There are unfortunately those times when I buy a dress and it serves one event and one event alone. Sometimes it’s meant to be that way, like my wedding dress, but other times I wish I could wear it more often. When I shop, I try to always think by the rule of 3s. I need to make sure I can wear it to three different events, and see it being a part of three different outfits, all with pieces I already have in my closet. It’s hard to do all the time, but I try to always keep it in mind.
This dress from Chicwish is so stunning on it’s own. The hot pink color, the pleats, the asymmetrical maxi hem, it’s all so statement worthy. Yet, when wearing it, I realized it is one of those dresses that can be worn over and over again. It is the perfect dress for a Sunday brunch with friends, or even a casual dinner at home. It would also be great at the beach, worn to a wedding, or just a fun anytime dress. It’s statement worthy, like I said, but it also is easily dressed down with sandals and a panama hat. This dress comes in black and white too, so I’m feeling extra tempted to add another to my wardrobe.  I’m especially looking forward to wearing it on a trip at the end of the month!

How was your weekend everyone? Ours was really fun and full of lots of family time! We went down to San Diego Saturday to celebrate an early Mother’s Day with Matthew’s mom. We also got to see our newest nephew Jameson {just 3 months old!}. He’s already so much bigger than when I saw him a month ago! Sunday, I made dinner for my Mom and she, my Dad, and brother, came over in the evening. I made a burrata appetizer with roasted cherry tomatoes, baked fish with herbs in parchment, steamed veggie with a garlic herb aoili, an arugula salad with apples and blue cheese, and chocolate chip cookies for dessert with fresh farmer’s market cherries! It was so yummy and surprisingly easy to put together! I love when that happens!
Happy Monday everyone! Thanks for stopping by!
