Hello, it’s me Bad to the Blonde. A pleated mini dress literally makes me blush. I feel pretty, oh, so pretty! (My high school best friend and I used to sing that.) And like everything I say <insert title of blog post>…pun intended.
Dress me up
I love dresses! There is no easier outfit to wear than a dress. Dress it up. Dress it down. Wear a short dress. Or wear a long. Am I wearing underwear? Only I would know. Another key point – bras are optional. Especially since most of the time they don’t work with a dress anyway.
This mini pleated dress in blush is one of my favorites and I can’t wait to wear it on a date! It was cheap (under $30.00 from Forever 21). It is simple. It is beautiful. Beautiful like a pretty blush – the color of this dress reminds me of a soft blushy blush. (That doesn’t even make sense!?)
Dress for the occasion
When I put this dress on (yep, I actually tried something on) I totally thought how perfect it would be to wear for a date night or first date, or even a casual white wine tasting. Clearly, being single is getting to me and I need to get out more…but at least I dress cute. Pun intended.
It has been over a year now since I broke up with Brandon and we went our separate ways. I haven’t gone shopping in a long time and a few months ago I went and stocked up on dresses that I could wear on dates. Or to Vegas. Or on a vacation. I’m trying to get out more.
A love affair
I want to wear this dress and blush. Literally. I want “him” to make me blush. Most likely, I will blush because I know that he knows that I know that I look pretty. Make me blush in my blush dress. Man I am dreaming…cue the music.
I just wanna run, I just want to run away with you
And live wide open
Set Em On fire, crazy like we used to do
It don’t matter where we’re going
Up on a mountain, down by the beach side
Till we find the love that we fell into
Hey, I just wanna run, I just want to run away with you
I just want to run away with you
I miss your midnight kiss and loving you all night long
This life’s like a rip tide and we’re barely hanging on
Caught up in the worry, and always in a hurry and losing what we’re all about
Lets slow it down
Take our love and get out of this town
Gets handed a rose and off to drinking wine in Greece. Wow. Fantasy. Day dreaming. Wake up Medin. SNAP! Back to reality, woman! Back to the outfit…
Simple dress. Simple color. Simply paired. Simply accessorized. Or simply not. Simple look. Because I like to keep it simple.
For once I didn’t wear any jewelry…not even a cuff. (Or a bra because the back of this dress just won’t allow for one.) Since the style is very flattering and the pleated look has a lot going on – I just focused on my shoes to dress it up a little more. These wooden heeled, gold zipped pumps are my my favorite. Even with a 4″ heel, I can rock them all night like a long night in Vegas. Believe me, it has been done.
