What To Wear: Teal and Chocolate

The moment I saw this gorgeous Secret Garden dress by Lirola I knew I had to use it for the inspiration for my new "What to Wear" feature.  To begin with, I simply love a-line dresses. They are flattering for just about any shape or figure.  Secondly, this color is so refreshing.  The dress has pleats on the skirt, darling little pockets, and gorgeous handmade flowers at shoulder and neckline. It can be made in your exact measurements too.

Secret Garden Dress, $165 from Lirola

Now that being said, the whole point of this new feature is to share accessories and jewelry to coordinate with the inspiration piece.  While there are so many possibilities, since we're still in the middle of winter I went with some chocolate brown accents and nature inspired jewelry that can easily carry over to Spring. 

Clockwise from top left to bottom left:
1. Felicity leather wedges (handmade!) from  Bali Elf, $150
2. Teal, mint, brown and white hairpins from coloureen, $16
3.  Pebbles mini hoop earrings from Valerie Tyler Designs, $20
4. Leather Women's Wallet from MatkaShop, $84
5.  Wood bracelet from valeriemiscellanea , $32

Do you have ideas for a future "What to Wear" post or you want to be featured?
