Review: High Waisted Bikini and Gray Floral Pencil Dress

Hope you had a great week!  Not too many great sales this weekend however there’s still two days left to shop Nordstrom winter sale – lots of great markdowns.  Click HERE to shop the sale and refer back to THIS POST to see my picks!  Sharing a couple quick reviews today before they sell out.

ASOS PETITE Smart Dress with V Back in Gray Floral Print

Gray floral dress (00p) // Louboutin pumps (similar HERE)

Room details: Rug (buy HERE) // Pink tufted chair (matching bench HERE) // Gold sequin bow pillow (buy HERE) // Gold Ampersand (buy HERE) // Gold pouf // Dress Form // Gold Shelves DIY (similar shelving HERE) // Similar gold mirror // Polka Dot glasses // Eiffel Tower bookends (similar HERE) // Necklace // Ampersand canvas art (similar HERE)

This gray floral dress is TO DIE FOR.  It looks way better in person than it does online.  I’m in love with the floral print and the classic cut.  Sizing runs true to size on this particular item even though ASOS typically runs smaller than most US brands.  I’m trying on 00p and it fits me perfectly.  It’s fitted but not body-con and I can still move freely and breathe (lol).  These type of dresses are usually really hard to walk in because of the slim fit but this one is very comfortable.  I can walk easily without feeling restricted.  The best part – it has pockets and sleeves!  The material is a smooth polyester fabric – and very soft.  Love it and would recommend.

Gray floral dress (00p) // Bow sandals // Saint Laurent WOC // Loft faux pearl necklace (similar HERE)

This would be a great dress to wear for Easter!  You can also wear it to work (very professional) or a spring/summer wedding.  FYI – the hem is much longer on me than it is on the model (5′ tall) but I like the midi length.  Very classy and chic!

c/o Scalloped blouse (on sale, XXS) // J.Crew polka dot skirt (similar HERE) // Louboutin pumps (similar HERE)

This pink scalloped blouse is now on sale for only $35!  Sizing runs small so I’d recommend sizing up if you’re in-between sizes or have a larger chest.  I’m wearing XXS and it fits me nicely – sleeves are slightly long but not too bad.  I also have the black and white and would recommend both!

Kingdom and State bombshell blush swan high waisted bikini

c/o Blush swan bikini top (XS) // c/o Blush swan bikini bottom (XS) // Pink sunglasses (similar HERE) // c/o Tuckernuck blanket // H&M hat (similar HERE)

How adorable is this blush swan bikini?  I’ve been looking for a high waisted bikini and this one is too cute for words!  I love the retro vibe and the blush swan print is so pretty.  Sizing runs true to size and I have XS for both the top and bottom (sold separately).  If you have a larger bust, I would recommend sizing up and refer to Kingdom and State’s updated size chart.  This is my first high waisted bikini bottom and I’m really liking how it hides any tummy issues (great for postpartum).  If you’re looking for a modest bikini that has the look and feel of a one piece swimsuit, I would definitely recommend this one!  I love it to pieces!  Click HERE to see more options – so many cute items!  Also, I ordered this scalloped one piece swimsuit and it runs really small. I sized up to a 4 US.  Not sure if I’ll be keeping yet but just wanted to share.

ModCloth stripe it lucky skirt, mustard cardigan, Banana Republic madmen lace top, faux pearl necklace

See original post HERE or styled differently HERE and HERE.

I’m re-posting this outfit because this skirt is an all time favorite of mine – even after all these years!  It’s still available and under $50!  I get so many compliments every time I wear it and it’s held up nicely over the years.  Would highly recommend!

  12. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot
    about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    is excellent blog. A great read. I will definitely be back.

  13. Hi great website! Does running a blog like this take a lot of work?
    I’ve absolutely no expertise in programming but I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyways, if you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off subject however I simply needed to ask.
    Thank you!

  14. Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
    Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.

    start. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Many thanks

    you made running a blog glance easy. The overall
    glance of your site is fantastic, as smartly as the content material!

  17. Hey this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
    with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so
    I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  18. I am truly happy to read this website posts which includes plenty of useful information, thanks for providing such statistics.

  19. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Safari.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web
    browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Many thanks
