It's a jungle out there!

Hi lovelies!! Happy Monday, hope your week is off to a good start. This weekend I spent the majority of my time helping my brother prepare for his move and seeing his show Cabaret. The show was good - really provocative and depressing - but performed well. The woman who played Sally was fantastic! It also rained on Saturday :] Super exciting for Illinois. It has been ages. Anywho...the weekend flew by. I hope you enjoyed yours!

Today I have a fun summer outfit to share with you. Last week I was jumping for joy when I received this Jungle Book Dress in the mail from Sugarlips Apparel. Fun, isn't it? As soon as I saw the cute print and fun chain back detailing I knew I wanted had to add it to my wardrobe. I also love how light weight the dress is - perfect for this 90+ degree heat! The next day I had my awesome and incredibly wonderful boyfriend Brian take me out on a hot date wearing this number (not without taking some blog photos first of course) haha - did I mention he is a sweetheart?

I had too much fun dressing this look up and down with accessories and shoes (you can check out more on my Flickr). This dress is perfect for a hot date or shopping around town on a hot summer day. I thought it was also only fitting to take photos of this look in a jungle-esque setting - aka, Brian's mother's garden/koi pond.

With my newly brightened red hair I think it is only necessary that I incorporate more green in to my wardrobe ;]
