I love that over the last few summers, casual dresses have been in fashion. Chickie has several this season and wants to wear them almost every day.
But for so much of the last few years, I've had a breastfeeding baby, and most dresses just aren't nursing-friendly. (I'm pretty sure the people at my church, as supportive as they've been of me nursing in public, don't want to see me with a dress pulled up and bunched around my neck.)
I realized recently that Zoodle is at the point that I rarely need to nurse him in public. So I decided it was time to go shopping for new dresses! I went to Ross and lucked out. I found two dresses that are both comfy and casual enough to wear on an everyday basis. (And I spent a total of $30 on the two dresses, so the price was definitely right!)
This one is that floor-length, flowy silhouette that is so popular this summer. I'm only 5'2" and didn't think I could get away with a dress this long, but somehow it seems to lengthen me. Very fun!
I almost didn't take this next one off the rack, since I tend to have too many muted colors in my wardrobe. But I decided to try it, and it was just so flattering that I snatched it right up. The jersey knit will be so comfy! And the length is good--it's a couple of inches above my knees, so it makes my legs look longer, but it's not short enough to make me look like I'm trying to be 15 again.
How about you girls? Are you enjoying the dresses that are in fashion this summer?
