Oh happy day :)

I've been very productive today! I took a break earlier today and went for a nice long run on Lake Shore Drive, and it was beautiful out. It's odd to see ice on the beach when it's 64 degrees out.  

I am pretty satisfied with the work I accomplished today, so now I'm browsing dresses online. I realized I should get another dress (even though I've put myself on a strict budget), because I graduate in May and I'm attending 4 weddings this summer. I know I will rewear my yellow J. Crew dress...


The silhouette on this dress is so perfect. The deep V neckline and back is very flattering and the bow tie hits at the most flattering spot on the waist.
 

I always think J. Crew dresses are the best investments for more formal occasions. They give a great shape, they're pretty reasonably priced and we love them so much so we wear them over and over.


This one has about the same shape as my yellow one, but it's less structured. $150. Thoughts?


The way this girl is standing really bugs me, but this dress is pretty cute. 


I was also looking at some dresses at Nordstrom...

$178. Are the ruffles too much? I'd have to try it on, but it's cute on her!


Can't go wrong with Ralph at $124.


That's all for now...


If any of you have one of these dresses, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it! I love these dresses but we all have our pet peeves and/or loves about each one. 


Oh Happy Day...TGIF to everyone who worked hard this week.




I know one of our bloggy friends posted this video awhile ago...hopefully they won't get upset that this song fits for me today :)

I love all of the colorful dresses! I feel like black is a little bit harsh for a summer wedding unless it's a black tie affair.

I love the yellow one! Anything with a ribbon or bow usually gets my vote :)

Pink Flamingo said...

I vote for either the pink ruffle dress from Nordstrom or the yellow JCrew...LOVE THEM!!

AHAHAHA I heart Sister Act 2 SO MUCH! :) And I am very happy this song fits you today :) I have the silk Sophia dress and I LOVE it! It fits perfectly and always looks wonderful. I have it in a kelly green color (from a few years ago) but I think I might get a new color for a wedding this summer in Milwaukee...let us know what you decide!!!

Hmm, apparently my comment didn't work the first time. Anyway - I LOVE the yellow dress! And the pink ones as well, of course. But they yellow is so classic and I think it'd be perfect for your event - so exciting to graduate!!
