Bocce Ball & Lace Collars

dress: c/o dahlia, purse & heels: thrifted, vintage
Happy Sunday! What a wonderful past few days I've been having. Since returning from Minnesota, things have been going well! I'm truly enjoying summer and spending lots of time with people. Today was no exception! This morning I went to church early to sing with the praise band, and then afterwards was a little get together for those involved with the music at my church. :) It was a sort of bocce ball/grill out/party thing. I've never played bocce ball before but I must say, it's actually pretty fun! It's not too intense; in fact, it's quite relaxing and casual. I thing I may do it again sometime! Have you tried bocce ball? 

Along with just having a good time lately, I've also received this beautiful dress from my newest sponsor, Dahlia.  Every dress on their website is adorable - trust me & go look! I absolutely love the print on this dress but the collar is my favorite part. I feel so dainty and cute - I generally never wear such a girly shade of pink like this, but I'm glad I did. It will be fun to style the rest of the summer. 

I have a giveaway that I want to share with you all pretty soon so expect that sometime this week maybe? I'm bad at making promises when it comes to blogging but we'll see! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! xx

    I'm glad you had fun after church! It looks like you did. :D

    && I did have a deviantart back in the day, but I haven't updated it in over a year so it's not really anything recent or nice, haha, or else I'd link you to it. But on my blog there is a tag for "art" and I've got everything recent up there if you are interested, hehe. :D

  16. I always love little get together(s) with our church. They're always pure/clean fun and we make memories that will last a lifetime. Bocce ball? I've never heard of it!? How do you play that?! But anyways, you look so gorgeous girl! I completely love how you styled the dahlia dress with those vintage shoes - too cute! I also love your accessories too :).

  17. I love Dahlia dresses, though its a shame they're a little out of my budget haha! I love the way you styled it with the bag too. Hope you have a lovely week!
