Nautical Dress

I was wearing…
J. Crew necklace & belt
Topshop rings
I attempted to take photos wearing this dress once before, however I made the mistake of not cinching my waist with a belt. When I went to look at the photos I realized how square and shapeless the dress made me look, an issue I think plagues many women when they wear shift dresses. But I think I resolved the problem with how I accessorized in this look – the skinny belt, necklace and clean white sneakers flatters the dress and doesn’t totally hide the few curves I do have 😛
Oh and if you’re wondering, Charley lasted all of 15 seconds in my bag. There goes my dream of having a dog I can carry with me while shopping.
