Last 'Shift' before Fall featuring ASOS CURVE Shift Dress with Ruffle

Hey everybody!! How are y'all doing? I have really missed you guys. I had so many hopes for my blog this summer but ya girl has truly been busy with work and school. While I've had a lot of time to go out and take pictures, most of them never seem to make it to an actually post... well no further than Instagram. Please forgive me because I have honestly turned into a basic Instagram model. But fret no more... I just had to bring you one more summer blog post before fall hits.

If you've been keeping up with my photos on Instagram you will quickly notice that all my post have been dresses. There have been a few rompers and jumpers in between but mostly dresses. I really didn't notice it until one of my readers asked me if I wore anything other than dresses lol... I guarantee this was not on purpose. In retrospect I wish it would've been because then I could've possibly done a blog series on dresses... but oh well.... I promise this will be my last dress post... I think lol

Truth be told I've always felt more comfortable in dresses. I know it's ironic that this former tom-boy actually prefers dresses and skirts, but growing up I really had no choice. I went to private school until middle school and the uniform for girls was either a dress or skirt. I believe around the 5th grade they made some shorts for us, but back then you really couldn't pay me to show my legs... and I don't remember the blue, yellow and orange plaid shorts to be very flattering. But beyond being forced to wear them in school, dresses and skirts are just comfortable... especially in the summer.

As you know it can get hott down here in the South and dresses are as breathable as it gets for me... During the summer I prefer shift dresses over the usual maxis or fit and flares. The design of shift dresses basically allow the dress to flow away from your body. This is very important during those hot summer months because there's nothing worse than clothes sticking to you on a hot summer day with Georgia's humidity. I fell in love with this ASOS Curve Shift Dress!! As soon as I saw it I knew it had to be mine. I absolutely love the texture and feel of this dress. The dress is well-designed and the ruffles are an added bonus of femininity. And as if you could ever have too much pink, I paired the look with some old flats from Old Navy and my new purse I received at AKA's 67th Boule that was held here in Atlanta, Ga. I promise it's the bags that keep me going each year.

So what do you guys think? Are we loving this look? I promise I will try to do a better job of posting more looks for you guys. I have a jean series coming up soon so be on the look out for that. See you guys later!!
