The Perfect Party Dress

Dress-Quail, Belt- J. Crew, Shoes-Old Target, Bag-Rebecca Minkoff, Necklaces-Gifted by Lucky Magazine and random charms, Sunglasses-Marc by Marc Jacobs 
Over the sweltering weekend we attended a party for my nephew's graduation. I have to say it is officially summer and I needed a dress that could stand the heat! Luckily, a little while back Quail had this amazing sale on what they coined, (Parade Dress) "The Perfect Party Dress" and I have to say it lived up to it's name. I loved the silky fabric and the aquamarine blue. This dress begs to be worn with a belt, so I threw on my favorite. Now, I am on a quest to add a ton of fun belts to my collection for this summer.
This dress looks adorable with a pair of fun flirty heels, but this was a more laid back party and I dug out my ancient $5 bin Target sandals. These babies have gotten me through many hot summers and and still look new! Now that's a good investment!

you know what, I think blue/turquoise is your color :) You also mentioned that you're an Aquarius and you love water, so it's perfect! The color of the dress really compliments your skin tone :) and the gold accessories just add more of that "beachy summer" look :)
