Ladylike Lavender

Millau Dress (FAB style here), Charlotte Russe Bow Heels (similar style here), Anthropologie Headband (similar style here)

I spotted the color of this dress from a mile away, but when I got closer I sighed with disbelief...cutouts. I was scared of cutouts...ok I was terrified. Despite the terrifying detail I decided to try it on. Once I slipped into it I realized I didn't mind them at all, I actually liked them! All cutout styles I had previously tried on were bodycon and made me feel WAY too self-conscious, but since this was a looser fit it made me feel much more comfortable. You guys can see what happened next...I obviously needed it :)

Lots of Love xoxo
