Let's Play DRESS Up

Tomorrow kicks off (pun intended) Homecoming weekend at my school! The day starts off bright and early as different teams play their games and sell merchandise, later moving on to the football game and then the dance! Honestly, football games at our school really are not a big deal- although I really wish they were, but it will still be lots of fun! Although I do love sporting my teams red and white colors in the morning, working at the golf table and helping out student council, but what I look forward to the most is picking out a dress for the actual dance. I don't know about you but I will absolutely NEVER pass up on an opportunity to get all dressed up. I had the perfect outfit chosen (Lilly Pulitzer "Emmy" dress in navy with nude pumps) and then I found out the theme was "Endless Summer"... Don't get me wrong, summer is my favorite season but I wasn't exactly feeling it. Anyways with that "dilemma" I am now wearing my Lilly Pulitzer Delia Shift dress in "Watch Out" with Jack Rogers. Although, this is not a typical Homecoming look I think it will still be super cute! 

Below are a few of my favorite dresses that I have recently stumbled upon and think would be perfect for the event! The dresses range in price and are all super unique. A few weeks ago, Dorothy from Prep in your Step posted a picture of her wearing the first dress, I hunted it down and think it is just too cute! The second dress in the iconic J. Crew Factory scalloped dress in black. This piece is incredibly versatile, I have it in navy and have worn it too many times to count! Next is the navy dress in from Lilly Pulitzer- definitely more on the pricey side but so, so, so cute! Finally I just saw this emerald green peplum dress from Asos and obsessed would be an understatement- as Julianna said earlier this month emerald is the perfect fall color! I think I may need to invest in this dress- incase you were wondering the whole "No Shop September" idea hasn't exactly worked out...

  1. That sounds so exciting! Football is a pretty big deal at my school. Homecoming or otherwise, the players wear button downs and khakis with their jerseys on top. Lets just say there is a cuteness overload haha! I love the first dress! Fit and flare is the best silhouette for me, and the vintage print is so up my alley!
    Thanks for enlightening me!
