Back to Blue.

Dress: Talbots {Same color dress here} // Shoes: Nine West // Sunglasses: H&M // Bracelets: {old} // Lips: Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss in Sensuel

     My blue dress obsession continues! I enjoyed styling this blue dress, and this one as well, back during the summer months here on the blog! But who says that my love for bright blue dresses has to end just because the seasons are changing?! 

     My mom got me this gorgeous Talbots dress  at the end of summer. Talbots often has fantastic sales at the end of each season, and while I can't remember exactly how much she found this one for, I know that it was quite a steal! I love the more conservative cut of this dress- it would make it perfect for any business casual type dress code, or a great dress to wear to church as well! Since the silhouette and bold color of this dress make such a statement, I decided not to wear very many accessories with it. I decided on a neutral lip color and my favorite nude pumps, and a couple coordinating bracelets, and then called it good! 

     How would you style a dress like this? Would you wear it very simply like I did, or try and dress it up more with fun accessories, hairstyles and make-up? 

    In other news, it's finally the start of sorority recruitment here at my school! My sorority has been practicing and preparing for almost a month! We have the rest of this week for last minute preparations, and then actual Formal Recruitment is this Friday and Saturday (I go to a school with a fairly small Greek system!). Bid Day is Sunday and I can't wait- be sure that you're following me on Instagram and Snapchat @miss_alk to keep up with all of the fun!
