Style Request - Kelly Green Reed Shirtdress

Hi everyone!

Hope you've all been well. Earlier this week, I got a styling request from Tiny Cricket for the Reed Shirtdress in the kelly green color.  This dress is actually really easy to wear, and pairs well with neutrals.  They're a calming influence on all that vivid green.  The two looks are pretty similar, but one feels dressier to me, because of the shoe (heel vs. flat) than the other.  In warm weather, I'll probably go without the toppers (coat or cardigan).

Coat: Burberry Trench, Nordstrom (less wallet-reaming, here and here)
Necklace: Kate Spade necklace, Nordstrom
Dress: Reed Shirtdress in kelly green, Anthropologie (sold out online, but still available in some stores)
Handbag: Sorial "Fortune Cookie" ruffle-flap hobo, Nordstrom
Shoe: Festa Milano "Sienna" Sandal, Nordstrom
Belt: Leaps and Bounds belt in neutral, Anthropologie (sold out online, but still available in some stores)

I just love the pop of yellow in the shoe against this green!  So fun:


Necklace: Stein & Blye Bauble necklace, Nordstrom
Dress: Reed Shirtdress in kelly green, Anthropologie (sold out online, but still available in some stores)
Sweater: Susina Half-ruffle cardigan, Nordstrom
Handbag: Alfresco bag, Anthropologie
Shoe: Born "Lovely" Flat, Nordstrom
Belt: Looping Lanes belt, Anthropologie

For the winter, I'd wear some cute tights (black, solid or patterned, or gray patterned - maybe even brown patterned) and pair with knee-high brown boots and a 3/4 length coat on top. Of course, I live in San Diego, where temperatures never fall to freezing or below.  I think you could also layer a thin tissue-turtleneck underneath this to add warmth for cooler weather, again in a neutral for ease.

Hope that helps!

  2. You're welcome - and I love that Sorial bag too! I actually own it, and it's something that Kelly (my Nordstrom personal stylist - have you read the interviews with her?) found for me. I was over the moon, because it was pretty much exactly what I was looking for, and it didn't cost a million dollars - in fact, the price-point falls just below $200, which is really great for such a nice, leather handbag! It's a good size (I can fit my giant wallet and a bunch of baby-stuff in it) but doesn't look huge, has nice hardware details, still manages to be light (nothing worse than a bag that starts off heavy and gets heavier), and the leather is buttery soft. Oh, and it comes with a long strap too, so you can use it as a shoulder bag (which is what I do) or a cross-body. I highly recommend it, if you're in the market for a bag.
