Engagement Photo Dresses

My idea for our engagement photos was that we could have one nice, fancy look and one casual look.  I looked around myself and only found one dress I liked, and then I realized I could ask my Trunk Club stylist, Taylor, to help me out and see what she could find. I will tell you she did NOT see the dress that I bought before sending me the 2 she sent, she just nailed what I was looking for that well!
These are from my latest Trunk, which had 8 other items in it as usual. That whole review will be up later this week 🙂 If you’re interested in trying Trunk Club, use my link to use my same awesome stylist, Taylor!
After trying them all on and struggling with which I liked best, I thought I would throw it out to you guys to help me decide! Please leave a comment letting me know which is your favorite! Our photos are NEXT SATURDAY, the 24th! Which is also our one year anniversary 🙂
First, the dresses from Trunk Club:
Option 1: Whenever You Call Maxi Dress – $84, XS
This is veery sexy! It fit like a glove and Jake obviously approved. But I wasn’t sure if it was engagement photo worthy. I do love the open back detail and the mermaid style. It’s very flattering for sure. But the snugness also made me worry it’d be difficult to move around in.
Option 2: Bell Sleeve Maxi Dress – XS, $198
Oh, I love this dress. It’s beautiful! Chiffon is one of my favorite materials. The sheer bell sleeves are gorgeous, and the back! Oh my gosh the back. I love the little bow. I told Taylor if I loved a dress, I would splurge on it. This one being almost $200 was rough, though. And my biggest issue is the deep cut in the front. Jake said this was a Mortisha Adams dress, haha. I’m a big fan of keeping things modest, and I’m not sure that neckline would be appropriate for engagement photos that my whole family (and Jakes!) are going to see. 
And now, the dress I got myself:
Option 3: Awaken My Love Long Sleeve Dress – $86, XS
You can see how similar this is to the first one! Same brand and everything. I do love this dress. I’m covered for the most part with a pretty open back detail. My concern with this is the pleats at the waist aren’t flattering on my stomach, so I worry my stomach might look preggo depending on the angle, which I do NOT want! I’m wondering if I steam it if that’ll help.
Please share your thoughts so I can decide before next weekend!!

  • Happy Sunday! Currently enjoying my coffee in bed with our crazy fur babies doing laps inside the house. Looking forward to a productive day and getting ready for the week! Hope you’re having a lovely weekend ❤️ http://liketk.it/2EWCe #liketkit @liketoknow.it #danithomblog
  • The no white after Labor Day rule was obviously meant to be broken. I wear white jeans year round because they transition so well into every season! Plus, they make me feel fancier 💁🏻‍♀️ than normal jeans. .
We’re going back to the farmers market today and have a birthday party later which is a busy day for us introverts 😂.We’re also planning our next project for our bedroom because I can’t ever make up my mind 🙃 thank God Jake puts up with my indecisiveness. What are your plans today?? Outfit & sizing info 👉🏻http://liketk.it/2EV50 #liketkit @liketoknow.it #danithomblog
  • Seeing all these fall throwback pics on my feed gets me so excited!! Jake and I have this tradition that we go to this amazing place every year and get their Apple cider donuts and fresh made apple cider 🍎. I love it warmed up 🤤. We actually go back more than once because we can’t resist, but the first trip is always the best. This pic is from our trip last year and I can’t wait to go this year! We actually have a porch now so I’m psyched to decorate it!! 🎃 What are your fall traditions? http://liketk.it/2ETa4 #liketkit @liketoknow.it #danithomblog
  • If you watched my stories the other day, you’ll know I’m currently on a pajama set kick. Idk what it is about wearing matching PJs that makes me feel so put together 😂 but it’s definitely a thing. Don’t get me wrong, I still have some old t-shirts I wear with mix matched shorts, but I feel way better when I’m coordinated. Even just around the house. Anyone else?! These Avocado ones are old but I found a whole bunch of new ones! Linked here: http://liketk.it/2ERES #liketkit @liketoknow.it or through the link in my bio. #pajamasets #danithomblog
  • When I put this outfit on, Jake looked at me and said “You’re going to wear those shoes with that shirt?? Aren’t you not supposed to mix patterns?” My initial reaction was to explain that stripes and leopard go together and it’s a thing. Later I realized this comment means he actually pays attention to what I say about fashion! Kind of 😂. I feel like I’m slowly inceptioning him about clothes 😎 Has your guy ever made a comment like this?! How do you feel about mixing patterns? This is as brave as I get lol! http://liketk.it/2EPMP #liketkit @liketoknow.it #danithomblog
  • I live a life covered in dog hair but you make it worth it 😘🐶🐾 You’d think I only have one dog because Finn is always attached to my hip, but Oliver is attached to Jake’s. Double the fur, double the love ❤️ http://liketk.it/2EO8Y #liketkit @liketoknow.it #danithomblog
