Navy Dress with Flowers + Caitlin's Wedding Shower!

I was lucky enough to visit Newport, KY and Cincinnati (author's note: that's a hard city to spell! haha!), OH last weekend for my cousin-to-be's wedding shower. Fun fact: I was in 4 states in just a few hours on my trip to see the fam. IL to IN (stopped in Indy to meet adorable baby Henry and see my bff, Fran!), to OH and across the bridge to KY! We had so much fun together! I LOVED being with my cousins, Caitlin and her awesome friends! It was great to have a mini-reunion with my parents, aunt and uncle, too. It can be hard living 7 hours away from home! :) I always cherish the time together, since it's not as frequent. 

The beautiful bride to be!
Kara (my cousin) bought that adorable monogrammed clutch for Caitlin.
Find it: here on sale for $14.99. 
Caitlin's necklace: similar here and here

My strapless Lilly Pulitzer dress is over 3 years old, unfortunately, but it's timeless! Floral with navy looks great on everyone. I love that about navy: it's a color that anyone can wear effortlessly.

Other great navy dresses with flowers: here- perfect for a wedding, here- under $60 and loving those nautical stripes in addition to the flowers, here- very retro, here- obsessed with the maxi length and back, here- totally motivated by my former dancer, Olivia, for this one!, here- ideal for work and here- biggest splurge of the dresses, but also my all-time fave! 

Jack Rogers sandals: here on sale!
Stella and Dot earrings: old, but similar here

My mom, me and my dad's girlfriend, Patty at the shower. 

One of Caitlin's bridesmaids got her this apron! It says, "Mrs. Hancock" on it. SO cute. 
Similar apron: here.
Such a cute idea for any brides-to-be!

I just loved the bridal emoji bingo!

So happy to meet Caitlin's sis, Natalie, too!

The beautiful bride wearing this lace dress (which is currently on sale!). 
White lace dresses like Caitlin's: here, here and here
Striped dress options like Kara's: here (the ruffle!), here and here (more ruffle!). 

Do you wear the color navy often?
