August 3, 2018

If there’s one print that just screams summer, it’s gingham. As soon as I spotted this dress at Old Navy, I knew I had to have it. It’s so effortless and classic that I just couldn’t resist. I threw it on over the weekend with red accessories for a stroll through the park with the family and felt perfectly cool and put together.

About the Fit:
This maxi dress fits true-to-size and hits just above the ankle on my 5’7″ frame. I tend to like my maxi dresses to almost sweep the floor for a more dramatic look and considered going with a tall. Unfortunately, it was sold out in my size. In any case, this length makes it a cinch to wear with flats, so I’m not too upset. I love that it has adjustable straps and a smocked elastic backing which means a more custom fit and plenty of stretch to accommodate a large bust.

Target Off-the-Shoulder Dress

There was a time when I used to regularly shop for clothing at Target. But over the past few years I’d let them slip off my radar. That all changed recently when I needed to quickly replenish my wardrobe on the cheap to accomodate my postpartum curves, and I’m so glad Tar-Jay is back in my rotation!

This dress (along with the half a dozen others I purchased around the same time) is officially my jam! I paired it with slides and my signature straw hat and dark shades for a casual brunch in the neighborhood and felt so oh-so-chic. I also plan on bringing this little number along with me during my upcoming summer travels.

About the Fit:
This dress fits true-to-size and is made from a lightweight cotton blend with the tiniest hint of stretch. The dress is unlined, and I’m wearing Spanx underneath for a bit of added coverage and to help contain my mom pooch. Unlike most off-the-shoulder dresses I’ve worn, this one stays in place perfectly without me having to constantly adjust it – a HUGE win in my book!

On the Street {H&M Stripe Maxi Dress}

July 22, 2018

H&M Stripe Maxi Dress, nyc fashion blogger, mommy fashion, nyc mommy blogger{H&M Stripe Maxi Dress (sold out online, but available in stores), J. CREW Straw Tote, LANVIN Sandals}

Sometimes the best things in life only cost $17.99…

I recently purchased this dress from H&M and was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved it when it arrived in the mail. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, it’s hard for me to get out and shop like I used to since having a baby. So I’ve been doing TONS of online shopping as of late. Easy, breezy maxi dresses like these are a lifesaver for me during the summer because they’re so easy to throw on with a pair of sandals and GO!

Keep scrolling for a quick roundup of standout maxi dresses currently available at HM.com. Happy shopping!
