Top 5...Dresses I Dream of for Cup

I know I still need to get you information on my adventures in NOLA for Mardi Gras, but wanted to do a little something fun in the middle of all of the work that seems to be piled on top of me this week. As I'm still on the search for a dress for Carolina Cup, quickly approaching next Saturday, I decided to do some online window shopping for my top picks I would love to wear.

While I already had a dress in mind that I already own, of course I'm using this as another excuse to shop. But hey, I'm getting a pretty decent tax refund and am rewarding myself for all of the craziness grad school has brought to my life.

So with no further adieu...

5. Ricci Shift  in Bright Navy Look Lady
While I typically fall in love with Lilly dresses that are bright and colorful full of pinks, oranges and yellows, this one caught my eye. With navy now a main color on my horizon, and yellow as my classic favorite this would be a cherished dress, especially with the fancy neckline. But I just couldn't imagine not wearing any pink to Cup!

4. Margot Shift in Classic Floral White Trellis
Simple. Classic. Pink. I absolutely love shift dresses and this would be something great I could also then wear to work with a cardigan. Unfortunately I don't particularly think my skin is in any condition to be forced upon sporting a white dress just this yet.

3. Wyatt Dress in Multi Peel and Eat
Funky and chic. My favorite animal for ages has been flamingos and when I saw this at the store the other day I nearly went crazy over this print. While it's fun and has just enough pink in it, I'm not sure if I can pull off the print. It's definitely a bold choice and one I'm not quite sure I'm willing to make.

2. Bowen Dress  in Classic White Floral Trellis
In the same print as it's shift twin as my #4 pick, we now have it transformed. I really like how there's print on the dress but it's not completely covered. Similar to the shift, the white i just an issue for me right now. But I would absolutely love to have this in my closet, it would be perfect for summer occasions. 

1. Chloe Dress in Hotty Pink  First Impression
And the winner is...Chloe! I love love love this dress. I saw it at the store here in Columbia, but it was offered in a different print that I cannot find online that made it look even more amazing. I'm really getting into the one shoulder dresses and this one was perfect. Even if I can't find that other print again I would happily purchase this one. The bold print is big which I feel gives it a more elegant look. And with the different shades of pink, it would match perfectly with my pink derby hat. 

Stay tuned to see what I will end up wearing, there will be plenty of pictures. Have a wonderful Tuesday and if you need a little break...take yourself online window shopping, it will do wonders to your mood!
