The Dress, Pt. 2

tildon ruched dressToday’s post is going to be pretty short and sweet, but I told you you’d be seeing this dress again! It’s just that good. We all know that once you find something you love, everything else in your closet seems to take a backseat!tildon ruched dress 1I mentioned before that tighter clothing is a bit outside of my comfort zone, but wearing this dress actually makes me feel really good! There’s just something about it that makes me want to wear it over and over again… and I have! I styled it pretty casual in this post, but you see it can be dressed up, too – maybe for date night or a special event that you’re going to. In fact, I actually wore this exact look (earrings, shoes, and all!) last weekend on a boat ride for a big family function that I attended with my family!date night dress 5I’ve been getting so many compliments, that I’ve even considered purchasing black for an even sleeker look! Because it’s such a versatile dress, I’m already thinking of ways to style it for the rest of summer, and even into fall!leith dressjeweled earringsSpeaking of which… am I the only one who thinks this has been one the fastest summers yet? I feel like I just completed all of my finals, and now I feel like I’m about to jump right back into school! Yes, there’s plenty of weeks left, but I guess since I’ve been pretty busy time has just been passing by and I haven’t done nearly half of the things I had hoped to. tildon ruched dress 3Either way, I’m going to try to enjoy what’s left of it and do so in cute clothes 😉
