Orange Swing Dress

Orange Pleated Dress Nordstrom @rachmccarthy7

One of my favorite colors this spring has been orange. I don't have a lot of it in my closet, but while shopping the past few months, I have been drawn to the color more so than normal. There have been a few dresses that I have almost bought that were this orange hue, but ended up deciding against it. Then I saw this flowy, pleated bright orange dress. I instantly knew it had to be mine!

Until the dress arrived, I was a little concerned about the length. Seeing it on the model and reading the length, it seemed like it might be too short. But, with the high-low hemline, I was optimistic. Although it is a little shorter in the front than I am typically accustomed to, it's a perfect fit! I am wearing a medium and I'm 5'8 for reference. Since I wore this look out to dinner last Saturday night, I styled the dress with gold accessories for a more dressed up look. 

I had been searching for a pair of caged gold lace-up sandals since last summer so when I discovered these a few weeks ago, I was thrilled! They are super comfortable for a high heel and I love the lace-up and back zipper details. I finished the look with this gold tassel necklace, which I'm completely obsessed with! I love that you can tie it different ways depending on your look. It was the perfect longer piece to wear with a relatively plain dress.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Not too much planned for us -- we were thinking about taking Ella to a dog friendly winery on Sunday, but it looks like the day could be a wash out :( Let's keep our fingers crossed that the forecast changes! See you back here on Monday, friends!

  1. Oh Rachel what an AMAZING dress and color on you. I am 5'8" too and many dress lengths are just too shirt these days. I think this, with its flowy style, is perfect on you. Plus you have those great tennis legs so it looks incredible!

  3. That color is so beautiful on you, and I love that it's a swing dress too! The pleats also add a little something extra to the dress as well. I also think that the gold accessories are perfect as well! That's a bummer about not getting to go the winery, but hopefully y'all can do something else fun this weekend!

  6. Is it weird that I always love hearing how tall people are?! I am 5'10" so it helps me figure out how short things will be on me which is a problem I run into often. Loving the fun color and swing fit of this dress on you.
