What was supposed to be a quiet August of house-cleaning and project productivity has turned into quite the busy month. Non-blogging life has kept me pretty distracted lately. Sean and I spent all day Sunday cleaning the bedroom and reorganizing to move in a giant TV armoire that his mom gave to us. I am so, so happy with how everything looks now. I look forward to sharing photos with all of you when we have a few more decor items put up.
Today's post features a lovely black and ivory floral number from Lucie Lu via Gwynnie Bee. This print felt very vintage country to me. With it being on the shorter side, I felt like a sexy country girl frolicking in the outdoors. Read on for my review...

I've had great luck with Lucie Lu items, even prior to ever joining Gwynnie Bee. (You can see previous posts about Lucie Lu items here.) While I do find a lot of dresses to be a bit short on my 5'9" frame, I know a lot of you petite gals will feel right at home with the length. The model on the Gwynnie Bee site makes this dress look easily five inches longer. I am wearing this dress in a 3X, which is a pretty spot on fit with no shapewear. It was fitted but skimmed the right areas. The poly/spandex material of this dress is very light and flowy. It didn't feel too warm or binding in this summer weather.
I particularly loved the bust-enhancing knot and three-quarter sleeves. It was such a simple dress that made me feel pretty, sexy, and romantic in a very rustic way. haha Does that make sense? I styled it with simple accessories like my nude wedges and graduated rhinestone necklace.
