Sequins and Sea Breezes: Mixed Prints

Mixed Prints

2/24/2014



I was iffy about this dress when I first saw it. I loved the mixed prints and the shape and design of the dress but I know these types of dresses can be hit or miss on. The girl on the website was totally rocking this dress but I worried it wouldn't look the same on me since I'm sure she's at least 5'5" and super skinny and I'm 5'1" (on a good day) and not quite as twig-esque. Since the dress was on clearance and I couldn't stop looking at it I decided to take a chance and I'm really glad I did! I decided to wear this dress out car shopping over the weekend and it was definitely a great cool and comfortable yet stylish outfit. I love how this dress looks great with sandals and a pair of wedges so all you need to do to go from day to night is change your shoes.

    1. Haha thank you Biana!! You are SO sweet! Unfortunately I am munchkin sized but I try to own it! It's hard shopping online and seeing things on tall girls and hoping it looks at least similar on me! Happy Monday to you too! :)

  3. Hi randomly stumbled across your page.

    Love your blog design and colors! ANd i love your outfit! So summery and Im waiting til the day when I can dress like this again. I love the mix of different prints.

    I am very much twig-esque. I cant seem to gain weight at all. I cant rock much though :\ A lot of things are baggy unless altered.

    Outfit is perfect on you!

    1. Hi Laura! Aww I'm so glad you stumbled upon my blog and like it! :) I totally feel your pain on never being able to find things to fit. I often have that problem myself and it's always such a pain having to get things altered. Hopefully the weather will warm up for you soon and you can start to wear summer things! It's definitely way more fun to wear summer clothes than winter! :)

  6. Oh I absolutely love that purse....it looks like it could hold so much inside without being super heavy on your shoulder. Crazy that is a gloss you are wearing looks matte but with great pigment of course its urban decay one of my favs for sure!

    1. I'm seriously obsessed with this purse! I love that the zippers on the side and the front can be unzipped or zipped to change the shape of the purse! Haha well I do have a little secret with the lip gloss... when doing a shoot I usually take a brush and brush translucent powder over my gloss to not only make it last longer but to keep my hair from sticking to it when taking pictures! ;) Without that it's definitely shiny! I'll do an Instagram pic with it on so you can see it glossy! :)
