What to Wear: Clovers All Overs

ModCloth dress, fit and flare, printed

Do you have a dress that makes you feel great when you put it on no matter what? It instantly lifts your mood and makes you walk with that extra little bump? This heart/clover printed number from ModCloth is that dress for me. I love the low back and exposed zipper and how the neckline is cut higher up. It's feminine and flirty and makes me have a teeny tiny waist. For awhile, I wasn't able to wear it because I had gotten too big but now I'm back in it - with room to spare.

I've worn this dress in the winter with tights and a sweater; in the summer with flats and not much else and as a skirt with the top folded under. It's one of those pieces that is timeless to me and changes with me and the seasons. I've had it for nearly 3 years now and it holds a special place in my closet. I love the print - it looks like little hearts that make up four leaf clovers. I've worn it on Valentine's Day to be subtle yet festive (I'm not one of those red and pink kind of girls).

This is my go-to hair when I'm feeling a little FONCY! Maiden braids are an easy way to elevate a look and while they look super complicated, they are SO easy to achieve (well, for me at least - I have a ton of hair to work with). Split your hair in half and make a braid on either side starting around your ear. Tie off each end with a small elastic then bring them up and over the top of your head. Use pins to secure and that's it! Some girls can do that loose, flowy maiden braid look but not this one...
maiden braids - so easy to do!

Belting this dress and adding a dainty necklace and simple pair of flats finishes off this look!

PS: This is what I used to look like in this dress. Quite an improvement, right?
