Valentine's Day Dress & A Giveaway







Shabby Apple dress c/o | L.K. Bennett pumps {similar under $100} | gold woven clutch {similar style} | Sparkle & Whim crystal statement earrings c/o, sold out {but love these!} | ring, sold out {super similar style} | Karen Walker sunglasses | pink lipstick {#31} | nail polish {cake pop - new favorite!}

Just yesterday I was talking about my current color crush {you can see the post here in case you missed it}. Color crushes come and go, but there is only one color that I will always love: pink! It is such a bright and cheerful color -- how can it not make you happy?! For as long as I can remember, I have always had to have pink everything...even my bedroom walls were painted something pretty close to the color of this dress growing up! So when I came across this Shabby Apple dress, I immediately fell in love with not only the style, but of course the color. 

This dress truly has my name written all over it: the cute bows on the sleeve, full a-line skirt and of course the fabulous color! And with all the cute elements of this dress, it can easily be styled as a dress for a guest of a wedding {or a bridesmaid dress for any brides-to-be out there!} or for a date night out on the town aka Valentine's Day! As for accessories, I went with more neutral tones so the dress and these gorgeous statement earrings from Sparkle & Whim could be the stars! These exact earrings are unfortunately sold out, but they have so many other gorgeous pieces that compliment both dressed up and dressed down looks.

And speaking of Valentine's Day, can you believe it's only a month away?! Now is the time to start planning your outfit and I know just the giveaway to help! Shabby Apple is giving away a $50 gift card to one lucky reader!! This is your chance to pick out your perfect dress, whether it be for Valentine's Day or just because! Head over to my Instagram {@rach.mccarthy} to check out all the entry details and to enter! Good luck!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and see you back here on Monday!
