Pink Skater Dress


When I was a little girl I absolutely loved dresses.  I was also a tomboy though, and I could always be found running around, getting dirty or climbing trees…while wearing a dress, patterned tights and shiny Mary-Janes.  Looking back, I guess it isn’t so surprising that I ended up going to West Point, joining the Army AND starting a girly-girl blog.  


I still love to dress up, and currently my favorite dress silhouette is the skater (fit-and-flare) dress.  It is nice and fitted at the top, and the fuller skirt is perfect for twirling (and very forgiving if you eat a filling meal…we did our wedding food tasting this day, and after trying so many rich foods I’m very glad I didn’t wear a super form-fitting dress).

My hair and make up look prettier than normal because I had my trial run for the wedding earlier that day.  Jen from Color Me Rad in Beaufort, SC is amazing!

This is actually how most of the photos end up (with me making weird faces) when I try to do fashion posts.  Being in front of the  camera is so awkward!
