    I chose none. If I had to choose, I would pick the 2nd version of your first casual outfit. I dont care for any of the dresses, sorry. I feel like the first 2 dresses show a lot of the chest area and I dont like the bottom two stretchy dresses. Do you have any other dresses? I’m sure you do in your closet : )

    I like the white Dress and the casual look 3. I feel like you could find a top that would photograph better, you have a lovely shape you should show it off!!!

    I like the style of dress #2 but that’s a lot of chest area showing.  I don’t like the looks with tights, it’s too hot for tights! Do you have a white cardigan you could wear with that dress?

    I like your casual number 1 look with the belt! I think that’s super cute! I don’t really like any of the dresses…sorry.

    I like casual number 3 the most but maybe add a pop of color with a cute necklace or earrings?

    thesummerangel:  I like casual style #1 with the belt, and dress #3 (I think all versions look cute, but if you don’t do the sash or the tights I would do a bold necklace, if you do the tights I might see how a bold pump looks).

    Dress 3 with sash/belt

    Casual 3 is close because it’s flattering your proportions, but I’m not sure how I like the tied shirt. The other shirts seem too long for your figure, so if you were to go shopping, I’d look for somethign that hits closer to your natural waist.

    Casual #1 is cute – as long as it doesn’t make you look pregnant from the side. Couples photos are a LOT of shots with you facing each other, showing you from the side.

    Dress #1 is cute! – but needs a iron. And what’s going on with the ties at your shoulders? Those would bug me in a photo. I agree with other PPs that it’s a lot of skin up top but would be cute with a cardigan.

    Dress #3 is also cute. Definitely more formal for a different look. I like it with the satin belt. I’d also go with more a heeled shoe – like a pump. (I’d also recommend some spanx. Not that YOU need it, but the dress does. It’s that kind of fabric.)

    Go with something simple and add a pop of color 🙂 All my photographer friends told me solid colors photograph best. I had panic moments trying to find something to wear… We ended up only getting two outfit changes because of rain. I did one outfit with a pop of red that was awesome, and the other was neutral. 

     

    I like the white dress… Its pretty for a garden!! 🙂 Then maybe just a simple top, and jeans. Add a pop of color with a necklace or the shoes.

     

    Here is ours..

    Hope it helps!! I had my Sister-In-Law help me pick stuff out. haha

    Casual 1 with the belt, but I’d wear leggings instead of the jeans because they seem a little bulky. Does the top cover your butt in the back?

    And dress 3 with the belt! Both are really cute!

    casual #3 is the best of the casual but you need something to punch it up some more. And I would wear a different shoe and prolly a different color tank. you need more contrast between the tank and pants.

    I like how dress 3 fits, but the color washes you out.

    I think you should buy all new stuff. Blue seems to be a nice color on you, so I would go that direction.
