Happy Wednesday loves! I feel like it’s been a hundred years since I’ve shared an outfit post on the blog and trust me guys when I tell you it’s not because I haven’t wanted to. Quite literally, Virginia weather hardly ever cooperates from November until March, but alas pretty weather is here and fingers crossed it’s here to stay!

Outfit Details: Dress, Heels, Necklace (c/o Happiness Boutique)

I’m excited to share with you today this gorgeous black shift dress that features bright florals perfect for spring and summer! When I first picked up this dress in the store, I almost thought the flowers were butterflies, and ya’ll already know my love for those! The material is so lightweight and I love the bell sleeve detail that adds some character to a fairly simple dress shape. I paired it with some black pump stilettos and to complete the look I added in a gorgeous statement necklace from Happiness Boutique.

In case you’re not familiar, Happiness Boutique is an international online boutique that sells the most beautiful, affordable jewelry pieces that fits every style out there. Whether you like colorful and bold jewelry or more simplistic pieces, they have it all. I personally adore their statement necklaces and earrings, as I’m all about the elegant look!

I’m wearing the Gala Statement Necklace in Pastel Blue, and I feel like it literally bringsΒ the entire look together. I just love the pastel colors, the girly detailing, and although it is a “statement” necklace, I feel like it is very elegant and dainty looking with all of the pretty crystals and jewels.

Also can we talk about how gorgeous the floral print on this dress is?! The bright yellow and pink florals really contrast well against the black dress and I love that it is a great multi-occasion piece! Would be fun for date night yet it is still appropriate for the office and a work event.

In case you’re in the market for some jewelry, I’ve teamed up with Happiness Boutique to offer my readers an exclusive discount on all purchases over $20! Simply use code kindlyunspokenΒ upon checkout to save 10% off! Oh and did I mention they offer an awesome rewards program and free shipping on every order?

    This dress is so gorgeous! I like that the top of the dress isn’t as busy as the bottom, so it lets your statement necklace really stand out.
    I get so nervous when picking out statement necklaces, so I usually shy away from them but I think they are so gorgeous! I need to face my fear and start wearing them, haha.

    • They really are so pretty, so I encourage you to try one out! They can literally make jeans and a t-shirt look chic too lol.
