I loved this outfit the day I wore it, but looking at these pictures, I really don't care for this outfit. Some outfits just don't photo well, including this one. And I think I just changed my mind about it. I really love this dress though, so maybe I'll try it again a different way this week. 
How would you style this dress?

  1. I don't see anything wrong with this outfit! I think it looks pretty. Maybe with a belt you could give it a little bit of a boost? :)

  2. Super cute outfit, I love the blazer and dress together! And I feel the same way about A LOT of my outfits. I swear the mirror told me it was cute and then the pictures later, I'm like BAH this does not work and I look like a hot mess. But SERIOUSLY this is a cute outfit, I LOVE IT! And I think it photographs well :)

  3. That's the biggest issue I hear from fashion bloggers, that their outfit doesn't photograph well and now that I've started to do more fashion blogging, I get it. But I can only allow how something photographs make up like 10% of what I think of the outfit. This outfit looks amazing on you! It's so adorable! And you said you liked it all day, so you must have felt good about it - let that be your deciding factor instead! Also just got a chance to see your bridal shoots and OMG how BEAUTIFUL! <3


  4. You're crazy, I love this outfit! I think we are our own worst critics. You look great!

  5. I think this outfit is perfect! So girly and classic!

  6. I think this outfit is perfect! So girly and classic!

  7. Are you serious? I love this outfit! I understand the feeling of outfits not photographing well. I hate when I take pictures after the day is done and see them only to have that "you mean I looked like *that* ALL day long?!" feeling. I think the way you styled it is just perfect- a pretty necklace, and a colorful cardi. I'd try it with a blazer, too. I'm not sure what the strap situation is, but you might be able to experiment with layering a shirt underneath? Or a scarf! Ah, the possibilities are endless :)

    1. Also, I'm following you on bloglovin now :)

  8. Love this outfit.. What about a cropped cardigan? Unless your like me, I hate those things! A belt around the dress and cardigan would be cute too! Can't wait to see how you style it next! :)

  9. i love the target dress! and that colorful layer on top! so cute

    love from San Francisco,

  11. I just found your blog on Pinterest, and I'm SO GLAD. One, we have the same name :) Two, you love Lauren Conrad's clothing line (your coral blazer is fabulous). Three, you own the flats I wanted soooo badly from Marshall's, but they weren't in my size :(
