What I Wore: The Chosen Dress

Happy Monday, friends.

I hope that you all had a great weekend. I definitely had a better weekend after my tough week. Thank you so much for your sweet comments and tweets. I will be responding today or tomorrow! Life is not always easy breezy but I am learning how to focus on the positive and not be led by my emotions. :)

I mentioned that I was headed to a wedding on Friday evening. The wedding was gorgeous and I had the BEST time ever. Seriously, it was so nice to let loose, have a few drinks and dance it out with my life long girlfriends. PLUS, it always puts me in a good mood to celebrate true love!

If you follow me on Instagram then you already know that I chose the blue dress for my wedding attire. I want to tell you why! While the fit flare dress is adorable, I felt like it was almost too much on the casual side. Yes I could dress it up but the fabrication and the styling just wasn't 'dressy' enough for what I was looking for. The BCBG dress looks a little more sophisticated, the color is just incredible and I loved the draping. I feel like this dress was better suited for my body type, showcasing my best features. This dress is on the shorter side which shows off my legs which is one of my better assets. It shows very a small amount of cleavage but covers the shoulders which keeps the top mostly covered up. I love that there are two extra pieces that drape in an "X" across the body. The "X" crosses at my smallest point creating the illusion that I have a waist (being an apple shape means that I need to wear clothing that gives me a waist). I wore a nude heel that makes my legs look longer than they are. I kept my jewlery very simple. I also created a deep side part, waves and pulled back one side of my hair to change up my look a little. I think it all came together well.

What do you think?
