Wedding Season

If you’re anything like my girlfriends and me, your summer schedule is a whirlwind of wedding weekends! Sounds familiar, right?

From bridal showers to bachelorette parties and ceremonies to receptions, you’re going to need a plethora of go-to dresses in your closet! You’ll want dresses that are comfortable enough to bust a move on the dance floor, stylish enough to show your personality, and versatile enough to wear over and over again. Meet this little Mara Hoffman number!

I can’t get enough of the flattering material ofย this dress! It’s a thick, stretchy knit fabric that truly sucks you in. Noย Spanxย necessary. ๐Ÿ˜‰

When it comes to versatility, this dress is sure to get some mileage. I’m already envisioning it with both a white denim and blue jean jacket for weekend brunches with the girls, black tights and a blazer this fall, and a pair of white Converse sneakers for exploring NYC this summer!

    I have quite a few weddings this summer as well and it can be expensive to keep buying new dresses. I found a dress similar to yours that I plan to wear to them all. Your dress is great because it can be dressed up or down and will work for multiple occasions.

    Ps Thanks for visiting my blog -I was so happy to get that comment from you! It means so much! ๐Ÿ™‚
