I definitely need to mix things up because I’ve only been sharing find-of-the-day posts, but I’m hoping you guys don’t mind? As you can tell, I’m obsessed with Red Dress Boutique. Their online collection is beyond cute, and I seriously can’t get enough of their girly designs. For today’s OOTD, I’m wearing their “work of art” floral print maxi dress, and it’s definitely one of the cuter summer dresses I own.
Some notable features are as follows: a modesty snap front closure, quarter flutter sleeves, an elastic waistline and a half-lined maxi skirt. As much as I like plunge necklines, they’re not a cut I typically rock for everyday wear so I’m glad I have the option of covering up.
As for the sleeves, they’re an absolute must for me because I don’t really like baring my upper arms. To be honest, I’m a little self conscious about them being bigger than I’d like so these are great because they create the illusion of a slimmer upper body.
The half-lined skirt’s a nice touch from a design standpoint. It’s subtly sexy, which is a big do in my book because I’m a big fan of classy, elegant ensembles. It’s also great because it matches the sleeves!
For today’s look of the day, I accessorized with a dainty layered necklace from Full Line Collection and carried my new straw bag from My Fashion Crate. For those of you interested, I’m currently hosting a giveaway with them so if you want to win your own, click here to score their summer style box. It’s valued at $300+ so definitely make sure to head over and enter!
The only con I can think of is that this dress is on the longer side. I definitely need to get the bottom hemmed post-COVID, but other than that, I’m a big fan and I highly recommend this piece! Also, I recently re-styled this number and shot it with Jan Galvan so keep an eye out for those pics on instagram. In regards to sizing, I’m wearing a size small, and this baby runs true to size.
