Because I actually like this outfit. I feel pulled together and less pudgey than usual.

So yes, I am obviously in the Old Navy changing room in these pictures. Which explains the lovely pallor from the overhead lights. But regardless, I had about 20 minutes and was inspired by Adrien to go try on some dresses.
Which...no. NO NO NO. This dress is a darling print and I love the pleated detail on the bust, but god is it ever unflattering. NO.
Ah, that's more like it. Yes, I am copying Adrien, and hell yes, I bought this. I also bought it in the teal colorway, which I'm not entirely sold on. This dress is nearly too short in the waist and length but I felt pretty and I am clinging to that feeling.
