I am wearing a cream shirt underneath for modest reasons. It has two sheer lace details right at the waist line. It's hard to see in these photos because the undershirt I am wearing blends in. But you can see a better picture of what I am talking about here!
No, I wouldn't really wear this to the beach :), so if you are wondering what occasions would be appropriate for this dress, I've got a few in mind. Having a Fall wedding this year? I wore this dark lipstick, because I felt this would be the perfect fall wedding ensemble, as your bridesmaid or just attending a friends wedding. It would also be a gorgeous dress for family pictures, engagements, baby announcement, or gender reveal party. Whatever big event you have going on right now, this dress will work for almost any occasion.
If you don't have any parties planned, then you better let your husband or boyfriend know he owes you a fancy date night. Add on a oversized handbag (like this- loving the dark forest color) and a pair of lace up flats, or kitten hills like these ( depending on your height, I'm 5'7!) and you've got a gorgeous look!
