*Will this Target dress work on your body type? All my outfits emphasize flattering an apple shape -wider shoulders/narrow hips. In this picture I am 5’1′ 140lbs.  I am petite and also have a high waist and short torso.


I’m obsessed with black floral dresses. I scored this one at Target.

I either like small busy prints throughout or larger floral leaving a lot of black space.

I wear all my floral dresses with a fedora to make it look more casual. Adding a masculine element like this straw fedora keeps it from looking too over the top girly. I try to get my hats in the men’s section. Here’s a similar one to what I’m wearing.
