Out of all the shades of pink, I think ballet pink is my favorite. It’s just so soft and feminine. Add in some accordion pleats and then I get really excited! I love how simple yet beautiful this dress is. So far, I’ve worn it to #rStheCon and brunch at Bistro31(one of my favorite brunch spots in Dallas! If you haven’t been, sit on the patio and order the lemon ricotta pancakes. You will thank me). I plan on throwing a denim jacket over it when I want to make things more casual. If you’re more of a lilac girl than a pink girl (say it ain’t so!), this dress also comes in a pretty lilac shade.

Interestingly enough, the company behind Elizabeth & James also launched Likely, the designer of this dress. As much as I love Mary Kate + Ashley (Holiday In The Sun was their best movie in my personal opinion), the price points at Elizabeth & James are kind of ridic. Whenever I’m at CUSP at NorthPark, I always kind of wander around the Elizabeth & James section, but I don’t look at the price tags in an effort to avoid depression. So I love seeing that all Likely pieces are around $200. Stellar style that doesn’t break the bank is kind of my life motto (insert fist bumb emoji here).

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend. I’m spending the weekend in Ann Arbor, Michigan with my family to celebrate my brother’s college graduation. I am so crazy proud of him! xx
