I shared this dress recently on Instagram while attending NY Now in NYC with grace + hudson. It was such a hit that I wanted to share it in a post so you could get a closer look. I love it so much because it’s a good price point for a designer dress, and extremely versatile. Perfect for all the occasions to come… Mother’s Day, Easter, weddings, dress rehearsals, bridal showers, and even a nice date night! The bow embellishment and shoulder cutouts give it just the right amount of pizzazz while keeping it conservative and classy. 

ARIA COLD SHOULDER DRESS: Trina Turk (c/o) PINK PUMPS: Sam Edelman (On Sale 42% off) BLACK CLUTCH: Gigi New York SUNGLASSES: Similar EARRINGS: Nordstrom | WATCH: Timex (c/o) LIPSTICK & LINER: Saint Germain & Good Timing
If you watch my Instastory try-ons you probably saw this dress when I did a special boutique spotlight for Punch Boutique here in the Salem/Roanoke area. They have SO many cute spring pieces so make sure to check out their website or if you’re local, their store. I’m planning to stop by this week so pick up some more fab items! 

By far my favorite detailing on this dress is the bows. It’s subtle and polished but gives it something extra. It would look exeptionally luxe with an updo so you can see the bows and cutout details at all times. I’ll have to try that the next time I wear it! And per usual, I paired it with a bright pair of pumps. I love a simple nuetral paired with a pop of color, usually on the feet. These, as I’ve said many times before, are quite comfortable and wear well even to work. I recently bought them in leopard which would also look super chic with this dress. 

For additional accessories, I grabbed a large black clutchone of my favorites that I also own in magenta. It’s incredibly practical, as it hold so much and can easily be carried no matter the occasion or event. I grab mine many times just to run errands! The black is very versatile. I also added some stud earrings (I wear these almost every single day) that come in several sizes, and a glam pair of super affordable sunglasses. Sadly, my exact pair sold out but I found some similar by the same brand for the same price ($14!).
