That Swing Thing

Dress - c/o SheIn / Scarf (similar & only $29!) - Hinge / Flats - Tory Burch / Earrings - BaubleBar / Necklace - Madewell (I was wearing it, I swear!)

I don't know why, but I've been resisting the swing dress. I mostly just assumed they would look terrible on me because of my body type. Well guys, turns out I was wrong. This one SheIn sent me is so cute and weirdly flattering despite the flowy cut. I guess it's the same principle as the poncho or oversized sweaters - as long as you find the right cut, they can definitely work on a larger bust. And sidebar - while I was wrong about swing dresses, I learned this weekend that I was correct in my assumption that OTK boots wouldn't work on me - turns out my legs are long (umm, guess I knew that) and every pair barely covers my kneecaps. Oh well.

Anyway, back to the dress. Not only is it flattering, but it's also super versatile. I wore it over the weekend for a casual lunch date with the family, and then swapped the ballet flats for heeled booties and the scarf for a sparkly necklace for a fancy dinner date with Jeff at Siena Tavern. Another bonus? No one could tell that I basically inhaled a pound of pasta at dinner. So shhh, let's just keep that between you and me.
