Fashion Fridays: Black Leaf Print Summer Dress

Happy Friday!!

I can’t believe I haven’t done an OOTD post since June when I did a collab with my girls Hunida and Courtney! Wow! And before that my last “official” OOTD post was from April when I had done a Winter to Spring transitional ootd with Angela.

Gosh, I’m so bad at this lol. I know I had said I was aiming for two OOTDs a month, but man, it’s so hard to find the time to go shoot and also, where?! I need to go look for awesome spots for OOTDs. Also, Alex is learning to take photos so please give us a break ;D

Anyway, moving on to what you’re here for.

Sarah did a Must Have Summer Dresses post for her blog back in July, and one of the dresses was a gorgeous green leaf print boho dress. The print of that dress looked so similar to mine and she said to do an outfit post, so that’s my inspo for this OOTD, lol.

Here it is, Sarah!! LOL ;D
Also, thank you! ❀

I’ve had this black leaf print halter dress for literal YEARS! I bought it from H&M for about $20 USD or so. I love it so much from the beautiful black and white print, to how lightweight the fabric is, to how flowy and comfortable is.

I feel like anytime I describe an OOTD for you I always end up saying those words: lightweight, flowy, comfortable. But those are the kinds of clothes I like to wear. H&M has some of the most comfortable and chic clothes, I would shop there all the time if I could, and I know Sarah would (or does) too. πŸ™‚

This is one of those dresses that I cannot seem to let go of because I just love it so much. I wear it every single year at least 4 times in the season, and I think it would be a good Summer to Autumn transition dress as well, I just have to figure out what to pair it with. *Give me ideas y’all!*

EXTRA PHOTOS

I always take photos with CL because he’s just too cute!

Shout-out to my lovely husband Alex for taking these photos of me.
He’s the best and he wishes to get better. We just need more practice. πŸ™‚

  1. Loooove the dress, Rossy, it fits you so nicely & the pattern is beautiful! It does look really lightweight & comfortable which I tend to go towards, too! Alex did a great job with photos, go him!!! β™‘

    1. Thanks so much!! πŸ˜πŸ’œ
      Love the pattern too, when I saw it I was like “I gotta have it” and I never imagined I would still have it MANY years later 😁
      I’ll let him know you said that πŸ˜‰

      1. Those are the best pieces!! The ones that you can keep wearing & wearing year after year. ❀ He really did do great with the photos. I tried to have my boyfriend help me with my clothing haul post, but nope, I ended up just doing self-timer hahaha!

        ON A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SUBJECT: Have you seen the new BoxyLuxe & Ipsy Plus boxes that are coming out?!

        Liked by 1 person

          1. I wonder how much the Ipsy PLUS will be and how often they will send it out.
            The BoxyLuxe looks really nice! I hope Alex lets you get it!! Find a way to bribe him πŸ˜‰ it’s not every single month!!

          2. I’m wondering the same but it seems they won’t release any details until later this year. And yes it looks amazing, I ended up looking at spoilers (oh well!) Lol. But yeah, I want to try it at least once and then opt out. If Ipsy plus is cheaper I may give it a shot again, we’ll see.

          3. Will do! And idk if you already heard but Sephora is also adding two other programs to their sub! Play! Luxe for $25 and Play! Smarts for $20. I LITERALLY just found out because I logged on to my account lol

          4. I’m confused too because they didn’t specify in the site. I wonder if it still in the works and they’re just promoting it..how funny how these three sub boxes are doing some form of upgrade though lol

          5. What did it have? And is the Lola box only beauty? Or is it mixed? I can’t remember. Once I would really like to try is the POP Sugar Must Haves. They send home decor every once in a while LOL. A blogger friend of mine who used to be subscribed to it a long time ago got a freaking scarf πŸ˜€

          6. I think it’s mixed! Last time I got a bar soap but this month was all makeup. I hope to get the post up soon. πŸ˜› Isn’t POP Sugar Must Haves like $50 though?? I think FabFitFun is a great one for that price!

  2. Rossy you look like a queen! I think these are my favourite photos of you ever!!! And your hair, yessss this style is everything! I love that dress and I love H&M too! A lot of my clothes are from there. Also that last photo of you and Ciel is too precious! And Alex has done an excellent job on the photography… new career perhaps? Does he even need to improve? He’s so good already!

    1. Awh thanks Jennie!!! πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
      I style my hair the same way when I need to go out the door cause it’s easy lol. I like how voluminous it looks 😁
      H&M has some of the BEST clothes!! I love shopping there for Ciel too!! 😁
      Thanks so much, he’s been really cute this past week and very understanding 😊
      I’ll be sure to let him know you said that! πŸ˜‰

  3. My goodness girl, you are just gorgeous!! And the dress is gorgeous too, lol! I absolutely love the style, the black & white color scheme, and how flowy it is. I am definitely the same way with veering toward flowy and comfortable clothes haha.
    I’m not an expert by any means, but I think Alex did a pretty great job taking the photos and your poses were fantastic! OOTDS are hard. O.O
    Ooh and I agree, I think this would be the perfect summer-autumn transition dress maybe paired with tights, a sweater, and ankle boots? πŸ™‚

    1. Awh you’re too sweet!! ❀ ❀ xx
      Aren't comfy the clothes just the BEST?! And it's even better when they're cute and actually kind of fashionable πŸ™‚
      Yeah, he didn't do too bad for someone who doesn't take photos often πŸ™‚ and he actually suggest I do the pose where I'm sitting on the ground to show off the dress, lol.
      I do have tights but no ankle boots, I actually really want some wedges LOL. I'll have to figure out which pieces would look good. Thanks for the suggestion!! xx

      1. They really are, and like you said, it’s even better when they still look cute!! ❀
        Nice!! Way to go Alex! That was a great pose. πŸ™‚
        Wedges would work well! I have a pair of ankle boots that are also wedges and I adore them. They are my go-to for fall. I actually got them at Rack Room shoes for about $50, similar to these: https://www.rackroomshoes.com/cs/womens-boots-wedges . I don't know if you have a Rack Room store though?

        1. Those ankle boot wedges are so cute, I’ve actually been wanting a pair just like that for such a long time! Lol. I hope I find a pair at Ross or something. And I don’t think we have a Rack Room here, it might be like the Trend Shoes store we got at the mall.

          1. Ross can have great deals for sure! Oh, yep I bet it’s like that Trend Shoes store because ours is in the mall as well. πŸ™‚ If you do end up putting together a fall version of this outfit, it would be so fun if you did another OOTD! ❀

  5. Yes!! I friggin love these pictures; hair, makeup how comfortable you look and that dress 😍 .. And yes, I think around 90% of my clothes are from H&M πŸ™ˆ
    Also, this may be weird to say, but I feel like I can talk to you in a similar way I would my sister’s or friends IRL (not that I have any lol) but your boobs look great in this dress πŸ™„ lol 😊

    1. Awh thanks girl! πŸ™‚ And I figured you did, because most of the ootds you have posted you wear pieces from H&M, but hey girl, I don’t blame you! They’re comfy AF! ❀ I really wish I could buy all the pretty clothes from there lol. Ugh sucks being broke with no job 😦
      LOL thanks! I'm not sure how to respond to that haha, but since we're being so honest, I kinda like this dress for that reason LMAO
