Recently, I sported the following outfit to work, so, these pictures were taken at a studio, which will help explain the background! Ha!=
Anywho, as many of you probably know, tribal prints are very in this season, and quite honestly I am not a huge fan of all of them, but I liked this dress, especially the cut, and colors it came in!
Not to mention the price was super affordable pass up, which is also why I purchased it in an aqua blue and sunset orange. Below is a closer look and complete price breakdown of each and every item!


Blue Tribal Print Maxi Dress
Forever 21 - $24.80 (bought it in a sunset orange too)

Long White Layering Tank
Nordstrom Rack - $7.99

Silver Metallic Flip Flops
Marshall's - $12.99

Long Silver Beaded Necklace
Forever 21 - $5.80

Forever 21 - $4.80 (wearing 5 of set of 20)

Chunky Silver & Gray Faux Stone Ring
Charlotte Russe - $4.00

Silver Metallic Scarf
Forever 21 - $6.80

White Tote Bag

If you happen to like the dress, I bought it very recently at Forever 21, so, if you go quickly yours might still have them! Unfortunately, I haven't seen this exact one online yet, but you can always keep checking in case they add it, and they do the same dress in a different print online.
On a side note...
About 2 weeks ago, I started doing pilates again 5-7 days a week and am not only loving it, but feeling it too, which is the best! A couple years ago I tried it for the first time and enjoyed it far more than I expected since yoga wasn't really for me, but then dropped it.
However, the thing I noticed most was the longer, leaner look, or at least feel, and that my flexibility increased a lot! Plus, it just feels good to be healthy and I would love to tone up a bit, especially now that I'm getting older, for not only my wedding, but myself!
Do any of you do pilates or have any work out routines you enjoy and see working? If so, please share, I would love to hear about it and what works for you! :)
I hope your week is off to a great start so far and I'll be back on Wednesday for a really wonderful, touching and inspirational wedding video! Now, I'm off to do pilates!
