for some dreamy summer night…

Pastel 18.Final

A few weeks ago, I had some girlfriends over to our house, and of course, I had to give a full tour to one of them who hadn’t been over before.  The tour ended in my closet (obviously!) and one of them zeroed in on a dress that was hanging there

“What’s that for?”  She asked me, obviously anticipating some super-glam event coming up on my calendar.

But… nope!  Aside from a quick vacation coming up in a few weeks, Chad and I have exactly nothing big planned for the next few months.  Chances are, we’ll be spending a lot of Saturday nights ordering takeout and watching the baby monitor. 

On the other hand, I’m almost tempted to plan something extra-special just to wear this dress.  I have some daytime events on the horizon but can’t quite bring myself to break out a ballgown in the middle of the day.  But I keep finding myself scoping out possibilities for a really over-the-top night out, just an excuse to break this dress out of the closet!

I love to buy new dresses for special occasions, but I hate the pressure that comes with needing something right now, which inevitably means that I’ll spend a whole day shopping and not find anything I like.  So now I make an effort to find dresses I love before I need them, so that I have something on hand in a pinch!

What about you guys?  Any swanky black tie galas or chic wedding parties coming up this summer?

    I think it’s gorgeous and honestly I don’t think you need a swanky night out as an excuse to wear that.  I think it’s versatile enough!  It’s seriously just gorgeous, as are you!

    I really like this color on you 🙂 you remind me a bit of Cinderella in this dress, but definitely in a good way!

    And you’re absolutely right : when you need a dress/something special, you can’t find it! You really have to start searching weeks or months before.
    I have lots of celebrations coming up the next 1,5 month (6th anniversary of the bf and I, 50y wedding anniversary, birthday, wedding, another 50y wedding anniversary, a holy communion,..) and I only have one thing yet.. -yes, there is going on a crisis in my head-
    I can wear my chic jumpsuit to different occasions but to be completely honest, I’d rather have something different for each event since it’s a few times with the same people and just because I love when I can dress up! If you have the chance, why not?!

    It would be amazing if you (and perhaps your readers as well?) could give me some tips to check out sites/brands, thanks a lot!
    PS : I live in Belgium, Europe.

    Thanks a lot!
