Here are my three pieces – 2 dresses and a pair of cropped pants.

Sharagano | Chesapeake Dress in Rooibos Tea:  Soft chambray gets an eye-catching update in this vibrant orange shirtdress from Sharagano. Easy to toss-on for off-duty days, we love it with sneakers or a strappy sandal.

I paired this with sandals as suggested. The dress is super comfy and was perfect for the family dinner I went to. I liked the front pockets, but wished that they were a little lower or on the hips. My only real issue was the Mandarin collar. It wouldn’t lay flat and was a bit constricting when buttoned. I did try to belt this originally for a more tailored look, but it ended up being less flattering.

Style & Co. | Bungee Capri in Uniform Blue:  Cut in soft stretch cotton, Style & Co’s capri are urbane and effortlessly cool. Pull-cord cuffs and classic cargo styling lend it a utilitarian vibe perfect for off-duty days.

Sorry, but these pants were so unattractive on me that I didn’t take a picture. They fit on the waist and hips, but were very baggy on my butt and legs. Plus, the pair I received had a broken bungee on one of the legs. Not being able to adjust the hem made the pants look boxy and it shortened my legs.

Jessica London | Fit and Flare Scarf Hem Dress in Paint Stroke:  Item is currently not available from Gwynnie Bee (rental site, store, or outlet).

OMG!!! I loved this dress so much and really debated sending it back. I regret my decision because now I can’t find the dress anywhere. This is a chiffon dress with a scarf hemline. The top of the dress fit me perfectly and the skirt looked great when dancing (I wore this to some friends’ wedding). I received so many compliments in this and think that it could have been dressed down with a cardigan or blazer for the office.

My favorite part of Gwynnie Bee is that I get to try styles that are out of my comfort zone in the privacy of my own home and there is no pressure to buy anything. The other thing I like is that there’s no laundry to do afterwards, unless I want to wear something again. I can’t wait to see what comes in next month!
