toasting spring’s arrival

this weekend we rang in the arrival of warm weather at the engagement party of a childhood friend. i was not only very excited for the happy couple (EMB y’all are precious together) but also for the chance to debut my first warm weather frock of the season. what i wore…

Nicholas maxi dress

2 nancy gonzalez clutch (i carried a vintage suede clutch similar to this)

3 givenchy abstract pearl ring

4 nude slides from forever21 (old, similar option here)

Nicholas is currently one of my go-to brands for special events, their prints and embellishments make show-stopping party dresses. since i don’t love the $600+ price tags that usually accompany them, i’ve been lucky to find several available on rent the runway or at end of season sales on shopbop (you can see me in another Nicholas back at Christmas here) .

this one was absolutely gorgeous, super comfortable and slightly sheer at the bottom. this picture turned out super blurry but you get the gist…

check out some of my other favorite nicholas styles (including a few available rentals)– very similar printed maxi, this blue stunner perfect for playing wedding guest, a bold polka dot pantsuit, a punchy strapless number, a gorgineee tiered lace dress and their ever flattering plunging V-neck LBD. you can also see all the Nicholas styles RTR has to offer here.

cheers to spring CPs– we made it!!
