Flirty Floral with Caralase

I know I posted about a little black floral dress yesterday, but 'tis the season amirite? I love this gorgeous floral maxi dress - I don't wear empire waists all too much, but whenever I do, Justin always compliments the dress or top... HAHA so maybe I should wear them more often...

This pretty maxi dress is from the one and only Caralase. I can't get enough of their cute products!! This dress comes in four colors - you have the option for the top half of the dress to be white (like mine), black, pink, or blue! I had a hard time deciding which I liked best, because they are all so pretty hehe.

A fun dress like this is so easy to style - throw on a hat and add some jewels are you'll look "ready" in no time.
Don't worry about the square lump on the side of my chest...... it's just my phone tucked away because I had nowhere else to put it. LOL!!!!!!!!

Happy FRIDAY! xo

Fall Floral Transitions

Fall is coming. I can feel it! Days are hot, but mornings and evenings get quite chilly. The first day of fall is less than a month away (and it's on our anniversary! hehe). This pretty black floral dress from Zaful gets me in that autumn mood - the yellowish orange flowers remind me of the leaves that are already turning this color all over town. I'm so excited for the leaves to turn red, that's my favorite part!

It's still technically summer, so I'll be wearing sandals until it's too cold ;)

Dress Fix Up: A Refashion Story

Gooood morning, friends!! I recently received this pretty dress from Sammydress. I absolutely love it, but there were a few things that needed adjusting before I could wear it. I spent a couple hours fixing it the day before I left for Japan, because I really wanted to wear it there!

I wore this outfit out and about in Japan, and my grandma said she liked the dress. So that's a good sign, haha ;) I styled it with my favorite hat from Urban Outfitters and these crazy comfy sandals from American Eagle.

Here is the before:

I didn't love the collar. The shoulders were too big, the dress overall was too big, and I didn't like the long sleeves. I fixed all of that! 

Here is the after:

It turned out a lot better!! The one thing I don't like is that it's see-through, so I have to wear a slip underneath. Anyways, I love how it turned out! It's such a whimsical, lovely dress.
