If you saw my Pick of the Week from this past Sunday, then you know that maxi dresses are a must for me lately. When I saw this pretty gray maxi dress at the Shopbop sale a few weeks ago, I knew I had to have it. You know that feeling?! Not only is it SO PRETTY, but it is such a reasonable price. The little ruffle and crochet details really make it feminine and pretty. But, I have a confession. When I first got this gray maxi dress, I couldn’t even zip it up!! Neil had to hold it together while I sucked in! The dress is true to size; I just didn’t realize my size at the time! My body was still swollen from giving birth, but I can now zip it unassisted haha! Progress, right?
So, I do have a question for y’all. Is this dress appropriate for a summer wedding? We have one coming up in a few weeks, and I think this gray maxi dress is a contender. However, I always worry that lighter colored dresses may look too much like white, and I would hate to make that faux pas! Honestly, I think this dress might be just fine because it is very gray. Pairing this dress with pretty pink accessories was a no-brainer. I love the soft neutrals and it is perfect for summer.
