One Swainky Couple: All White A-Line

Wednesday, August 16, 2017

All White A-Line


K: Last week, I posted this blue lace dress from Cuddy Studios and explained how I was still getting wear out of my summer items. A few of you left a comment stating that it was refreshing to see a true summer outfit, rather than something for fall. It got me thinking about how the blogging world always has to be one step ahead. We're in boots before October, shooting Christmas looks in October or early November, and constantly striving to be one step ahead. The last few weeks, I've been doing the opposite. I'm savoring every last day of summer before my school year gears back up and I have to shift my perspective back to teaching. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited; however, I've come to appreciate each day for what it is instead of always looking ahead. 




K: I didn't mean for this picture to come out looking so "picture perfect" and I'm laughing to myself right now because on most days, I feel anything but perfect. You may have noticed that we've been including more posts where it's just me in the photos and I wanted to take a minute to explain why you'll continue to see this. 

Brandon is amazing and I cannot sing his praises enough. Truly, this blog would not be here without him. While he is still very much a part of the One Swainky Couple, his schedule isn't always as free as mine, especially in these summer months. Even as we begin fall, we're going to continue to post once a week with just me, showcasing an outfit. I have the time and I love the writing, whereas Brandon's work days are longer and the writing isn't always his most favorite part of the blog. So just a heads up for the future: we're going to start featuring "Katherine" posts on Wednesdays and keeping Monday and Friday as the two of us. And who knows, maybe a "Brandon" post will pop up on a Wednesday every now and then :)


K: This top was gifted by Cuddy Studios and I am obsessed! The subtle print, the lace up tassels, the sheer fabric...everything about this is perfect. I love the versatility of the top because it could easily be dressed down with jeans or tucked into a skirt to create an A-line figure (always my favorite). Since it is a sheer fabric, you'll want to have something appropriate underneath. I'm wearing this white bodysuit but you could do a fun bralette for a date night, or a conservative tank top for work. I linked a few items here that would all work as an undergarment for this top. How would you choose to wear it? 





On Katherine: Cuddy Studios top c/o, Free People bodysuit, Ann Taylor skirt (old similar here and also love this fun one), Banana Republic belt (similar here), Sole Society heels (under $100 and SO comfortable), Straw bag c/o, Target sunglasses, Michele watch, Kendra Scott earrings

*Thank you to Cuddy Studios for gifting this top. All opinions are my own.*

  4. I LOVE this look. All white is one of my favorite looks for summer lately/ I was actually feeling the same way about blogging and how we have to be ahead of the season this past weekend. I decided to shoot another summer look last weekend for that reason, since I'm not quite ready to give up summer yet.

  7. This dress is stunning! And I'm absolutely loving that you're embracing the present. It's still summer, and I love seeing summer looks. I'll love the fall looks when it's actually fall. Bloggers and retailers need to stop pushing future seasons so far ahead of their time. I'm not going to shop for sweaters and boots when it's 90 degrees outside, and I'm not going to shop for bathing suits in January. Our society needs to embrace the season we're in, and stop rushing everything away. Sending all the praises <3

  8. I don't blame you at all for savoring these last days of summer! We went back to school way too early this year, and it felt like we just didn't get a break. This dress looks amazing on you, and I love the way you styled it with the belt and those gorgeous heels.
