I’m back in DC after a whirlwind of a weekend in downtown Nashville, celebrating my cousin’s wedding. The wedding was such a fun time, perfectly suiting my cousin and her new husband’s personalities.
On Saturday morning, we went to the Frothy Monkey, an eclectic, hipster restaurant for breakfast (I’d go there again in a heartbeat!). We spent the day walking around Nashville and exploring the city. After roaming around and getting a light lunch to hold us over to dinner, we got ready for the wedding and headed over to the Bell Tower for the ceremony and reception.
Throughout the night I received several compliments on my dress, so I thought I’d share the details and some similar styles. I wore a violet, lace dress by AQUA that I bought online from Bloomingdale’s. I paired the dress with a Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC convertible crossbody bag and strappy Michael Kors heels.
This exact style dress was exclusively sold at Bloomingdales, and now there are just a couple sizes available in violet and black. But there is good news! AQUA has some very similar styles in darker colors. These would be perfect if you are looking for a dress like this for a fall or winter event.
- Top Left: ASOS TALL Lace Floral Scallop Midi Dress, $89
- Top Right: Warehouse Premium Lace Full Midi Dress, $267
- Bottom Left: AQUA Lace Cami Midi Dress, $148
- Bottom Right: ASOS Lace Hitchcock Midi Pencil Dress, $121
While lace and midi dresses are definitely trendy right now, I think there is something classic about this look. They can be worn at different types of events and for years to come. Maybe that’s why I went for it.. and why I’m so tempted to get another one!
Good luck my fellow shoppers, and let me know if you get one.
