Dark Blue Floral Ruffle Dress

Hey everyone and happy Sunday! I hope you're having an amazing weekend. My weekend has been pretty awesome. I actually got to relax on Friday which is rare and yesterday I spent the day with my sweetie. In a few hours I'll be heading back to work but it'll be a short week for me since I'm off Thursday night for the early premiere of Suicide Squad. I'm so excited to see it!!! I wish it was already Thursday but in the meantime I have an amazing dress to share with you that is such a great summer choice for everyone and I'm sure you will love it as much as I do.


The Dress 
I think I'm going to start calling this summer the summer of dresses since I've become somewhat obsessed with them and wear them as often as possible. I promise I do have other clothes but there's just something about wearing a cute summer dress that makes me feel super feminine and beautiful. The dress I picked out for today's post is no exception. I fell in love with this dress the minute I tried it on at Buckle. It was literally the only dress I tried on that day because I was bound and determined to buy something else but that decision flew right out the window as soon as I saw my reflection in the mirror. I love the color of this dress and the floral design is super feminine and so pretty. The ruffle at the bottom only adds to the awesomeness of this dress and the straps make it the perfect dress for summer. It also has little pleats down the bodice which I think adds texture and beauty to an already gorgeous dress. It's a little pricey at just under $60 but it's O'Neil which is always a bit more expensive than other brands. It's totally worth the money I assure you ;) I've linked this beauty below for you and a similar one that isn't so pricey. So, how did I end up styling this dress?

My Style 
I wanted to feel beautiful and ultra feminine when I wore this dress out with my sweetie so I decided to wear my new cognac heels from Shoe Dazzle that I just got in the mail last week. At less than $40 these heels are a great buy and I love the retro feel they have to them. It took a minute to get used to them since this day was the first time I wore them but eventually my feet adjusted and I was walking tall :) If you don't like wearing heels or you just want to go for a more casual look you can wear a cute pair of sandals instead. If you like the dressy look but need a pair of shoes with a bit more stability then a nice pair of wedges would be the way to go.To recreate my look I've linked these shoes and a similar pair below for you as well as the different options I mentioned.

Isn't this dress absolutely gorgeous? How would you style it differently? Heels, sandals, or wedges? Which would you choose? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and happy shopping! 

Goodbye for now...Fashionable Tigress
