the perfect daytime date dress

ok, so my shopping freeze is over (I lasted a full 3 months!). and then i dove back into shopbop with a vengeance and picked up this dress, the sandals and the watch (each under $100).  BAM!  and then i made lou take me out for some gazpacho at a local cafe i love.  BOOM!  moral of the story: neon accessories are an amazing way to play with the trend whilst spicing up some simple stripes. and gazpacho is really freaking tasty. {recipe post coming soon}  also, if you wear something on a date that hugs your curves you are going to make the man sitting across from you very, very happy but your stomach muscles may or may not get sore from sucking it in. and you probably won’t be up for dessert. you have been warned. 

dress: free people, shoes: dolce vita, watch: la mer, bag: chloe (similar), necklace: gorjana (old), earrings: tory burch (old),
