a Shein Palm Leaf Maxi Dress and A DAY DOWNTOWN







Recently my office moved to the Flat Iron area of the city. This is one my favorite areas of Manhattan and I walk down this block everyday on my way to work. Last week after work I met up with Rowena of Rolala Loves to go to a event for Origins. I chose to wear this lovely palm leaf maxi dress from Shein. It is super comfortable and quite the head turner. Right? This pattern is also found on a number of other items so head to Shein.com to take a look.

I got so many compliments on this dress at work, and a number of my fellow employees asked me where I got it

I got so many compliments on this dress at work, and a number of my fellow employees asked me where I got it. I paired it these embroidered loafer mules from Steve Madden. The elephant detail is what caught my attention, I adored elephants as a child so I couldn’t pass these up when I saw them in the window. To complete the look I added this gold box clutch from Max & Enjoy. Isn’t it gorgeous? I like how it picks up the gold in the shoes and compliments the green in the dress. Such a chic bag, I will be taking this with me to Fashion Week on both sides of the pond!

    Definitely get all the compliments, the dress is so so gorgeous! Such a pretty print and fun contrast with white/green. Genius with the maxi style too as the print really gets its time in the spotlight. Hope you’re having a lovely week!! Xx
