Getting Out Of My Comfort Zone

From time to time I like to be 'adventurous' and buy an outfit that is out of my comfort zone. I mentioned before what pieces I rarely buy and this dress is another example of that. Fitted and mini style? First thing that comes to mind is 'eeeekkkk'. But more recently I have been buying something out of my norm, and I've surprisingly loved it.

I'm not quite sure what got me loving this dress. Maybe because it is different? Or that I didn't think I could pull it off? Nevertheless, I felt good in this dress and it gave me a boost of confidence. Plus, for $30, what did I have to lose? If I didn't like it, I could always return it. I felt so good that I wore it a couple months ago for our two year wedding anniversary.

About This Mini Dress

Without a doubt, I loved the look of this mini dress even if I initially thought it wasn't me. I really think the light blue watercolor hues speckled on the dress are beautiful. The ruffles and asymmetrical style gives it character. Not sure if you can tell, but it has two strings so that it can wrap around the dress. They were extra long and so I wrapped it around my waist twice. I think the wrap style flatters the waist. The fabric has a slight stretch for comfort (yes!). Overall, I'm a fan of this feminine dress. By the way, I am wearing a US Size 4. Sizing on Boohoo can be confusing but I think I nailed it. I typically wear Size S or Size 2 for your reference.

  15. The colour is lovely and it's so nice that you're stepping out of your comfort zone. I tend to wear long dresses too, although I love wearing mini skirts and dresses in the winter with leggings x

  27. The color is so beautiful. I would give you an A with it.
    I have also been doing the same by buying a lot of dresses and skirts in my wardrobe now, where before I only had jeans in it.
