Happy Hump Day! Keep on chugging because we are halfway through the week!
I have had my eye on this dress and finally bit the bullet and bought it during the Shopbop Friends and Family sale. I am absolutely smitten with the cobalt blue color and the embroidery detail is stunning. I also love that the embroidery continues onto the back of the dress so it gives it just that little extra flair. Speaking of flare, the sleeves have the perfect amount of flare with out being over bearing and give the dress just one more unique detail. A shift style dress can sometimes just end up looking baggy and not put together, but this dress fits more through the bust and then flares out. I can’t help of thinking of wearing this dress for Cinco de Mayo – always thinking about holidays and of course Mexican food! This dress will be perfect for the hot Texas summer since the fabric breathes and the material isn’t clinging to your body. No more worrying about having sweat marks…. which is a legit concern for me because #sweaty. No shame here!
I kept my shoes and accessories pretty neutral for this outfit since the dress already has so much going on. I did add a little more pop of color with my clutch. My love for Urban Expressions continues and this clutch perfect to go from day to night. It has also has a dainty chain so you can wear the bag with a strap or wear it alone as a clutch. The snakeskin material gives this clutch texture and makes it look way more expensive then it actually is. I love how affordable all of Urban Expressions bags are and you can even get 25% off my with code UE25C62PD. That makes this bag under $50, which is a total steal!
