Why Wrap Dresses Are Universally Flattering

Why Wrap Dresses Are Universally Flattering

If there’s one type of clothing in my closet that I go to time and time again, it’s the wrap dress. From knee length, to midi, to maxi, I’m ALL ABOUT a wrap!

On curvy girls, a wrap is a great piece, because for a hourglass frame, it highlights your smallest portion, but balancing both the bust and hips.

See below for reference and if y’all would like a post on my current fave wrap dresses, let me know!

Fall Transitions

Y’all.

We are well into September now and I for one am so excited to transition to cooler tones and sweater weather pieces!

Now we are not there (by any means) yet for sweater weather, but dark florals are a perfect place to start.

I absolutely love this pleated skirt and thought it was so fun to pair my beloved Gucci belt with it. I love mixing high and low end pieces for a pulled together look.

Sometimes we get down, am I right? Could be a bad day at work, could be a fight with your best friend, could just be waking up on the wrong side of the bed.

Sharing y’all’s tips from Stories a few weeks back for when you’re having a bad day:

  • Make a list of things you did well
  • Do something kind for someone else (acts of service – put kindness out into the universe)
  • Enjoy a glass of wine and get to bed early
  • Treat yourself – from a chocolate shake, to a massage, to a new pair of earrings, treat yourself to something that will put a smile on your face!
  • Call your mom (or best friend) – there’s nobody that knows you better and sometimes just talking out what’s bothering you with someone who has your absolute best interest at heart is calming
  • Get outside and get your blood pumping. Go for a walk, a run, a cycling class. Release those endorphins, girl!
  • Take a hot bath
  • Pray
  • Write a journal entry of all the things you’re grateful for
  • Turn on your favorite song and D-A-N-C-E

I hope this list helps you if you’re feeling down or need a pick-me-up.

Create your own sunshine, friends!
