Red & Pink Petal Dress

Dress (sold out, similar here) | Shoes (available in-store, similar here & here) | Clutch (similar here) | Bangles | Earrings 

If you follow me on Instagram you may recognize this dress from the iWRTIE Bingos & Bubbles Bash that I was the decoration co-chair for in April. I got so many comments on it, that I figured I should post it. Plus, I felt like the picture/lighting didn't quite do it justice, especially the cute cut-outs. 

With summer wedding season upon us, I think this look would be perfect for daytime or evening - just switch up the shoes and accessories accordingly! Unfortunately this exact dress is sold out (I was lucky enough to snag it on sale), but I found two similar styles here and here! Both are available in all sizes! 

I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend, and thank you to those who served our country bravely.

Fiery Red Cape Dress

Dress (similar style here, here & here) | Shoes | Clutch | Necklace (similar style) | Cuff (similar style) | Earrings | Sunglasses (similar style)

With Memorial Day this weekend, it felt only right to kick start the week with a gorgeous red dress! 

What is it about the color red that always makes a bold statement and is everlastingly eye catching? This dress is everything and then some that you could want out of a cocktail dress. Perfect for a night on the town, or a summer wedding, it can be worn several different ways. Although it's a simple silhouette, the draped cape adds intrigue but doesn't require you to be a style expert - it can be worn with nearly anything and accessorized with any color. 

I felt "oh so 70's chic" in this look, and wanted to up the ante with this oversized statement necklace. I bought this necklace for my mom  a few years ago for her birthday, but ended up keeping it. #sorrynotsorry! Can you believe that it's made out of wood and covered in gold leaf? Meaning it's lightweight, but still packs a punch. I've tracked down two similar styles here and here

Pretty Pink Gingham Dress

Dress | Wedges (similar style) | Bag | Earrings | Rhinestone Cuff | Stud Cuff | Hermes Bracelet (similar style) | Sunglasses 

There's nothing that screams summer more than gingham print, and this pink A-line dress takes summer style to the next level. The bow straps are detachable, which is perfect for making the dress go the extra mile. Plus, as you can see, it has pockets! I think all that's missing is a picnic and a bouquet of flowers!

Play up the "weekend vibe" by pairing it with a cute box bag (under $25) like I did, or dress it up with some open toe heels and a colorful clutch. This dress runs TTS and also comes in navy
