Blue Maxi.


When J and I got married exactly five years ago (tomorrow!), many of our friends and family members had either already tied the knot or were in the process of planning their upcoming nuptials. But, after our wedding, there seemed to be a relative lull in wedding celebrations (which had quickly been replaced by baby showers). 
The wedding hiatus came to a screeching halt this past year when we received not one, not two, but SIX wedding invitations for the summer of 2015--four of which were going to be held out of state (Mexico, Colorado, Illinois, and California). So, after we got through the initial chaos of planning out vacation hours, plane tickets and hotel rooms, we put on our dancing shoes and decided that we would spend the next few months burning up dance floors and teaching the youngins how it's really done. Because, as my favorite Colombian blonde once proclaimed: these hips don't lie. ;)

Since posting the above pic on Instagram (from our Colorado trip/wedding), a number of people requested outfit details. Given that I had just bought the dress from Macy's a week or two prior, I thought that I would be able to easily find it online and share the link with you. But, the dress turned out to be my unicorn.
I couldn't find the exact dress anywhere, even when I searched for it by brand name. So, I did the next best thing and put together a few lists of similar dresses and accessories that I love just as much as the ones that I wore to the wedding. For those looking to purchase this exact dress, I suggest hitting up your nearest Macy's.
It might be hiding out in the clearance section!

Ann Blanche Ballerina Flats & Scarves--Exclusive 50% Off Sale + Giveaway!-- CLOSED.

It's funny how much personal style can change over time. 
If you've been following my blog since the beginning, you have probably seen me go through a lot of different stages. But there's one thing that I'll always come back to: ballerina flats. 
And I am completely head over heels in love with Ann Blanche ballerina flats

I don't know where these beauties were when I was coming of age and finding my own style. (Truly, I had ZERO style before my twenties. I like to think that I'm still making up for not having fun with fashion for so many years.) But, these flats are the perfect shoe. They look amazing with jeans, skirts, ankle pants, and dresses. They come in a variety of colors and adorable designs. They are comfortable, lightweight, and can be folded up and carried in a purse. AND they are totally affordable!
