It is a beautiful yet windy Saturday here in Virginia. I just loved how the wind was whipping my dress around as I was trying to take pictures the other day. I know that this is not your typical Saturday outfit but occasionally you have to shake things up a little. Lol! I am starting to do some planning as to what I need to pack to go on my trip to Cancun and I wondered if I would need a dressier dress on the trip. When I first opened this dress and took it out of the package I was not sure that I was going to like it. It looked like a nightgown to me at first. Lol! Don’t tell me that your nightgowns don’t look like this. Hahaha! I stuffed it back in the packaging and thought that I would try it on later when I got home from work. I am partial to blue and cobalt blue especially. This was a case of don’t judge a horse by its color because I ended up loving the effect once I tried the dress on. This maxi dress is by Felicity & Coco and it was in my recent Trunk Club shipment. I am loving my Trunk Club shipments and as my stylist gets used to my style and as I get used to telling her exactly what I like and dislike, my shipments are getting better and better. I asked my stylist to send me dresses for the most part in this shipment. So many of you have mentioned weddings and events that I wanted to try and show some summer dresses that might be what you are looking for. Plus, I wanted some to take with me to Cancun in the coming weeks. If you like this dress but you don’t want this bright of a blue then the dress also comes in black.

But, I was looking around on their website as was surprised that there were a couple more earrings that were also in Cobalt. There was one called the Fern, the Aila, and the Anika, and all were sold out except for the Anika. Evidently, cobalt blue must be really popular. The art deco cuff is a piece of my vintage jewelry. I bought this at a vintage fashion show and I loved how it had a geometric shape also. Can you believe that I already had these cobalt blue pumps that matched the dress perfectly??? These shoes are actually several years old and I bought them from Old Navy. I love having a few pairs of shoes that are not your typical black, brown, or navy. Every once in a while you need to have some “pretty” shoes. You know what I mean, the ones that make you feel cute and sassy!
You can’t see it very well because I don’t have any light shining behind me but there is a sheer insert in the dress right below my hand. It is about 3-4 inches wide and it really gives the dress a unique detail. The dress is partially lined, it stops before the insert line. This is a slip-on style dress so there are no zippers or buttons to fuss with. Lol! I am 5’6″ tall and I have on the high heel pumps but this dress was still touching the ground. The website says that it is 60″ in length but it seems even longer. It is 100% polyester and hand-washable.If you didn’t read my blog post yesterday then go here and see how to enter for a sunless tanner that I will be giving away on Monday.
