What I Wore: Navy & Lace

Dress: Forever 21
Boots: Payless
I bought this dress at Forever 21 last spring when we were in Chicago. I wore it for the first time when we were on vacation last summer in Vancouver and loved how comfortable it was. However, that trip was in July of last year & up until last month, the dress had just been sitting in my closet. When I was packing for Blissdom & looking for things to wear, I found it! I had completely forgotten about it, but was so glad to be able to add it to my wardrobe options for the conference.
Don’t you love when you find something fabulous in your closet that you forgot you had?! It’s like its brand new all over again!
When we were in Vancouver, I paired the dress with some nude heels and had intended on wearing the nude heels again at the conference, but given the fact that we were gonna be doing some major walking in the hotel, I asked my friend Mandy if I could wear my boots with the dress instead.
She responded with “I just assumed you were wearing the boots!”
That was all I needed to hear! Moral of the story, I LOVE that this dress can go either way! If I need it to be dressy, I just throw on some heels, but if I want a casual, everyday kind of look I can pair it with my boots!
I also love the lace detail around the neckline & on the backside of the dress as well. It’s the perfect feminine touch!
And did I mention the dress has pockets?! EVERY dress should have pockets! LOVE them!
Have you found something in your closet recently that you forgot you had?
p.s. Sorry I am squinting in half of these photos! I didn’t realize I was doing it until I got home & got the photos uploaded to the computer! Guess it was brighter that day than I thought!
