This dress is one of the most beautiful shades of blue I’ve ever seen. It reminds me of the Caribbean. Not that I get these experiences very often, but you know when you’re flying in an airplane and you finally get to that point during your trip where you can spot the crystal clear, Caribbean water? It’s that color.

It’s the A.L.C. “Miki” Knit Dress and it’s all kinds of wonderful. It’s sporty, yet refined. Even though it’s knit, the material is thicker, which I love. That, paired with it’s prominent seams, keeps it structured.


I bought mine from Nordstrom, which is where I’ve done most of my recent shopping. The selection is just so spot on and I can always count on finding new styles that I don’t see in other stores. Plus, the free shipping and returns are my best friend since we don’t have an actual store anywhere in SC.

I paired the dress with a Rag & Bone Blazer. The blazer makes this look office official. By removing it, I’m ready for a wedding, church, or a nice event. Super versatile. 


To accessorize, this outfit didn’t need much. I decided to wear a chunky chain to keep the look contemporary. Added a few bangles and that was pretty much it.

By the way, because I’m sure you’re wondering…ha! I got my hair done late last week, just after these pictures were taken. Hallelujah! I thought I’d try out the natural, grown out look. But that’s just not me. Short, blonde hair now.
