The Most Flattering Dress for Every Body Type


grey swing dress ($36, wearing a size small), also comes in stripes
Right after we took these photos yesterday, the sky opened up and a huge thunderstorm rolled in… so the lighting isn’t the best in these pictures, but I hope you can still tell how flattering and cute this grey swing dress is! I ordered two (it also comes in stripes) and they were even cuter in person than they looked online. It has to be the most universally flattering dress ever – most swing dresses appear to swallow you up, but this one is the perfect fit. It has just enough material to be super comfy but still somewhat fitted. For this look I added some cute tassel necklaces and my Steve Madden wedges – which happen to be on sale right now!

Today and tomorrow are going to be really tough days. Ever since my brother was little, he has had a passion for Japan and Japanese culture, always knowing that he eventually wanted to live and work there. After graduating college this spring, he officially accepted a position teaching English there… and today is his last day in the United States! My mom and I have been crying on and off the past week, but I know tomorrow morning is going to be the worst (when we take him to the airport). Chris, I’m so proud of you for following your dreams, you have been the best little brother and blog supporter, and I can’t wait to come visit you in Japan!

  8. Very cute dress! I love your tassel necklace! πŸ™‚ Sometimes my favorite time to take pictures is when it's overcast because of all the ambient lighting.

  12. Really loving that dress, may need to snag it!

  13. Always looking so stylish and pretty in everything that you're wearing!
    Sorry to hear that you have to "part" ways with your brother, but he's just following
    his passion and a life-long dream. That's something to be very happy about, not many
    people dare to live the life that they want and settle for something that is just "ok".

  14. Love your necklaces! They're so fun. Sometimes I love taking photos with overcast skies so that i'm not burning up and so that the lighting isn't so intense!
