Cobalt Blue Peplum Dress

Finding the perfect dress for a wedding can be a challenge, especially when it’s a summertime wedding. The heat and humidity are huge factors when determining your look for the day. My cousin’s wedding was last weekend in downtown Annapolis and I had spent months trying to find the perfect dress. When I stumbled upon this cobalt blue peplum dress a few months ago, I knew it would be perfect for their nautical themed wedding.

Once the weather becomes warm, I start craving s’mores. There is something about the combination of s’mores in the summertime that I always look forward to. But, honestly, half the time I shy away from making them in the summer because it’s way too hot to stand by an open fire.

I have spent the last few months searching for a gingham dress to add to my closet, but didn’t have much luck until I stumbled upon this one. Gingham is one of my favorite prints of the season and it only seemed fitting to add another to my collection (you might remember last year’s from this post).
