Sequins and Sea Breezes: Peek-a-boo Crochet

Peek-a-boo Crochet

4/14/2014


Ok, so the lighting isn't the absolute greatest on some of these but that's my fault. The ONLY way I can take pictures in the sun without sunglasses is if I'm in the shade and of course the shade casts shadows so...it's really a no win situation for me! At least now you know why I almost always have sunglasses on! I found this dress at Nordstrom Rack and was pretty hesitant about it at first. I love the crochet and the peek-a-boo neon coral but I'm usually not one for super tight, form fitting dresses. I decided to give it a try any way and ended up liking it... but in a size larger than I normally wear. You can see how short and tight it is on me from these pictures, now just imagine it even smaller. No thank you! After some deliberation I decided it'd be a great Key West dress so I went ahead and got it and I'm definitely not disappointed. I'm seriously obsessed with crochet lately and the white and neon coral in this dress really make you look tan which is never a bad thing for me! I definitely also love how casual it is, I love a good dress that can be worn with sandals. Living in Florida sandals are definitely a must have staple! Hope everyone had an amazing weekend!
