A Walk on the Wild Side + Blue Suede Shoes

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

Hello Friends!

Are you ready to review an exciting outfit together? I have a 'wild side' inspired look to share with all of you. I absolutely love the little bursts of color that are everywhere this Spring. You can add a splash of 'bright' to almost any outfit to make it bold & daring. That's what we're going to do today.  

I was inspired by this 'Fashion Bulletin' in the latest issue of Allure:

Today I've taken a black & tan wild inspired dress and paired it with some electric blue faux suede shoes. The result was surprisingly refreshing!

Dress $22 - Dots

And the shoes....

Shoes - Target
Speaking of shoes- don't you just love canvas flats?! As summer is fast approaching I can feel the 'canvas itch' starting to nag at me every time I waltz into a shoe store. WELL- before you go out and spend more than you want to on a pair of Keds or some other brand, try Forever 21. I found these darling little beige charmers for only $6.00! They are in stores now (in a variety of colors) so get them while they're hot. :) You can thank me later. 

Thank you so much for reading & following the Bee's Knees! I love & appreciate each of you. I leave you tonight with a picture of my sister and I last summer @ Lake Michigan. I stumbled upon this today and it gave me a glimpse into the beauty of Michigan summers once again. Longing for this... 


  1. Wow!!!! You look SOOOO amazing in that dress!!! Love the shoes too!!! You and your sister look so beautiful. :) A trip to Lake Michigan this summer is surely a must for us girls!!! <3 Love you sweetie, and keep blogging! You are so talented!!! :)

  2. Very cool. You'll get a kick out of this: the ad to the right on my screen is an ad for canvase Tom's. (Kinda the oppposite price spectrum from your Forever 21 find!) LOL! Great job, Melissa! Looking forward to seeing Michigan this summer, even if it is only for a weekend!

  3. That is hilarious! :) Thanks for the kind words Tricia.

  4. LOVE LOVE LOVE the dress and shoes! :)


I love your comments! Leave me some.
