Flowers in Bloom



What to do when a curve-hugging dress leaves you a little less than confident and there's no Spanx to be found?  Throw on a cover up like this baby pink kimono!  I absolutely LOVE the print of this bodycon dress, but let's face it, I have pudge and I'm not afraid to say it.  Having a baby will do that to you.  As will eating too many Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.  And I'm not giving those up anytime soon. :P

Anyway, you can now see the best of both worlds.  My "classier" take on the dress, and my "street walker" take on the dress.  LOL.  I think next time I'll wear it as a beach cover up, because this dress is short enough to show some crack if I bent over.  And crack kills.  Remember that.

Have a great Monday! <3








Dress and Kimono: Forever 21 // Purse: Target // Heels: Seychelles (Crossroads)

You look HOT in that bodycon dress, Toni! I think you can pull off wearing it without the wrap!

That is a super cute dress too bad it's a bit on the short side that is one thing that will stop me from wearing something too. I like the cover up and the bag you paired it with is awesome :)

Haaaaa! "crack kills" I'm not giving up my Reese's either, although come to think of it, it has been some time since I've had some. Lucky Toni, you are the owner of the Xhilaration® Pink Neon Pearl Top Handle Handbag. It is sold out online and I've only seen orange in the store, which I didn't want.

I love the print on your dress. I really like the purse.

Jenna said...

LOL that was hilarious. You look great in this dress! I think it's the same one Jess is wearing in her most recent post too! Great minds think alike! It looks lovely on both of you. It looks like the kind of dress that is such a great price and so beautiful that I buy and never wear hoping to want to fit in it/feel confident enough to wear. I think it looks great with and without the kimono cardi, and I love that pink bag!!

Clouds said...

Wow I love this dress!

Well... said...

Haha, no offense taken Toni! Don't worry, your comment actually flattered me :)
I know, in those photos I was like "Whoa, when did my legs look that slim?"
Turns out I've lost about 3 pounds, and while its just a little, I guess it still shows! So thanks, you did notice correctly haha!
Now the problem is to keep that extra weight off...because girl, I do love my chocolate and am not giving that up, whether its swimsuit season or not!

I have the kimono cover-up and I agree! I love using it to cover up everything, especially with my pregnancy. But, you, on the other hand, don't have anything to cover up. It looks great without the cover up, too! Love the styling with the neon pop of color. Absolutely gorgeous! :)

Asher said...

I love this look! I'm a sucker for a good floral print and it looks great with and without the kimono cover-up. I know how you feel about the length, though - f21 is pretty good at selling unbelievably short dresses!

Sarah said...

I love your shoes :o where do they come ?

Velvet Bloom said...

Josie said...

The Midwest Muse said...

This dress is so sexy and I never would have thought to pair a bold neon bag with such a bright and bold printed dress. It's amazing and um, your hair is perfect like this!
