Aria Western Rose (Collectif)

Ladies and gentlemen, I present you with what may be the most beautiful dress I have ever put on my body.

At first glance, you're probably wondering how it hits that high of a standard but I promise you, this dress is my #1 right now. It's all in the details with this one!

I bought the Aria Western Rose dress from Collectif during their huge sale recently (it was one of my 3 splurges during that sale) and I went for it because it is different than anything I currently have, it's a blue/denim hue that I don't have much of at all, and well, I am a sucker for a cute shirt dress with longer sleeves.

I wasn't so worried about the sleeves. I could tell they had a flare to them and Collectif tends to leave their sleeves roomy (thank you so much, Collectif!) and as expected, they give me no problems. Though I have a bit of room in the bust, I wouldn't size down or shrink it. It fits lovely otherwise and I'd rather have some breathing room in the chest than be struggling in tight sleeves/shoulders.

So those details I am all about? JUST LOOK AT THEM! The embroidery on the chest is just lovely and the rose buttons don't even NEED words to back them up. CAN YOU EVEN STAND IT?

I couldn't when I received it and looked at it close up. I may not even have noticed the buttons when I bought it! But I am mad for them now and am SO happy to have this dress.

It's also extremely comfortable and soft. I'd wear it everyday if I could. It's definitely a dress worth putting into the rotation more frequently than others. It's just downright dreamy!

Well, as of two days ago, we are 2 months away from our wedding. THANK HEAVENS! I am so excited to see it all come together, say "I do," eat some burgers and donuts, and party with everyone. I am also very excited to be in Costa Rica for our honeymoon. I am in desperate need for some R&R lately more than ever (and 99% of it isn't even wedding related). Adulting is hard, guys. 

Cody and I spent the weekend completing all the worksheets and paperwork for our band. They provided their full song list and we got to check off and star the ones we prefer and love so they can create a set list for the day based on our tastes. It was fun! We are definitely going to have one eclectic mix that day, that is for sure!
