I've been having way too much fun in this new dress from The Pretty Dress Company! While the weather isn't quite ready for spring, wearing this lemon print beauty reminds me of the warmer days ahead. I've said it many times before: I'm not really a wiggle kind of girl. But these last few Pretty Dress wiggles have completely converted me (you can read my review on the Hepburn wiggle dress HERE). Today's post is dedicated to the Ava and I'm excited to share everything I love about it!

The Ava dress is made from a sturdy stretch cotton elastane, which means it has structure, is breathable, and can hug your curves perfectly. Since I have a 15-inch difference between my waist and hips, I rarely find a cotton wiggle dress that fits both areas. This dress stretched to the shape of my hips (where most other dresses would probably rip) to accommodate my figure perfectly. The Ava is fully lined, features a V-neckline in the front and back, faux shoulder bows, and a slit at the bottom of the skirt for ease of wear. It's finished with a full back zipper so you can easily step into the dress. I went with a size UK8 (which is the same size as all my other Pretty Dress Company styles) and it was the perfect fit. I find that their size chart is incredibly accurate, but has some "wiggle room" due to the stretch in the fabric. If you're unsure about sizing, I would make sure the waist measurement reflects yours. There's a seam at the waist, so there's almost no stretch in that area. For someone who is relatively new to wiggle dresses, this dress was surprisingly comfortable to wear. And thanks to the sleeveless style, you can easily layer it with a cute cardigan to make it office appropriate. This may be my first, but won't be my last Ava dress!
I'm literally waiting for these storms to clear so Bianca and I can make our way back to Disneyland. The Electrical Parade is finally back and I'm dying to take her! She has never enjoyed Disney at nighttime (we're earlybirds) so it will be an exciting night for the both of us. I have a feeling it's going to be one of those "forever memories" so I'll be stalking my weather app until the bid day is here!
