Sequins and Sea Breezes: Fun in Floral

Fun in Floral

8/07/2014

If you happen to follow me on Instagram you probably saw me wearing this dress during my margarita outing this weekend however I was looking a bit like a hot mess (literally) in that picture since the A/C was out at the restaurant. I did manage to get these pictures in before going out to dinner so you can see this gorgeous dress in all it's glory before I got all sweaty.


I found this dress at Forever21 and the line for the dressing room was out the door, I'm not even kidding. So instead of trying it on first I just bought it and hoped for the best. That's what you get for shopping during tax free weekend I guess! When I got home I figured the dress was going to be hit or miss so I threw it on and wasn't overly happy with the shape (or lack there of) of the dress so I decided to try it with a belt. The belt completely transformed the dress and suddenly I loved it! Isn't it amazing how something as small as an accessory can really transform a look?! I love that the floral print on this dress is pretty neutral so it can be carried over into fall too!

  3. Such a great dress - you can't even tell that the belt wasn't originally part of it!! I love that you're not wearing chunky heels with it either - totally makes the dress more feminine and dainty!
