If you follow a lot of other bloggers, then I’m sure you’ve seen this dress more than a couple times and have heard how awesome it is. I was a little resistant to order it because I’m still carrying about ten pounds of baby weight from my last pregnancy that I keep intending on losing. 🙄 And the thought of wearing anything bodycon is not really at the top of my list, ya know? But a couple weeks ago Aaron and I were planning our staycation and knew we’d be going out for a date night– our first date night in a really long time. And I wanted a cute, affordable dress. So this little ruched number made its way to my doorstep. I didn’t even try it on for a week or two because I just knew it wasn’t to be for me.

But of course the moment I did actually try it out my mind was changed. The ruching is so flattering and made me feel curvy in the best way. It also just draped right over my tummy, which I love. And as flattering as it is, it is also comfy! It’s one of the comfiest tshirt dresses ever. Y’all are seriously going to love it for daytime and night out looks!

For everyday I’m loving it paired with a long cardi and booties. I think it’d also look so cute with knee high or over the knee boots too!

For date night, I made my look a little edgier. I threw on my fav moto jacket, some black booties, and a three-stone ring.

    It’s a great dress !I have seen it around a lot but I think it’s because it’s such a cute style and as you’ve shown here it’s so easy to wear many ways! I really like it with the leather jacket and ankle boots 🙂

    Thank you for the link up!

    I hope that you have had a lovely weekend! Warmer here today, which is nice after a cold week last week, but the rain is back which isn’t so good!

    I have this dress in black. It’s so comfortable, but I feel like I have to wear something on top of it all the time, it’s so bootylicious haha! I love the booties with it, will have to try that! Also, I totally bought one of your neautral lipgloss recommendations this weekend and love it. It’s a color I would have passed just by looking at the tube too. So thank you!!

      So true! I definitely am guilty of not trying certain things because I don’t think they’ll be “me”. This was such a pleasant surprise!

    I have been seeing this dress everywhere and did not think it was for me too because I can’t wear clingy clothes. The ruching style does make sense though! Love both ways you styled it.

    Just bought this dress in black after seeing soooooo many great reviews of it – and now I’m even more excited, with ideas of how to dress it up and down. Love the moto jacket look especially. (Also I might need the dress in gray too, you’re making me think….)

    I really love how you mixed this up! It’s a very nice dress, and I wouldn’t mind it even with my belly rolls. I also love that bad ass leather black jacket. It is just so cool and sexy.
