Whimsical Blooms

Emily and Fin Flora Dress in Whimsical Blooms Print

I'm keeping the comfy dress streak going with this beauty from Emily and Fin!  Like most ladies, I appreciate anything that feels like pajamas but makes me look like I tried really hard to look good.  This super soft dress not only qualified, but exceeded those expectations.  So if you're like me (lazy but motivated to keep that secret), you can read all about this Flora dress below!

With its 30's inspired cut and gorgeous floral print, I couldn't resist adding this dress to my closet.  While it's made from a light airy fabric, it's fully lined so no added undergarments are needed.  The wide waistband really flatters your curves and the pleated skirt gives enough body without having to wear an underskirt.  Oh, and there are very large pockets as well!  The crossover bust feature was a little too revealing for my modest taste so I pinned it in the center for a higher neckline.  But if you're okay with cleavage, this dress is ridiculously flattering!  I took a size XS and I found the dress to be a little on the larger side.  I tend to be between XXS and XS in Emily and Fin clothing, this was just one of those times I probably could have sized down.  Thankfully, it wasn't large enough for me to exchange and I've been wearing it during these crazy hot summer days.  It's the perfect summer sundress!

I've been up to my ears in what feels like hectic times, but being able to drive alone and take pictures in this beautiful dress somehow calmed my nerves.  While I'm not one to run away from my problems, taking a few minutes alone can truly change your perspective and give you the motivation to take things head on so you can move past them.  To all my mom friends and/or overwhelmed individuals, I highly recommend a drive or walk alone.  It really made my day!
