baby blues

Happy Summer AKA Wedding Season. I love weddings as they are a wonderful excuse to party with family & catch up with friends, & to get a pretty new dress too of course! When I saw this ruffled beauty, I simply couldn't help myself & can't wait to put it to the twirling test on the dance floor at our next event.

This is my first dress with this halter style, & while I was afraid it would look wonky on my shoulders, I actually find the cut to be very flattering. One thing to note about the fit of this dress, I am typically in between a Small & an Extra Small, but ordered this in a Small, & it is as tight as I would want it to be in my bust/around my neck. It works for sure, but if I wanted to go with a loose fit, I would have certainly gone back for the Medium. It does come in 5 gorgeous colors & if you order the coral one ("red saucy" - best color name ever), you have to tag me on social media, because I know it is going to be a showstopper.

Also on my must have list for wedding season is a go-with-everything clutch & this one from Gigi New York is perfection. It has a removable strap, so it is super versatile for those destination wedding weekends where you are exploring by day & then dancing the night away. My new obsession is traveling with the least amount of items possible (anyone who has traveled with me before is laughing, because that has not always been the case) & these do it all wonder pieces are what has been making it all possible.

What are you wedding guest must haves?

dress: Nordstrom halter ruffle dress (available in 5 gorgeous colors, and if you are stuck between sizes, go a size up - I got a size Small and it was just a tad tight)
