This week, I realized something about myself: I am a creature of habit and my creature comforts are off-the-shoulder styles, maxi dresses, and the color blue. Can you blame me? Especially when a dress is as pretty as this one from Shein. I am going to be changing it up the next few weeks, so get ready! Starting with my hair, because what even color is this? No one knows.
Back to this blue beauty, I love how flattering it is from someone with my body type (curvy af) and how much this sapphire shade POPS. Listen to me, if you have breasts and hips - CINCH. THE. WAIST. Do it, trust me. You will look like a literal Sophia Loren-like goddess with proportions from the heavens. This jewel tone in really pretty in person, but it photographs even better. Definitely something I would wear to a late summer wedding if one of my friend's ever forced me to come to their wedding despite knowing how I feel about them (weddings, not the actual person). I also (clearly) love the showstopper slit, because who isn't game for showing off their gams? The slit is cheeky, it's almost hidden when you're standing still. It's also not placed too high or cut too wide, so you're never in danger of revealing more than you intend. Which I literally do all the time, because I am equal parts tall and clumsy.
I originally wanted to wear heels with this dress because it is a sweeping style, but caged flats had to do in a pinch and I think they worked out just fine. Plus, my feet didn't hurt which was pretty cool. If you're dressing it up for an event, go with nude heels - it will make the silhouette of this dress even more graceful. You know, if you do ever end up at one of those outdoor most-dry-and-hot-part-of-summer weddings people seem to love. Then the slit can do double time as a vent too. I love versatility.
