Winter Fashion- Swing Dress

Winter Fashion- Swing DressWell this was a fun photo shoot! I was hoping to get these pictures taken before the snow started but as you can see, that didn’t happen.

I have worn this swing dress from Old Navy before but it’s such a comfortable dress, I could wear it everyday! This dress is out of stock but there’s a spring version.

Winter Fashion- Swing DressThe spring version of this swing dress might make it to my spring series starting on March 1st. I’m really hoping the weather improves in the next few weeks!!

Winter Fashion- Swing DressOne thing that some of you have told me about this style dress is it can look maternity, especially if you are busty. To create a more structured look add a jacket to your dress. The swing dress would look cute with a denim jacket.

Winter Fashion- Swing DressI’m wearing black ponte pants from Nordstrom. They are comfortable and I will wear them with long tops for spring and summer. They’ll be cute with sandals too.

Winter Fashion- Swing DressSo… I used bobby pins to pull my hair back and we took a close up picture but my hair was so full of snow I thought I might better save a close up for another day.

Winter Fashion- Swing DressSpring is coming, right??

  1. Cyndi, I just wanted to mention that your readers might check out their local Old Navy store for this dress. I ordered a gray one (in tall) like yours when you first styled it. Two weeks ago I saw three of these dresses on the clearance rack at the store near me. Someone might be lucky and find one if they’re interested!

  2. Good morning!
    Here in NC we have snow as well! No school yea!
    Love the dress. I have something similar that I wear but it tends to cling to my leggings.
    Enjoy the snow!

  3. I thought it was hilarious that you mentioned “maternity”!! My first thought when I saw this in my email was…”I had a top/dress like that once and all I ever heard was ‘so when are you due?” 🙂

    It looks fabulous on you! You can carry it off without the pregnancy comments, for sure!

  4. You look fabulous. I think your hair looks terrific pulled back.
    In Virginia we are having lots of snow. Six or seven inches. I am so ready for spring. Looking forward to your post.

  5. Hi Cyndi,
    Great Beauty for the Heart this morning….
    Love the swing dress, You look gorgeous in it as all your outfits!!!
    I am looking forward to your Spring fashion show….
    I’ve already started collecting some Spring clothing.
    Hunting a pair of white jeans now to pair up with a new blouse I bought from Simply Noelle.
    Hoping you style some white jeans or capi pants in your spring collection!! 🙂

  6. You look fabulous, love the boots especially! The snow is so pretty!! I live in AZ and it’s been extremely warm (hot)……reaching 90 this week. Too much too soon, I can’t even wrap my head around snow right now, but I’m thinking I would like it. As they say, grass is always greener……lol.

  7. Well girls, it’s 68 here on the Gulf Coast! Glorious sunny morning!Just returned from a long walk with Phoebe, my KC Cavalier. The rain is supposedly on the way . I love this outfit Cyndi💕

  8. We have freezing rain in Knoxville right now -ugh! Really brings everything to a halt. So glad today is a holiday and no work – yippee 😃 The jacket over the dress is a great solution cuz I’m one of those girls.
    Question about the boots – do they run true to size? Hey are out of stock at Macys but I thought I’d try to find elsewhere because I really like a wedge.

  9. Hi Cyndi,
    Just wanted to let you know some products I think you will absolutely love! I was at Macy’s and the lady helping me at Chanel had the classiest look. She is in her mid fifties, and her eyes looked amazing!! I bought what she was wearing, and I am so shocked by the fabulous results, I wanted to tell you. A lot of companies promise, but cannot deliver…this does!! I have really short eyelashes, but this really does make them look long! It’s incredible.. here are the products: Baute’ s Cils nourishing mascara base; Le oume De Chanel Mascars 10 Noir and LeCrayon Khol intense eye pencil in Black Jade. Check them out; I am sure you will love them!!
    Thank you so much for the time you spend shopping and picking out such lovely outfits! I truly appreciate your taste in clothing along with your honest, sincere way!!

      1. Oh my goodness! For a teacher, I did not spell the items correctly!! OMG! I was in a hurry…here is the correct spelling!: Beaute’ Des Cils base mascara; Le Volume De Chanel mascara 10 Noir. Le Crayon Kohl penci Black Jadel. She uses Vita Lumiere Aqua foundation in Beige 30. Thanks again for all your hard work shopping!!!

  10. I love the dress, and you look beautiful! I like the idea of the ponte pants for summer with sandals. I hope you weren’t too cold. The snow gave the pictures a charming look.

    Have a blessed day!

  11. Love this outfit! Looks so cute and comfortable! I also need to look at the Spring version. The snow looks so pretty in the pictures! Have a great afternoon!😊

  12. Love your blog, it always sparks my own creativity with my wardrobe. I’m only 5″3″ , and swing style doesn’t work even with a denim jacket. I appreciate how cute it looks on you, but short with hips and bigger tighs doesn’t lead to an attractive look. Lol, one must be realistic about their shape. Darn if only I had a leaner lower torso. You wear swing style well! Way to go!

  13. Cyndi, I think the snow adds a special touch to the photos. Since we don’t really get snow in GA, I love seeing it. I really like how you styled the outfit! I’m amazed how good the pointe pants look with the swing dress. I saw a cute swing dress in front of a little boutique we passed today, and am hoping I can go check it out. We are expecting thunderstorms tonight, unfortunately.

    Have a blessed day!

  14. I love this dress ,so versatile! I wish I had bought it 🙁
    The snow makes such a magical backdrop for your photo shoot, although I don’t know how you did it without a coat on. Have a Marvelous Monday!

  15. I have this dress too!! I love it too! So comfortable! Did you happen to have any problems with it shrinking when you washed it? I put it on to wear to church yesterday after washing for the 1st time & noticed it was a little smaller & shorter than I’d remembered. Wondering if anyone else had noticed any shrinking! I wore mine w/black footless tights, a bright pink scarf, and silver bow flats yesterday – it was my stab at looking festive for V-day!

  16. The dress looks so pretty on you! I tried it on around Christmas and it felt really tight on top and too loose in the body. Made me look pregnant, which would be a miracle since I’m 54 and single! LOL Love your blog.

  17. Can’t wait for the spring clothes, we are going to Hawaii end of April, and I am going to need help on what to wear!!!

  18. Cyndi, you look so cute that you inspired me to order the same dress in black and in gray. I am “not” one of those girls you mentioned, plus I am over 50, so I think I am pretty safe in assuming it won’t look maternity- like on me. LOL! Snow and now icy rain here. C’mon Spring!!

  19. Cyndi,
    Love the snow!!! Love the dress!! Readers may be interested to know the tall short sleeve versions are available online for $14 (woohoo!) if using the promo code “WOW”. I just hope it looks half as cute on me as it does on you!

  20. Haven’t touched base in awhile, but I always love your posts. This is a great outfit. In a couple of pictures the tights look like they have polka dots, which would be really cute, don’t you think? Thanks for always making me smile.
