DRESS   pink flouncy cocktail dress (also available in black)   |   SHOES   christian loubatin ‘simple’ pumps   |   SUNNIES   miu miu 52qs sunglasses   |   CLUTCH   oversized nude clutch (old, similar linked)   |   LIP COLOR   pink nouveau   |   EARRINGS    pearl studs

If only it were socially acceptable to wear cocktail dresses out and about. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good athleisure day… but there’s something about dressing to the nines that makes you stand a little taller and smile a little brighter. That was certainly the case in this pink flouncy dress, and it’s safe to say that I genuinely never want to take it off!

There’s always a need for a beautiful cocktail dress. Homecomings and proms in high school, formals and functions in college, and weddings and galas upon graduation. In my years (literally) of searching for the perfect party dress, there have been numerous occasions I’ve opted for the more slim, sleek look. And while that certainly creates a statement of its own, I found the whimsy of this classic, feminine, twirl-worthy dress so absolutely, wholesomely refreshing.

In the constant pressure to “dress to impress,” this is one frock I choose simply and solely because I loved it without regard to what anyone else would think. Friends, there’s such wonderful freedom and fun in wearing something that truly delights you! And let me tell you, the beautifully flouncy skirt and soft pink of this dress makes it nothing short of delightful.

I dare you to try it on and not smile. It’s also available in a classic black!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Last week was so busy for me with all of the traveling, so I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things around here. I purchased a new lens for my Youtube camera on Saturday (after my previous one experienced a nasty fall) so be expecting some new video content soon! :)

Love from Texas,

Kate

    This is so elegant I love it! Also jealous that it’s warm enough for sleeveless because I’m currently stuck in the snow!
