TUESDAY DRESS

I always feel like I’m waiting for the next season to arrive. When we had our long snowy winter, I kept lusting for summer. Then summer came and it was (and still is) insanely hot and humid. So now I’m just waiting for fall.

Really, I would just take a solid week in the low 80s or upper 70s, but I’m not quite sure when we’ll see that kind of weather.

Regardless, we all still have to get up and get dressed each morning and right now the less clothing the better. I went for this Reformation Tuesday dress made from lightweight viscose.

I honestly fell in love with the print of this dress before I fell in love with the style. Do any of you ever do that? Buy something because you like the color or print, not necessarily the shape or style of the clothing? Perhaps I’m alone in that, but the style ended up growing on me.

The collar felt a little constricting at first, but I now can appreciate the peter pan style collar. It’s pretty cute right?

Sadly this dress is no longer available, but Reformation has so many other great styles and they’re sale is still going on right now. Up to 70% off!!

THE BODYSUIT

I would never describe my style as sexy, but I would definitely describe this bodysuit from Reformation as such. According to the brand’s website, this bodysuit will make you feel 50-75% spicier and they weren’t kidding. I’d say I felt a bit spicy in it! Haha. (I can’t even take myself seriously saying that.)

I think this bodysuit works for me and my style because I don’t have much in the way of boobs, so it doesn’t come across as overtly sexy. I mean, there isn’t much cleavage going on in the pictures below.

By adding the floral duster from Free People and my new favorite rust booties, this outfit was just an amped up or slightly sexier version of my usual style. The only downside is that it takes a solid 10 minutes to use the bathroom because you essentially have to undress completely. But hey, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do!

A NOD TO THE 70’S

I have been in the need of new skirts lately and decided to check out ASOS, since I hadn’t been on their site for nearly a month (that’s a loooong time for me). I tend to check out my go-to fashion sites several times a week to see what new goodies they get in stock. It’s a major problem of mine because it inevitably leads to me wanting to buy more and more! Honestly I’m out of room in my closet so I don’t even know where any new stuff would go, but yet the search continues.

While looking through the new items, I realized that 70s style is on-trend again. I mean, check out these skirts from ASOS, these pieces from Zara and even the new Reformation collection. Hey I’m not complaining. I can’t say I was always a fan of 70s,  but I find myself drawn to this style. And guess what makes these styles even better?! Go ahead guess…….they come in fall hues!! Ahh and I just posted about my love of fall colors so I am beyond excited and cannot wait to get my hands on some of these 70s-style goodies!

Just look at all that denim and suede. Those materials scream fall and 70s! Feel free to pair these items with a peasant top or some chunky clog sandals (a la Charlotte Stone) to keep with with the 70s trend!

FOLKLORIC

I saw this printed Penny dress on Reformation’s Instagram about a week before the garment came out and I knew I had to have it. I love the wrap style of the dress, which allows you to decide how loose or tight you want the dress to be, and the all-over rainbow floral print!

It also just so happens that I wore this dress to an interview with Anthropologie and I got the job!! Guess there’s a little bit of luck infused into the dress as well. Haha!

The dress is currently sold out, but Reformation has a waitlist so I’d hurry up and get your name on the list because you don’t want to miss out on this beauty!

TAKING THE PLUNGE

I’ve always loved having smaller assets because they work really well with the clothing I like to wear…and I can get away without wearing a bra as was the case with this dress (ahh so comfy!!).

This Reformation dress is the right amount of sexy and sophistication. It has a plunging neckline, yet it also has a midi length so that way I don’t show too much skin. However, even with my small ta-tas I still had to keep an eye on my cleavage and make sure there were no boobies popping out! Besides that little issue, this dress is honestly so comfortable and really an easy way to feel like a million bucks!

I’m such a huge fan of the Reformation brand, not only because they make killer clothes, but because the brand is also eco-friendly. If you aren’t familiar, I suggest you check out their site. Their clothing is a little pricey, but totally worth it. Trust me, I own at least 30 Reformation pieces!! And for those of you who aren’t like me and have an ample bosom, they just released their second collection designed for women with C-DD breasts!! Shop away!

P.S. Here’s a little secret for those of you on a budget. If you check eBay, you can usually find pre-owned Reformation pieces in amazing condition for a fraction of the price! That’s where I got this dress for $83 (originally $148).
