I don't know if it helps, or if it's torture doing all of these posts from our vacation to Mexico while it is 8 degrees outside (feels like -2) with the threat of more snow and ice on the horizon. I will say it is fun to look back on the pictures and imagine the sand between my toes, rather than snow!
I had purchased this dress a while ago with no place to wear it. I knew the Mexico would (eventually) be in the near future so that totally justified the purchase! I felt so girly in the dress- might have had something to do with all of the frills. I will say, this is a great piece to add to your closet if you have some sort of tropical destination coming up. Even if you don't it's a great dress to just toss on when you aren't sure what to wear (obvi when weather permits).
I wore it to one of our dinners one evening, but I did toss it on a couple of times to run out for a drink/grab a snack, and it made me feel like I at least looked a little more put together than I felt! It's great for a casual special occasion, or just to toss on for some quick errands!
