It’s finally spring, and you know what that means! Prom and wedding season is officially here. So basically, my favorite time of year!

Even though my prom days are far behind me, I love reliving the season year after year. I feel like I’m continually on the lookout for a gorgeous formal dress whether it’s for a wedding or a charity gala, and Nordstrom is always the first destination I head to for my search. Today I’m thrilled to be partnering with Nordstrom to share their gorgeous prom-worthy pieces!

Did you know that Andrew and I actually went to the same high school? To this day, we swear we never even saw the other there. Granted, it was a big, public high school and he was a grade above me, but all the same, it’s fun to think that my future husband was walking the same halls and I didn’t even know it! Needles to say, we had so much fun recreating “prom” together for this shoot.

If we were headed to Highland Park High School prom this spring, I’d be wearing this lovely lilac gown. The fit is so flattering while still being comfortable enough to dance all night in. Plus, it comes in tons of colors, including this stunning yellow and this gorgeous blue. For sizing reference, I ordered an XS and found the top to be a bit big. Keep that in mind while ordering!

Here are a few other gowns that deserve a spot on the dance floor this spring. The wonderful thing about shopping for prom and special occasion dresses at Nordstrom is there amazing shipping and returns policy, AKA they’re entirely free! This allows me to order away until I get the fit and the look just right.

Apart from the huge selection of gorgeous formal dresses, I love that you can complete your whole look at Nordstrom. From dancing shoes (these are the best for wearing all night) to statement earrings (I ordered this pair in lilac for this dress) to the perfect lip color (my go-to is Merry Rose), Nordstrom is a one-stop destination for your entire ensemble. They have a great selection of tuxedoes for the man in your life as well.

So if you’re headed to prom this spring or are looking for a show-stopping gown for an upcoming summer wedding, head to Nordstrom! And make sure you take a good look around the dance floor… your future husband may just be there without you even knowing it.

Love from Texas,


Thank you, Nordstrom, for sponsoring this post.

    We don’t have prom in my country but it always seemed so fascinating to me when I saw it in movies. Still found this post very interesting as I do have a couple of formal events this year and need some inspiration.
