: ASOS
Necklace: Zara

  32. stunning outfit, that dress is a great buy! and i have the opposite problem when buying clothes (they tend to end up too short, so on the positive side you can still hem yours!)
