What I'm Wearin’……Dresses
One wardrobe staple that I really love is dresses! I rarely get the opportunity to wear them unless I’m going out somewhere nice. I work in a prison and our Warden doesn’t want the ladies wearing dresses- at least not dresses that I’d be caught dead in. What a bummer! Anyway, can you believe I used to NEVER wear dresses?! I never thought I had the body type to pull them off. Thank God I got over that! Now I’m in love with them and they are my “go to” item whenever I’m going to hit the town!
I wanted to share with you guys some dresses that I’ve been eyeing lately!

Check out this beautiful floral peplum dress by Anna Scholz for Marisota priced at $120. Peplum has been one of my favorite trends this season and so many bloggers have been showcasing it beautifully. I only have one peplum look but I really fell in love with this feminine cut.

This is one gorgeous dress. I don’t have the shape for it. I’m a hardcore apple shape. lol But, if I could pull this look off I would. It’s more for an hourglass shape. This beautiful dress comes from Lane Bryant for $74.95.

One thing I love about this dress is the sleeves. So many plus size dresses are sleeveless which I cannot understand. Many plus size women are notorious for not wanting to bear their arms. So, when we find a great dress, we also have to find a great cover up or jacket and that is so annoying. This little number from Torrid comes with sleeves so all that extra shopping is unnecessary! It retails for $29.99! What a deal!

Another trend that has been here for quite a few years and doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere anytime soon is the maxi dress. They are so comfy and chic. No wonder they are here to stay. This is a great one from Kiyonna for $138.00. It even has sleeves!

Another one of my faves out of the maxi dress trend is this maxi dress from Roamans which retails for $44.99. It has a nautical look that showcases another popular trend which was all over the runway this spring, the Jailhouse Stripe. This dress looks so cool and stylish. I wish I had it when I went to the beach this summer!
Until next time…
