Asymmetrical hems and necklines come and go, but I’ve always been a fan.  This year is no exception, and I’m going to stock up on all things asymmetric while the going is good! Here’s the newest addition…

This Forever 21 dress has been in my recent rotation for Spring dresses.  I love the cobalt color and unique slanted hem.  {I got the shorter HiLo version for my cousin Iris!} Is it bad if I’ve worn it every week since I got it?  
Dresses are my go-to item for any occasion.  You just have to add heels and some accessories and voila!  You are good to go!  I had to go into work for a short period unexpectedly, so I threw on the jacket.  {NOTE: I would NOT wear these shoes to be seen on the hospital floor!  I was just in the workroom in the pharmacy.}

JACKET :: Forever 21 {similar}
TOP (under) :: ?? {similar}
WEDGES :: Steve Madden
BRACELET :: Nordstrom {similar pair from ASOS}
EARRINGS :: Anthropologie {similar}
SUNGLASSES :: Karen Walker {and in ivory HERE}

And I got a fun Christmas present from my friend S* that I JUST started using!  {I KNOW it’s April!}  It’s a book of 101 Positive Sticky Notes to Start the Day!  I’ll share them with you so we can be positive together!

    • Samantha says:

      Thanks TFE! I’m sorry that you had to give it away. The dress does fit a little strange – the front is VERY LOW which is why I have to wear a tank or tube top under! That person you gave it to is really lucky!

  14. YOUR HAIR!!!!!! It is so pretty in these pics – I wish I had your length and waves!

  15. Stacey says:

    I love blue on you Sam!! I love the leopard paired with this dress!


  16. MissA* says:

  18. cryskay says:

    i have been eyeing those sunglasses for quite some time. they look absolutely perfect on you! xx

  19. Niki says:

    Very cute!! I just bought an orange asymmetrical tank from Asos where the back grazes the floor. Of course I had to get some leather leggings for the look.

  20. I like assymetrical hemlines, it elongates the legs! and your bib necklace is so pretty!


  21. Love this – very pretty! You have the sheer going there too. I’m surprised this dress is from Forever 21 – good find!
