Dress: c/o Sheinside, Sweater: Vintage (similar here), Heels: Aldo (old, similar here)

These days I have continuously put my femininity aside when it came time to find an #ootd, and instead opted for jeans and tennis shoes. Must be the comforts of marriage and/or the laid back environment that is Santa Barbara. In truth, I had not realized that I've lost my ability to look girly until the moment I put on this dress from the kind folks at Sheinside

At first I was rather uncomfortable. I seriously considered swapping the polka dots for holed pants, and heels for these sneakers, but I internally screamed "Michaela, NO!" then slipped on my favorite pumps. After a few steps in 4 inchers I remembered the confidence walking in a pair of heels gave me. I then looked down and noticed that my body was hidden by the movement of this loose fitting dress and recalled that the A-Line form was and is the master of subdued sexiness.

Let's just say, I got my girly back.
