I’ve been wearing these gold platform sandals from Veronica Beard on repeat lately and it’s easy to see why!

GREEN METALLIC DRESS:

The last of 7 resort wear looks for 2023 features this GORGEOUS green metallic dress from Revolve. I love the ruching, the slit up the front, and the sexy deep v-neck. If you’re not comfortable showing that much skin you could always put a nude cami underneath to give a bit more coverage. I recommend using fashion tape on the thigh slit as well so it doesn’t end up accidentally coming open. I’m wearing an XS in this gorgeous dress that would be perfect as a spring or summer wedding guest dress as well!
