Geometric Shift Dress

IMG_2773It was hard for me to shift (get it?) into this trend because shapeless dresses don’t always flatter my specific body type. When I found this particular shift dress, the pattern appealed to me but I still wasn’t fully sold until I put it on. I love that it isn’t so stiff and moves with me (and the wind). The neckline is different and flattering for a bigger chest as it provides depth. Extra shape and flare are provided by the longer cut in the back. The color simplicity of black and white mixed with several abstract, geometric patterns make this dress very versatile (and FUN!). I have worn it to work, to both daytime and evening events, and I would even wear it to a dressy-casual summer wedding. I loved pairing this dress with a bright coral Hobo Bag to make it pop and incorporate a spring-time feel.IMG_2749 (1){Shift Dress, Hobo Bag (smaller version here), Cole Haan Pumps, Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Party StarterIMG_2778IMG_2770IMG_2781IMG_2786IMG_2754 (1)IMG_2836

Easter

I always loved our day of traditional breakfast, Easter egg hunts, Easter basket goodness, and being together enjoying Spring. Continue reading
