It’s a problem really but one that makes me happy when I open my closet. As I get older it seems that I need dresses like this more often – baptisms, engagement parties, baby showers, bridal showers – and when it was 60 degrees last weekend I decided to wear this darling floral dress to brunch. 

Wearing this floral dress makes me feel confident. It is a dress that truly defines my personal style. Obviously it is not for everyone (and not what I wear on a daily basis), but I think it is a true storyteller of my style and who I am. Light, bright, happy, youthful, soft, pink. If you ever struggle with how you would define your personal style think about the pieces in your closet that make you feel confident. It is the easiest way to get a clear picture of the things that make you feel like the best version of yourself. Wear those things as often as possible.

I was initially drawn to the bold floral print with the contrast of the black piping on this dress. I should mention that it runs small. I’m wearing a medium and if I wanted more room I could have easily done a large (I think it is closer to junior sizing). I wanted to wear it with my over the knee boots but decided to embrace the warmer temps. This dress also comes in the prettiest shirt which would look super cute with distressed denim and ballet flats for spring. 

I’ve linked a few other dresses that are on my wish list below…

  1. I was looking at this dress the other day I love it! Feel like it would be so cute with a black sweater on top too!

  2. I love the black trimming on this dress! Makes it all pop and adds some nice structure to the floral pattern.

  3. Liz,

    I have been an reader of your blog for a long time. I am a stay at home mom with soon to be 3 kids under 4. Early thirties. Basically not your average fashion girl type. But I like to look at beautiful pictures and follow along with blogger lives. I loved your post about marriage and motherhood. I love, LOVE my babies and my husband but it’s a hard job. Somebody once told me the toughest thing about motherhood is that it’s 24 hours a day and it’s so true. Your fears are greater. “What if something happens to my kids?” “What if I’m not doing this right?” And then there’s the husband component. We used to have such an easy relationship but now he has to share my attention with tiny kids. Money is tighter. Time together is far less.

    I totally agree babysitters here and there are a lifesaver I wish I would’ve started getting when my first was a baby. Other than that, thank you for the fellowship. Thank you for the affordable outfit inspiration for those of us that don’t want cleavage or a ton of leg because you look ridiculous carrying little kids looking like that. If I’m going out, it is to a bridal shower or baptism type of thing and I do want to look pretty but like a pretty thirty year old mom. I’m proud to be that. Thank you for the fitness inspiration. I think you’re doing a wonderful job!
