April is FINALLY here and I am so excited about the warm weather we had over the weekend here in Chicago. Perhaps the best thing about the sunshine is that it brings the opportunity to wear dresses. Forget jeans and a t-shirt, if I can wear a sundress, I absolutely will. They’re comfortable and require much less coordination or thought than any other outfit.
A few months ago, I came across this beautiful lace midi dress at EXPRESS and knew it would be the perfect dress to wear as a guest for wedding season. Click read more below to check out more photos and see details to shop the look!
Like I said, I bought this dress months ago and plan on wearing this dress to my cousin Scott’s wedding in June. I haven’t been to many weddings in my lifetime (I am only 21) so I’m very excited! I’m actually from Canada originally and much of my family is there so it will be nice to head back to Ontario for their wedding in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
What I love most about this dress is how flattering it is. I typically stay away from dresses that cling to my body, especially my hips, but the length of this dress makes it quite favorable. Between the piping detailing and lace overlay that hits me right at my knee, it’s feminine and simple. Just how I like it! To accessorize, I wore some gold jewelry and a gold clutch.
I truly think this dress is a staple, not only because it can be worn on a date, to a wedding, and more but also because a midi dress in general is somehow unlike all other dresses. It elevates an otherwise standard look; a normal dress. Plus, I can’t help but love lace. It never seems to fail me
