Swing dresses are my jam. I have this exact dress in 3 colors. No lie. Red, black, and grey. They’re just so easy to throw on any time and I don’t even notice that I’m wearing them. That’s a good dress in my book. Oh, and it’s only $37. That makes it’s awesome, too.




swing dress, utility jacket (similar here), jeffrey campbell booties, christina jervey gold cuff c/o

old bag (awesome similar bags here), lizzie fortunato necklace (similar), urban decay lips in crush




I’m laughing so hard here b/c it’s hot as shit here in Charleston and it was ridiculous that I was pretending to wear a jacket. All for y’all. But I don’t have to tell y’all that utility jackets are cool, do I?




Okay, so these Jeffrey Campbell booties. They’re my favorite bootie I’ve ever had. I’m in love. They’re the greatest little casual bootie, comfortable, pretty color (they come in black too), and are not 5 trillion dollars. Oh, and you can fold them down or leave them up, love a versatile look. I’m going to really dig these folded down with jeans this fall.




I wish that J.Crew sequin bag was still available, it’s one of my favorites. But I think this is a good substitute. But that Christina Jervey gold cuff is still available, it’s one of my most favorite bracelets. Goes with everything.





Like I said above, swing dresses are my jam. I also really like this high neck version and this floral print.

    IMO yes this pair rocks! I’m obsessed. They come in black, too, but I love the cognac best (love the color and more versatile). But the black is awesome.

  7. OMG I need these booties! Have you seen any similar ones in a slightly lower price point…say for a girl who just bought her first house but is still trying to pad her closet?

    I have the stripey version of the swing dress and it’s one of the best things that’s ever happened to me. I don’t know what it’s made of, besides magic…

  20. Becky says:

  26. I remember when you wore this dress to a Grit event. Love it. Red is your color my friend. I should probably buy one, I mean $37 its a no brainer, right?

  27. Liana says:

    Love the dress & booties!! I’ve never ordered from ASOS before, would you say the dress runs true to size? Thanks!

  28. Chassity says:

    Hey Liana – yeah i’d say this dress runs true to size. Shipping is free, so are returns :)

  29. Julie says:

    Your are hilarious! I love your comment on why you are laughing because I will be in charleston in two weeks and after almost a whole summer of crappy cold rainy weather in michigan I can’t wait to be ” hot as shit”! Oh. And I love your outfit!

  30. Chassity says:

    It’s hot and humid – leave your jackets at home ;)

  31. This is the perfect Fall outfit! That dress looks super comfy and would be the perfect replacement for my flowy dresses from the Summer. Oh, and love the boots! I’ve been eyeing them for a while, but was waiting some some reviews to pop up to see if they were comfy.

  32. Chassity says:

    They are delightful, Christine! Pull the trigger :)

  33. Ali says:
