Lady in White

8/2/17



Hi Friends! I'm back after a long hiatus! It's been a crazy, crazy whirlwind the last few months. I really, really hope to get back to posting regularly. I'm also excited to be working with a few brands that I love, so keep an eye out for some fun posts! 



This dress has two things I love and one thing I'm afraid to wear: I love the beautiful, white color and I love the lace pattern. The thing I'm afraid of: midi dresses! Midi dresses are dresses that fall just below the knee. For short girls like me, it's a hard look to pull off. On taller girls, it's beautiful!  Midi dresses are perfect for the office though. They're conservative and stylish. I probably wouldn't have bought this dress if it wasn't on super sale for like literally $4 at Forever 21. I'm glad I bought it though. I love the way it looks! Since the dress is sleeveless, I added a white blazer and matching white sandals. I did a bright red lip, added a cute pair of earrings, and put my hair in a simple ponytail. 







How should you style a midi dress or skirt? Any way you want! Literally. I chose to wear mine with flat sandals, but this dress would look just as cute in heels or wedges. Make sure you select the right length! The dress shouldn't be at that awkward too-long-to-be-a-mini-skirt or too-short-to-be-a-maxi-skirt stage. Accentuate your waist! I did this with a cropped blazer, but you can also add a belt. Try and also wear the same or similar colors to create a monochromatic look. If you're petite like me, pick a midi dress that doesn't have a crazy pattern - this can make you look shorter than you are! 

So, a LOT has been going on since my last post in May: I went to Japan (it was amazing, and there's a ton of posts on my Instagram if you'd like to see!), I went to California (again, ha!), and my bridesmaids threw me an amazing bachlorette party (pictures of that too on Instagram!). I have a ton of exciting events coming up like my bridal shower and of course, my WEDDING which is just 3 short months away! It's surreal.

Have a great week :)
