POP OF COLOR!

New dress!  

I have never owned a dress this long before!  Well, you know besides my wedding dress and prom dresses.....


Most of the time I stay clear of long dresses since I am only 5'3 I don't want it to seem like the dress is wearing me instead of the other way around.  I could not resist buying this dress though!  The instant I saw it I knew it had to mine!  


Thankfully they had one left in my size!  It's actually from Kohl's!  Surprising, huh?  


I thought the floral print and color was just gorgeous! 


And it fits so comfortably which is great!  It's so nice and flowy.  It also even has pockets!  Kohl's was having a big sale and I happened to get an extra 15% off the sale price too!  So originally the dress was $60 and I got it for $32.  Not bad!   


 I paired it with my brown high heels.  I needed the height since the dress was a bit long without the heels.  

What do you girls think??  Do I look ok wearing a longer dress?  Does it look like it overwhelms my body?  I hope not!  I plan on wearing it to one of the upcoming weddings my husband and I will be attending in early August!   Do you think it's suitable for a wedding? The first wedding is outdoors for both the ceremony and the reception.  The second wedding is outdoors for the ceremony but than indoors for the reception.  Oh, I love attending weddings, it's such a lovely sight to see!  


Well, that's all for now, sorry it was a big gap between my last post and this.  There's so much going on right now with my little brother these days.  He's 18, so he isn't super little, but I still have the sisterly urge to wrap my arms around him and somehow make everything better, but yeah, it's been a very devastating last week.  Hopefully things only get better from here.  Sorry to bring you down! 

I really hope you girls have a lovely upcoming weekend!

Hi gorgeous girl! Okay, maxi dresses are my favorite length this summer. I think this dress looks sooo pretty on you, plus the color and print and lovely! I don't think it overwhelms you because it's fitted on top and it's not too big or baggy. And dresses with pockets are the BEST! It was a good idea to pair it with heels I think :)

It will be great for a wedding, especially if you add a few accessories. I know it's a bit much but I would wear it with an ivy headband or something :)

I'm really sorry to hear about your younger brother. I understand how hard it can be when your family members are having a hard time! Stay strong Tasha!

I'm 5'2", and I wondered the same thing about long dresses. I have one long dress, and I think I'm able to pull it off. :)

You look great in yours, and I do think it's perfect for an outdoor wedding! Great find!

Sherin said...

You look so beautiful. The dress definitely looks amazing on you. I'm quite short, so I'm scared of wearing long dresses for the same reason as you. But you ulled it off so well that I'm going to have to give it a shot now.

Oh no: sorry to hear about your brother. I hope everything picks up and tuns out for the best!

This dress looks so good on you! It actually reminds me of Marimekko dresses. Hope everything with your brother comes ok!
