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!


  1. you look gorgeous! (maybe she'll let you keep the dress!)

  2. That is a cute dress. It reminds me of Minnie Mouse, in a good way!

  3. Kinsey has some amazing pieces in her closet, doesn't she? You wear her red dress beautifully!

  4. This is such a great idea! And eco-friendly and economical I might say!
