Pretty in…Purple?

First, I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of love following yesterday’s post! I was beyond touched with all of your kind words and encouragement, and so thankful that I was also able to touch some of you with my experience. But, enough of the yucky feelings talk- today’s post is all about a dress that makes me feel good!! You know, that one you can put on no matter how down you are and still feel like a million bucks?! It’s all about finding the colors, shape and fit that’s flattering on your body and most importantly, makes you feel confident.

My favorite trend for summer has by far been off the shoulder tops and dresses. It’s a similar problem to my 2014 romper craze and I just can’t get enough of it. There’s something so sexy about a showing a little shoulder skin and I instantly feel feminine and confident in this style. Add in the gorgeous lace and hip hugging in just the right places and you’ve got yourself the perfect dress for date night or GNO! Bonus: it’s on sale right now for HALF OFF, and if you’re not one for color, it also comes in black.

Speaking of color, the description says “corn flower blue” and it appeared to be a soft baby blue. Clearly that is not the case. I’m not going to lie, when I got it in the mail I was really disappointed that it was more of a purple. My elementary, middle & high school colors were purple and white, so I’ve successfully kept it out of my wardrobe ever since graduation. I mean, a girl can only wear bright purple for so long. But, the more I stared at this dress in my closet, the more the color grew on me, and now I’m just plain obsessed! Purple had been so far gone from my life for so long that I almost feel like I’m discovering a new color to wear! Besides, this is more of a periwinkle than a true purple, so I don’t think I’ll get mistaken for a First Baptist student anytime soon. (because other than that I totallyyy look like I could pass as a high schooler-right?!)
