Adjusting Accordingly Attire

The first day I wore this Shein dress, my husband loved it. Not only did he think it looked cool, but he also couldn’t stop laughing because I had a woman sneakily trying to photograph this dress while we were walking to dinner. She was pretty sneaky, as I didn’t notice until my husband pointed it out. I should’ve turned around and just told her where it was from. Alas, introversion got the best of me, though. (I also didn’t want to embarrass her.)

This dress does look pretty cool in the wind, though, (but I don’t have to worry about wardrobe malfunctions) which was the main reason I ordered it. I’m adjusting my attire accordingly for the wind Sydney seems to have allll the dang time. The one day it wasn’t windy lately was the day I took these photos – go figure! Haha. It was in the 90s and felt hotter than heck. Fortunately, this dress breathes well and was perfect to wear on a hot day too.

The only negative I have to say about this dress is it’s a bit tight through the shoulders on me. Which is weird, because I don’t have all that broad of shoulders and don’t usually have issues with that. But I did size down when I ordered this dress because the measurements looked liked they ran large. (So, that was probably the reason it felt tighter through the shoulders.)

I also wore this dress for my dinner with Liana of Finding Femme last week! I’ve basically been wearing this dress nonstop since I got it – I swear I’m washing it, though (and it’s holding up well in the washer)! So, don’t get grossed out, haha. Anyways, it was so cool to meet Liana in person, after having followed her blog for years. She’s such a sweetheart, and I had an absolute blast hanging out with her for the evening! I promise, the next time we meet, we’ll take some photos. But for dinner, we decided to just enjoy ourselves. 🙂 (So, you’ll just have to believe me that it happened, haha.)

Have you ever met one of your favorite bloggers in person? And what piece in your wardrobe have you been wearing nonstop lately? Let me know in the comments!

Where to find it:

Dress: c/o* Shein
Wedges: ModCloth (Old. Similar here.)
Necklace: c/o Rocksbox
Sunglasses: Old (Similar here)

*c/o = courtesy of, meaning the company gave me the product to be used on my blog, and I did not pay for it. All opinions are my own, and I am not being compensated for a positive review.

I appreciate each & every share. Thank you!


  1. I agree, this dress is gorgeous! Perfect for a breezy day showing how floaty it is.. I have met a few blogger friends at a blogging convention which was fabulous. It’s weird when you meet in the flesh, but after as you read the blogs it becomes more personal. You can here what they are saying!

  2. This is really such a pretty dress and like how it flows specially with the wind 😉
    You look absolutely beautiful. It is always so good to meet the bloggers in real person.
    So glad you had a great time! And actually it was 80 here yesterday.
    It feels like Sept here in Denver. Have a great spring!

  3. What a cute dress! I love the pop of orange in it. These pictures are are great!
    I have met Sara in person, and a few people from Instagram (who don’t blog). It’s always neat when it gets to happen!!

  4. I loved the dress and the episode with the sneaky woman was funny 🙂 Yes, maybe she would feel embarrassed 🙂 But also maybe she photographed to sew a similar one, all maybe maybe 🙂 I think the photos are lovely and through internet we never really know the right size, but I am glad that despite it being a little tight on the shoulders, it is still OK! You look really beautiful, dear Lindsey! Hope you enjoy a very nice evening!

  5. Love your dress, and that is funny that you are now managing your wardrobe to accommodate the wind in Sydney!

    And then meeting an admired blogger, that is another subject all together. I have yet to meet a fellow blogger, as those I follow are mostly east coast or international, such as yourself. I meet other writers and we swap tips and contacts, but freelance writing is an entirely different racket for downloading. I am kind of wearing 2 hats at all times, and managing the back end accordingly. Even if you don’t have photos, it would be fun to get a round up of what you learned from her, or how she runs her blog differently, etc.

  6. What a lovely dress! I am digging the blocks of color and how it flows in the breeze. Love that there was a lady sneaking a picture of you – I have had that happen only a couple of times and it’s a bit odd if I spot it but meh, oh well. I suppose it’s OK, I know (or hope) it’s out of admiration and not ridicule. Le sigh.

    I have met a handful of gals I met in the blogging world and LOVE it! I made it a goal this year to do it as much as I am able and I hope to continue doing it next year. It’s so nice to meet each other in person after getting to know each other via social media and our blogs!

    1. Aw, thank you so much, Sara! And oh yes, that was my other concern about the phototaker…maybe she thought the dress was hideous and was taking the photo to laugh at later! Hopefully not, but you never know what’s going on…so, I just pretend I don’t see it. 🙂 And I’ve been following your blogger meetups – that’s awesome! I love that you and Jen have been getting together! She was the first blogger I ever met in person. 🙂

  7. This dress is fabulous! I love the colors and they look absolutely amazing on you! It’s such a great pick for a blogger-pal dinner, too.


  8. You look beautiful in this dress Lindsey! I love the colors and the way it flows. Perfect for twirling in! Oh wow, 90 degrees haha. That kind of weather seems so far away now. You’re lucky you get to wear your pretty dresses all the time now lol.
