Last Monday was mine and Chauncey's seven year wedding anniversary. Before we left on our trip, I was looking for something special to wear when I came across this dress at Versona. I knew it would be perfect for our anniversary dinner in Charleston.
The first thing that caught my eye about the dress was the color. The pastel periwinkle shade is gorgeous! Then, when I strolled over to look at the dress, the actual design was stunning! The crochet lace overlay is stunning, and gives the dress a very detailed hemline. The underskirt stops at the knee, giving the midi length a peek-a-boo effect. The best part is the dress is only $60!
For accessories, I started with my iridescent jewelry from J. Crew Factory. I already had the earrings but picked up the necklace the night before specifically to wear with this dress. I also tossed on an iridescent cuff bracelet. Cuff bracelets are some of my favorite to wear because they fit my wrist better. It was a little harder for me to pick a handbag to go with this outfit, but I settled on this Lilly Pulitzer lobster clutch. I love the color contrast between the bold red and pastel blue, so it turned out to be a great statement piece!
The shoes were a DSW clearance find that I chose for their nude color and glam bow, but let me tell you--these are probably the most comfortable pair of heels I've ever owned! I know that I'll get lots of use out of them too.
Shoes: Kelly & Katie via DSW--found in-store for 30% off
Necklace: J. Crew Factory--best price I've seen is $24.50, so wait to purchase.
Earrings: J. Crew Factory (similar)
Despite the dinner debacle, Chauncey and I still had a fun anniversary celebration:)
