Beautiful Bows & Wretched Wraps

I know that I am supposed to love wrap dresses. I know that they are supposed to look great on every body type and be the best type of dress. However I really have a strong dislike for wrap dresses. This is the only wrap dress I own and I only like it because of its bright color and pretty scarf belt. Maybe its because I am 5’2″ or maybe I am some kind of ill-proportioned freak of nature, but wrap dresses never fit me right. The top is always to low, the waist never hits my natural waist, and don’t even get me started on the fact that a gust of wind can completely unravel a wrap dress.

Moving on from my rant…This is what I wore on Wednesday, and despite my rambling it really is a cute little dress. The scarf is perfect for me because you don’t have to tie it in a bow. I am completely inept at tying pretty little bows. They are always floppy, lopsided and twisted. However this particular belt was made to be tied in this kind of drapey knot (or at least that is how the dress came and I am sticking to my story that a bow is not necessary).

Neatly Neon

I just adore this necklace. I think the color is so wonderful. It really pops in an outfit. I have been trying to slowly expand my necklace collection.

I wore this outfit on Sunday. It was the perfect outfit to make a happy day. My favorite purple dress, my favorite flats (that are falling apart) and my new necklace.

Today I wore an outfit that I have been trying to take outfit photos of for ages and yet again I failed. It started raining on my walk home and I was soaked by the time I got home. Oh well. I will try again another day.

Rosy Red

Time for another outfit post! I wore this shopping and to Starbucks yesterday and then to dinner with my boyfriend and his mom. I think this is one of the only red items in my wardrobe. I am not sure why but it is not a color that I ever wear.

I actually was wearing a different tank top at the beginning of the day, but my purse decided to make a giant black mark across it. I think the strap did not get along with 90 degree and humid weather.

*EDIT* It seems as though my pictures decided to go missing when I first posted this. They are back now.
