    I voted for the navy tank with white pants and the fall outfit. They are both great outfits! Honestly, neither dress photographs very vell. They just sort of hang on you, like the dress is wearing you instead of you wearing the dress. Are you wearing a cardigan with the black dress? If so, maybe try taking it off or pairing the dress with a more colorful cardi or shawl for more contrast?

    @KDOS:  Much better! I think the drapey-ness of the cardigan was distracting. Maybe another, more form-fitting cardigan would work, if you wanted to be a bit more covered up. You could also add a wrap of some sort for cover and a pop of color or texture.

    I vote #1 or #7. Bright colors always look better in photos, and I think the white pants are bit fancier than shorts. (Love that necklace, btw!)

    @KDOS:  Don’t like the blue dress – it looks a little short and I think it makes you look a little heavier than you are – the Black dress is fabulous. I also don’t like the shorts for some reason.  The rest are all super cute (I voted 2, 6, 8)

    For some reason I’m really drawn to #3. Super cute and casual 🙂 But if your going for more dressy… I’d pick the black dress.
