The Simple “Not Too Short” Swing Dress

Swing dresses. So simple but sometimes so hard to find the perfect one. I love a good basic long-sleeve swing dress in the fall because you can wear it SO many ways. Wear it with tights and a big scarf and coat in colder weather. Wear it with no tights and simple booties in warmer weather. Throw a vest over it to add some character. The options are endless. One of my biggest problems when finding a good swing dress is the length. I don’t like my dresses too short. OK. FINE. Call me modest but I REALLY don’t want to bend down and flash the people around me. No one wants to worry about that!

When I found this swing dress at Old Navy, I tried it on and danced in the dressing room. (If you know me by now, you know that “dancing in the dressing room” means I absolutely love it.)  It was the perfect length, fit beautifully in all the right places and came in a rack full of different colors. (AND it’s under $30!)  Simple basic swing dresses are good for any occasion. Wine tasting in Napa, a fall or winter wedding (wear tights, boots and a gorgeous fur scarf like this one here to dress it up), a bridal shower, a bachelorette luncheon, etc. You get the point. A simple swing dress that fits you in all the right places and isn’t too short should be a staple piece in your wardrobe.

I love dressing up a basic solid swing dress with a fun vest like this one. Vests are SO in style right now and there are so many fun ones out there that on trend and affordable. It gives the dress a totally different vibe and makes it look like you put a lot of thought and effort into your outfit. I’m also loving this vestthis vest and this vest here. Oh and you might want to add this super cute moto vest to your wishlist as well. 

Are you looking closely at these amazing earrings?! They are called ear threaders and are the newest design from Stella & Dot. They don’t have a back but just thread right through your earlobe. (You can’t even feel it!) They are SUPER lightweight and are just gorgeous in person. Perfect for everyday wear or for those upcoming holiday parties!
