Fashion Find - Blu Pepper Dress

Hey guys!  I'm sharing a fashion find with you today.  I know - I'm not a fashion blogger and it will be very evident in the pictures I talked Eric into taking.  Don't get me wrong, he was more than willing to take the pictures, but I didn't want any of the passing cars seeing me try to model a dress AND we were in a hurry to get to an event AND the sun was blinding me.  Put all that together and let's just say it was a pretty tense photo shoot! 

Many of you commented on the outfit I wore to EarthDance's Farmers Formal so I wanted to share where you could get it before this dress was gone for the season.

There's a backstory to me choosing this outfit.  I had been on the hunt for something to wear to the Farmers Formal.  A few weeks ago when I visited Hermann with some girl friends, I spotted this exact outfit on a lady waiting to catch the Amtrak train with us.  I was going to ask her about where she got it on the train, but she was in business class and we were not.  Later in the day I spotted her doing a wine tasting and practically ran over to her to ask about her attire.

She happened to pick her's up at a boutique in Columbia, Missouri and I knew I would be no where around that location before I needed the dress.  She was extremely accommodating and let me take a peak at the label.  Blu Pepper was the brand and I was able to find the exact one at Dillard's.  You can get one by clicking HERE.

Notice the adorable lace ruffle at the bottom - well that is a slip I picked up on good ole' Amazon.  It's available HERE.  I'm looking forward to finding other dresses I can wear this slip under.

I happened to have this Kate Spade bag, which worked perfectly with this outfit.  Don't you love when you already have accessories that work?!?
Available HERE
I also love wearing cowboy boots whenever I can get away with it.  Are you in need of a pair?  Mine are Justin and are SOOOOOO comfortable.

My old reliable jean jacket came along in case it cooled off later in the evening.  I remember when I did an impulse buy with this jacket years ago and thought it was too expensive.  Little did I know that ten years later I would still be wearing it.  Turns out, I've definitely got my money's worth out of it!  With the jacket, this outfit should definitely be wearable into the Fall.
If you see me out and about on the next coming weekends, you will probably get an opportunity to see this outfit in person.  I have plans to wear it as much as possible before it has to go away until Spring!
