There are two things I love in a dress: black and swingy. A swing dress is so forgiving, especially after you have had a couple of kids, and a black dress is always so versatile. Black and swingy is the perfect pairing (especially when it is a cotton or blend) to go from day to night. I dress this look up with heels for an Easter brunch, but it could be as easily dressed down with a flat sandal for day to day. It's so comfortable I put it on and wore it all day, out and about, playing with the kids, and cooking.
The last picture is obviously my favorite. Anytime I'm taking outfit pictures Maggie is lurking somewhere in the background!
