houndstooth mermaid dress

Happy Monday!

I’ll be honest… I completely forgot I had this beautiful mint houndstooth mermaid dress in my closet. Somehow it managed to get tucked away during our move and it wasn’t until I went to a friends Favorite Things Party, that I remembered I had this absolutely adorable dress. If you have never been to a Favorite Things Party– here is a brief overview of how it goes:

Everyone brings 3 (or amount you choose) of their favorite things as gifts (you set the min. and maximum each participant is to spend) to swap with everyone else at the party. One of the lovely ladies that attended the party mom’s is actually the manufacturer of Junie and Blake and brought 3 of their lovely dresses as their favorite things to swap. They were a huge hit and the gift everyone oohed and ahhed over. I already owned one, so I let the other gals fight over the ones that were brought 😉

Mint is one of my all time favorite colors, so I was immediately drawn to this dress. I also loved the silhouette of it and the subtle houndstooth print. I don’t own any other mermaid style dresses like this, that I can think of, and I actually love how flattering it looks on! It’s completely modest but makes me kinds feel kinda sexy at the same time. It’s a very versatile dress as well. You can wear it to a wedding or order a bunch for bridesmaid dresses if your the one having the wedding. Wear it to church, date nights, or whenever you want to look extra glam! The material is very comfortable and though it looks form fitted to my body, it’s not suffocating or uncomfortable in any way.

I paired it with my these lovely rose gold pumps that I’ve worn many many times since I purchased them! Oh and they are actually on sale now for as low as $59 depending on your size. A few retailers ( I listed them at the end of the post) have them at different sale prices and in different sizes. I love these pumps and highly recommend them, especially if your a rose gold fanatic like myself.
