This navy dress was originally purchased for our trip to CT last month BUT we didn’t end up having a snazzy night out. So sadly for the sassy little dress, back to Charlotte it went with no appearance made. Hanging in the closet is NOT what this dress was made for. Twirling, dancing, and enjoying summer days is what the dress was made for. So a couple of weeks ago, out came the dress. Literally, I could not stop twirling while wearing this dress. If I wasn’t twirling, I was dancing or shaking my hips to make it move. 

If you’re looking for the perfect dress for a more casual summer wedding, this is it!  The deep v neckline and the detailing steps up the otherwise causal dress. With the swing factor of the dress + the deep v neckline + the open detailing the dress is incredibly breathable aka perfect for hot summer days/nights.

Fun fact: the handbag in this post was my grandmothers. When I saw Julia Engel in this post, I was instantly reminded of a bag I use to wear in middle school. I immediately shot my mom a text and she knew exactly what bag I was talking about. She hunted around her house for a day or two and had it laying out for me the next time I came over. I also wore one of her bags in this post. She was one stylish lady!
