It was love at first sight when I saw this dress in store. Even though I’m a fan of modern, minimalist looks, I love a girly dress every once in awhile. Unfortunately, I was 9 months pregnant at the time. I passed it up at first thinking it was silly to buy a dress I couldn’t wear now and might not fit into after I had the baby. But I just couldn’t get it out of my head and when I saw it again I had to buy it. Luckily, it still fits post baby!
Unfortunately, since I bought it months ago, that means it’s no longer available. I did find some cute ladylike dress options here, here, and here though! I feel bad that all my outfits lately are featuring out of stock items that I bought months ago but couldn’t fit into! I don’t like to be a tease…lol.
And if you haven’t noticed, I’m doubling up on the polka dots. You can never have enough, right? I also love the color combo of the mint and mustard. And to complete this granny inspired, ladylike outfit, I added a vintage style crossbody bag and pearl drop earrings.

Now onto Flashback Fashion Fridays! Here’s a look from last August. I’m definitely a fan of all white outfits and this one was easy and comfortable for summer. And of course features some pieces from my fav brand – Everlane!
Our picks from last week’s linkup are Kristina from Kristina Does the Internets and Stefani from The Style Safari!
Adri and I would love for you to link up your fashion posts for a chance to be featured next week!
I lvoe the cute little polka dot on polka dot with the scarf on your tiny bag! 🙂
Most of the time I bought things that still worked for me while I was pregnant so I could wear them right away, but a couple of times my bump grew bigger than I planned and couldn’t wear things until after baby arrived. It happens! 🙂
Thank you for the link up!
Hope you are having a good week 🙂

Great to have you back, Jessica! Congrats again on your beautiful baby boy!
Loving the minty color of your dress! Really pretty!
This dress has a really fun vintage feel to it, and sometimes it’s nice to have some pieces in your closet that might not fit what you wear 80% of the time, but still represent a side of you.
That’s a really cute look! I love how you did your hair, and those glasses are just perfect. Also, cute bag. Congrats on your baby boy by the way.
