{outfit} Zanzibar

I wore this outfit last week to go hang out at home.  I had to pick up some mail and figured I could get a free meal out of it. I didn't miss my family or anything ;) (I see them every week so that's basically true, though I do miss seeing them every day.) I also decided to be a weirdo and take some pictures with a plastic ball, what can I say, I'm strange.

The problem with this dress is that it's so shapeless I can look like a short frump.  So I decided to belt it up top to try to elongate myself. I still prefer the first time I wore this, so I'll probably wear that again before it is no longer appropriate to wear this dress.

  14. Haha, families are always good for free meals! I like the dress and don't think you look frump, but belts are always good for adding some shape anyway. The pattern is too cute not to wear it. :)

  15. Love it!! That skirt is gorgeous :)


  16. the accessories add to the total outfit, which goes really nice with the dress. I like the pictures with the ball - it's unexpected!
