The Scuba Dress!

It’s that time of the year for tears of joy, perfecting your dance moves to “Shout,” throwing bows for the bouquet, and of course celebrating with friends and family…yes, it is wedding season!  This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending of one my friend’s outdoor weddings on an absolutely perfect 75 degree and sunny day.  Prior to this magical day the feeling sets in as I am sipping on my morning coffee…” Oh snap, what am I going to wear?”  We all have that one dress that is the perfect go to for all occassions, but as I scroll through my Facebook feed my go to dress has been worn more than those cat ears that I wear every halloween…yeah thats pretty bad.

As I racked my brain about where can I go to find a dress that I will not hit the mall traffic, I won’t stand in line till my legs are numb, and I wont be scavaging the racks of clothes only to find extra and extra extra small selections. This is when the lightbulb went off and I pulled my car into New York and Co., which was also a stand alone shop…score!  After a couple of dresses I finally found this amazing gem below!  The tag stated the dress was made of scuba material, do not be alarmed.  When thinking of scuba I am sure flippers, goggles, and fishies come to mind but in this scenario it is not the case.  The great thing about scuba material is that in a form fitting style dress it does not hug in all the wrong places.  It is surprisingly a very breathable material and this is coming from a girl that can sweat just thinking about sweat.

Finding a look with a bold multi color print gives this dress a bit of versatility to mix and match with different accessories.  The accessories I chose were colors that played off of the main prints in this look with the clutch and earrings.  Since there are alot of colors happening keeping a pair of basic wedges in the mix balances the look just right.  See below for accessory details!
