Lavender Pleated Dress in Paradise

lavender pleats in paradise

I know I talk about the weather a lot on my blog, but living in Canada can be tumultuous. Right now, it’s about -17C PLUS a windchill of -28C. That basically means insta-frostbite. While I can’t hide inside all day, I can daydream about summer days and palm trees. It might be a little masochistic to look back at pictures from my Christmas Mexico trip, but I wanted to share an outfit that brings back memories of the warm ocean breeze and sun.

I’m wearing a chiffon pleated dress from Urban Outfitters, and gold sandals from Guess. The dress is breezy and pretty, with a sexy low back, sheer lace panel and a trendy high low hem, which shows off my legs, but covers my behind to prevent any “oops” moments if the wind picks up!

Another focus of this look was the jewelry. I’m wearing a white and gold lion cuff c/o Persunmall, along with a knuckle chain ring from Forever 21, and my beautiful moon and star gold ring from Winners (similar here). I’m also wearing a spiked bracelet from Cocoa Jewelry (similar here) and my Michael Kors Tribeca watch.

This dress would be perfect for attending a destination wedding as it’s formal and dressy, but still light to wear in the humid climate. I like how flowy and light this dress is, and I’ve fallen in love with the delicate crepe chiffon fabric and pretty lavender pastel colour. It has me dreaming of summer all over again…
