So, I never intended for my blog to be a straight-up fashion blog, but my Instagram is full of #OOTD photos, just because I couldn't keep up with blogging enough to keep my IG active! And my captions are sooooo long, so I'm thinking that maybe I should just move them to the blog.
So here we go.
I bought this dress from Forever 21 a few months ago and have been DYING to wear it!!! But I hadn't found the right occasion. I didn't want to waste it on a boring day, but I always had something fancier to wear on my night's out. But, summer is officially over and I needed to take advantage of the weather and get this piece worn!
It's my #3's 2nd birthday today and we spent the morning at Kohl's Children's Museum. It was a very un-relaxing trip, but whatever. My kids had fun. This was an easy choice for today - a special day, but still casual.
There are so many things that I love about this piece. It was great for today's weather, which was hot and super humid! The length is awesome - I love a maxi dress. The high elastic waist hits in just the right spot. But what I love the most is the split. It's got a button-front, but it only buttons down to hip level. Below there, it's free and flowy. And what a fun little surprise when it flows and someone notices you're wearing something underneath it!? It's hard to know right away that it's not just a plain old dress!
What do you think? Do you like???
Until next time,
