Sequins and Sea Breezes: Loving him was RED

Loving him was RED

4/21/2014


I'm decided to totally channel my inner Taylor Swift with this outfit and all my red accessories. It's no secret I'm completely obsessed with Taylor and her style so I when I found this dress at Express I immediately thought of a similar dress Taylor wore last summer in yellow so I had to buy it. Oh and the dress has pockets so total added bonus! Everything in Express was 40% off this weekend so this dress was only $29.95 and is the perfect Spring/Summer dress for me. Lately I've been loving things with an open back which isn't overly practical for me since I can't/won't go without a bra but I made it work! 

One of the main reasons I love this dress is because it's so easily dressed up or down and while super simple, it has a really feminine look to it. You can really put any color accessories with it and it will still look cute and I love the pleats at the neckline. And did I mention the pockets? Of course I did but my obsession with pockets is worth mentioning again :) 

Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend!
