Neutral in Summer

My previous blog post (see here) featured one example of how to layer it up during the Summer season. Today’s look features a different variation of what I affectionately think of as, ‘Summer Layers’. Truly, lightweight layers can be most practical during the Summer months, and stylish!
I styled this neutral look for the Lovesick Launch & VIP Blogger Event that I attended last week. If you follow me on Instagram & Twitter you may have caught a glimpse of it already ;) Nonetheless, I wanted to be sure to share this look here on the blog too,as I know for a fact that a number of my readers do not use social media.
I scored this edgy tulle dress from Zara recently (new collection), and I tell you it really was love at first sight! I had absolutely no reservations (often I have to talk myself into or out of making a purchase) whatsoever about making buying it- and for me that is ALWAYS a GREAT sign :)
I opted to pair it with black because it just seemed to add to the edge factor that I was after; I topped it off with this fab hat that I scored a few months ago on vacation. Now, let’s talk about this double banded rhinestone cluster necklace!!! Would you believe that I just happened up on it in Express?! 
That’s right---> Express! I haven’t been in there for ages, however I was on the hunt for blush colored separates and I wandered on in. Of course, I found very little to nothing in my size (they give plus size Babes NO LOVE) – but I did score at the jewelry rack! {{Insert happy dance emoji}} This necklace was exactly the bold statement that I needed for my look, so I scooped it up and happily exited :)
P.S. A special 'Thank you' to Sheena of IAmSheGlobal for snaping these photos for me!
