    Restyled: Lace Kimono + Patterned Swing Dress

    Just 2 days left to the school year! I can’t believe it! I’m hustling to get all my grading and work done, but so far so good. I’ll finally be able to breathe next week once everything is all done and I go back to work to finish packing up my classroom. In the meantime, today I’m sharing this restyling of a lace kimono and patterned swing dress. Both items are old, but I saw them hanging near each other in my closet the other day and thought they would look great together. Dress: Old Navy | Sandals: Target My lace kimono was a birthday or Christmas gift a few…

    Floral Puff Sleeve Swing Dress

    I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start so far! This week is full of more appointments for me – basically taking care of all the things I didn’t have time to do during the school year like get my annual physical etc. But, so far this summer break there have been some fun things too like the book event I went to last week for Spin the Dawn. It was a hot day that day that I went in to the city for the book event. Around 90 degrees and sunny. This floral puff sleeve swing dress was a great outfit choice because the swing style meant…

    Marled Swing Dress + Bow Belt

    Today’s my last day of work before spring break! I don’t have any big plans for it, but I’m really excited to sleep in! Today I have a dress down day at work meaning I can wear jeans so I’ll share that look next week, but today I’m sharing a marled swing dress that I wore to work a little earlier this month. I love swing dresses because they’re perfect for work since they’re comfortable and not fitted. This marled swing dress with puckered shoulders is nice and soft and a little looser than I’m used to for swing dresses, so I decided to belt it at the waist to…

    Printed Swing Dress

    It’s Thanksgiving week, can you believe it?! I have two days of work this week and today I took a personal half day so I think the week will go by super quick. I’ve got my winter photoshoot with my photographer friend, Jaye, this afternoon and then I have a dentist appointment. Super excited about my photoshoot, less so for getting my cavity filled 🙁 But speaking of my winter photoshoot, I’ll be sharing my 2nd fall photoshoot outfit this week – can’t wait to share! I got this printed swing dress back in the spring and while I did wear it over the summer I didn’t get a chance…

    Eucalyptus Green Medallion Swing Dress

    I recently wrote about my love for swing dresses for the summer and I’m back today with another one. This eucalyptus green one is thicker/heavier in material than the Old Navy one I last shared making it ideal for those summer days/evenings that are not oppressively hot. This dress has a pretty medallion print on it and I love the combo of the eucalyptus shade and the print. Dress: LOFT | Sandals: Target The mix of colors from the eucalyptus and the medallion prints are very fall friendly. I can definitely wear this to work in the fall with a cardigan so I’m excited about that (though not so much…

    Patterned Swing Dress

    Swing Dresses are perfect for summer because they are so flowy and easy to just throw on. This patterned swing dress kept me cool on a hot summer day and was the perfect outfit to wear out to breakfast. I wore this when I went to Turning Point, which I wrote about (here) a few days ago. Dress: Old Navy  | Sunglasses: Quay Australia This black swing dress is so comfortable and has a pretty white pattern all over it. I got it from Old Navy, which I find to be hit or miss most of the time. So I’m  really glad I found this dress there and that it fits…

    Swing Dress + Denim Jacket

    Happy Wednesday! Not sure if this week is going by quickly or not. Sometimes I feel like it’s going quickly as we’re already at the middle of the week. Other times I question how it’s not Friday yet. It’s been a very tiring week so far with loads of work, but I’m surviving so far! Onto today’s post! How do you all feel about swing dresses? Swing dresses are gaining in popularity lately and it’s easy to see why. They are loose fitting, flowy dresses which means they’re super comfortable, but at the same time they still do have an A-line shape which means you won’t be too engulfed in…
