everyday wear: swing dress.

everyday wear: swing dress.

the husband + I are adjusting to life in the suburbs. we’re madly in love with our first house + turning it into a home. (including all of the cost + stress that comes along with that). we have a fairly impressive list of items we must accomplish, but even more impressive what we’ve done so far. at least according to me. the biggest change has been our location. we’re no longer in the middle of downtown des moines. just a 5-minute walk away from bars, restaurants, and all the activity. (although there is a local dive we can walk to now). you get what I’m trying to say. so for the first time since we moved into our house (early april), we drove downtown on saturday morning to enjoy the farmers market and just wander.

I may never take off this swing dress! actually I may go back + buy it in every color. it feels like you’re wearing your husband’s oversized tee shirt, to bed. it was perfect for walking around des moines, in the hot (almost) summertime sun. it paired so well with a denim jacket, until the temperatures started climbing. then I rocked it solo. coffee in hand, of course.

    I totally did this with an ON peplum top. I have it in three colors! I recently tried on this dress in stores and loved it, so I ordered it up online with some sales and it should be here soon!

      if you find something that fits + you like it, really ..why not? I love that you tried this dress on too! It looks comfy, but then you imagine there has to be something wrong with it once you put it on. a “too good to be true” scenario. but it’s not! old navy for the win! hope you love yours as much as I do mine! what color did you get? 🙂
