Sequins and Sea Breezes: Cobalt Blue Maxi

Cobalt Blue Maxi

4/12/2017


Happy Wednesday loves! Hope everyone is having a fantastic week so far! I don't get to get dressed up very often but I love getting to put on a gown, and get fancy every once in awhile, I mean, doesn't every girl? Luckily once a year I get to attend a gala through my work and entertain my need to play dress up. Similar to last year, I waited until almost the last possible second to find a dress and luckily Lulu's came through for me again! Only this year I did manage to get it with enough time to get it altered so I wasn't tripping all night!
Blue is my favorite color so when I saw this dress I knew instantly it was perfect for the gala.
I was definitely a bit worried that the material of the dress would wrinkle badly sitting in the car on the ride there, especially since the location of the gala was about 45 minutes away from my house. Luckily it didn't wrinkle too badly but as you can see from the pictures, it definitely did wrinkle a bit but I didn't think it was too bad.  I was definitely impressed with how comfortable this dress was. The material was soft and flowy and the halter neckline made it so I didn't have to worry about tugging at the top all night. It was definitely the perfect dress to dance the night away, which I did! For those of you who know me personally, you know I'm not really a fan of staying out late, I prefer to be home and in my pajamas by like 8 pm but this was the one night that I stayed out way past my bedtime. I'm surprised I didn't turn into a pumpkin!

  27. Gorgeous color dress and neckline. I love the high slit to make it airy since maxis can get restricting especially in the heat. Such a pretty evening/formal dress and it goes perfect with the neutral heels and clutch!
