Style Post: Classy Glam & The beginning of the Bouquet!

Hi friends!
This past semester was my classes freshman formal (blogging on it now because we are finally up and running!! PRAISE). Formal is basically a time for all of the students to come together, dance, and have a good time in the midst of a stressful week. This year I was in charge of the decorations committee so it wasn't necessarily stress free for me and my awesome team, but it was definitely worth it! (See a post about party planning tips soon!). This year the location was the Downtown Arts Center in Lexington, KY. IT WAS GORGEOUS. If I have any need for a location like this again, I will definitely be hitting up the DAC. The downtown city life definitely added to the overall feel of the formal and it made for some seriously gorgeous photos! 

On to my outfit:
I wanted to do something classy and chic for formal since I attended multiple dances in high school and was a little over the LBD. Forever Twenty-One was a life saver when it came time to find something over spring break. I'm super busy during the school year so unless it is online shopping I usually don't have much time unless it is the weekend and with planning the formal my weekends were PACKED. 

When I found this combo I was super excited! It originally came with a top and bottom that matched in pattern, but I fell in love with the cream skirt! 

My top, skirt and shoes are all from Forever Twenty-One and i've linked some similar styles at the bottom of the post in all different price ranges:

These shoes are my new favorites! They are actually some of the most comfortable heels I have ever worn and the nude suede matches so much! (link below) 

{Top: Forever-21, Skirt: Forever-21, Heels: Forever 21 (Similar: here), Lip gloss: Urban Decay Revolution in the color frenemy, Setting Spray: Urban Decay "All Nighter", Earrings: similar here
