Look familiar? I couldn't help but give this outfit its own post, because, I mean, how cute, right? I've long been a fan of the little white dress. My beloved ASOS eyelet dress (seen here and here) shrunk (and, ahem, I grew out of it...), so I was especially excited about finding this gorgeous replacement at francesca's. The scalloped sleeves, the eyelet texture, the A-line silhouette, the perfect fit -- I love it all!

One of my favorite details? The teensy cutouts along the middle. If you look closely, you'll start to notice this ladder stitch on everything lately! The subtle little stitch makes for a unique touch and just screams spring.

Sometimes it feels good to go full-on girly. I would definitely describe my style as feminine, but I tend to balance it out with a different element. I think I was initially trying to do that when I put together this outfit by choosing the geometric necklace and huaraches, instead of something delicate and a pair of heels. However, after I found the headband during my event, I basically committed to the ├╝ber-femme, nearly bridal vibe and didn't look back. At work, I've been obsessed with brides wearing headbands, and now I can't not feel a wee bit bridal when I wear it!

Speaking of obsessed, I received this lipstick from a friend (it's Mary Kay Really Red), and I can't stop, won't stop with the red lip. All the red lipsticks I've tried before were either too blue-based or too yellow-based, but this one, as its name suggests, is really red, and really perfect on me. If you've been looking for the right red for you, I highly recommend giving this one a try!

P.S. Since I think the ladder stitch is such a fun micro-trend, I found a few pieces around the web for you to shop!
