White dresses are all the rage this summer.  And I have to say, this is a trend that I am more than happy to jump on board with!  Because while I always love a good splash of color, sometimes you really just can’t beat a white and neutral ensemble.

Dress: Shein c/o (for reference, it runs a little short, so I went up a size and am wearing a  medium) | Necklace: Baublebar | Sunnies: Karen Walker c/o Ditto (rent them for free for one month with code: ALLDOLLEDUPBLOG at checkout!) | Clutch: Clare V. | Wedges: Ugg Australia (obsessed!)

Halfway through the week, sweet friends!  Does anyone have any fun plans for the holiday weekend?

I can hardly believe that another year has passed and I celebrated my 32nd birthday last week. And not only is it hard to fathom that I am 32 years old, but my birthday also marked the 10 year anniversary of my graduation from Vanderbilt. Wowza. Truth be told, I’m not sure which of the two is harder to wrap my head around! But fortunately for me, I had a wonderful celebration to help soften the blow. Due to the perfect timing of our Macy’s Vendor Summit, I was able to spend my big day in my favorite city and be whisked away on a surprise celebration by my sweet hubby. For the first part of the evening, I was instructed to dress warm (more on that later this week), and for the second, I was told to pack a fancy dress. Of course I jumped at the opportunity-it’s not nearly often enough in life that one has the chance to get really dressed up…

Dress: BCBGMaxazria (amazing Nordstrom Rack find!), similar, similar | Bow Belt: Macy’s, similar | Earrings: Sappari (local boutique in Whitefish, MT), similar | Clutch: Coach Legacy | Pumps: Aldo Dixil

I am absolutely head over heels for this dress and have to say that I felt like an absolute princess all night.  And there are so many things I love about it that it’s hard to even know where to start.  But one thing I can say for sure is how important  it is that every girl have a dress her in closet that she absolutely adores and that makes her feel like a million bucks every single time she puts it on.  The way I see it, fashion shouldn’t just be about looking good-but more importantly feeling good!

Thank you so very much to all of you for the birthday wishes last week!  Truly, they made my day.
