My Love Affair With Turquoise

When summer rolls around, I naturally gravitate towards turquoise. From nails to jewelry to makeup to dresses, something (not all) is gonna be turquoise. As a sun addict (yes, mom I'm wearing sunscreen), my newly bronzed skin tone just makes this color pop! Maybe I love the color so much because it reminds me of the inviting ocean water in the tropics? Who knows.

In this look, I'm sporting a dress I've had for over a decade. Yes, a flipping decade! This floral printed halter dress is a curve-hugger for sure! I'm loving the subtle print too. I paired a strappy neutral wedge for mega height and texture and shot for a simpler tone with pearl jewelry. To top it off, a messy curly bun because to be completely honest, I didn't feel like putting any effort in perfecting my hair being that it was hot as f***.

  1. gorgeous! I love turquoise in the summer too, there was a turqoise-seafoamey green color in Sabrina's wedding, and all our dresses were a version of this color. Love it, and you look beautiful as always! <3

  2. Woah beautiful dress - turquoise is awesome! 10 years aint bad. I have a 10 year old dress that I whip out for special occasions - it's a cool material so its great for summer days.
    Glad you showed the shoes, they're divine.
