Blue Elegance & We're winners!!

Before I start out with this outfit post, I would like to tell you guys some super exciting news! Remember in my last post where I mentioned our ECC race being the next day and how we had a chance at being champions.... Well, Guess what?? We WON the meet and we are the ECC champions for the girls!!!!! When our coach told us we had won, it was the best moment of my cross country career! This was the first time that I had been on the team where we were the only ECC champions! My freshman and junior year, we shared the championship title with our rival school, but this year, we have the title all to ourselves. Our rival school is humongous and they always have a lot of runners. With more runners, they have a much better chance of having a better "top" group of runners which makes it really hard for us to beat them. We finally did it this year!!!
The way cross country races are calculated is that they take the places of the first 5 finishers of each team and add the totals up. The runners in the back (#6 and 7 can displace which means that they get in front of the other team's 5th runner and make their score higher.) The lowest score wins! We won 97-100!! I'm still ecstatic over this!! I have woken up every morning since Thursday with sore muscles and a big smile on my face. That moment where we were announced as winners felt so surreal! We got to stand together as a team in front of everyone at the meet and have our photos taken! =)!

Now onto my outfit today! 

Lacey Blue Dress

I got this dress last month and like everything else I own, I haven't had the chance to wear it yet! I plan on wearing this to my cross country banquet in Nov/Dec. though. The dress is made up of a much thicker material than your average dresses and I really do like that about the dress. The thicker material means it will last me longer and the thicker material is actually pretty comfortable. The only thing that bothers me about this dress is that it is a bit tighter at the bottom. I tend to take long strides when I walk, but this dress prevents me from doing that. It's not a big deal, but it is a bit bothersome at first.
I think a nice beige cardigan would look very nice with this outfit and make it appropriate for a cooler day! (even though it has been shockingly warm again where I live!)

One thing that makes me really love this dress is the intricate pattern on it. The dress is a beautiful blue color and on the dress, there is an detailed and unique pattern. On the back of there dress there is a cut out which I love as well as it gives me a chance to show of my back =) The top of the dress is similar to a lace design and like the pattern on the dress, the design is intricate and adds a touch of elegance to the dress. Another positive thing I like about this dress is the fact that it isn't uncomfortable at all. I expected the top of the dress to cause some itching (since I tend to have sensitive skin), but I wasn't bothered by it at all!
I feel very formal wearing this dress!

For my accessories, I chose to wear my alex and ani bracelet and my "love you" ring. Originally my sister was the one who loved alex and ani bracelets, but I think they are starting to grow on me. I love the simplicity of them and how they match pretty much anything I wear! 
For my shoes, I chose to wear my Anne Klein heels. Like my alex and ani bracelets, these heels are starting to grow on me!

What was the best moment of your high school/college years?
What do you think of my blue "lace" dress?

  23. Congrats on winning your ECC meet!! It's perfect timing also because you're a senior and it was your "last chance" to do this. :) I'm so happy for you!!

    I love your dress! It's so pretty, the detailing is amazing, and the back makes it very unique. I agree you could add a cardigan and even some tights or stockings if needed to wear it during colder weather. :) Very cute!
