The Little {Blue} Swing Dress

I hope everyone had a great last few days! I was definitely one lucky-lady this weekend. My husband came home from a month-long class in Rhode Island and then we were reunited with our youngest pup, Kingsley. Kingsley had been in training for 21 days! I am so happy to have ALL of the family together again and also get to share my favorite fit from my eventful weekend. I also am listing possible alternatives, to this look and where to find what piece. Fair warning, Tman had to make another appearance. Below↓ is this week’s OOTW!

{Advice & Additional Info}

This dress is super fun and versatile. My advice is to keep your accessories simple. The dress already has a great pattern and color, so don’t wear any large, flashy earrings or a huge handbag. I also like adding a pop of color, while staying within the same color scheme ~ pastels. If you look close you can see that the dress has small splashes of light-pink, I wore a pink cross-body bag (similar to the Bombe Clutch in Dress It UP↑) to bring that color out. This weekend I wore this outfit to a couple of daytime meetings and to pick Chris up. I have to look cute since he hasn’t seen me in a month! Anyway, please leave any other suggestions below and I hope you all have a great  and productive week!

Love,

M&MJ

Yes, I have a Macarons recipe book. It is a love and obsession.
