Before we start talking about the feminine and flirty dresses that I will show you today, let’s talk about yesterday’s post. I hope that you saw that post, but if not, you need to check it out. It was a lot of fun, and I loved reading all of your comments about Joe’s ability to pick out clothing. I read him a lot of the comments, and he beamed from ear to ear.
I saw that someone left a comment wanting to know, “what’s the point of doing the post,” and that is a fair question, especially since you follow me for “my” style instead of my husbands. 😂
The point was more about having fun, understanding that others can help with your wardrobe choices, and just getting out of your comfort zone. The biggest reason for doing these types of posts is to let “you” become the fashion expert. From your comments, I can tell so many of you have a good idea of your body, what looks good on you, and the colors that you should wear.
I will give you this one tidbit of advice. The other outfit that Joe chose for me was NOT a style that I liked, NOT a print that I liked, NOT a color that I would have chosen, and I would never have ordered it in a million years. It looked FABULOUS on me, and I liked it 100 times better than the one from yesterday. My point is…get outside your comfort zone and try something that you think will not look good on you. You might be just as surprised as I was.
This feminine and flirty leopard print dress is my style! I love the dress’s fit, the length of the dress, the print of the dress, and how the dress is flowy and flirty. I think this dress is beautiful, and it is a great neutral that you can wear for any occasion. Here is a post that I recently did showing dresses for all of your spring events.
The dress has a lot of swishiness (is that a word) to it, and I found myself swaying back and forth to feel it swaying. The dress runs true to size, and I am wearing my usual size 12 in the dress. However, the dress is limited in size since it has been such a popular choice.
Here is the back view for you. This gives you a good idea of how long the dress is and where it will hit on your legs. I am 5’6″ tall, and it hits me mid-calf.
I could have worn black shoes with this dress, but I chose to wear my new tan quilted leather heels from Vince Camuto. This quilted/woven/braided design is a hot trend right now, and the square toe is also trending. The quilted trend is something that I like, but I am on the fence about the square toe. My pair is limited in size, so I’ll link some others also. I am wearing my usual size 9. The widget wouldn’t let me change the color of the shoes, so click to see the available options.
This feminine and flirty dress is by Free Assembly, a new vendor at Walmart. I’ve styled some of their other clothing before, and so far, I’ve liked everything that I’ve gotten. The cornflower blue dress is too cute, and I love the feminine ruffle and the puff sleeves. I ordered a medium in the dress, and it fits me great.
This dress is slightly shorter than the leopard print, but it still hits me below the knee. You can see in this picture that the dress has elastic in the back, and that keeps it looking fitted in the front.
Here is a better look at the ruffle, and you can also see that the dress has a few buttons on the front. I chose to keep my jewelry dainty looking since the dress has a dainty floral print.
The Rylan small diamond-shaped hoops are beautiful, and they can be worn with almost anything. They aren’t statement earrings; they are a complement piece. My gold vermeil chain and cross are one of my favorite jewelry pieces, and I wear them almost daily.
This Coach handbag is several years old, but I pull it out every summer and carry it. I love this little handbag, and it shows. Look how dirty this handbag is, but I have no idea how to clean it. Any ideas??? Here is a link with several of these handbags available, but look them over to see which is the best one for you.
These shoes are also several years old. I should have titled this post “how I shop my closet.” Lol! I love wearing white and burlap during the summer! It is such a summery look, and I always wear these espadrille wedges. Here are some similar heels.
I forgot to list all of the jewelry in this look. I am wearing a faux-tortoise single strand necklace that is 48″ long. The gold chain is a Vincent Chain Necklace, and the AVI gold hoops are both from Kendra Scott.
