There’s just nothing like a little red dress to make a gal feel GOOD! I love that this one is so light and breezy, which makes it perfect to wear during these dog days of summer. New York City has been hot, sticky (and a little bit gross) these past few weeks – so I’ve been relying on simple (but still chic) outfits like this to get me through without looking like a (literal) hot mess. I wore this outfit recently for brunch and a bit of window-shopping in midtown. Since I didn’t want to fuss with accessories, I went with a no-brainer monochromatic look. This outfit was definitely a show-stopper while still being relatively simple, and I’m in love with how it turned out.

ABOUT THE FIT:
This dress is true-to-size and doesn’t have much structure, so you could possibly even size down if you like. I’ve had a few dresses like this before that hit above the knee, but I’m digging the midi-length here for a more casual. This dress also comes with a self-tie belt which I removed for maximum volume. I think adding a wide belt and high heels could help this look easily transition to evening.

Truth be told, once I found out I was having a boy, my dreams of adorable mommy and me matching outfits pretty much went out the window… until recently. Color me ecstatic when I was casually perusing the Old Navy website (as one does at 2 o’clock in the morning), and I ran across this matching set. I immediately added this safari print dress and matching romper to my cart, checked out, and finally caught some shut-eye. I was so excited when our outfits finally arrived a few days later. Christian and I wore our matching ensembles for a music playdate and Italian ices in front of the fountain at Lincoln Center – and of course, we just had to do an impromptu photoshoot.

This $18 Dress Will Make You Feel Like a Million Bucks!

It’s no secret that I’m a gal who likes to occasionally splurge and pamper herself… That being said, there is absolutely NO SHAME in my bargain-hunting game! I recently placed a large emergency sundress order (yes, that’s an actual thing – don’t judge!) on Shein.com, and this pretty little frock was one of my favorites out of the bunch. That being said, don’t be surprised if you see me twirl up on the blog in the pink version soon. And at just 18 bucks a pop, can you really blame me?!

I wore this outfit for a family stroll through Central Park, and it was the perfect thing to wear during this hot, sticky NYC summer. Since I knew we’d be going out to an early dinner beforehand, I paired it with a pair of kitten-heeled sandals and a wide-brimmed hat for a bit of extra drama. But this dress would be equally as cute (and comfy) with a pair of canvas sneakers or flat sandals for running errands around the city with a baby in tow.

About the Fit:
This dress is true-to-size, and the top portion is completely shirred which makes it very flattering for a variety of figures (and bustlines). The dress also comes with a matching self-tie belt. The shoulder straps are adjustable, and you could also tuck them in for a strapless look. If you prefer lighter-colored prints this time of year, this dress also comes in both pink and white floral.
