Strongest Suit- Lulus.com

Lately I've been thinking about how a dress is probably what I feel best in. I feel lady like, confident, and beautiful. Ever heard the song "Strongest Suit" from Aida?? It's all about being a woman, and how a dress is our strongest suit. (ok... maybe it's not the best example... but it's stuck in my head...)

Well, I totally agree! What's better than wearing a dress that just makes you feel like a total lady? Nothing, I say!
(listen while you read)


This particular dress is the Freshly Picked Blue Floral Print Shift Dress from Lulu's. And well, I love it!

Dainty pattern, awesome sleeves, vintage look? Perfection.

And it's incredibly modest without adding lots of layers and covers.

This is the picture where my heels sunk right into the grass. Gotta love being a lady, no matter the terrain!

And while yes, I added tights, it wasn't for modesty purposes.

Is a dress your strongest suit? Do you have a favorite dress that gives you that womanly confidence?

P.S. I have a bunch of sponsor spots opening up soon! Grab your spot for September, today! Before they're gone!

This is a fun look. I love the patterened head scraf mixed with the print dress. And the tights give it such a fun vibe!

First off, that dress is lovely and you look lovely in it! Secondly, I think almost all bloggers are usually on the same brain wave. This morning, I was getting ready for work and couldn't find anything to wear.
Keep in mind that my "work" is an unpaid internship where I work out of a woman's dining room. It's not like I'm around people.
Usually, I'm alone. But this morning, I kept trying on dresses and skirts and it's because I'm yearning to dress how I feel, grown up. I'm in a closet transition phase. Most of what I own is either best for "scrub day/laundry day" or clubbing. I need a happy medium. I can't wait for a job where I get paid and can fill my closet with the dresses, skirts and blouses that I long for!

I can't wait to listen to that song either!

I love love love this dress!! You look gorgeous in it :) I definitely feel lady-like most in a dress, but I love a good flowy skirt (mostly because they are fun to twirl around in :)

i love your quirky style! that dress is so pretty with its print and i especially love how you paired it with the head wrap. i feel my most confident in 50s inspired dresses. i just feel so feminine and girly in them that it's hard to feel down or shy

becca said...

your headscarf is so perfect!

and, it's so true about dresses. I try to add them into my work attire here and there [barista], and I think I walk around more gracefully and stand up a bit straighter with them on. whatever does the trick!

Mel said...

Yes I have one, a rather simple black dress which makes me look like I'm way thinner and way taller (not a tall lady either lol). I love it and the day I can't wear it anymore, I will be really sad.

Melissa Jane said...

I can't ever find dresses that cute and modest that are affordable! I love it!

Olivia Carter said...

Gorgeous dress! I need to get more "day to day" dresses. I have a lot of church but some that aren't great for chasing small children around Target, you know?

dailydoily said...

Yes! I do :) I bought this navy Jcrew quarter inch sleeve dress that is my go to. Very mod. You look super cute girly.

Niamh said...

I loveloveLOVE Aida!

That dress is way cute! I love dresses, but always have trouble finding modest ones that are also affordable.

Jana Faith said...

Gentri, you are too cute! I love your dress. I keep wanting to wear a skirt to school and then I think about sitting on the floor with my firsties and can't bring myself to do it yet. I love the modesty of the dress too! Good call.
