I’m gonna cut to the chase – this is, without a doubt, the most magical dress to ever make its way into my closet. We met due to the unfortunate circumstance of another dress not fitting properly and needing to be exchanged. The other dress didn’t have more available sizes, so I opted for this midi-length dream of a dress, and I couldn’t be more ecstatic about it. I knew it was love the moment I pulled it out of the box. The material is so light and soft that it felt like silk in my hands. The print is dreamy and elegant, and made for summertime. When I slipped it on, I was thrilled to find out that it wasn’t too sheer, the straps were adjustable, and it was quite possibly the most flattering dress I’d ever seen in my life.
On my long-legged frame, this dress hits right below my knee, but it’s certainly anything but frumpy (for reference, I’m 5’6″ and purchased a size 2). Since it’s made of a thin crepe fabric, it’s not bulky in the slightest, and the material flows away from the body creating the perfect movement and chic silhouette. I’m also a massive fan of the slightly wider-rather-than-lower neckline, which flatters my … ahem … itty bitties. My only wish: that this dress came in an abundance of colors and patterns so that I could fill my entire wardrobe with it.
Where can you wear this dress? Anywhere! I really mean that. I did this shoot early on a Sunday morning with my blogger bestie, Stefanie (it was her first shoot since her beautiful new baby came, and it was so good to spend time with her again). We were close to my favorite cafe, so we stopped in for some lattes and macarons – which makes this dress very brunch-appropriate. It’s also fantastic for weddings because while the base color is white, the print covers enough to not draw eyes away from the bride. Got a happy hour event to go to? Wonderful! Slip on a pair of more colorful heels, add some chunky accessories, and you’re good to go. This dress is also appropriate enough for church, family dinners, or work functions (maybe with a sweater or cropped denim jacket). Last, but certainly not least, my boyfriend loved this dress, making it 100% perfect for date nights!
Now that I’ve given you a million reasons to swoon over this dress, go get it for yourself and let me know how much you love it too! It’s seriously going to be my favorite dress for the spring and summer. I’ve already worn it like three times since I got it last week!
