If you read my Firework Kisses  post, you would know that my boyfriend shot photos of me during our "little get together". And these photos are the ones he took. I'm pretty sure I always say this when I edit new "fashion pictures" but these are my new favorite! I love the way the print of the dress pops out from the greenery. I love it when my boyfriend plays photographer; he's always trying new angles and I think it's the cutest when he gets into it. Which by the way, I think I'm finally going to invest in the Nikon D610. It's a big investment, but I'm curious to dive into the world of full frame cameras.

I'm all for a little black dress but like most, I love a little white dress for the summer. It definitely makes you look more tan than you actually are....life tip for us pale girls! I've always admired girls that wore  off the shoulder dresses. I personally steered away from the whole smock style though  though because I feared it would smash my small boobs down and make me look super flat. To my surprise, it doesn't look that bad. I'm actually in love with the fit. It's incredibly cute on and I feel so darling in this flower dress.

After we took these pictures, we headed straight to a fancy steak dinner. My boyfriend commented that he looked out of place because I was "out dressing" him. I honestly thought that is khaki shorts and nice black athletic shirt was fine though. He did compliment my dress though as soon as he saw me in it. So bonus, this dress is boyfriend approved!

I tried out the "instagram bra" aka the sticky bra that laces up in the front. For $6, I thought it was worth a shot. I was hoping to wear it with this white dress, but I was disappointed. It didn't stay in place right and did not offer me the cleavage I was hoping for. My other sticky bra does a much better job. Oh well! At least I can say I gave it a shot. 

I must say, I felt "hot" wearing this on date night. It was perfect for our steak dinner. And later that night we walked around downtown, and even took a romantic sunset walk around some fancy homes. 

Note to self..... Don't wear you hair in a bun all day, and expect your hair to look good for photos later on
You know those outfits you have that you pretty much only wear them once, and that's merely for a photo? Well this dress is certainly not one of them. I've fallen in love with it. I'll be sure wearing it again!
