    I think the dress looks very pretty on you. I am wondering if the print will look outdated in a few years? It’s hard to tell. Although, since the print isn’t everywhere on the dress, maybe it’ll be fine. 

    Do you think you could find a completely navy maxi dress?

    ju5tdance:  I am in the same boat as you!  I dress up for work, but other than rare special occasions, FI and I are in casual wear.  I hate showing my legs too and self conscious about my arms, so I’m clueless as to what outfits we’ll wear for our shoot.

    Anyway, I just wanted to say that I’m glad you chose to wear pants and a cute top instead. Don’t get me wrong, I think the dress is super cute, but if you’re not comfortable wearing it, it’ll definitely show in the photos.

    ju5tdance:  The fit is nice, and the style is great but I think you would regret wearing that pattern. Your location sounds naturally very beautiful and I think something in this style in a plain colour or light fabric would look absolutely stunning on you. It might be a little busy with this pattern.

    I like the dress, but not so much for engagement photos. It shows a bit too much cleavage for my taste and I think something shorter would translate as more “fun” in your pics.

    ju5tdance:  I wouldn’t use it for the engagement photos.  I like that you’re going with something that you’re comfortable in and is ‘you’.  BUT!  I did want to say that dress fits you well and you look great in it.  I’d keep it for the summer.
