Embroidered Shift









I typically shy away from shift dresses because they just don't seem to be flattering on my figure (potato sack = not cute). However, when I popped into Ann Taylor last week on a whim, I was immediately drawn to this dress and I was determined to make it work. I love a good orange and white combo, so I literally ran over (I'm embarrassing) to take a look.

You bet I squealed when I saw they had one left in my size. The embroidered detail on both the neckline and hem are to die for!

In order to make this dress look less shift-y and give the illusion that I have more of a figure, I decided to pair it with my tried-and-true denim jacket. The relaxed look of the jacket helped make the look a little more casual. Although I paired this dress with wedges, I cannot help but think how cute this will look with cowboy boots for my upcoming trip to Dallas and for football games in the fall...Go Hokies!

I hope you are having an amazing start to the week!

P.S.
 (even if you're not a total nerd like me) you HAVE to see Guardians of the Galaxy. It's amazing. I might have already seen it twice...but this is a judge-free zone.
