It was nothing short of providence when Tobi reached out about a collaboration, last month, during my shopping ban! Tobi very generously let me pick out a few items from their selection (anything I wanted?!?!) to review and keep. This dress is the first of three pieces and outfits I created from my collaboration with Tobi. Stay tuned for my other goodies, which I am seriously so excited about! And do yourself a favor and check out the enormous, trendy, selection of going out tops, basics, pretty dresses, and MORE that Tobi has available! 

I spent a looong time looking through pages of options that Tobi carries (#maximalist), but the Raina Lace-Up Shift Dress landed in my cart and never left. I'd only hesitantly dipped my toe in the lace-up pool before (with a pair of flats and a mock lace-up dress) because I always say the style never felt quite like me.

So, in an effort to embrace the lace-up trend more fully, I picked this dress! And you know, though it was a bit outside of my comfort zone initially, I really like it (a bralette underneath helped.) Really the only thing I have to say about it that's not a rave review is that the wrinkles you see in these photos (what wrinkles? You didn't notice them? Great!) came from 5 minutes with a seatbelt on. So just, be aware. Maybe have your steamer handy?

I love how romantic the silhouette is, AND I can see this dress transitioning to Fall so nicely! And yes, I'm dreaming about Fall already and can't be the only one. I can't wait to pair it with some OTK boots, a floppy hat, or a dark lip (or maybe all three!) so fast.

To be completely honest- I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of all three items I received from Tobi. With 50% off your first purchase, the Raina dress is $29 and totally worth it! I wouldn't mind getting it in "Toast" too! It's made of Rayon, and really feels like a thicker, high-quality linen (not sheer, doesn't cling!)

Miles & I stumbled upon this mural downtown- isn't it great? Thanks Miles! And thanks Tobi! Stay tuned later this week for my second outfit from my collaboration with Tobi.

Tobi provided me with this dress in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own!
