Blogger Swap: Kinsey's Red Dress

It's been no surprise that lately, I've been a bit bummed with my closet. So I was absolutely ecstatic when the fabulous Kinsey of In Kinsey's Closet announced that she was looking for bloggers to swap with for a week! She'll be styling a few of my favorite pieces and in return, she's sent me some absolutely gorgeous pieces of hers to style with my clothes this week! 

I literally squealed with excitement when I opened the box. Kinsey has incredible taste, and I can tell this is going to be one excellent swap. First up: Kinsey's red bubble hem dress! 


Let me tell you a little something-- I never, ever wear strapless dresses. Ever. I have it stuck in my mind that I absolutely cannot because I'm a bit-- ahem, blessed-- in the chest department. Getting to try on Kinsey's dress was the absolute perfect way for me to realize that I've been dressing based on a silly made-up rule for far too long. 


Maybe it was Kinsey's recent blue dress + yellow belt combo floating around in the back of my head, but I immediately grabbed my yellow belt + yellow flats and was super pleased with the way it all worked together. 


Kinsey sent me plenty of other goodies to wear this week, but I have so many ideas for styling this dress that it may have to make a repeat appearance at least once more during our swap week. Stay posted, there's much more to come!
