Rose romance.

Pink ASOS rosette strapless dress, Arm candy: Pale blue c/o LuLu*s bracelet, Ivory c/o Charlotte Russe rose wrap bracelet, gold rings via Crossroads Trading, Ivory stone ring c/o Beginning Boutique, Ivory vintage Chanel clutch, Nude c/o Steve Madden Marlenee sandal heels.

If I could relive Valentine's Day again, I'd have a sweet picnic date out in Napa somewhere involving wine tasting & maybe this would be the dress I'd take out...everything about it is so romantic and beautiful (I thankfully found it in the sale section while online shopping on ASOS).  
The important part of accessorizing for this dress is to keep everything soft and subtle -- I paired accessories with golds and interestingly a pretty pale blue color with this LuLu*s bracelet (lovely pastels for Spring).  The perfect shoes to top off the outfit were these sandal Marlenee heels from Steve Madden.

For the shoot, decided to go with a romantic pretty setting at the Berkeley Botanic Gardens again (seriously can't wait to visit again once everything is in bloom this May).  Once again lovely photography by Matthew Liu, Sight Through Glass Photography :).  
Have a lovely start of your week Beautifuls!

I think the length of your hair emphasizes the cut of the dress and makes it look even more stunning. Plus your accessories really add a great finishing touch to the entire outfit.
