my new favorite dress

clip dot ruffle sleeve dress 3

Ya'll - can I tell you how much I love this dress? It's comfortable, the perfect length, figure-flattering AND I scored it for $20 this weekend. Other pluses: the skirt is lined, though the top is not (but I didn't find it to be see-through) and the ruffle sleeves are so dang fun. The only thing that would have made it even more perfect would be if it had pockets.
I mentioned on Instgram that the top was pulling a little bit when I tried it on due to my huge breastfeeding tatas, but I fixed it with a small safety pin. If you don't want to poke a hole in your top, I found a few fixes on BuzzFeed.

It's 100% cotton, which sometimes can wrinkle, but these photos were taken during my lunch break, and you can see while there's a little bit of wrinkling, overall the dress stayed nice-looking. It's on sale for $35 + an additional 20% off online (no code required), if you're interested. There's also a really pretty navy floral version that I might just have to add to my closet.

I swear I'm not trying to sell you my dress, I just love it so much that I wanted to share. I think it's the perfect postpartum dress - forgiving in the tummy, a flattering fit, feminine and made me feel confident and pretty. What's not to love about that? :)

  1. Well, this is lovely on you! What a pretty silhouette, but with some fun extra details (especially when you add those great bow flats!) - definitely led me to click through to Old Navy and add it, plus a bunch of others (oops) to my cart. I'm craving spring so badly!!

    1. You should come to Florida. It's full-on spring here! I believe today it's supposed to hit 75 and we had temps in the 80s last week!

  2. That IS a cute dress. Very flattering on you - you look great!
