OOTD: Strongman Swing Dress

 

Theres something magical about the circus with the amazing acts, exotic animals, and delicious sweet scents of cotton candy and caramel corn. The instant we saw the Blue and Black Stongman Swing Dress we were head over heels in love. We adore statement prints and this little showstopper of a frock is adorned with a festive vintage-inspired circus print that we just couldn’t pass up.

blue+vintage+circus+print+1950s+swing+dressTo keep the focus on the darling print, we styled the dress with understated tonal accessories like the Black Lady Lux Work Bag, the Pin Up Ankle Strap Gorgeous Heels, and the Light Blue and Tortoise Love Story Sunglasses. Finish the ensemble by adding a touch of volume to the dress with the Black Tea Length Petticoat Crinoline.

OOTD: Nautical Flair

 

Spring is almost here and we’ve been daydreaming about strolling along the boardwalk and spending long days at the beach with sparkling turquoise waters and bright golden sunshine. While the weather is still a bit too brisk for the beach, we decided to channel warm, sunny days with touches of nautical flair.
