This past weekend was a busy one! My daughter had her 5th birthday party (a week early) with all of her friends which was a success!! Phew! Always a lot of planning and organizing to make sure everything runs smoothly. Got to love the weekends, a time for fun and special events.
Although it isn’t what I would wear to a child’s birthday party (could you imagine white with 5 year olds sticky hands? ahhh), I found the perfect dress for a garden or cocktail party that’s elegant and stylish. I haven’t owned a lot of white dresses in the past but I think they are so pretty and such a summer must-have. To keep with my on-going love of the off the shoulder trend, I found this beautiful lace dress at Forever 21 (in stores). Don’t you just love lace? It adds that feminine, “I feel so pretty” quality to any outfit. The price point is amazing (under $40) so really it’s a steal! I love the little lace sleeves they make the dress unique compared to the standard strapless style.
I paired it with my nude sandals – they are delicate and simple and they elongate my legs (what I always strive for!).
When I’m dressing up I usually need to add some sparkle. As my daughter would say, you must be sparkly at all times. My bling earrings are also from Forever 21 and super affordable. Costume jewelry is fabulous because you can keep up with the latest trend without breaking the bank.
Because it was sunny out I wore my trusty aviators to avoid squinty eyes – that’s never a good look lol..
I’m ready for a summer party are you? Do you have a favorite lace dress you want to share?
