Dresses are probably my favorite thing to wear ever, especially since they’re a “one stop shop” outfit. With limited time to get ready as a mom, you know I’m always looking for hacks and shortcuts on how to still get dressed most days without spending a lot of time. So dresses are a great solution for me, even though most people would probably think a t-shirt and jeans or leggings would be easier. It’s really an illusion. Same thing with a swipe of lipstick and big sunnies.
I wouldn’t necessarily wear this Eliza J dress for a regular day as a stay-at-home mom, but you get what I mean. I would and do wear this faux wrap dress from the same brand at home, though, which is also stretchy but machine-washable.
I’m just excited for our spring and summer weather! A green and pink floral number like this is such a pretty option for a garden wedding, a brunch, or even Mother’s Day coming up. The off-the-shoulder detail is sassy, and the smocking makes it really unique for a woman’s midi dress. It’s comfortable and flattering – what else could be better?!
I paired the dress with my new straw boater hat, white heart-shaped sunglasses (you’re gonna die at the price and order multiple colors like I did), pink tassel earrings, my custom gold Roman numerals cuff, a bamboo statement bag, and nude heels.
My 3-year-old daughter is wearing a pink eyelet cap sleeve button-down dress, pink hair bow, white kids sunglasses, and pink leather moccasins. She’s starting to have opinions on what she wears now (uh-oh, but it’s part of growing up), so she picked the shoes. I rather like her input though. It’s like a little preview of what’s to come as she grows up. I hope she stays just as sweet forever.
By the way, don’t you just love her hair like this? What I do is put her hair in a high ponytail, but then at the last loop I don’t fully let out all her hair. I wrap the small bit of hair that’s left around the base of the ponytail and finish off with a bow. Seriously the easiest “special” hairstyle that takes no more extra time than the usual ponies I do for her.
