White Lace Shift Dress..

Wednesday, April 30, 2014






Dress, Forever 21 (I think its old) (similar here & here) | Wedges, Tory Burch (flat version) (similar style:$60) | Bag, GiGi New York c/o | Necklace, Kendra Scott c/o, Love Always Couture c/o | Rings, Gorjana c/o, similar turquoise | Sunglasses, Ray-Ban | Watch, Michele | Bracelets, Love Stylize c/o, J.Crew (similar), Mindy Mae's Market c/o | Earrings, Nadri | Lips, Happy Go Lucky | Hair, 2 wefts of Bellami (emily5 for $5 off!) | Photography: Abby from District Dress Up

Effortless & Elegant... that's how I feel about shift dresses with lace overlays. The lace is an accessory in and of itself so very minimal is needed.  I wore this to a brunch in Dallas that took place at a ranch. I felt like it had the southern appeal that I needed with the touches of turquoise... if I only I had taken my cowboy boots! :) 

So, I spent most of yesterday in the airport... not my favorite way to spend the day but I was thinking about how in one month from now John & I will be settling down for good. No more packing up and moving... agh! Oh, not to mention, no more blog posts from couches/beds/hotels/etc. - I will have a desk! lol, It's the little things in life... liking giving a Type A woman a desk!!

  23. Great look! I always see the cutest outfits styled from Forever 21 and I go in there and find nothing..such a frustrating store! Anyways, I love the dress and bag, and I want those wedges so badly! Maybe I can justify it as an I survived another semester of PT school present :)
