There is nothing more romantic than a whole lotta lace… but you know what isn’t romantic?! The Florida humidity! Folks my hair was just not loving the heat so up it went! (Although I’m kind of digging’ this fun little updo that came out of it)!

Anywho… back to this lovely dress! I got this gem on sale for $20 at the Loft earlier this year- it was the last in stock (in my world that means #meanttobe). I love this simple and sophisticated look for special events- it’s just classy as can be! What is your go-to look for special events?

Dress: Loft (Love it in these colors) // Shoes: Payless (similar) // Headband: Francesca’s (love this) // Watch: Victoria Wieck // Bracelet: Victoria Wieck // Necklace: Bellezza (similar)
