Perfectly Purple

Hello and happy Friday! Elana from Room 334 here wearing another gorgeous dress I've borrowed, this time from Hannah of The Braided Bandit. I've been in love with this dress ever since the first time I saw Hannah wear it on her blog so I was incredibly excited when she offered it for swapping. The lavender hue, the lace bodice, the soft chiffon... how could I not be smitten?

I loved playing with different layering options to style this dress, but ultimately decided that I loved the mix of colors that a mint button down underneath and a navy cardigan added. Although against the dress, the cardigan almost looks purple, don't you think? Plus, I couldn't help but think this dress begged for a collar underneath. Well, to be fair, I think most things beg for collars. 

It was still a little chilly when I wore this, but the lavender dress made for a perfect transitioning piece into spring. I don't normally get excited to go to class or work, but wearing this outfit made me so. You might even say I was chipper.

I'm slightly obsessed with how both Ashley and Hannah herself styled this dress. They both added the cutest pink details and I'm especially in love with Ashley's amazing Seychelles sandals and Hannah's fun head scarf. These two girl can do wrong in my eyes.

Well, that's all for me today! Don't forget to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and stop by my blog to say hi and see the outfit details. AND now you can even follow us on Instagram (@flocktogetherstyle)! How exciting is that??

  9. You always know how to make a cute piece even cuter... And it usually involves a collar! Mint and lavender are a wonderful combination, I wish I would have thought of that ;)
