Yes, I realize it’s still February, but every year– without fail— I forget to wear enough green to completely eliminate myself from the candidate pool of possible pinchees. My friends can vouch for this; I don’t like being touched at all, so the painful act of pinching is equivalent to grueling physical torture, similar to tickling. Of course, this aversion of mine provides even more of an incentive for people to unjustifiably target me (rude), so this year I’m overcompensating with a pretty 100% St. Patty’s Day-approved Double Cross green dress from The Mint Julep Boutique, which, to put it plainly, is everything.Not only is it the most gorgeous shade of forest green, but the cut and design are incredibly flattering for any and all body types.
Unfortunately, I’m apparently not the only woman to find this dress essential to my winter wardrobe, so it sold out on The Mint Julep’s website within a few days. However, it’s now available through SheIn for just $25! As for styling suggestions, it looks absolutely fabulous with tall brown boots, like this pair from Nine West, with metallic strappy wedges, and even with heels as a cute holiday work outfit (if it’s not too short on you). Since we only have so many more days of less-than-scorching weather here in Florida, I’ve been consistently wearing my double cross green dress with brown heeled riding boots, my go-to chestnut Tory Burch Robinson dome satchel, and gold tortoise accessories. Also, Starbucks– but I feel like that’s a given. Head to the bottom of this post for full outfit details!
