One Maxi Dress Two Ways: Summer Wedding Look.

      I'm so excited to be sharing a second look today with this beautiful watercolor maxi dress! I shared a more casual look with it in last Monday's blog post.

      Good morning friends! I'm keeping today's post short and sweet, as I'm busy all day working at a 4th of July event here in Burlington for work. Burlington Vermont as I recently learned celebrates July 4th on July 3rd... interesting huh? I'm still not really sure why, but either way I'm excited for it, since the 4th of July is a holiday that I look forward to every year! 

     I loved this gorgeous dress from Chicwish so much that I decided it had to be styled not once, but twice on the blog! I dressed it down for a casual look in last Monday's post, but I wanted to show y'all how versatile of an item this is, and how easy it was for me to dress it up for today's post. By adding the waist tie (which comes with it), throwing my hair up, and adding a fun clutch and pumps, this look is instantly perfect for a summer wedding, or the rehearsal dinner if it's a formal wedding!

     Wishing you all a happy 3rd/4th of July! I kind of blew it in terms of editorial calendar content for the blog based around the holiday this year... but that will change for next year! 😉 No blog post here tomorrow because my former roommate Ciera is flying into Burlington tomorrow, and we will actually be headed out of town for the night on Wednesday for an exciting overnight road trip! I can't wait to share with y'all where we're going and what we're doing.

     God Bless,
