Wild Card Wednesday: Undercover BodyCon

I was planning this post for Sunday, but I was having trouble with my photos – for some reason, I was appearing orange in a lot of them so I had to play around with the lighting so as not to look like an Oompa-Loompa!!!  Photography is one of the hardest parts of blogging for me as I don’t have a ton of time to take pictures and I’m usually relying on the skill of my children!
Jacket:  Boohoo Plus (Available here)

The weather is a current set back to spring fashion, but I’m giving it my best!!!  This week, I am thinking about transitional looks and little black dresses.

Dress:  Forever 21+ (Available in tomato here)
Heels:  New Look
Necklace:  Eloquii (Available here)

For today’s look, I am trying out a bodycon dress.  I am not normally a bodycon gal – it’s just not a look with which I usually feel completely comfortable and I love flowy dresses.  I am not crazy about showing off my belly, and I have yet to find shapewear that fits me well.  That said, I decided to give it a go with the mental safety net of the soft trench coat.

To my surprise, I really loved the look with the trench both opened and closed and got a little bit closer to fully embracing my belly.  Unfortunately, the wind was not really cooperating, so most of my looks were with the trench closed as the jacket was moving everrrrywhere!

Glasses:  Valentino

Speaking of the trench, I had it hemmed, as I do with most pieces!  I felt like the shape didn’t really work for me when it was longer.  Having it hemmed created a more flattering shape AND showed off more of my legs which I love!

I finished the look with an oversized clutch from St. Louis-area designer Cameo de Bore.  The bag maintains my simple color palette, but it definitely adds a unique touch!

Are you a fan of bodycon dresses?  Do you wear shapewear?  Favorite brands?
