While online shopping do you ever get instant heart eyes for a specific item? That’s what happened to me with this dress! It’s everything I love in a dress- the color black, floral design and crochet detailing. Funny story, as Mack was completing pilot training he had an award ceremony, for which, I wore a navy blue crochet dress. I will NEVER forget that dress as it was such a happy day. Now, whenever I see a crochet dress of any kind I immediately convince myself I need it for whatever special occasion may arise that I can wear it to. I associate all happy moments in life with the clothing item I was wearing that day… is this normal? Haha probably not but it’s how my mind (and memory) work!
This dress in particular is perfect for one of those evening summer weddings where the dress code isn’t exactly specified. You know that type? The invitation says the ceremony is at 4 p.m. on a Saturday with an outdoor reception in the middle of summer but fails to mention appropriate dress. I’ve noticed that even when the dress code is specified, there’s such a broad interpretation of wedding dress codes that it’s better to air on the side of caution. This dress speaks formal as it’s black (at least for me, I always think black looks elegant), casual enough to weather a summer night dancing and drinking champagne but most importantly is feminine! I love this dress too because although it has floral crochet detailing, it’s virtually a blank canvas making it ideal to accessorize how to you please. Shown above with a fun leopard clutch, statement blush earrings, wedges, and bright lips deems this look is perfect for any event where you don’t know what to wear.
I’ve mentioned that my cousin is getting married this summer and I am so excited! Although I am a bridesmaid and won’t have to worry about adhering to a specific dress code during the wedding, this dress is still getting packed because they’re a number of weekend events that will call for a dressed up look but in the heat of July. For a girl that always plans ahead, I am so happy to at least check one outfit off my packing list.
Wishing everyone a great weekend! Thank you so much for reading today!
