When I first spotted this dress, I had all the feels. The flutter sleeves, the ruffled skirt, I had to have it. Just in time for summer, it’s accompanied me on many occasions.
I first wore it to church for a test run the day after I got it in the mail. It was - by far - the most popular dress I’ve worn to date. I definitely don’t get the same “Oh I love your dress SO MUCH” reaction when I wear my jeans and a blouse that’s for sure.
A week later, I wore it to work. I got complimented on everything from the cute seersucker detailing to the waffled fabric. While I initially thought this felt very high-fashion, the thing that was said most was how FRENCH it looked. And if you know me, you know that I take every opportunity I can to look as French as possible.
And then - for this shoot. After watching THE ENTIRE SEASON of Stranger Things (my favorite show of the year thus far) I was feeling like I had wasted my entire weekend. (Anyone been there, done that?! Please tell me you have and I’m not the only one!) So I threw on some makeup, doused my hair in dry shampoo, and threw on this dress to shoot with only minutes to spare before it started to rain. Luckily, my Instagram hubby was up for the task and we shot this look in under 5 minutes. Ah, the glamorous world of blogging. Gotta love it.
You can find this dress on one of my favorite indie-designer websites, iSTYLEUP. It’s easily one of my favorite spots to shop for unique pieces online. I have these shoes as well as these sunglasses.
