Flirty Red Summer Dress from Asos, NYC Fashion Blogger, Graffiti Wall Art, Wall Traveled{ASOS Dress (only $25, and it also comes in WHITE!), VINTAGE Straw Clutch, H&M Tassel Earrings, ZARA Sandals}

I simply could not resist this flirty red dress for my recent trip to Florida. The temps were steaming, and I sizzled in this cute little number. To be honest, I was a bit apprehensive about the cutout in front when I first saw it online. But I decided to take a chance, and boy did it pay off. I’m tempted to go back and get it in white. And who can blame me, since this dress is a whopping $25?!

About the Fit:
I sized up on this one to avoid any weird bulges in the cutout area and to ensure ample boob coverage (working with DD’s over here, lol). That worked out well for me, although I did wind up shortening the straps some (short torso problems). If you have a smaller bust (and a toned tummy), you can definitely order your normal size with no problem.

Red is one of my favorite colors, but I don’t wear it nearly often enough. Looking back at these photos makes me want to change all that, so I’ve rounded up my favorite flirty red summer dresses below.

Happy Shopping!

My luck with finding ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS dresses from Asos continues…

The colors and details on this dress are truly amazing, and it makes me so happy when I wear it. I wore this beauty in Detroit recently while visiting the family, and I truly felt like the belle of the ball. If this streak continues, I’m going to have to get a new closet!

I’ll know I’ll reach for this dress often when I have an event or just want to dress up for no reason (which happens pretty often, actually).

About the Fit:
I have a large bust and not much of a waist line (I’m a gal who loves her french fries, lol), so I ordered up a size to be on the safe side, but that turned out to be unnecessary. The dress came with a layer of tulle underneath that I removed myself, and I eventually plan to have the sides taken in to make it a bit more fitted up top. Those two small changes are definitely worth the effort, in my opinion. In general, I’d say go with your normal size and perhaps even size down if you have a small bust.

Obsessed with the Swimdress

My Style, Travel

{DANIFY Swimdress, H&M Striped Floppy Hat (old, similar here and here), BANANA REPUBLIC Button-Down Shirt, PRADA Sunglasses, ZARA Suede Slides}

Recently, my husband and I took a quick jaunt down to Destin, Florida for some fun in the sun. It was a short trip, but we managed to set aside an afternoon for ourselves to rent a pontoon boat and zip around the Chotawhatchee Bay for an afternoon. We couldn’t have asked for more picture perfect weather, and I couldn’t have accessed for a more perfect outfit than this adorable striped swimdress.

I have a drawer full of bikinis and one-pieces, but this was my first time trying out a swimdress. I used to think they were matronly, but now I’m officially a convert! This one is super comfy and flattering (plus it matches perfectly with my striped floppy hat).

About the Fit:
When you’re a DD cup, shopping for bathing suits (and bras, and button-down tops, and dresses, lol!) can be somewhat of a challenge. I ordered about 5 swimdresses on Amazon and wound up keeping two (can’t beat their awesome return policy!). This one gave me ample chest support, and I converted the straps to a halter myself for even more security. I usually wind up removing those little cutlet-shaped pads that come inside of bathing suit tops because they tend to move around a lot and cause more trouble than it’s worth. But these were actually pretty sturdy and sewn into the suit very securely, so I kept ’em in.
