Let’s face it… as a teacher by day and working from home as a blogger at night, I’m mostly in either khaki pants (gross, I know) or yoga pants — or just pjs if I’m feeling really lazy! Haha. There’s also the fact that I work with a t-shirt company and pretty much live in those on a daily basis as well.
So the point is, I don’t have too many reasons to get all dressed up… unless it’s a wedding or special occasion.
So in comes this dress —
It’s perfect for wedding season or any other occasion you might need to get a little dressed up for this summer (cocktail parties, bridal brunches, showers, etc.). But it can just as easily be dressed down too! I loved the extra fabric detail around the shoulders — making it not just your typical dress. Plus, I love how the pop of blue is just a little more exciting than a little black dress — especially for summer.
And, snazzin’ it up with a little Loren Hope jewelry FTW! With the extra details around the dress, you can keep it simple with the jewelry and accessories. Then, pair it with a neutral color simple heel.
This whole look came from Southern Sophisticate, located right here in Baton Rouge. You can read ALL about their story as a benevolent boutique — whose main mission is to give back — in this post. Plus, I’ve shared two other looks in that post!
