Welcome back, Style of a Gemini readers! I’ve been MIA lately because real life has taken over, leaving me very little time for posts. Since my last post in January, I’ve gotten engaged (!!), got a new job, performed in my dance studio’s largest show of the year, and started wedding planning! It’s been a lot of fun but hard work that left me little energy for creating content. But when I saw lime green starting to pop up everywhere as the color of the summer, I knew I had to come out of hibernation to share it with you all!

This color trend has been going popping up all over runways and instagram pages. I’ve seen it as lime green, slime green, neon green, or–my personal favorite–highlighter green. Highlighter green is the most aggressive version of the trend, but I think it’s safe to say bright green is definitely having its moment this season. I personally love how lime green looks against my skin, so it didn’t take much convincing for me. This Zara dress was an easy, low-effort way for me to try it.

If you’re not one for mixing bright colors, the great benefit of this green is that it speaks plenty for itself. You can pair it with shades of brown for a more earthy, relaxed vibe or with black for a sharper look. I paired my dress with this brown beaded shoulder bag and leopard heels. Leopard print works great as a neutral, and as you know from my last post, the animal print trend is still going strong. More than that, I’m most obsessed with this bag. Beaded bags just make me think of vacation. I picked this up one while thrifting for my Florida vacation.

Finally, I’m of the opinion that maxi dresses are losing their steam as the go-to dress for summer. Midi dresses feel a little more current to me. Contrary to some people’s belief, I think the hemline looks good on anyone! The only downside is that now I have no excuse not to shave my legs in the summer, but it’s a small price to pay. Midi dresses have slowly but surely become my warm weather go-to.
