Emerald Green High Low Ruffle Midi Dress

It’s back to work for me today, but thankfully it’s just a professional development day and is remote so it should be an easier transition back after being off since the 23rd.

Last week a friend of mine got married and I attended the ceremony. I didn’t make it to the reception, but it was still fun to dress up to attend the ceremony.

It took me a while to find a dress I liked and that fit. I originally got a long sleeve sequin dress to wear, but it ran so small that I could barely slip it on over my head. Then, I found this emerald green high low ruffle midi dress from ASOS. I thought it looked so pretty and just the right amount of dressy. I love the cut and the ruffles with the high low detailing is so pretty. The emerald green was perfect too and not just because it’s my favorite color, but because I thought it was good for the holidays seeing as how the wedding was right between Christmas and New Year’s.

I did need to take the straps up a little bit so my aunt made some alterations for me. She also added a few extra clasps in the back because originally the back had just two buttons leaving some of the back exposed, which was fine but the few extra clasps meant I could wear a regular strapless bra instead of a sticky bra so that was a plus.

I finished off the look with strappy gold heels, a pearl hair clip, my long shearling coat, and my faux leather panther bag.

I may have only had this whole outfit on for two hours or so, but it was nice to dress up. It’s been a long time since I’ve had anywhere to go that required dressing formally!
